Keep the “Christ” in Christmas: Forgiveness

Tuesday, December 19, 2017
by Kristen Caldwell, MA, LPC Candidate It may be true that Jesus Christ was not born in the month of December and that all of our celebrating of his birth during Christmas is rather inaccurate, but, even so, I doubt Christ himself would say “humbug” to such a remembrance. Perhaps the holiday season is an even greater time to keep Christ uppermost in our minds. The holidays can quick ... Read More

Tuesday, November 14, 2017
by Michelle Garrett, MS, LMFT This year with Thanksgiving fast approaching, I found myself looking differently at things. Thanksgiving serves as a grand entrance to the Holiday Season. And, yet to so many, this holiday of gratitude marks the beginning of a very stressful time of year.

What is your “Buddy Holly?”

Friday, October 06, 2017
By Kevin Tutty, MA, LPC A couple of months ago, my wife decided to expand our son’s horizons to include classic Rock and Roll. It started when my 7year-old didn't know who Elvis Presley was, so she decided to introduce both of them to “The King.” Then, she wanted to continue, so next was Buddy Holly. I didn’t think Buddy Holly music was my kind of music necessarily, but it grew on m ... Read More
