ABOUT

Brenda has been married to David for 34 years. Together they have twin adult sons who, through marriage, have added two wonderful daughters to their family. They have also been blessed with the joy of a granddaughter!
For over thirty years Brenda served in church ministry as a pastor’s wife, connecting with women through counseling and women’s ministry.

FEATURED RESOURCES

Family Hurt, Generational Trauma and the Holidays

All emotions share important information with us and can help us understand the healing work that is needed. Many of us need help in moving truth from our heads to our hearts. If this is true for you, as it is for many of us that have experienced familial hurt, generational trauma, or abuse, I encourage you to seek out counseling care. 

Back to School: Comforting the Anxious Student

Scripture teaches us a lot on the topic of anxiety, offering us particular guidance on what a whole person approach to anxiety can look like. We can use this wisdom to access practical strategies to equip and care for our students, especially if we know that this is an area of struggle before the school year starts.
