We all give counsel

This course will help you gain an understanding from God’s Word that will change the way you give that counsel. The Bible affirms that it is sufficient to provide us the means and guidance to live life the way God intended.

As you gain an understanding of that through this course, it will equip you to understand the problems of life from God’s perspective and seek solutions and change in the way God prescribes.

Whether you take additional courses to become a formal biblical counselor or not, this basic course is highly recommended. It will help you process life better, transform your relationships and equip you to help others to do the same.
