Where do psychology and faith overlap?
All of the elements that comprise who we are are valuable.
We want to be able to have healthy and comfortable distance from all the elements of our soul.
In partnership with God’s Spirit, we have the ability to lead our emotions in wise, clear, capable ways.
What we perceive as vulnerabilities are actually beautiful aspects of who we are.
Some little pain got lodged in my soul about my worth—that I wasn’t good enough.
God’s truth isn’t destructive. It is just clear.
We all have fears. They are normal and healthy, and they are part of what lead us to depend on Christ.
