"Hello friends!

– Julie

Everyone has problems from time to time, and sometimes we need a little bit of help to get through the rough spots.

That’s where Biblical Counseling comes in. Biblical Counseling is intensive discipleship. It is seeking deeply after God’s wisdom in His Word to find His solutions to life’s problems.

Here at Biblical Counseling for Women, we seek to encourage you, challenge you, and champion you on in this beautiful journey through our writing. Join us!

In Spite of How I Feel

The choice to obey or disobey is presented in what we are called to do and the attitude that we bring to obedience.

Glorifying God in Conflict

Peacemaking is a large part of being a biblical counselor or discipler. Have you been in the position to be a peacemaker yet? In the Beatitudes, Jesus says, "Blessed are the peacemakers, for they shall be called the children of God" (Matthew 5:9). As always, we must...

Judgment No More

Matthew 7:3-5 reminds us that the sin we see in others pales in comparison to the level of deception we have about our own sinfulness.

Rethinking Adversity & Tragedy

God works everything to the praise of His glory, which is the greatest good. And for those who love Him, He also works everything for their welfare.

I Know What God Says, But I Don’t Believe Him

When doubts are consuming you, make a choice to believe God. Trust in the Lord with all your heart and do not lean on your own understanding (Proverbs 3:5).

Wandering Sheep, Part 5

The disciplinary process set forth in Matthew 18 is not to be carried out in anger or vengeance; it is the most loving thing the Church can do for her own – even the act of putting the unrepentant sinner out of the fellowship as an unbeliever.

The Wandering Sheep, Part 4

The goal in the conflict remains repentance for the sinner, reconciliation with God and man, and restoration to the fellowship of the church and the family.

The Wandering Sheep, Part 3

Continue to urge repentance until you are confident it will do no good. Enlist the help of other believing family members, if you can, and prayer from those you trust.

The Wandering Sheep, Part 2

Asking questions aimed at the heart is much more effective than making statements at them.

The Wandering Sheep, Part 1

The goal in all Christian relationships is the reconciliation and restoration of the sinning brother or sister to the fellowship of believers. In undertaking any disciplinary action, the motive is not “punishment” but love.

Principles of Communication

Something that may surprise you is that good communication begins with listening.

Surrender in Suffering

Trials are intended to weaken us in our humanity and strengthen us spiritually.

Ready for the Return

I am surrounded by all the business of Christmas. My tree is lit, the lights are in the windows, the cookies and candy are ready, the gifts are under the beautiful tree. All day long people have been asking, "Well, are you ready for Christmas?" I have been answering,...

Biblical Communication

Our speech is a powerful tool for either good or bad.

The Face of Bitterness

The faces of bitterness comes from the heart. A woman with a bitter heart is in deep spiritual difficulty because her heart has ceased to be focused on God or His good working in her life.

The Seared Conscience

When discussing guilt, we have to address the issue of a person who knows they are doing wrong, but apparently feels no guilt for it. This is biblically known as having a seared conscience.

Book Review: Legal Issues in Biblical Counseling

As the director of a Biblical Counseling Center during a time in history amid a cultural revolution, I am faced with an ever-changing and complex legal landscape. Therefore, when I received this book, I dove into it excitedly.

The Practice of Self-Control

To be successful in the area of self-control, every aspect of our lives is to be governed by the Holy Spirit because being self-controlled is not a part of out normal make-up.

When God Doesn’t Give You What You Want

Do you really believe He plans all things for good, primarily to conform you to the image of His Son (Romans 8:28-29)? When that unrighteous anger starts to creep in, humble yourself, remembering that He is the potter and we are the clay (Isaiah 64:8).

Suffering Biblically

Suffering biblically looks like no longer denying that you are suffering.
