The Christian counselor or pastor plays an important role in helping people process the trauma they’ve experienced. Too often, a client leaves the counselor’s office with feelings of guilt and shame. They feel the heavy burden of what they did wrong. But somehow, they’ve missed the grace of God that makes things right again. Join us to learn how to create a counseling model that stays true to a biblical worldview that overflows with grace . . . not cheap grace, but real grace that acknowledges sin while offering a hopeful path to redemption and healing.
Who do you want to become? What kind of impact do you want to make—at work, in your community, in the world at large? What is the legacy you want to leave?

The first woman ever to represent a Top 5 pick in the NFL Draft, career success is a priority for her—but even more, her agency was founded on helping her clients discover who God really called them to be, finding their true purpose in life beyond the field. Join us to hear her fascinating story.
