Hello, and welcome to A Mere Breath! This blog is simply a space for me to write about faith, Scripture, theology, and counseling issues – particularly how Scripture address them. Here’s a little about me:
My name is Hannah Brooke King and I am based out of Kansas City, MO. I’m originally from Leesburg, GA and I left part of my heart in Chattanooga, TN. Studying biblical counseling brought me to KCMO so I could study residentially at Midwestern Baptist Theological Seminary, where I am finishing up my MA of Biblical Counseling. I hope to go on and earn my PhD in Biblical Counseling, so I guess you can say I’m pretty devoted to it!
I have been a long-time believer in Jesus Christ, having been blessed with growing up in a Christian home and Christian education my entire life. That isn’t to say it has always been easy, or that I have been sheltered drastically. Far from it, I have experience pain and suffering through trial that I would never wish on another. Yet, each trial – each moment of my life really – the Lord has so graciously drawn me closer to him and revealed more of himself to me. Each time I am left with more hope, more healing, more life. Without Christ my Savior, I would have been long gone by now.
I became a believer in biblical counseling when I was counseled biblically myself through sexual abuse, relationship issues, anxiety issues, and more. I’m not at a perfect place to say I no longer struggle anymore … I never will be on this side of eternity. Still, I’m hoping that the spiritual maturity I grew into (and am always growing in) by the work of the Holy Spirit in my life will be evident in my words – always pointing back to the Word!
I hope you are encouraged, challenged, and inspired to seek after the one, true God as you read my blogs. I never want them to shine glory onto myself, but to always be pointing to my Heavenly Father from start to finish.
– Hannah Brooke.
