 Show Notes:

God is emotional – but we don’t always think of Him that way. 
 To begin this first part of a three-part miniseries, Heidi Goehmann explains how hard it can be to discuss and analyze our emotions from a Christian perspective. Heidi also looks into how God leans into us and our emotions, and how we are filled with His grace through all different emotions. 

In these episodes Heidi will talk listeners through what God says about our emotions. Keep up with Heidi’s episodes to find out all of these lessons and more found in Heidi’s upcoming book.
