Show Notes:24. Peter Scazzero — The Emotionally Healthy Writer

I first encountered Pete’s book, Emotionally Healthy Leadership, through a pastors group that meet’s quarterly to discuss assigned readings. Like myself, Pete’s book was a favorite for nearly everyone in the group.

In an age of strategic planning, pragmatic evaluations, and extreme productivity, the contemplative spirituality and emotional health Pete recommends is like a cool breeze blowing in from the open window. Pete reminds us all valuable lessons like, beware of doing for God before being with God.

In our conversation, we cover Pete’s own journey to emotional health and how his contemplative approach to spirituality has impacted his writing and his calling as a writer.

  • It is a good year for our apple trees and this girl who loves to eat them.
  • Grateful for the chance to be on set with the 700 club. The video will play throughout the day and should be online this afternoon.
  • Thirteen years ago Ashley and I got married in this chapel. Last night Charlotte had her first voice recital on the same stage. She was the youngest performer. She sang about how time with God casts fear away. Made this dad very very proud.
  • Next Friday, I'll be talking The 5 Masculine Instincts live on The 700 Club with Andrew Knox. Looking forward to it.
  • So it begins.
  • Fair Life. You haven’t completed summer in the Ozarks until you’ve been to the Ozark Empire Fair.
  • Great day sailing.
  • New strings, new neck adjustments, and same old mediocre talent… my kids are still just young enough to think I’m good and my 90’s country is cool.
  • We came, we ate, we lost. #rallyhat
