Dr. Jim Jackson is the Senior Pastor of United Chapelwood Church in Houston. He uses a variety of radio and internet methods to reach out to people. The blog that contains the daily emails is called “Jim’s Daily Awakenings.” It’s from a preacher but not too preachy. I prefer receiving the emails versus going to the blog because you don’t have to think about it.
I was going to list some of my favorite of the emails, but I think I like most of them. The Random Thoughts series is particularly good.
The emails are uplifting and thoughtful, but not enough for a lot of folks. If you are visiting here, you might have a criminal defense, family law or other legal issue and may be experiencing the worst time in your life. Lawyers, even if they are particularly empathetic, aren’t very equiped to help when people’s depression is serious.
Know that there is help out there. There are resources that can help with mental health issues and/or substance abuse issues. They can help you rebuild your life. I will also suggest from my own experience that religious faith can be helpful in both good times and bad.
