Lay Counseling

In college my major was psychology.  I have always been fascinated by the human mind and thought that after my dance career I could go into Christian counseling.  Well, my dance career ended quite early and my drive to start a family pushed my counseling aspirations to the side.

When I saw Lay Counseling as one of my review options I thought it would be a good read for an inquiring mind.  Maybe reading this would help reignite my counseling spark.

I have to admit that this book was extremely hard to get through.  It reads like a textbook but the information this book contains is wonderful.  Any church leader or Christian counselor would benefit greatly from this resource.

It has everything from the need for a lay counseling ministry in our churches to all the details that goes along with building a lay counseling ministry and everything in between.  We as Christians are called to help one another and this book is a wonderful reminder of how to "bear one another's burdens."

If counseling doesn't interest you I would not recommend this book but if it does I would highly recommend it.  There is so much information it's almost overwhelming if you read it straight through but if you read it a little at a time and use it as a reference it is invaluable.
