Some people feel that ‘counseling’ is not of God. I cannot answer for any other counselor, but I want to clarify my being a Certified Pastoral Counselor and a Holy Ghost filled (62 yrs.) Bible teacher/speaker (over 50 yrs). I teach for churches/conferences nationwide and through Skype to other nations. I provide a Bible-based counseling nationwide by phone/Skype/Facetime/Facebook video messaging. Go to: www.carolclemans.org ‘about ministry’ page for details teaching/counseling/life/education.
I am deeply thankful that my father (Elder Raymond G. Theobald) became a theologian/Eschatology teacher/anointed preacher/teacher that spent his life after the baptism of the Holy Ghost in 1925 at age 15 studying in-depth the Word of God. He sat at the feet of Bishop GT Haywood for several years (I was born when my family was members of Christ Temple, Indianapolis, IN).
My father/pastor taught me the Word of God growing up – hearing it and seeing it lived out daily in my parents’ lives. In my late 30’s, God had us in a place where I was teaching adults the Word of God. They loved my teaching, but many were deeply hurting although they were saved.
I started seeking God for wisdom. I attended some secular colleges. The secular psychology did not give me the answers. The Lord opened the door for me to take a two-year college course at the INSTITUTE OF CHRISTIAN COUNSELING. It was offered through a fully accredited college in California. It was taught by instructors with Master Degrees, licensed ministers and Spirit filled.
This 2-year college program greatly enhanced my ability to use the Word of God as a healing tool for saved but deeply hurting people. Every subject we studied was explained by using scripture to show the way to healing.
When I graduated from this institute, Bishop Kenneth Haney of Christian Life Center in Stockton, CA invited me on staff as a part/time counselor. I provided this ministry for CLC for ten years until Bishop Haney was voted as Supt. of the UPCI. Six of those years, I taught at Christian Life College six subjects under the direction of Dr. Daniel Segraves at Christian Life College, one subject being: Principles of Counseling.
I founded Life Enrichment Ministries, Inc. (501c3) about 2009 with a Board of Directors who ordained me as a minister because of my years of counseling and teaching the Word of God.
I’ve added to this education with several additional certifications, two being: Certified Christian Life Coach and Certified as a Sexual Addiction Recovery Facilitator. Read details of my life, education, ministry, family on the ‘about ministry’ page on my website: www.carolclemans.org. When you read over 385 articles on my website and watch my teaching videos on Carol Clemans YouTube channel, you will know that my teaching/counseling is all based on the Word of God.
Many counselors who received their education from a secular foundation have shared with me that they struggle with integrating scripture with counseling issues. My education was based on God’s Word as the foundation for counseling.
It would be foolish to trash all doctors because of one dysfunctional doctor. The same is true with comparing pastors, preachers, teachers, evangelists, and counselors. Be wise and do the vetting of an individual before throwing out in the ‘trash’ all people in certain fields because of one ‘bad apple.’ God’s Word shares the importance of seeking wise counseling – do the research in the Bible.
My articles (390+) and my teaching videos prove that I deal with hurting painful issues with believers based on God’s truth. I’m 71 years young. I will be teaching, writing, and counseling until the Lord comes for His Bride or takes me home to Him! It is the heartbeat of my life.
God has performed miracles in thousands of people’s lives for 25 years through my willingness to continual equip myself as a conduit of God’s truth. Emotional healing takes place by being ‘transformed by renewing our minds’ with God’s Word -Romans 12: 1 & 2.
God is the Wonderful Counselor. God uses people to share His truth for salvation, physical and emotional healing, and teaching His Word for spiritual, emotional and relational growth – Ephesians 4:15. I will continually study God’s Word and other writings that are based on the Word of God to be able to rightly divide the Word of truth.
All of us will give an account to God for His calling on our lives and how we do the ministry that He has given to us. Ministry leaders will have a greater accountability to God how we led and if we did it with an authentic heart, soul, and mind for His glory!
I give honor to my retired ordained minister husband, Rev. Harold Clemans, who financially supported my counseling education. He is my greatest spiritual supporter and encourager of the ministry God gave to me of teaching/counseling/writing to help others grow in God spiritually, emotionally and relationally. Many minister-husbands could be intimidated. It takes a wise man of God to be supportive of his wife’s ministry.
