Requires a free account at Westminster Theological Seminary
Are you a single adult who sometimes feels isolated, vulnerable, and alone? Like everyone else you want to be known and understood; you don’t want to feel invisible. You want to be included and cared about. You don’t want to be lonely; you want to be connected to someone.
So how do you find the intimacy and relationship you desire? Jayne V. Clark, an experienced counselor, explains that the remedy for loneliness isn’t a change in your circumstances; it’s a relationship with a person—Jesus Christ. As your relationship with him deepens, you will be able to use the practical strategies outlined here to move toward people in genuine love.

About The Christian Counseling and Education Foundation
Since 1968, the Christian Counseling & Educational Foundation has set the pace in biblical counseling. We teach people how to explore the wisdom and depth of the Bible and apply its grace–centered message to the problems of daily living. Simply put our mission is to Restore Christ to Counseling and Counseling to the Church.
CCEF exists to Restore Christ to Counseling. We have a passion for personal change that is centered in the person of Christ. We have seen him bring significant change to individual lives. This passion is our heritage and heartbeat, and it leads us to constantly revisit the question, ‘How do the riches of the Gospel impact my life and my efforts to help others?’ Everything we do flows from our desire to equip Christians to live and love in a Christ–centered way.
CCEF also exists to Restore Counseling to the Church. We believe that the body of Christ is God’s primary context for change, the community God uses to transform his people. CCEF’s mission is to equip the church to be this kind of transforming community. We see ourselves as an extension of the local church, and we want to serve and promote its ministry.
We accomplish our mission through a unique synergy of counseling, courses, publications, and conferences. What ties these strands together is our passion to equip God’s people to experience Christ amid the challenges of daily life.
