Searching for Truth in Trauma

Hello! I’m Leah

A Counselor in Training

A bio usually includes a list of degrees, years of service and other valuable ways to measure qualifications. The development of this website finds me just getting started on all of those things. I do however, have some experience. Since childhood I have had the formidable desire to step into the emotions of others. I run toward those who are hurting when some would run away. My husband and I were in full-time ministry for fifteen years and I served on a church staff for two years. More recently, three years working at Covenant College was a turning point. While administrative in description my job evolved into discipleship. Days filled with conversations sharing life with students renewed a calling in me that had previously lain dormant. Now, I’m working toward a degree that will help open doors in order to merge this area of personal giftedness and occupation.

Biblical Truth

A Bachelor’s Degree in Biblical Counseling ingrained in me the necessity of applying Biblical truth to the difficulties in life. We are broken sinful people and sin is inevitable and ever present in all of our hearts. God is faithful to preserve His people and provide comfort in the midst of devastating brokenness.

Scientific Fact

Just as God created stars and human form that gave astronomers the calendar and physicians understanding of anatomy, so did he allow facts around our mind and behavior to have consistencies that provide sustainable patterns. It is helpful to hypothesize, test and learn more about these patterns of behavior.

Life Experience

Events in life can stick with us and adjust our perspective on all other aspects of life. Some events are tragic and cause suffering that must be revisited. Often times, for true healing to take place, we need a third party to step into our suffering with us and provide a different perspective.

It’s easy these days to passionately proclaim our differences.A helpful catalyst may be to remember some of the core ways we are all very similar.

When my daughter was little, she taught me a great deal about patience. As she's grown and evolved into the woman she is today, she's shown me how to look at the world through a wider lens. Her work over the last two-plus years bears witness to her ability to see life...

I didn’t know I had racial bias until someone told me there’s no way I could have escaped the effect of cultural atrocities ingrained in our country. This hidden bias is catastrophic to my heart and soul. It must be sought out and consistently battled

During this uncertain time, this bird is building her nest on the kindness of an all-controlling God who can’t help but be good to a daughter whom he adores.

Brass tacks: your kids and my kids will likely be introduced to inappropriate images, video and verbiage through their own curiosity or their peers encouragement. This will likely happen before they graduate from high school.

Last week, my son’s iPad kissed the concrete. While it still can be sort of used for Netflix, he lamented it was no longer usable for notes in math. His teacher talks too fast for him to type Algebra problems on his Chromebook using a mouse and it was easier to type...
