New York Times bestselling author and IF:Gathering founder Jennie Allen shares her personal journey of learning to embrace and process her emotions, rather than trying to suppress or fix them. Jennie explains the science behind the importance of sharing emotional experiences, especially traumatic ones, with loved ones in order to process them and prevent them from resurfacing later in life. She also talks about how her own upbringing shaped her views on emotions, and how she is now working to create a different emotional environment for her own children.

We miss so much in our relationship with God when we turn our emotions off.
