Testimonials

Dear Dr. Coomer and Kim,
I want to thank you for your counseling ministry.  I have been through the world’s counseling program as a child and an adult. Shortly after I was saved I remember going to the doctor thinking I was having an asthma attack to find out that it was a panic attack instead.  He offered to put me on medication. I remember turning to you and Kim and asking for help because I knew that the Bible had the answers to change my life.  Thank you for helping me turn my anger, my hurt, and my bitterness from my childhood and my abuse of marriage over to the Lord.  Thank you for showing me how to be a Spirit Controlled person and how to have a real relationship with God. It has changed my life totally. Today I have great peace and joy in my life. Thank you both for your time and how you helped me. I love you both!

Dr. Coomer,
Earlier this year our life was in a mess. We were pastoring and attempting to raise teenage children without much success. We were 8 years into pastoring and unable to help anybody like we wanted to or thought we should be able to with the Scripture. Our youngest teenage son was in a bad way, emotion led, and our oldest teenage son was the same in a different way. When the Lord brought you and Hope Biblical Counseling Center into our lives, we learned that we were also emotionally led and was the source of our children’s problems as well (aside from sin nature, of course). Both of us independently were ready to give up and probably leave the ministry and Christianity altogether. Praise the Lord, through your teaching us, Dr. Coomer,  what God says about having a real relationship with Him and learning to be Spirit controlled people, we have come a long way. We have been able to see others helped simply through the change in our lives, and the way we teach about God. Our children have been helped in wondrous ways. We are thankful to learn that we must submit to God every day, and how to do that, and we are very thankful for your ministry.

I have attended three Hope Biblical Counseling Conferences. The first one, I heard Dr. Coomer say a really life-changing statement: “The essence of the Christian life is to ASK GOD questions.” Wow! A totally different way to handle life issues that I never knew before. The conference helped me deal with my own issues and marital issues with my wife (my anger and pride – the biggest) Biblically. I learned that Biblical counselling is really intense Biblical discipleship – applying Biblical principles to your life, right at the moment of impact. The conferences helped me to first deal with my issues and then also to see other’s issues in the light of Scripture. The biggest thing to get first (that I already had started prior to the conference through Dr. Coomer’s writings) is to have a REAL relationship with God. Nothing else will change in your life without this, nothing. One key thing brought out was to let God take control of the situation and my dark side by turning it over to Him! I realized that anger has no place in my life as a Christian and how to make change in that lust area as well as other areas in my life. To be controlled by the Holy Spirit at the point of impact and not try to DO the Christian life in my own power but have God’s power in my life by being a submitted, Spirit-controlled person. I really thank the Lord for what I learned in the conferences and Dr. Coomer’s teaching. They were a real turning point in my life.

For many years I was in the dark cloud of a spiritually crippling depression.  I went to church and read my Bible regularly but God was never real to me and therefore I constantly doubted my salvation.  Then one night God brought Dr Coomer to my church and he preached a message about hope.  God spoke to my heart and I learned that I had lost hope, and that that was fueling my depression.  After a few months of debating within myself, I decided to sign up for Hope Biblical Counseling program.  God used my sessions with Dr Coomer to show me how to have a real relationship with Him.  Now I have the spiritual tools and understanding on how to have fellowship with God and walk in the Spirit.  God has since allowed me to use this in my family to encourage them and show them how to have a real relationship with God.  Praise God that I no longer have to live a wasted life full of misery and shame.

Dear Dr. Coomer and Kim,
Only yesterday the Lord gave me the opportunity to share about your ministry with a Christian Mum with small children. I shared with her how much I was learning. She was really keen to have some of your books. So I am going to post some to her. It was so wonderful and exciting to encourage someone who needed encouraging in their walk with the Lord and to have your spiritual tools to offer to someone. I am still and always will be so truly grateful to both of you. I thank the Lord for you both and for your love and dedication to the Lord. Praying for you both and for your counselees. Love you both very much.

Dear Dr. Coomer,
I was in desperate need of God’s help with my anger issues, and I thank you for your ministry. I have watched some of your videos on you tube and it has been mind blowing. I have too much emotional baggage that unknowingly are creeping into my motherhood journey and affecting my relationship with my husband. I know that I need God’s help to overcome my flesh and your approach is so very practical. It is the first time I have encountered this way of exposition of God’s Word. I just pray that I would truly apply these Biblical truths in my life and be totally transformed into Christ-like character that God wants me to have for my family. I am so excited as I have read your books. They have been a great encouragement to me. I am so thankful for your gift of encouragement through your weekly article. I got my first article and God’s timing is perfect as we celebrate our fourth wedding anniversary tomorrow. I will surely share this article with my husband. We have a long way to go, and I am very thankful to have found your ministry and your counsel.

Hi Pastor and Mrs. Coomer,
Just wanted to let you know that last Saturday I got engaged to the young man! I said yes and I do not regret it.  Thank you so much for helping me out with counseling earlier this year. It made a world of difference in my life, and in my financee’s life too now that he has a fiancee who is not emotion led and who has a relationship with God. Thanks so much!

Hello Dr. and Mrs. Coomer,
I want to thank you so much for the Biblical Counseling this past year. I was lost and now I am saved! My life is totally changed now! I was so afraid before and thinking life was not worth living. I got baptized and I now know how to have a real, intimate, personal, and passionate relationship with God and now I understand what it means to be a Spirit controlled person. My mom and dad also thank you! I love you guys!

Dr. and Mrs. Coomer,
As you know our marriage was in a total mess. I honestly did not think our marriage was savable. You showed us how to Biblically change our lives! We cannot thank you enough. Learning how to be a Spirit Controlled person and having a real relationship with God has changed our home, marriage, and children. Thank you so much for your help! We could not have done it without you! We love you both!

Hello Dr. Coomer and Kim,
When my husband left our marriage and was involved with another woman, I did not know what to do. I wanted to die. You helped me see that I needed to get emotionally free and to develop my relationship with God. Kim helped me so much during this time. You both were a stabilizing influence in my life. I cannot thank you enough for being there for me and helping me. God has helped me so much with my relationship with Him which I did not have before. I have been able to make so much change in my life through your help. Thank you, I will always be eternally grateful.
