Biblical Counseling for Women

We are passionate about the critical need for heart change in order to see true life change.

Welcome to Biblical Counseling for Women!

If you’re a long-time visitor, you’ll notice things look a bit different around here, and that’s right – Biblical Counseling for Women just got a whole new makeover! 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!

Dealing With My Innocent Past

Identity and answers for the problems that plague the soul are found in Christ. If you are a Christian, you have a new identity, and to embrace it, you must begin to learn that what the Bible says is true about you.

Are You Self-Deceived?

Our hearts often tell us that we are better, smarter, more right, and more deserving than we really are. That pride, which seems to be fighting for our good, is actually harming us.

Are You Discontent Today?

Because of Christ, you can be content. It will not be easy to change the thoughts and intentions of your heart from self-gratification to God-glorification, but the Holy Spirit will help you.

Who Owns You?

Begin to live as though He owns you. It is a sweet kind of bondage.

The Weight of Dreams

When I began in ministry and began this blog, I had no experience in founding a corporation or directing a biblical counseling ministry. Although I was a young mom with the equivalent of an Associates's Degree in Bible, a few years of being the director of a women's...

Yet I Found Mercy …

I live every day with the knowledge that I found mercy for the sake of others. So, likewise, I found mercy for your sake, dear reader.

God gently says, “Is anything impossible for the LORD?”

Cookie Cutter Ending

During that dark time, God brought us many allies, many brothers and sisters in Christ, for which we remain ever thankful.

The Lord Knows

Every worry, every doubt, every mountain overcome.

Praying with Conviction

What Colors Our Prayers? I was reminded recently of my cousin who attended the local university where I grew up. He lived in an all men’s dorm at the time. There was one fellow who really wanted to be married. He started praying for a wife and as time passed felt...

A Plea To Read

“When suffering comes, we can be left with little, if any, foundation to stand on if we have not been careful to include regular times of reading and study of God’s word.”

Wolves Among Sheep

When the aim of the counselee changes from how I can feel better about my situation to one of a desire to grow and change to become Christ-like, wonderful things will happen.

To Be Like Enoch…

He walked close enough to God to walk into eternity.

Choices

Which brother are we like?

Cain, who proudly thought he was good enough to approach God on his own merits or,
Abel, who realized his great need and humbly brought the sacrifice that God required.

Faith in the Creator

Take comfort that His creation is all around us to remind us of who He is and what He is capable of. He has not left us here alone. He has a purpose and a plan.

Faith Crisis

We never doubted that we would spend a week at the lake. The minute my sisters and I got into the car with our suitcases we were already at the lake.

The Truth Shall Set You Free

…often, these “Christian” books written for women assist in feeding our flesh and promoting self-help.

Living in an Emotionally Abusive Marriage

Abuse is not a marriage issue, it is an issue of the heart between the abuser and God, as well as between the abused spouse and God.

Beware the Tongue — Communication on Fire

...the tongue is a small part of the body, but it makes great boasts. Consider what a great forest is set on fire by a small spark. The tongue also is a fire, a world of evil among the parts of the body. It corrupts the whole body, sets the whole course of one’s life...

One Hit Wonder — The Impact of a Single Song

. . . he was drawing himself back to the gospel.
