To me from Melanie

From Melanie Jimenez from Understanding Schizophrenia blog

The following comment is from a dear woman who has followed my work for years now! She commented on an article I wrote about Christians suffering from depression. You can find that article here.

Some of the wording has been removed for space reasons. But I truly adore her words of encouragement.

Thank you Lori and as always, I wish you the best.

Dear Tamara,
Truly, there is just something about you, something about GOD in you that draws people in and I would even be as bold to say that you make people want to know more about God and who He is. Not “just” this distant omnipotent Being but as Someone relatable even in the real world everyday stuff! ….
You also spoke of Christian music. I love K Love radio! I don’t know a lot of Christian music but my therapist introduced me to the music of Natalie Grant. I absolutely LOVE her song “Held”–it just touches the wounded little child in me I guess. I also remember as a teen listening on occasion to Karen Lafferty and Sandi Patti and as I got older, to Amy Grant. 

     What an AWESOME thing that you and your mom can be prayer partners and that you can talk to her about spiritual things… She is obviously a Godly woman who has raised her children as God intended. That is great that you have that and a great idea to get a faith or prayer partner!
Thanks for helping me to want to get back to a stronger more solid faith…

CORONA VIRUS1050 Lincoln Way, Ste 1 - Pittsburgh PA

Trying to understand all of the chaos associated with the #coronavirus can feel very overwhelming.

I want to let ALL of my clients/patients who come to Anchored Child & Family Counseling or who see me for consultations know that I am taking the necessary steps to ensure that all of the families and individuals who come to the office are safe and healthy.

Please know that, in the event Anchored Child & Family Counseling is asked to alter its hours or close for the safety of all clients/patients, I will be offering tele-health (online, computer, or phone) services. Although I do not anticipate this happening any time soon, this is important to be prepared for.

I also want to assure you that if I receive any information regarding the corona virus that involves your insurance and/or your care I will let you know as soon as possible.

Although many of the new reports may appear to be or feel exaggerated, as you know keeping our eyes open and making smart decisions is essential.

Please let me know if you have questions!
