Spiritual Warfare ~ fighting the unseen battles... generational curses... sexual abuse... addictions... suicidal thoughts... etc...
Put on your armor.....
SPIRITUAL WARFARE....

Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord and in the power of His might.  Put on the whole armor of God, that you may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil.  For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this age, against spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places. Therefore take up the whole armor of God, that you may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand.  Stand therefore, having girded your waist with truth, having put on the breastplate of righteousness,  and having shod your feet with the preparation of the gospel of peace;  above all, taking the shield of faith with which you will be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked one. And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God; praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, being watchful to this end with all perseverance and supplication for all the saints—
~Ephesians 6~

Doorways.....the different ways we open ourselves up to demonic influences, understanding spiritual warfare, looking at generational curses..

For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms.
~Ephesians 6:12~

DEALING WITH OUR OWN PAST.....

Together Forever....What would you say if you had to talk to yourself when you were a little child...how would you be there for them and what you went through?


...Out of all the years in counseling, reading, classes, etc. that I have gone through... nothing has pulled it all together... made more sense... confirmed God's Word... created real change in me than this program.  It's called Lifeskills International . I found it at the Church I was attending while going through DivorceCare.  It made sense of my issues... the problems in my two failed marriages... and completely made sense in the raising of my two adopted kids with severe emotional problems.  I cannot recommend this program enough.  No matter what you are going through, it will make what is going on in your relationships understandable.
