06 Terese Talk: Cyndy Sherwood



How do you keep your eyes on Jesus when the whole world seems to be changing right before your eyes? On this episode of Terese Talk, Biblical Counselor and Healing Journey author Cyndy Sherwood shares some good advice for finding peace in the middle of life’s storms. Find out more about her ministry here.

Sometimes you just have to get away! My husband and I were able to take a road trip to Ohio and Kentucky. Along the way we enjoyed some outdoor sightseeing, some great meals, and a morning at the Creation Museum. *Complimentary media passes were provided for my visit, with no promise of on-air or online mention.* The Creation Museum is a 45-minute drive from the Ark Encounter. Children 10 and under are free at the Ark through 2020.

Tip from Terese: If you decide to visit, take your time. We walked slowly through the gardens outside before going into the museum. There is also a kids playground and petting zoo to take your time at. You really do have time to linger and read at each section. There was a great exhibit on the Bible’s history and authority. It was faith-affirming. The entire museum is beautifully crafted and well done.

You’ve likely heard this scripture: “Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ;” It’s from 2 Corinthians 10:5. But do you know how to do that? Jennie Allen is a Christian teacher and author who has written a book called “Get Out of Your Head.” It’s designed to help you identify your thoughts and line them up with God’s way of living. *Please note: since this publication of this podcast, Jennie’s event in Rochester, NY as been postponed due to the COVID-19 outbreak.*
