By Marti Wibbels, MS, LMHC | January 19, 2022

Being Present in the New Year Marti Wibbels, MS, LMHC A new year is a little bit like welcoming guests to our homes. We can choose to embrace 2022 with anticipation or live in persistent stress.

By Marti Wibbels, MS, LMHC | December 13, 2021

From Womb to Tomb

By Marti Wibbels, MS, LMHC | November 8, 2021

From Womb to Tomb Marti Wibbels, MS, LMHC Throughout the world, Job’s story is synonymous with suffering.

The…

Moving from Stress to Rest Marti Wibbels, MS, LMHC How do we move from doubts to peace, from stress to rest? How can we live as new creations in a world filled with despair? We need to remember the character of God and the design of His Church! God said, I have loved you with…

Living Beyond Clouds

By Marti Wibbels, MS, LMHC | September 17, 2021

Living Beyond Clouds Marti Wibbels, MS, LMHC Today, when someone mentions the “cloud,” it’s usually referring to a place to store data.

Clouds are those sorrows or sufferings or providences, within or without our personal…
