Women Giving Wise Counsel

Here are some key points and resources that were shared at our Workshop this morning!

Our Goals in Counseling

  • To help our sister come to a closer relationship with Christ through this struggle or sin
  • To encourage restoration in relationships
  • To plead for repentance from sin
  • To model and urge obedience to Christ
  • To teach that her joy can be firmly rooted in Christ, not circumstances
  • NOT to fix or force... let the Holy Spirit do His work and you do yours

5 Practical Tips for Wise Counsel

  2. Look for key Gospel words
  3. Identify her identity
  4. Renew stinkin' thinkin' - Philippians 4
  5. Let God fix things: point her to Him
