When life is hard, 

how can the body of Christ help one another?

We seem to know intuitively how to reach out when someone faces physical pain or complications, but mental health seems more complex and messy. 


These sessions offer opportunities to 

  • define and understand what someone is dealing with – someone you love, a person within the body of Christ, or yourself.
  • discuss ways to help, how to set boundaries when helping, and what to avoid.
  • direct our focus to our loving Heavenly Father who welcomes every hurt encountered in this broken world.

Overcommitted and Overfunctioning

Mark 4:39-41 And he awoke and rebuked the wind and said to the sea, "Peace! Be still!" And the wind ceased, and there was a great calm. He said to them, "Why are you so afraid? Have you still no faith?" And they were filled with great fear and said to one another, "Who then is this, that even the wind and the sea obey him?"

  • Would I still be sick and tired of being sick and tired if  my family followed through?
  • Why am I always asked to take on things? Can't people see I have enough already?
  • Other people really aren't as carefree as they look, right? Life is hard.
  • Do you think God has simply called me to serve more than others do? I am needed in so many roles.
