Good morning everyone! How are you today? I’m Dr. Teddy. I’m a partner with Kevin and Karen Osborne in You Can Hope Again Counselling. Our mission is based on Joel 2:25, where we’re told God will give back all the locusts have stolen. Life can steal away our hopes and dreams. God wants to give back far much more than the darkness has robbed from you. Why? Simply because He loves you!
We live in a world filled with more stress than at any other time in our history. We need to have times of laughter and play from all the hard work we do to relieve it. We need to have people we can trust to share our problems with.
I have a job for you. We would be deeply thankful if you would give out our business cards to those God leads you to share them with. For those on facebook you can send a PM with your mailing address, so we can send some to you. Others can send an email message to firstname.lastname@example.org with your mailing address. If God should lay it upon your heart to do so, we would be thankful to Him and you, for seeding this ministry until it becomes self-supporting.
Look for me in future blog pieces. I’ll be doing some you tube videos with children’s stories and thoughts about issues which affect our lives such as cyber bullying, suicide, anxiety, depression and abuse. Did you know that 60% of those who see counsellors have been abused? It’s okay to say you need help when life gets rough. If Jesus asked His followers to pray for Him as the hour was nearing for Him to be killed for all the wrong things we do, say or think, then you know it’s okay to talk to a counsellor or friend about all that is troubling you. We don’t have to have the answers. We simply need to be there.
Well, I have to go now. I have jet lag. Just got in from my flight from Tedunsky, Ohio on Bunny Airlines. Even though it was a short hop to finally get to Matheson, northern Ontario, Canada, they lost my luggage.
If you would like Dr. Teddy, Karen and Kevin to come to your church and help you with worship, please let us know. Our phone number is (705)316-0725. Karen and Kevin can preach and sing. Many of you know Kevin has written songs such as Still Waters, Morning Song, Healing River Flow Through Me and a children’s song called I Am Love. I can sing too! I’m a Bearatone. Hah! Hah! Hah!
We will go wherever God leads us.
Have a” beary” great Son-filled life!
Kevin and Karen Osborne are Christian pastoral counsellors and psychotherapists. We have started You Can Hope Again Counselling. Karen enjoys doing cross-stitch while I like writing and singing songs. Karen makes me laugh when she sings the kitty bed-time song saying, “It’s that time. It’s the bestest kitty time of the day!” Kevin enjoys teasing the kitties and making them do kitty dances with music. Their kitty, Catherine, loves it when kitty daddeh sings All Creatures Great and Small. Kevin likes doing impressions. He tells children’s stories using his hand puppet, Dr. Teddy.
