We use the Bible to help those struggling with depression, anxiety, anger, addictions, marriage or family problems.
The letter of James teaches us how faith in the grace of our Lord, Jesus Christ, produces works which mature our faith even more. James gives many practical applications for our lives, both inspiring and convicting. He teaches us to respond to Christ's love in a way that makes a positive difference in our lives.
And so we have the prophetic word confirmed, which you do well to heed as a light that shines in a dark place, until the day dawns and the morning star rises in your hearts.
2 Peter 1:19

For the message of the cross is foolishness to those who are perishing, but to us who are being saved it is the power of God.
1 Corinthians 1:18
Crossing Attitudes is a Bible study that was developed after many years of counseling. It explores how the cross of Christ should affect our daily attitudes including depression, anxiety, anger, habitual sins, and more. Learn how hearts can be healed through the truth of God’s Word.
Peter is one of the most interesting men in the Bible. We see his faith grow from uncertainty in the Gospels to becoming a powerhouse for Christ at the end of his life when he wrote these two letters.
Some of the topics covered in this study are:
~ How do we respond to a world full of darkness? Sin invades every aspect of our lives, from our families, to our jobs, to our government. How can we be a living light in a dark place?
~ Marriage – Particularly leadership and submission. After many years of marriage counseling, I tell you that 1 Peter 3 is very misunderstood by Christians, both women and men. I Biblically unravel issues such as being a doormat or being overly controlling.
~ 2nd Peter is an apologetic study to help us discern several false doctrines. At the end of 2nd Peter is a teaching on Mormonism. Being an ex-Mormon who grew up in Salt Lake City, I give my testimony of growing up in the LDS church. I discuss how they use the same words we do, for example “grace,” but to them those words mean something very different than what the Bible teaches.
Enjoy these Bible studies for your personal growth in Christ or as part of a small group Bible study.
