My Journey to Emotionally Healthy Spirituality
On a beautiful Spring afternoon, I sat with a friend on my front porch, trying to swing the cares of my world away. I shared honestly with Cara that afternoon the loss, disappointment and struggle I faced on a daily basis. I longed to find peace and reconciliation with the God toward whom I held so much resentment. Cara pulled a worn and tattered paperback book from her bag, “Have you read this? What you’re saying sounds like this book.” It was Emotionally Healthy Spirituality by Peter Scazzero. She loaned me her copy and I started reading it that evening. Her copy was highlighted, underlined and filled with “Amens and That’s Me!” throughout. I felt like I was reading a personal diary that was not my business to read. I finished it and bought my own copy and read the book again and journaled through it. Then I read it again with a dear friend to help me process it. You could say, I am a fan of this book.
Recently, I read the book again. What I realized was that much of the distance I have covered emotionally and spiritually these past several years has been influenced by my time spent reading and conversations surrounding Emotionally Healthy Spirituality.
Cara and I would love to share with you what God has taught us through Emotionally Healthy Spirituality. Peter Scazzero has produced an eight – week video series with discussion opportunities to guide our time. There are daily homework exercises and readings so it’s not for the casual pupil but the serious student. The cost of the book set is $22. Prayerfully consider whether this might be the study you’re looking for to pursue growth toward emotional and spiritual maturity.

“Discipleship that deeply changes your relationship with God: you can’t be spiritually mature while remaining emotionally immature. This series helps to unpack core biblical principles to guide you into an experience of lasting, beneath-the-surface transformation in your relationship with Christ.”
