(No reviews yet) Write a Review
Good Book

Many of us suppress our feelings because we’re worried they are ungodly. Others of us are so led by our emotions that we let them dominate everything, including our faith.

In these honest, personal and uplifting meditations on 24 selected psalms, Courtney Reissig looks at emotions we all experience, ranging from shame, anxiety, and anger through to gratitude, hope, and joy. For each, she shows how the psalms give us permission to acknowledge how we feel before God, and how they can help us to use those feelings productively and faithfully.

This inspiring book will give you a language to cry out to God in order to process your feelings, as well as help you to grow in your faith. It can be used devotionally.

I love the Psalms, and Courtney Reissig has made me cherish them even more. In Teach Me to Feel, she shows us how to honestly process our feelings with God, using psalms to express our deepest emotions. If you’ve ever felt misunderstood, lonely, or overwhelmed, and wondered how to biblically process your feelings, this book is for you. You’ll discover how to lament, find hope, and rejoice through all of life, drawing you closer to the God of all comfort. --Veneetha Rendall Risner, The Scars that Have Shaped Me

We know that God intends to change how we think and how we behave, but we don’t always expect that God intends to change how we feel. But, as Teach Me to Feel so beautifully shows, God has given us a whole book to guide us into feeling rightly. With profound insights tucked into short chapters, this book helps us as readers apply the words of the psalmists to our own souls—leading us into honesty with God, confidence in God, and joy with God. -Nancy Guthrie, Bible teacher and author of the Seeing Jesus in the Old Testament series
