The healthiest marriages are between two healthy people. This week we’re unpacking why it’s so hard to be spiritually healthy without emotional health.

Episode highlights include: 

  • The connection between emotional and spiritual health 
  • The unintended relational effects of unprocessed emotions
  • Tips to grow in emotionally and spiritually health
