Episode Notes

Initial thoughts about mental health:
  • Limit the labels
  • A feeling of sadness does not equal depression
  • No one is immune to struggling with depression
    • This doesn't mean you don't have faith
  • Take steps toward health, just like you would for your heart or eyes
  • Connection is key — it has the ability to heal and influence the brain toward healing

How do we set up our ministries to be ministries of connection (to be seen)?

  • Consistent training – this must be a first priority
  • Showing up – being present (the ministry of presence)
  • Make sure they are SEEN – and see beyond the behavior (how they feel)
  • Listen (tell me more)
  • Speak life
  • Build up grit in the next generation
    ***Every kid is one caring adult away from success
