6 months ago I began a much unanticipated journey towards emotionally healthy spirituality. I connected with Pete Scazzero who was in need of some digital communication support for his ministry Emotionally Healthy Spirituality in New York. I was excited about the opportunity to serve this ministry that was on the verge of great break through, but little did I know that the ministry would transform me far more that I would transform it.
While getting started I naturally began poking around the website and reading Pete's book, Emotionally Healthy Spirituality. Conviction began to set in as I began to notice that much of Pete's story was similar to mine. You see, I work hard for the sake of the gospel, but I too often use that as an excuse to justify my workaholism. My unhealthiness didn't stop in my work habits and life balance, it also was a part of my inter-personal relationships and my desire to keep peace rather than address issues. Honestly, my list of issues could go on, but the book is not about habits that we need to break as much as it is about practices we need to embrace.
Pete told me when I got started that this is more radical than I know, and now 6 months later I see it clearly. I'm honored to be a part of this transformational ministry and hope you will join me in this journey of Emotionally Healthy Spirituality!
