We are so excited to get this ministry page back up and running, with great expectations that it will bring encouragement and hope to each person who comes across the page. Here is a quick word from our founder, Dr. Julie Ganschow:

"Hello friends!

I am so excited for the re-launch of BC4Women! The blogs have a fresh, new face and the topics have been updated to meet the current needs and interests of our community. You’ll find new authors and old familiar ones whose writing you have grown to trust and appreciate. It is my pleasure to unveil the face of our ministry specifically to the women of God. I hope and pray you find help, healing, and hope here!”
– 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!

Suffering & the Sovereignty of God

The suffering we endure is not as much about us as it is about Him and the glory He reveals through us as we suffer.

Suffering – A Result of Persecution

Suffering can often be a result of persecution for one’s faith, from the foreign nations to the inside of a home.

Suffering – A Result of Others

Christ Himself said that we will have trouble in this world, but we can take hope because He has overcome the world (John 16:33).

Suffering — A Result of Sin

God’s handling of us when we sin is instructive and intentional. The consequences we bear are intended to help us to grow and change.

How Do You Suffer?

Regardless of what the type of suffering is, it is important to understand that God is in charge of it.

Suffering Well

While it is not necessary for us to experience all kinds of suffering to minister to one another, God in His providence allows us to endure trials of many kinds so we can do just that.

Are You Wise in Your Own Eyes?

If we are His children, then as we read His Word, God will bring conviction to us and help us see it in our own lives.

A Heart of Selflessness

A desire to serve God is a manifestation of His grace in your life. We can not conjure up these desires in the flesh.

Learning to Lament

You can stop guarding your pain, hurt, or past, and you can give it to God, and by faith trust Him to work on your behalf.

Considering Guilt: True or False?

When a person feels guilty without cause, we say they may be suffering from what Scripture calls a weak conscience. This is triggered by something other than the Word of God.

A Biblical Understanding of Guilt

The reason we hurt each other and feel guilt is because we are sinners in need of a Savior. Our greatest fundamental need is to be saved first, and then to walk in a way that honors God — for that is love.

I’ve Had Enough, Lord

Christ is the confident expectation of the Christ follower because our hope is based on the finished work of Christ and the unfailing promises of God.

Convinced in Suffering

Trust in God today to bring you through trial and hardship to the full assurance of hope.

Assurance of Hope

When your response to trials is correct, they will result in a mature, complete confidence in God’s eternal purposes in your life. This can be your greatest source of joy.

Don’t Take It Personally

The next time you find yourself asking, “why me?,” don’t take it personally. Answer yourself biblically: this trial is for my good and God’s glory.

Beyond Feelings

Foundational to any desire to change habits is the ability to preach truth to yourself and get beyond your feelings.

Refusing Idleness

Once we become idle, sin manifests itself in many forms.

Dr. Julie Ganschow with Bob Kellemen About “Equipping Biblical Counselors”

Dr. Julie Ganschow: “Bob, what’s the big idea behind Equipping Biblical Counselors: A Guide to Discipling Believers for One-Another Ministry? What would you like readers to take away from the book?” Bob Kellemen: “I had two assumptions as I wrote the book. First,...

Respectable Sins Revelation

Living free in Christ while in a decadent society gives me all the latitude I need to reveal the areas of my heart that continue to need work.

A Life Lived by Dying

Being crucified with Christ says that I have died to all the worldly passions and desires and means that those things are literally dead to me.
