Episode 196

Many of us feel too busy to spend time with God. Justin shares how he experienced a mental and emotional breakdown years ago due to the pace and demands of his life as a husband, father, and corporate lawyer. He struggled to recover from the breakdown until he began to incorporate spiritual disciplines as a routine part of his daily life. Justin shares the four daily and four weekly habits that will help you love God, love your neighbor, embrace healthy spiritual routines, and resist unhealthy spiritual practices. Justin’s simple strategy and relatable story will encourage you to slow down and live a purposeful life in an age of distraction.
