About Refresh My Soul
Refresh My Soul is a ministry of encouragement to the body of Christ. We (Tony, the technical head, and Angela, the heart) started it in 2005 as a blog and a place where Angela could have an online presence to advertise her availability for speaking at women’s events. After several years in this direction, we became just a blog that barely existed at certain times because of chronic illness, adoption, special needs issues, and various other struggles of life. During this time Angela began training in Biblical Counseling.
Angela has continually maintained Bible teaching roles through the years because if she didn’t share the truth with others she feels like she would shrivel up to nothing! There is no greater joy to her than encouraging others in their walks with the Lord. In 2017, we officially established Refresh My Soul Ministries as a non-profit organization. Today we offer biblical counseling, resources, articles, and various workshops to encourage the soul.
What is Biblical Counseling
Biblical counseling is a process of understanding an individual's struggles in light of biblical concepts. All problems lie at the core of our hearts. Our responses to life's pressures, hurts, and sin expose our hearts to us. When those issues arise, biblical counseling is helpful. We believe God's word is alive and active and therefore powerful enough to bring positive change to a person's life. We strive to equip the individual with the proper skills for them to walk the word out with the help of the Holy Spirit thereby creating lasting and permanent change. Biblical counseling is essentially intensive one on one discipleship of the Word.
Meet your counselor
Angela has been married to her high school sweetheart for a couple of decades and they have three children (two by birth and one by adoption). She has battled health issues most of her adult life. It is through life's struggles and sorrows that she has learned to truly depend on God who lovingly sustains us through all things and shows our faith for what it is through trial. Daily, there is usually a battle of some kind regarding health.
“Pain and heartache are unavoidable in this life time, and when it hits, it is easy to lose sight of God when you are surrounded by darkness. But Angela brought the word like a lamp and walked along side me in a way that reminded my soul that God is near and his word is a healing balm to our wounds. Forever changed and grateful.”
