We were designed to live in a garden within a community of people who connect and relate in such a way as to touch our souls — that is, we desire to love and to be loved genuinely. In reality, we often live alone and thirsty in the wilderness, or worse yet, decimated in a war zone. Relationships with our families, friends, co-workers, schoolmates/teachers and/or church may be filled with trauma, anxiety, betrayal or bitter disappointment. There are losses of all kinds, including death, taking its toll day-by-day. On-going, long-term relational problems may seem to be resolved on the surface, but unfortunately, often times, are just buried with the residual effects still remaining. Our souls may be in a state of brokenness, completely shut down, or in anger, rage and/or grief or in a low-grade walk through life. Strategies that had once worked to make life work may actually be working against that hoped-for relief. If you are ready to face what is troubling your soul, please call Kathleen Gauthier who offers a Master of Arts in Biblical Counseling from Colorado Christian University and Master of Arts from Crown College, where she specialized in counseling with an internship in grief counseling. She has varied life experiences including youth ministry and Christian education, with an interest in bringing God’s perspective to life’s difficult events and passages. The answers may surprise you.
