    The Emotionally Healthy Woman

    Monday, November 30, 2015

    Do you ever feel unhealthy emotionally? I would dare say we have all felt that at some point in our life or maybe you are feeling that way right now. I want to recommend a book I recently read that I believe every Christian woman should read, especially pastors’ wives. The title is The Emotionally Healthy Woman by Geri Scazzero. Geri is a pastor’s wife and shares her struggles in this book that I believe will bless you as you read.

    Here is the summary from the back of her book:

    Stop pretending everything is fine and change your life. Geri Scazzero knew there was something desperately wrong with her life. She felt like a single parent raising her four young daughters alone. She finally told her husband, “I quit,” and left the thriving church he pastored, beginning a journey that transformed her and her marriage for the better.

    In The Emotionally Healthy Woman, Geri provides you a way out of an inauthentic, superficial spirituality to genuine freedom in Christ. This book is for every woman who thinks, “I can’t keep pretending everything is fine!”

    The journey to emotional health begins by quitting. Geri quit being afraid of what others think. She quit lying. She quit denying her anger and sadness. She quit living someone else’s life. When you quit those things that are damaging to your soul or the souls of others, you are freed up to choose other ways of being and relating that are rooted in love and lead to life.

    When you quit for the right reasons, at the right time, and in the right way, you’re on the path not only to emotional health, but also to the true purpose of your life.

     I would encourage you to order this book today and learn how to become emotionally healthy. I believe it will change your life.
