What is counseling without the COUNSELOR?  Holy Spirit is the one who brings comfort and peace to every situation we may face. Proverbs 11:14 states, “Where there is no guidance the people fall, But in abundance of counselors there is victory.” My prayer is that the Holy Spirit moves through me to bring healing and comfort for each person I serve. I use the skills I’ve acquired paired with biblical truth to “bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim freedom for the captives and release from darkness for the prisoners”. (Isaiah 61:1)

General

I am married to an amazing man of God, Lane Bass, and we have three boys and two girls that I get to homeschool and disciple. I’ve been very supportive and involved in my husband’s ministry over the years including missions, youth, and music. I teach a homeschool class once a week and decorate cakes and cookies as a hobby.
