Where soulcare meets healthcare
The truth about ourselves and the limitations of modern medicine.
What every Christian needs to know
about engaging with modern medicine to change the culture of death in America, one Christian family at a time.
Forms didn't work for Hattie's mom and they're not working today. Use this tool to lift a burden off of yourself and your family. Create the ultimate gift for family, friends, pastors and physicians. New edition coming from LifeWay in October 2021.
The Bible Study
The I’ll Have It God’s Way six-session Bible study is designed to be used with a small group. However, you can use it personally or engage your family as a group. It is especially appropriate for anyone over 65, any adult child of the elderly and anyone who is a family caregiver. You will discover it is a powerful communication tool to bring clarity to the way you want to engage healthcare and is best to do this while you're healthy! You will create the greatest gift you can ever give to your family, friends, physicians and clergy. Let knowledge and love cast out all fear.
Resources to use with this study
Book The book contains text, discussion questions, personal homework plus everything you need to create a clear and powerful no-fail Advance Directive. If you are one of the 25% of the American population that has an Advance Directive, here's the opportunity to confirm you have been specific enough in making your wishes known. You do not need an attorney, simply use the forms as directed.
Videos Each session starts with a video that contains information that is not in the written text. Some sessions have more than one video. These are all on one DVD for purchase and they are posted on this site free of charge. If a leader purchases the DVD for use with the group, anyone missing a session can come here to view what they missed or to review what they watched in the group session. Under "The Bible Study" tab above choose "Videos" where you'll find links to each lecture.
Music (optional) Music changes your brain chemistry. This is the reason I like to begin every study session with music! Suggestions for each session are provided and can be viewed free of charge. Under "The Bible Study" tab above choose "Videos" where you will find links to the suggested music to open each session.
Advance Directives, even those prepared by attorneys, are often never seen or are ignored by physicians.
