What is Emotionally Healthy Discipleship?
Most of who we are lies deep beneath the surface. God invites us to be our true and unique selves before Him — to know who we are. But to get there, we must do away with the false layers and unhealthy attachments in our lives. We need to look deeply into our own hearts and confront the often unpleasant and painful parts of ourselves.
Emotionally Healthy Discipleship is a framework that directly addresses the reality that emotional maturity and spiritual maturity are inseparable. It is not possible to be spiritually mature while remaining emotionally immature. And, if we are to live out of our authentic selves, made in the image of Christ, we must slow down to cultivate an intimate relationship with Jesus.
