Bible Study & Art Therapy?
by Theresa Arita
I want to combine my concern for hurting Christians, use peer counseling and art therapy (learned at college for a school counseling degree), and Bible studies to encourage believers to avail themselves of God's healing power.
Have any of you tried this before, for yourself or with others? Say, helping someone, or yourself, through a loss with specific Bible verses and then creating an art project around it (not for exhibit, but for therapy)?
I am an artist also recovering from PTSD, addiction, depression and anxiety with the Bible's amazing help and God's healing love. Jesus is leading the way, but I want to do more to help others.
Please let me know your thoughts, experiences, or resources for continuing such a ministry. Thank you!
