Apostolic Moral Purity

By Daniel Sirstad | April 3, 2021

Apostolic Moral Purity “I desire therefore that the men pray everywhere, lifting up holy hands, without wrath and doubting;” (1 Timothy 2:8). Paul gives men three requirements to be a godly man: Lift up holy hands in prayer. (Having a body free from sin.) Worship without anger. (Have a spirit free from anger.) Worship without…

I Love You Too!

By Daniel Sirstad | March 6, 2021

I Love You Too! Within most relationships, one person is the primary initiator, and the other is the responder. For example, in the area of affection, one spouse says, “I love you,” and the other spouse responds by saying, “I love you, too.” The initiating spouse will reach out their hand first, and the other…

Perfect Love

By Daniel Sirstad | February 6, 2021

Perfect Love What is perfect love? It seems reasonable for the beloved disciple to be the only one to write about perfect love (1 John 4:18). I have been curious about this descriptive term for much of my life. Perfect love is not where a relationship starts. As a teenager, I remember my mother brushing…

Perfect Peace

By Daniel Sirstad | January 2, 2021

Perfect Peace At the beginning of this new year, my wish is for perfect peace to saturate every home. The Apostle Paul, in his epistle to the Philippians, refers to a peace that passeth all understanding (4:7). An incomprehensible peace. Isaiah refers to such peace. “Thou wilt keep him in perfect peace, Whose mind is…

Learn to Listen!

By Daniel Sirstad | December 5, 2020

I may have just lost the majority of my massive reading audience using the word “learn.” Compound that with the word “Listen,” and maybe I should stop right here. I’m not sure which is more distasteful to folks: learning or listening—probably learning. However, listening is a more formidable challenge for many. Any healthy relationship is…

Are Grandparents Really That Important?

By Daniel Sirstad | November 7, 2020

Are grandparents really that important? Grandparents are important because grandchildren are important. A special dynamic only exists between grandparents and grandchildren that does not exist between a parent and child. I have filled the role of child, grandchild, parent, and grandparent. As a child, most of the time, I looked forward to spending time with…

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!
