Mother, Teacher, Mentor, Preacher

There are only 168 hours in a week in which to accomplish life. For the average woman who has children, every one of those precious hours is used in the caring of her children, her home, her marriage, and her faith. Not much is leftover for herself. “The Godly walk with integrity; blessed are their children who follow them.” Proverbs 20:7 One of the most enjoyable benefits of my being a therapist is to work with young women who are looking to improve their lives.

A person should be loved by family 2. A person should be admired by coworkers

The New Norm

The Las Vegas shooting has left many people dead and an unknown number of wounded people across the country, and dare I say, across the world? Friends and family have been touched by the news of loved ones who where there, who now are living in fear as the reality that no place is safe from the potential of danger and violence. The days of consistency and peace seem to be distant memories in a world where we are being assaulted by terrorists of our own making here in the USA. I recently saw that America is experiencing 20 unprovoked gun assaults every year. So, I wanted to inform you that Encouragers is here to help. If you or a loved one needs counseling, the California Victims Compensation
