Are you feeling overwhelmed by darkness? None of us gets through life wound-free. But for some of us, the wounds and crises lead into a long, dark tunnel of pain from which suicide seems to be the only way out. Our guest will offer a Christ-centered approach to the problem of suicide, arriving at a solution that is both clinical and pastoral. If someone you love is struggling with pain or if you are entertaining the idea of ending your own life, this conversation is for you. The pain is real, but so is the solution and there is a path forward out of the darkness.
Do you sometimes feel so stuck in an endless cycle of meeting everyone else’s needs and expectations that you lose sight of your own? You don’t have to stay stuck, overwhelmed, or defeated. Our guest today will reveal breakthrough strategies to discover your true self, find your voice, set limits, and find the path to the life and relationships that God designed for you to enjoy.
