He often speaks on recovery from losses, depression, and similar subjects at workshops, seminars, and retreats. He has authored five books, including Jonathan You Left too Soon, How to Help a Heartbroken Friend, two novels, and the best-seller If God is So Good, Why Do I Hurt So Bad?

Dr. Biebel and his wife, Ilona, co-founded Hope Central Ministries to fulfill the calling to bind up the brokenhearted (Isaiah 61:1-3). Their dream is to establish a guest house where those who hurt can find divinely-orchestrated healing, peace, hope, and a new sense of purpose and calling, even joy again.
