Thoughts for Young Counselors

Nate Brooks

Nate Brooks

Many of us who counsel do not have the advantage of chronology. In the shape of God’s ideal design, grey hair and wisdom run on parallel tracks (Prov. 16:31). There are times, however, that we find ourselves counseling individuals who far outrank us in terms of years lived, anniversaries celebrated, and children raised. Continue reading

Is The Bible Taking a Back Seat in Your Counseling

Stuart Scott

Stuart Scott

Biblical counselors would be the first to affirm that God’s Word is the source of our counseling and the Spirit’s agent for change. But are we communicating that in an effective way to our counselees in our actual practice? Are we really depending on the power of God through His Word to arrest, comfort, and transform hearts?

My wife and I have a burden for the next generation of youth growing up in a much different world than we did. We are parents of three children between the ages of nine and sixteen. I am a former child psychologist. This has stirred up in me a strong desire to see biblical counselors take a more serious look at how we can help kids and their parents navigate a very distracting and disturbing world using a biblical worldview. Biblical counseling can help our kids not fall victim to the rampant fear, perversity, and despair that is all around them. Even more, it can equip them to be world changers for Jesus Christ.
