Wednesday Stories of Impact
Man sitting in chair with head in hand.

All of us will experience pain and brokenness at some point in our lives because we live in a fallen world. Most people have a variety of past wounds. These wounds frequently have a negative impact on our emotions, thoughts, behaviors, and relationships.

When you seek the help of a counselor, you want to know that he or she lives by the biblical principles you hold dear. Life's low points put us in a vulnerable position.

One of the ministry partners that Pizza Ranch supports is Bethesda Christian Counseling. They “believe that therapy is a two stage process that involves both healing and growth.” Their mission statement is “Bethesda Christian Counseling Midwest, Inc. was established for the purpose of restoring and sustaining wholeness in the lives of all people in the name of Christ. Such wholeness is directed toward helping clients achieve more satisfying and productive lives in the contexts of their family, church, community and work place. This mission is accomplished in a Christian environment that is grace filled, secure, caring, confidential, professional, and respectful of each person's life journey.”

Bethesda Christian Counseling believes that pain in our lives, though never sought after or desired, can be redemptive. In other words, God can use our pain to bring us to greater levels of emotional, mental, spiritual, and marital health. Therefore, the elimination of painful symptoms in our clients is not the goal of therapy. Rather, once our clients come to the place of an absence of their pain, we ask them to learn new life patterns and skills that will help them maintain their mental, spiritual, and marital health well into their futures.

Bethesda Christian Counseling understands that during these times, more than ever, we need someone who will understand and guide us back to a positive life path that is not only fulfilling in emotional, physical and mental needs but in spiritual needs as well.
