Children are taught to avoid toxins—whether in plants or household chemicals. We’ve learned to steer clear of poison ivy and venomous snakes and avoid plunging our hands into boiling water or our forks into electric outlets. But we miss the deadliest toxins of all each time we think destructive thoughts. Toxic mental habits can fuel ever-increasing levels of depression, anxiety, self-pity, or despair. On Tuesday's Mornings with Eric and Brigitte, licensed professional counselor, Marti Wibbels shares with us that amid fear, anxiety, depression, anger, discouragement, or despair, we can transform toxic thoughts by applying God’s Word to our concerns.
Christine Koester grew up in a toxic, dysfunctional family, constantly exposed to gangs, drugs, organized crime, and illegal activities. She thought that kind of life was normal. With her history, Christine never imagined that she would be graduating from Trinity International University in spring 2022 with a bachelor’s degree in Psychology and a minor in Christian Ministries. Today, Christine works in a drug treatment program at her church as a recovery vision team leader. After graduation, she has ambitions of going on to earn a master’s degree in Social Work, and she wants to continue to help people in situations like hers find healing and hope.
