On this episode of Flourish-Meant, host Tina Yeager interviews June Hunt, founder of global biblical counseling ministry Hope for the Heart, to discuss how to overcome anxiety. June highlights the importance of trusting God and shares practical tips for managing anxiety attacks. They cover different types of anxiety disorders and share personal anecdotes of overcoming anxiety. Listeners are encouraged to check out "Hope from the Heart" for more resources.

June Hunt, M.A., is an author, singer, speaker, and founder of Hope For The Heart, a worldwide biblical counseling ministry. Her life work has yielded landmark contributions in the field of Christian counseling. Hope For The Heart, which she founded in 1986, offers biblical hope and practical help — through biblical counsel, coaching, and context for contemporary concerns — in more than 60 countries on 6 continents. Early family pain was the catalyst that shaped June’s compassionate heart. Later as a church youth director, and then becoming a college/career director, she became aware of the need for sound biblical counsel. This led June to a lifelong commitment to provide God’s Truth for Today’s Problems.

In this episode, we discuss the following key points:

Casting cares instead of reeling them back -

  • Insights into anxiety and how it can escalate out of control if not dealt with effectively
  • Highlight Jeremiah 29:11 as a verse that reassures trust in God's plan
  • Description of anxiety as the number one mental disorder and the excessive negative presumption of danger and over-exaggerating circumstances 
  • Discussion of different types of anxiety disorders and their effects on normal functioning 
  • Personal story of June's anxiety related to the fear of her father institutionalizing her mother and controlling her inheritance and life 
  •  Emphasis on the importance of understanding realistic thoughts to overcome worry and excessive anxiety.
  • Thought management to control worry and overcome anxiety
