Welcome

Merciful Ministries, Inc. (MMI) is a pastoral biblical counseling ministry with 501(c) 3 non-profit status, for women of all ages, struggling to make sense of their lives. When women are wrestling with emotional problems that come from an imperfect body of any type or challenging personal and interpersonal relationships with others, MMI offers creative and interactive help to find biblical answers with the compassion of Jesus Christ to get to the root of those problems.

We want to be a resource for the local churches in the area. Our desire is to undergird current counseling programs, encouraging ways to implement spiritual growth and community development. We also aim to help build, develop and strengthen local churches who desire to cultivate quality counseling ministries.

As a non-profit 501(c) 3, we are a “donation only” ministry and rely on both donations of each counselee as well as gifts and support from the local churches and the community at large.

MMI’s theme and goal is to, “Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of compassion and the God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our troubles, so that we can comfort those in any trouble with the comfort we ourselves have received from God.” 2 Corinthians 1:3-4

What Our Counselees Have To Say

“Merciful Ministries was an unexpected blessing! A friend referred me to Lizabeth and her counseling ministry. Having never attended counseling previously, I did not know what to expect, but felt compelled to try it. I am incredibly grateful for the biblical-based guidance and care. Merciful Ministries is challenging me to deepen my devotion to and relationship with Jesus, while also equipping me to handle challenges and obstacles in healthier, more God-honoring ways.”

“I am finding that as I meet regularly with Lizabeth, the cycling, the natural highs and low that come with mental health issues, have begun to improve, by refocusing my mind on God’s word and God’s will for my life. Lizabeth helps me combine the theory I already know with her knowledge of God’s word and his grace to a new level of applying truth to my life, helping me face my past and to deal with my life in reality in new and God honoring ways. Lizabeth models what real honest relationships are supposed to look like.”

“Without Lizabeth’s work through MMI, I don’t believe I would still be alive today. Having a history of depression and after a painful divorce and losing custody of my children, I felt like my life was over. I had no purpose or value. Planning suicide, the unforgivable sin, by starving myself, my family had me hospitalized. Afterwards, when unable to work due to a disabling disease, and seeing psychiatrists, psychologists, secular counselors, support groups, inpatient treatments and, after many antidepressants nothing touched my problems, I resorted to isolating myself again except when with my children. Lizabeth has been counseling me for over a year now for depression, anxiety, and panic attacks as well. I was raised as a Christian, but I had lost my way in life. She has been helping me understand how my anger at God, myself and others has deeply affected me, how I had made my mother and my children the idols in my life, the things I lived for instead of my personal relationship with Christ. Learning how to pray, how to receive forgiveness from God for myself and to forgive others, as well as learning to make God the person I live for and find my identity in, has changed my life. I am still a work in progress and meet with Lizabeth weekly. Although I still have my dark days, I have a renewed faith, knowing God is with me always and I now see my purpose clearer and the important job of letting my children and others see God’s work in me.”
