“I am very thankful for biblical counseling . I have been able to find inspiration in the moments where I needed someone to listen and guide me in becoming a better me. Biblical counseling has taught me to trust the Lord and calm my fears.”
Talia R.
“I was struggling finding stability and staying rooted in the truth of God and knowing who I am in Christ when a friend suggested I reach out to Pam Mason for biblical counseling. I was grateful for her gentle spirit and encouragement in knowing the Word and staying close to God in between the times we met. She offered flexibility with the arrangements of meetings and I felt supported and guided by her suggestions. The Holy Spirit spoke through her and the Lord worked through our time together each time we met. Prayer was foundational and so was the Word in our sessions. So thankful for Pam Mason and her obedience to follow God in what she’s been called to do.”
