    I just want to know if you can recommend christian books to help support family members with mental illness and encourage them to get help? My mother in law is mentally ill and I need to know how to support her and the only son who has been a victim of abuse and ridicule as a child.

    Hi, I really appreciated your PPT slides for Be anxious for nothing? and was curious if there’s a mp3 that would go with it. Thanks

    I am teaching in a midwifery Conference for Midwives Alliance of North America next week and a few of your slides do a great job of simplifying responses to trauma survivors in a way that is attainable. May I use them with attributions and may I change any wording, when needed, to be more specific to health care providers that I am addressing? do you want attribution on each slide or in the Bibliography?

    • Great! Give fair attribution in your eyes, and that will be fine. Would love to see how your slides just to learn about your context. Thanks for asking.

  7. Phil,
    Thank you for generously posting these wonderful resources. I have referred multiple people to your website to review your work. I am going to be making your journal article and PPT on applying Scripture in counseling required reading for people who come through our program. If there is anything I need to do other than refer them to this public website let me know so I can give proper credit. Thanks for your thoughtful articulation of a biblical-theological framework to apply the gospel through an appropriate use of Scripture. Blessings to you.


    • Thank you Daniel for asking and for the kind words. You need to do nothing else. Only if you wish to republish would you need permission. Blessings on your teaching.

    Dear Philip,
    I am reading all the articles and slides you posted here, but I have appreciated two of them that I have already finished reading:
    1) Repairing broken relationship: These slides are very important in our life. In most of the countries, societies and particularly families there is broken relation. For example; The domestic and sexual violence are the factors justifying the broken relationships among wife, husband and children. Their relationship in most of the communities, such as in my country, need to be repaired. But in belief, as you said it, God restore this relationship! This will be possible when we love each other as God loves us.
    2) Sex Therapy Assessment Questionnaire: This questionnaire is the wonderful contribution in solving the sexual problems. For example; there are some addicted people in sexual behaviors, there are prostitutes in many societies and some of people are doing sexuality in the ways God doesn’t want such the homosexuality (sexual orientation), masturbation, and other sexual behaviors. Really, these addicted people and other kind of addictions like drugs addicted need the counseling to promote their mental well being. This is because such of these addictions lead to sexual dysfunctions and have some other biopsychosociodynamic impacts on their health.
    NB.: If you have some videos of these articles and PPT (such as sexuality therapy, Being anxious for nothing, and repairing broken relationship you may share them with us.

    I thank you so much and wish you the blessings!

    Hello, I am not sure how to contact you, so hopefully this will do. I am looking for a copy of your article “Conversations with Biblical Counseling” published in the “Journal of Counseling and Discipleship” 1:3 in 2008. If you know where I could find a copy of this article, I would really appreciate it.
