Biblical Beginnings

Hello beloved, and Happy New Year. Ever since we went through the miracle of birth series and discussed the lungs I’ve wanted to talk to you about trees. Trees are often mentioned in the Bible, whether as a symbol for the land they grow in, or in the literal garden of Eden where two very special trees were planted.

This was a helpful and edifying booklet.  It is a “minibook” that is part of the “Resources for Personal Change” series published by New Growth Press.  The author William Smith is an adjunct faculty in the Christian Counseling and Educational Foundation has written an excellent resource for those who are going through trials and asking the question of why God allows bad things to happen.  It is an excellent resource for Biblical and Pastoral Counselors to give the counselee and have them read and highlight/underline for study and meditation.  For my own use I read this title along with a church member I was discipling and counseling as…
