Paul cautioned that in the final day of judgment, every Christian will give an account for his or her actions. Join Dawn and Steve for a devotional from Blackaby Ministries International about our accountability to God.
Also this hour, Phil Herndon of the Rivertree Center is here to discuss how we can process hurt and grief over missed opportunities from a biblical perspective.
Phil uses a dynamic approach to help his clients recover their hearts and redeem their stories. His therapeutic approach is grounded in the Spiritual Root System™, and is informed by the work of Irvin Yalom, Curt Thompson, Dan Siegel, and Dan Allender. He also integrates perspectives from Judeo-Christian traditions, existential philosophy, and pastoral care. Phil works with individuals who have lost their way through addiction, anxiety, depression, struggles with spirituality, or burnout to walk them through the tumultuous and scary times that are so common to the human experience.
Phil completed graduate school in 1992 with a Master of Arts degree in counseling and religious education. He served as a pastor in Texas for 15 years until joining the Center for Professional Excellence in 2005 where he served as Clinical Director until 2020. Phil became the Clinical Director and co-owner of (what is now) River Tree in 2020 and loves his role in developing, encouraging, and equipping the staff as they walk with people through their life journeys. Phil lives in Murfreesboro with his wife Sheila and they have one son, Luke.
