Show Notes

We’re called to love God with all our heart, soul, strength, and mind. Some of us gravitate toward the intellectual side and love God with our mind. Others go in the opposite direction toward feelings. But these should not be in opposition to each other. Rather, we’re whole persons called to love God with our whole being. Tom Schwanda helps us pursue this integrated approach to discipleship.
