Thank you for visiting BibleTherapy.com. This section has articles and information on Biblical Counseling, Biblical Change, Counseling Errors, Sexual Addiction, Counseling Theories and other counseling topics. Our goal is to provide articles and information to help individuals deal with problems and issues from a Biblical foundation and perspective.
There currently are 'hundreds' of psychology theories that differ on how to bring change and what causes personal or interpersonal problems. Most are opposed not only to each other, but take a very unbiblical view of how to help others.
Thank you for visiting. We have a small set of Theology websites that are divided or separated by category (though there is some overlap).

Practical Love in Crisis Situations
Today CCEF.org features a guest blog writer, CCEF student Jennifer Fountain. Here she shares wise ways to care for those who have a child in the hospital.

You want to help and be a blessing, but what can you do?

And though we were overjoyed to finally meet and love on our babies, we discovered life was nothing like we had anticipated. It was a whirlwind of emotions—both crushing and exhilarating. It was a daily, and sometimes hourly, fight to trust God and keep perspective. We were consumed with being near our babies and learning to care for them. This meant that a lot of things fell by the wayside. And this is where our church friends and family stepped in! Everyone wanted to help, visit, and know what they could do to ease our burdens. Here are some of the many helpful ways we were served, as well as ideas others have shared with us:
