As I write the series on anger, I’ll be indexing it here for your convenience.
The series is based on Psalm 37:8
Turn from your rage!
Do not lose your temper -
it only leads to harm.
It’s about the journey away from anger. The journey to finding good things in unexpected places. I’d love for you to join me.
In preparation for the series, I started a yelling journal a few weeks back.
It has been an incredibly useful tool for my family. I’ve even begun to share some of the lessons on yelling I’m learning in blog posts.
I would encourage you to consider starting something similar for your family. If you don’t struggle with yelling, there is some other way that you are expressing your anger that you can journal.
True story: I yelled at my son yesterday and he looked at me and told me to write it down in my journal.
