The Most Valuable Real Estate Is Your Mind
Throw Away the Squatters…Take back the keys
Speaker: Joanne Bourne
Through God's Word we must learn to capture the thoughts and patterns that have become such a part of us, so that we can remove sayings such as "that's just the way we are". I'll correlate how we should invest in our minds through obedience to God's Word. We'll explore:

- • Thinking we have developed along life's journey...the good, the bad and the ugly
Learning can be applied by the individual and to assist counselees in identifying and adjusting their thought patterns.
