On this page, I have made
some audio and video recordings available for free download. Some
will just be Scripture readings, and others will include some teaching
or commentary that I use in my therapy with clients. With the audio
files, you can either listen to them on your computer, load them
onto your IPOD (right-click the 'MP3' icon), or use your computer
software to create a standard CD that you can play in your car stereo,
etc. (ASSURANCE: I assure you there's no adware or spyware
or any other kind of junk in these files. I wouldn't know how to
do that if I wanted to, which I don't.)
Please e-mail me and let me know if you've listened or downloaded one of these teachings. I would
love to hear from you.

The book of Philippians is an amazing testimony
to the Apostle Paul's ability to put his circumstances behind him

forgive myself. Further, I don't believe I deserve the forgiveness
and the love of God." If that's you, then please listen to
this audio showing you the heart of God, where His forgiveness comes
from, and what He expects you to do with it. Your life is not about
you. Listen to this and learn what that means, and how that idea
sets you free.
Sins Are Too Big" (Luke 7, Romans 7, Various, 49 minutes,

"I know that people tell me that God has
forgiven me for my sins, but my sins have been so big, so bad, and
so many, that I don't believe God will want to forgive me. I just

listen to this audio, and allow God to comfort you with His love.

of His reach. Listen to this audio and let Him set you free.
