What you are saying: Anne McDougall

I began my study in counseling with “Dynamics of Biblical Change”, a course taught by David Powlison. Little did I know that one 12-week course would set me on a journey that would change my life.

How did it change my life? I learned that I was as much a sinner and as deeply needy as anyone I would ever counsel. I learned that I was made in the image of God, as were all the people I might be privileged to help. And I learned there was a God of grace, sufficient to meet and cover that very neediness and sin.

My journey was a humbling one, filled with hope. Today, as a counselor, I know the task does not belong to me but to the Lord Himself. No other experience outside of my marriage and my family has had a greater impact on the way I think and live my life than the ministry of CCEF’s School of Biblical Counseling.
