"A wise (person) will hear and increase understanding. And a (person) of understanding will acquire wise counsel"Proverbs 1:5(NASB)


"…woe to the one who falls when there is not another to lift (them) up.."Ecclesiastes 4:10b (NASB)

Living life can be exciting, challenging and fulfilling. But living life also includes times of stress, discouragement and pain. Family pressure, work related pressure, difficult decisions, unhealthy patterns and other problems can become unmanageable in everyone’s life.

There are times when seeking wise counsel about how we are managing these stresses can be helpful and lead us to live healthier and more fulfilling lives. All of us may benefit from time to time from some wise counsel about how we are managing our lives.

Spirit of Hope is here for you!
