Our world is reeling from wars, famine, and financial distress. People are suffering with loneliness, addictions, and abuse. Homes are broken and hearts are wounded. Where does one even begin to make a dent in the distress? It begins in the heart and the home. Healing comes to individuals who then affect their environment and promote change and further healing. There is hope and help. I know because I am one of the healed. Now I turn to offer the truths I gleaned through years of study and application. It is my hope and my goal to inspire you to personal changes which open the door of your heart to receive the healing God has for you with the potential to spill over with healing for your family and home.
