For those of you who missed #CCEF16, or this year’s Christian Counseling and Educational Foundation Conference, below are summaries of the main sessions. This year’s theme was “Emotions: Engaging the Expressions of the Heart.” I hope these concise summaries will be a blessing to you. You may purchase the conference audio directly from CCEF here.
