Like personal trainers, they use biblical principles, stories, and research findings to give you effective tools to live in peace and freedom through the healing power of Jesus Christ.

“God is not just interested in our souls; He wraps his salvation around the Whole person. This is why the mind, body, spirit approach to handling worry is essential for wholeness and healing. Worry-Free Living is a biblically grounded book that provides helpful, practical tools for families. And the couple and group discussion worksheets, paired with the Bible studies, make this a valuable resource for churches.”
