In this episode of the 4-Freedom Podcast, I speak with hosts Jon Hollifield & James Safrit about my minibook, Help! I've Been Diagnosed with a Mental Disorder. We discuss why I wanted to write a resource on this particular topic, a bit of my personal story, why the topic of identity is critical to consider when being labeled with a disorder, how I got involved with biblical counseling, and much more. This interview originally aired on the 4-Freedom Ministries YouTube Channel on October 14, 2021.
"There's no man-made label that can influence God's view of us in Christ—no matter what that label is, it's not ultimately determinative of our identity or our destiny."
