Serving the Hurting

We had a great group of mental health professionals, pastors, lay leaders, and volunteers at this year’s Serving the Hurting Seminars! We learned tips for working more effectively with children with disabilities, how to be more intentional in our conversations by listening better, steps to take when your life feels out of whack and much more! We also had a drawing for prizes this year. Darla Stevens won two tickets to the 2017 HopeNet Banquet, featuring Amy Simpson. Mona Rhodes and Terri Gray each won a ticket to next year’s Serving the Hurting Seminars. Congrats!

Amy Simpson’s Mission

Amy Simpson is a coach, author and speaker who understands mental illness personally. She seeks to equip the church to understand, educate and care for those who struggle with this often silent illness. She has dubbed mental illness the “no casserole” sickness since we rarely come along those who are struggling with mental health the same way we come alongside those who struggle with physical health.
