Emotional Fitness Survey

happy-sadThis Sunday at Grace we will be discussing the King Pin of “emotional health” so I thought I would send you some advance homework. 🙂

Here is a simple emotional health survey compiled by Judith Belmont, M.S., L.P.C.  If, after completing the survey, you’re discouraged by your emotional fitness results, fear not! My interview with Carol Montgomery, MA, MFT this Sunday will help us increase our levels of emotional health and balance. If you’re not in the area this Sunday, you’ll be able to access the  message and interview through our podcast a little later in the week.
