The Journey of a Christian Counselor is written for the individual who feels drawn by the Holy Spirit to counsel, with or without formal training in the profession. It is a story within a story, a chronology of the spiritual and professional journey of a young woman searching for the meaning of a vision that she saw at the birth of her son.
This vision changed her life, but it was not until the brutal death of her son that she gained the courage to release the vision and accept its purpose in her life.
