Heather Eskridge received her certification in Biblical Counseling through the International Association of Biblical Counselors www.iabc.net in 2014, and shortly after heeded the Lord’s call to found Firm Foundation Biblical Counseling.
Using the Bible as her main source of counsel, Heather’s ministry focuses on equipping women with God’s truth which enables them to renew their minds. She teaches women to walk in the freedom that Christ has freely promised every surrendered believer.
Heather believes the Bible is the inspired word of God, as stated in II Timothy 3:16-17.
Her scripture based teaching includes overcoming shame, guilt, self-pity, pride, anger, heartache, betrayal, grief, bitterness, depression, fear and resentment.
Heather helps women to examine current belief systems uncovering hidden lies and deceptions of the heart.
She uses scripture to teach Truth, retraining the mind to operate in the Truth of God’s Word. Galatians 5:1 tells us “It was for freedom that Christ set us free: therefore keep standing firm and do not be subject again to a yoke of slavery”.
Heather specializes in counseling women who have been devastated by sexual sin, such as a husband’s affair, addiction to pornography or same sex attraction.
Heather also works as a counselor for Pure Life Ministries. There she counsels women in a six month program called Over Comers at Home (OCAH).
Pure Life Ministries exists to serve Christian individuals and organizations dealing with sexual sin throughout the world by providing biblically based counseling, teaching resources, and public speaking ministry with the goal of leading Christians to victory over sexual sin through a deeper life in God. www.purelifeministries.org .
A staff member at Pure Life Ministries, Heather graduated the OCAH program in 2005. The Godly comfort she received combined with the wisdom and truth that was imparted to her as a counselee in the OCAH program prompted her to become a Biblical Counselor. She was called to pass along the blessings of Truth imparted to her, to other women in similar circumstances.
Heather is married with three children. Although her marriage has been through the storm, it has endured and remains a beacon of light. She has learned to focus on Christ in the tempest, and now she provides a testimony of hope to hurting marriages rebuking hopelessness and shining light in dark places.
