Hi, I’m Melissa.
I am a Christian mental health therapist. I’ve worked in mental health for eight years. I work with children, families, and marriages to decrease distress and hopefully get to know God better. But my clients come from all walks of life and are on various paths in their pursuit to know Jesus.
My areas of experience include: anxiety and depression, attachment disorders, trauma, autism, military service men and their families, marital issues, parent education, self-esteem, and grief.
Because of my professional experience and my desire to glorify God, I wanted to share Christian living and wellness tips that are practical and easy to implement.
I am also a wife of an amazing husband and a mom of two pretty neat kids. My husband is a stay-at-home daddy to homeschool our kids. I know, right?! I truly feel like God has blessed me more than I can express!
Because I am also a wife and a mom, my tips are real life. I wouldn’t suggest anything I haven’t used with my own family or my clients.
I would be honored to be a resource that you can trust for tips on living a Christian life in this crazy world.
Please note, that while I am a mental health therapist, I cannot do therapy with you through this blog. The purpose of this site it to provide tips to improve your life and glorify God. If you are struggling with a significant mental health disorder, please seek support in your area.
About Humble Faith Family Wellness
My hope for this blog site is that it meets you exactly where you are! Everyone has their own unique pasts and issues to overcome.
You will find topics in the Christian living section for self-reflection to become closer connected to God. The Christian living section also has devotionals addressing specific topics to pray and contemplate on. There are also book reviews that I have completed so you can make a more educated decision as to whether the book will be beneficial for you.
The marriage section has topics with the focus on keeping your marriage strong and God centered. Marriage has dropped in importance in our current culture and that is problematic for us, our families and our society. Many of my marriage posts surround difficult topics that aren’t often discussed.
In the parenting section you will find parenting advice and tips to better parent from a godly perspective.
There is also a section devoted to adoption and attachment disorders. This topic is close to my heart. I have worked with hundreds of children and families who have struggled to understand how past trauma can and does affect the child.
Health and Wellness
Health and wellness focuses on nutrition and physical wellness from a Christian point of view. There you will read some personal journeys I have had in this area.
The link-ups page are all of the different places that I share my posts throughout the week. These sites allow bloggers the ability to connect and build friendship. It also allows readers the opportunity to see a compilation of posts from various writers.
The resources page has recommendations of products that I have read or used myself and in my family. As well as products that I have recommended to my clients over the years.
Humble Faith Family Wellness was created to provide Christian tips and tidbits for all areas of your life. And to ultimately glorify God. I pray that you find the content informative, thought provoking, and encouraging!
