#026: Lack of Nurture and Emotional Struggles [Podcast]

In today’s episode, Melissa and I continue to speak on the subject of nurture and what happens when we lack it in our lives.

Specifically, we want to talk about how emotional struggles in life can come out of our lack of accessing nurture with God.

Included in our discussion is the subjects that come out of emotional struggles and lack of nurture:

  • Emotional spirals
  • Hopelessness
  • Intense discouragement
  • The constant temptation to quit.
  • Depression
  • Self-pity and self-loathing
  • Victim thinking

If you face any of these (and really who hasn’t) then tune in!

    I just finished listening to this podcast and literally cried my eyes out after it was over. I’m so glad you will be continuing on this topic. Receiving nurture makes you feel safe and stable. Learning to receive this from God will help so many. I know I need more of this in my life!

    • So glad to hear of that impact it had on you! More to come! I believe this is a critical subject that needs to be taught. Way to receive!

    • Great question Jean! Definitely gonna address this and speak to this so people can walk freer through God’s nurture. Thanks so much for your heart to break through and grow! Love it!
