    Episode 118: Jeremy Sutton | Physical Therapy and Mental Health

    Episode 118: Jeremy Sutton | Physical Therapy and Mental Health

    In this episode, host Clint Davis interviews Jeremy Sutton, a physical therapist and Christian counselor. They discuss Jeremy's journey in the field of physical therapy, his approach to holistic care, and his unique practice of providing physical therapy in patients' homes. They also touch on the importance of treating patients as whole individuals and the value of serving and caring for others. The conversation highlights the need for a more integrated approach to healthcare and the benefits of personalized, one-on-one care. Authenticity and integration of one's beliefs and actions are key in building trust and connecting with others. The purpose of all individuals, regardless of their profession, is to be a light and model Christ in their daily lives. The fulfillment of helping others and witnessing their healing and growth is a powerful motivator. We are all part of the body of Christ and have a role to play in sharing the love of God with those around us. The stories of the prodigal son, the lost coin, and the lost sheep remind us of the irrational and unconditional love and grace of God.
