Welcome to Issues of Life Ministry, a place of counsel which ministers to the whole person: spirit, soul, and body.

Mission:
Issues of Life Ministry involves teaching each client how to stay anchored in Jesus Christ and rely on the Word of God while embracing the process of counseling.

Key Scriptures:
“Keep thy heart with all diligence, for out of it are the issues of life.” Proverbs 4:23

“Blessed is the man that walks not in the counsel of the ungodly, nor stands in the way of sinners, nor sits in the seat of the scornful. But his delight is in the law of the Lord, and in His law does he meditate day and night. And he shall be like a tree planted by the rivers of water, that brings forth his fruit in his season; his leaf also shall not wither; and whatsoever he does shall prosper.” Psalms 1:1-3

“Where there is no counsel, the people fall: but in the multitude of counselors, there is safety.” Proverbs 11:14

About the Counselor

Tyra Rowell has expertise in counseling and ministering to personal issues that may have resulted from broken childhoods, dysfunctional relationships, life circumstances, and etc. Personal issues can also result from an internal factor such as a person’s temperament. Temperament, in simple terms, is the inborn (not genetic, i.e. brown hair, blue eyes, etc.) part of man that determines how he reacts to people, places and things. In short, it is how people interact with their environments and the world around them. Temperament pinpoints our perception of ourselves and the people who love us. It is also the determining factor in how well we handle the stresses and pressures of life. Tyra believes each person is created in God’s image and can only feel complete by having a relationship with God through Jesus Christ.

Temperament Counseling

Temperament, in simple terms, is the inborn (not genetic, i.e. brown hair, blue eyes, etc.) part of man that determines how he reacts to people, places and things. In short, it is how people interact with their environments and the world around them. Temperament pinpoints our perception of ourselves and the people who love us. It is also the determining factor in how well we handle the stresses and pressures of life.

Temperament can best be defined as Spiritual genetics or God’s imprint upon each one of us. Three are involved in the conception of a child: the mother, the father and the Creator.

An individual’s temperament is identified through the Arno Profile System (APS report) which was named after its founders, Drs. Richard and Phyllis Arno. The APS report assists Christian Counselors with identifying a persons’ spiritual genetics. This system gives the counselee 90% success!

Why Temperament Counseling Works?

Paul said in Romans, 7th chapter, and 15th verse, (NIV) “I do not understand what I do. For what I want to do I do not do, but what I hate I do. Have you ever wondered why you do the very thing you know not to do and do it anyway? This is one of the reasons why temperament counseling works. The main focus of the counselor is to target the source of the problem based on the APS report.

Another reason why Temperament Counseling works is the counselor provides the counselee with a session-by-session plan so he or she will know, in advance, what to expect at each session. Providing the counselee with a “plan of action” removes the fear of the unknown.

The Benefits of Temperament Counseling

  • To identify what causes relationship conflicts and how to resolve them
  • The secrets of human behavior and how God’s wonderful plan works when understood and applied
  • A very successful five-step method for counseling those who turn to them for help
  • The Arno Profile System identifies an individual’s inborn, God-given temperament rather than their behavior.

What is the cost for Temperament Counseling?

A consultation fee of $50 is paid upfront to provide an APS report for the counselor in order to help the counselee. This fee pays for the APS report and your first counseling session. During the consultation, the counselee will complete a questionnaire for the APS report. At the first counseling session, the counselor will provide a summary of the counselee’s temperament as well as a plan of action. If the counselee wants to continue with the plan of action, the fee is $25 for each session which lasts 35 minutes. The plan of action is based on biblical principles.
