As my faith and spirituality have developed over the last 5 years since I became a child of God, I have been led by the Holy Spirit in both my personal and professional life. Although I have fallen short of God's expectations for me, I continue to strive forward on the path that I discern through my daily prayer. God continues to open doors and close others. I too, persist in taking my own will back frequently, and am learning to humbly accept the frailty and shortcomings of human capacity; my sin nature. One door that I believe God has led me through is in the professional arena of addiction counseling. By his grace, I have been provided an opportunity to fulfill a portion of his Great Commission in a secular world. However, as I become more convicted of purpose in life, I am beginning to discern a bend in the straight path of secular addiction counseling. I have taken a turn, with His guidance, towards Professional Christian Counseling. The last 5 years, during the Certification process for addiction counseling has provided me an opportunity, to cross paths with many gifted professional Christian Counselors in the addiction counseling field. Each time, in the course of my conversations, whether at Conferences and Seminars, or in the daily practice of addiction counseling, I have felt a nudge, in that direction. I once again would like to humbly reiterate, my lack of knowledge in this new arena. There is so much to learn and I understand, from my initial undertakings in my internet explorations of the field, there are a number of paths to consider. Here are just a few of the websites that I have been dipping into: www.acadc.org www.aacc.net www.ncca.org www.ccef.org www.christiancounseling.com www.christianpsych.org
