In 1992, I graduated from The Institute of Christian Counseling. It was a two-year fully accredited college program that integrated the Word of God with counseling principles. This was sponsored by Capital Christian Center, Sacramento, CA fully accredited Bible College. At that time, I had been teaching from God’s Word for over 20 years. This counseling program turned my ministry and life ‘up side down in a miraculous way that enabled me to share God’s healing truth with hurting hearts. The more I know – the more I realize I don’t know. That is why I’m constantly seeking God’s wisdom.
It was amazing to learn how to use the Word of God to bring healing to hurting hearts. When you know the truth, the truth shall make you free. People can have a wonderful salvation experience but can be deeply emotionally wounded. At salvation, God removes our sins through the power of His blood. But God does not remove life’s experiences, feelings or emotions. Please do not say, “Just pray and give ‘it’ to Jesus!” Hurting people have prayed and prayed and yet they are looking at their circumstances of life through their distorted pain. We as a church must learn how to become healing helpers. On my website: www.carolclemans.org is a teaching DVD entitled, Jesus, the Healer of Our Brokenness. Every believer needs to view this live teaching from the heart of God and His Word!
The first ten years of my counseling was for Pastor Kenneth Haney, Christian Life Center in Stockton, CA. I taught six years at Christian Life College for Dr. Daniel Segraves – one of six subjects being Principles of Counseling. It’s been thrilling to be a conduit of God’s truth that has touched thousands of lives through counseling, teaching, and writing – God is the greatest counselor – His name shall be called Wonderful Counselor, the Mighty God, the Everlasting Father and the Prince of Peace – Isaiah 9:6.
For the past thirteen years through my writing a column in the Perspectives published by the Indiana Bible College, I started providing nationwide phone/Skype counseling. I received my first call requesting counseling because the person wanted a Spirit-filled counselor to help them. God has multiplied those requests from individuals and pastors for thirteen years nationwide. I ask for a minimal ministry offering to Life Enrichment Ministries, Inc. (www.carolclemans.org – read ‘about ministry’ page for bio and counseling procedure).
Sexual sins have invaded the church for years. One subject I counsel is helping people to recover from pornography addiction. This is a self-induced chemical addiction that damages the brain, heart, soul, and mind of the individual. I will soon have a DVD available on ‘Porn Addiction Recovery.’ I’ve been counseling this issue for 25 years. My website: www.carolclemans.org ‘about ministry’ page lists all of the issues that I counsel from God’s Word.
Acts 2 salvation came to my family in 1925 when my 15-year old father saw his mother baptized in a horse tank coming out of the water speaking in a heavenly language. My parents received this same experience as teens. I received this salvation experience in 1955 as a nine-year-old. My father became an Eschatology theologian that put the love of God in my heart for His Word.
It’s a thrilling spiritual experience to be able to counsel, teach and write God’s truth that touches hurting hearts. My ministry providing nationwide counseling by phone/Skype is unique. Every person that contacts me is hurting, some even hurting so deeply they don’t even believe that counseling will help. I ask them to try at least one session. I’ve never had a person stop with just one session. As they see my approach of looking at their pain through God’s view, it’s life changing! I give God all the glory.
I counsel pastors for their own personal issues. I also counsel people referred to me by pastors. I counsel people who contact me directly. All of my counseling is in strict confidentiality. One question I ask continually – “What is God’s truth about this situation?” As we work through the pain from God’s perspective, truth brings hope and healing to the hurting hearts. This affects relationships with God, self, and others.
There is much to learn about the foundation of a healthy family from God’s truth. A healthy family talks sharing their feelings and build trust. An unhealthy family does not talk, share feelings or build trust. When one out of three women and one out of four men are sexual abuse victims, this fact helps one to understand how we can have so many saved hurting people in the church. Saved people can come from all types of abusive family experiences, divorces, etc. Some of their stories are horrid. I help them change the negative destructive toxic thoughts about themselves through looking at what is God’s interpretation of their lives.
There are over 355 articles posted on my website explaining God’s truth about life’s experiences. If you have been silently hurting for years, do not hesitate to call me for counseling. Try one session. When you know (a process of attainment) God’s truth, His truth shall make you free. If you have had this emotional pain for 10, 20, 30, years – allow yourself a little time to be healed. The devil wants you to remain in your distorted hurting pain because it robs the joy of the Lord.
I have teaching CD’s and DVD’s that will help you understand what I do with God’s truth in counseling on my website: www.carolclemans.org. God wants everyone to be saved and emotionally healed. Isaiah 61 forth tells the coming of Jesus to bring salvation. It also tells He came to heal the broken-hearted and set the captives free – I say free of his/her ‘stinkin toxic thinkin.’ We can be transformed by renewing our minds with God’s truth (Roms. 12: 1 & 2).
I love teaching for churches and conferences God’s truth. I teach all the subjects I counsel for healing and growth. When I’m speaking at a church or conference, I also provide counseling to anyone who requests help. This ministry is my joy and my heartbeat for the Lord. At 71 years old with 50 years of teaching God’s Word and 25 years counseling and seeing God’s miracles of inner healing, it gives me great joy. I will be involved in this ministry until the Lord’s return or He takes me to glory!

Pastor Daniel Batchelor, Dupo, IL is on my board of directors. We live in Madison, MS. Supt. David Tipton, Jr. refers my counseling and teaching to pastors in this state.
Pastors call me asking for help with the hurting in their churches. I do co-counseling with pastors with their people through www.Skype.com. I also teach seminars through Skype for churches nationwide – and to English-speaking countries. I’m so thankful God has allowed me to be a conduit for His truth for healing the hurting heart and helping people in their relationship with God and others. TO GOD BE THE GLORY!
