 Our Description

Emotions such as anger or sadness or desire arise within us, often without our directly willing them. But we are still free to choose how we respond to them. How can we better understand our God-given emotions and manage them so that we gain the emotional equilibrium and healthy balance we need to take charge of our lives, grow closer to Christ, and share in the joy of his love?

In this insightful and easy-to-read book, Catholic therapist Art Bennett and his wife Laraine explain how our emotions affect us and how our thoughts, attitudes, and behavior can affect our emotions. In a conversational and non-technical way, the authors address these and other questions: What are the effects of temperament and our past experiences on our emotional health? Can we trust our feelings? When do our emotions become destructive? How do past emotional wounds affect our present-day emotional balance?




  • Outlines the Catholic understanding of emotions.




  • Uses real-life examples of people dealing with emotional issues.




  • Helps us see how managing our emotions can lead to healthier relationships with others as well as growth in virtue and a closer relationship with the Lord.




  • Includes questions for reflection and prayer at the end of each chapter.
