Life and people can hurt us…deeply. Many suffer in silence fearing that if they open up about what wounded them, they will show a lack of faith somehow.
In Healing the Wounded Spirit, Earl and Carl talk openly, honestly, and realistically about the hurts and wounds we experience. They pull no punches as they talk about their own wounds they experienced in their lives with the haunting questions of “God, where are You?”
In this book, learn that it’s okay to grieve and learn how to do it well so healing can eventually take place. Start today. You’ll be glad you did.

“Lifetime best friends, Carl and Earl convey God’s deepest love and compassion for us as they discuss the realities of very deep pain that church leaders usually shy away from addressing from the pulpit.” Jodi Niemi-Brown, M.A., Certified Family Life Educator, Spring Arbor University, and Ph.D. Candidate
Earl received his M.A. in Counseling Psychology from Michigan Theological Seminary and serves as a psychologist at Advance Counseling Services, LLC in Traverse City, Michigan, pastors in Cadillac, Michigan, and directs a Christian singles ministry with his wife, Kelly, called L.I.F.E. 33. Earl serves as a fellow wounded healer.
Carl’s pursuit of a calling in missions and evangelistic drama lead into several nations before a back injury sidelined him for two decades. Now he has a heart for the suffering church worldwide, and those grieving who feel thwarted in their calling.
