Is Anger Good or Bad?

By Lana Lyman | May 4, 2024

It’s been said that anger is one of the most fundamental negative emotions. Just hearing the word, most of us immediately think of a negative experience we’ve had with it. We typically don’t like the word and often want to disguise anger by using other words such as annoyed, perturbed, aggravated, peeved, hurt, or frustrated. However, knowing that anger is not necessarily a negative emotion is helpful. Anger can have a very positive function. It’s how we express our anger that makes it negative or positive. God designed anger to have a positive function; we tend to misuse it most of the time. What does God say about this emotion? Ephesians 4:26, “Be angry, and do not sin: do not let the…

By Daniel Sirstad | March 2, 2024

Or, at least, what the amygdala manages, which is the fight, flight or freeze sensory part of the brain.  I understand most folks do not go through the day with this question being a top-of-mind priority. But, since you…

Client Testimonials

Since this month is pastor appreciation, I wanted to let you know I appreciate your counsel. I realize you are not my pastor but I felt this was an appropriate time to show my appreciation.

Looking back, I can see how fragile and confused I was when I made the first call. I had difficulty even making the call. To be truthful, I was very apprehensive about starting counseling. By the second session, I knew I had made the right choice. In the midst of the most difficult year of my life, I feel I have grown emotionally and spiritually. I have more understanding about whom I am and a deeper relationship with God.

Thank you for providing Godly counsel and taking the time to help a broken individual sort though all kinds of emotions, so healing could take place.

I just wanted to take the time to say… Thank you!
