I’m so grateful for the tools you gave me to help survive the darkest hour of my life! Meeting you was one of the best decisions I could have made and I’m so grateful for your time and compassion. You really taught me how to not be so hard on myself and to be proactive in changing my thinking patterns. Your humble demeanor and your fatherly heart really ministered to me. I know who to call if I go through a season like that again.
J.D. Murphy saw my son for several months 2 years ago and counseled my family along with him. My son was severely drug addicted and I honestly felt there was no help for him whatsoever, but his father and I refused to give up on him. J.D. was absolutely wonderful and, as of today, my son is 2 years clean and sober and doing so well and finally living life.
I feel that J.D. helped in saving his life and have thank him on several occasions for what he has done for my family! I would recommend J.D. to any family that is having problems. He is wonderful! I thank God that he took our hands and helped us through a very difficult time in our lives, and I will always be thankful to him for this!
The Christian Counseling services of J.D. Murphy were of great help and support to me personally and to our marriage in a time of crisis and need. Mr. Murphy is extremely gifted with his insight and skills to help guide someone through difficult times.
Through his tremendous listening skills, with compassion and understanding, J.D. Murphy has helped me to hear myself – lies that I have believed as truth that were holding me back in relationships and my career. I am now taking responsibility for and control of my life back from others while, at the same time, realizing it is not my place to rescue others from their own actions and responsibilities. I highly recommend his services.
Initially I was skeptical to seek professional help. Having just gone through a painful divorce, I had lost my sense of self and hit a real low point in my life. I lost interest in day to day activities to the point that some days I didn’t even want to get out of bed. As a mother I had to take charge of my life and so I began sessions with J.D. Murphy. As time went on I noticed I was waking in better moods and having a better outlook on things in general. Mr. Murphy brought many things to light throughout our sessions, and ways to deal with what I was going through. I truly believe therapy made a difference in my life. Mr. Murphy sets a high standard for providing a professional, comfortable environment. I would recommend his services to anyone who’s going through a hard time and seeking answers!
JD: I just read this and thought of you. This doctor had been through a personal tragedy and turned away from God. He had gone to see a counselor and was telling a friend some of what he had gone through.
Here is the excerpt from the book: “I know, as a Christian, you are going to tell me I should have gone to God,” he continued. “But I couldn’t.” “I heard an interesting quote,” she said. “I don’t know where it came from, but it says, sometimes we need Jesus with skin on. Maybe you needed to have someone real minister to you, to show you the way to God.” “That’s a good way to put it”, he said.
JD, I immediately thought of you. Jesus with skin on. You help minister to those of us who can’t spiritually see clearly because of all the emotional things going on. I want to take this opportunity to say thank you for your help. God bless you, your family, and your ministry.
I am grateful God led us to you at the beginning of our journey. God used you in a powerful way to restore our marriage. Also, you helped me realize my own brokenness and areas I needed to grow in. Thank you for your counseling. Thank you for your compassion and grace. We will never forget you. In fact, we are sending someone your way for counseling.
