You feel better when you talk about it

Welcome to Issues of Life Inc.

We are a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization with a mission to serve individuals and families in our community. We desire all people to be well mentally, physically, and spiritually. To accomplish our mission, we depend on the help and generosity of individuals and businesses. Your donations will be contributed to providing free therapy sessions to those who can’t afford the co-pay due to not meeting the deductible on their insurance. Donations in any amount are most appreciated and make a huge difference! Thank you in advance for your donation!

“Keep thy heart with all diligence, for out of it are the issues of life.”

Proverbs 4:23 (KJV)
What does it mean to keep your heart with all diligence?

It means to pay close attention to your thoughts and feelings that store up in your heart because what you think and feel will dictate what you see, say, and do. Guarding your heart does not mean building a wall and internalizing your feelings. It is not good to ignore talking about the things that bother or hinder you from living your best life possible. Talk about it. Deal with it. Face your fears. Your life matters. Your feelings matter. You matter.

You are stronger than you think

“There is no greater agony than bearing an untold story inside of you.”
