Welcome to Christian Concepts, a home for inquisitive people who want to change the world by learning and understanding their identity.
I’m Matt Pavlik. I write to help you apply God’s truth to your life. I also counsel individuals and couples using talk-therapy at my Christian counseling private practice, New Reflections Counseling, in Dayton, Ohio.
When you think Christian Concepts, think ideas and insights that help you understand yourself, God, and creation based on the foundational truths of the Bible. I publish books that help Christians reach their potential using Christian Concepts as the publishing imprint.
What You’ll Find Here
Here are my top core beliefs about identity:
- God knew who you were before you were conceived, therefore, you’re not a random occurring life-form. You’re an intentional work of art.
- You can’t be anything you want to be, but you can be more of exactly who God made you to be.
- You can have true freedom and fulfillment only when accept and grow in your God-given identity.
I also write about marriage. Marriage is more successful when husband and wife understand and appreciate who they are as individuals. Then they’ll be better equipped to become a team of two.
Comments and Questions
I value your comments and questions. I thrive on applying what I know to real life situations. You can post a comment or if you sign up for updates, you’ll have access to my direct email. Ask me a question and I will respond privately or choose to address it in a future post.
My Gift to You
Do you feel lost in this journey called life? God doesn’t intend for you to be tossed to and fro. Your identity is a major clue to living a fulfilling life. When you join me and other identity seekers by subscribing to my list, I’ll send you a copy of my Identity Manifesto, in addition to the weekly articles, news, and special offers on my books.
