Emotions are the gateway to the heart. When we use words that communicate emotion in our home, the environment changes. In this episode, Josh and Christi talk about why it's important to understand the difference between emotions and feelings, especially for the intimacy in our marriage and how we connect with and guide our kids.

Josh and Christi talk about:

* The difference between emotions and feelings.* Our six core emotions and how to discern what they mean for us in our day-to-day lives.* How naming our feelings helps us label our emotions.* The role of emotions in "guarding your heart."* How congruence can help us "be at home" with ourselves again.* How to use emotional awareness to become a more connected spouse and parent.
