Followers of Jesus ought to be known for the way they love. During this five-part series, based on the book “Emotionally Healthy Spirituality” by Pete Scazzero, we’ll learn the relational skills that can help us grow as believers who are learning to love God and love people more fully.
In Part 1 of this series, we explain that to have emotionally healthy relationships, we need to stop mind-reading and clarify expectations by talking to people in-person instead of in our heads.
In Part 2 of our series, “Emotionally Healthy Relationships,” we explain that to have emotionally healthy relationships, you have to honestly examine your emotions and motivations so that you know yourself in order to love God and people better.
In Part 3 of this series, we learn to listen with empathy to the words and nonverbal communication of others.
In Part 4 of this series, we learn to eliminate “dirty fighting” tactics and fight cleanly for the sake of the relationship.
To have emotionally healthy relationships, understand and own your thoughts and feelings so you can live your true self.
