Josh was a compassionate companion as I explored and prayed through the decision to step out of pastoral ministry. Josh was an empathetic listener and he asked poignant questions. He helped me externalize thoughts and emotions and helped me understand how those thoughts and emotions were preventing me from moving forward and following the call that God had sent in front of me. I appreciated that he gave me thought and prayer exercises that I could use during the week. He was gentle, yet challenging, which is exactly what I needed from him at that time.
Working with Josh the past four months has brought so much clarity into my life. I came to Josh to boost my confidence and self- esteem, but I have learned much more. I am discovering how to cast aside feelings of shame, guilt, and self doubt. I am more confident in myself and my abilities. Josh has helped me to see that God has made me in His image and because of that, I am enough, I am valued, and I am worthy. What I thought was going to be a couple sessions on standing by my decisions turned into a healing process that has strengthened me mentally, emotionally and spiritually. Josh teaches me about how God has specifically created me and I am understanding that “I am fearfully and wonderfully made” (Psalm 139:14). Every session brings more understanding of myself and how God is walking alongside me to heal wounds and change my thinking. Josh thank you so much for everything! I am truly grateful.
