Doing Life Together


Doing Life Together: Beginning July 1, 2011

posted by Linda Mintle

Grab a cup of coffee. Get comfortable and let’s do life together. We will tackle everyday issues that lead to good mental health. I bring years of clinical training and experience to our virtual table and will serve up tips for healthy living. Through real conversation, our faith can challenge us to live authentic lives that honor God. Living for God isn’t always easy in today’s culture. I’ll be the first to admit, I fall often short! Life is a little crazy, but there is grace and transforming power. And the journey is always better when shared with others. So join the conversation and we’ll do life together!
