Willie Redman, LSCSW
My life’s mission is to please God. It is my earnest prayer to follow God’s leading and direction for my life. This statement pertains to my personal life as well as my professional service. I received Jesus as my personal savior when I was 16 years old. I have grown in years since then and also in my knowledge and wisdom concerning spiritual matters. This life is like a vapor. Here one brief moment and gone the next. My eternal home is in heaven and during my time left on earth, it is my desire to be obedient and live for Jesus my Christ.
I have learned that Jesus is my best friend, my savior, my confidant, and my guide. God speaks to me in whispers, gives my heart peace, and leads me beside the still waters. I have experienced many valleys and dark times during my life. God has always been present and I know this will continue until I die.
My professional service and calling is to work with hurting children, families, and adults. I have a connection with abused and traumatized children. I know that children have a God given ability to sense when an adult really cares about them, as do adults. I am in the process of learning about our elder population. I respect the wisdom and life experiences we can gain from our older folks. I am discovering they need a purpose and a hope during this golden time in their lives. I am waiting on God to connect me with the people I need to help. In the meantime, I study His word and learn as much as possible about the ways I can help the hurting (regardless of age) to find hope, purpose and develop resiliency.
The past decade or so I have been living with the diagnosis of systemic lupus. It is a chronic disease and there is no cure. The lupus has taught me about living with a chronic illness. I do know that God will use me to help others suffering with debilitating illness and those who have had heart failure.
Grief and anxiety have been companions during my lifetime. I am very comfortable working with clients who may be facing the difficulties associated with anxiety disorders/grief.
Jesus is our great physician. Without a relationship with Him, we remain without hope. It is my continued prayer that God guide me and use me to do His will. "For with God, ALL things are possible.”
