About the Book

“He said to him the third time, ‘Simon, son of Jonah, do you love Me?’ Peter was grieved because He said to him the third time, ‘Do you love Me?’ And he said to Him, ‘Lord, You know all things; You know that I love You.’ Jesus said to him, ‘Feed My sheep.’” (John 21:17, NKJV) Psychotherapy, indeed, all disciplines that follow the medical model, is about eradicating pathogens (sickness) and promoting healing (therapy). Spirituality and nutrition focus upon our wellbeing or wholeness. Christ instructs those who love Him to “feed My sheep.” Bishop T. D. Jakes instructs that we are to feed the things that feed us. In joining psychotherapy with spirituality we avoid dichotomous thinking (either/or) with systems thinking (both/and). Our spiritual essences (core beliefs) influence the strategic planning of the mind that is carried out by our physical essence. In this book, “What We Feed Grows: The Journey toward Wholeness,” dovetails these seemingly disparate world-views of theology/psychology or faith/science; along with wellbeing and healing. As spiritual exemplars or spiritual disciples, our tasks are simple to “Feed My sheep” with the spiritual sustenance (spiritual fruit) that facilitates spiritual wellbeing and good mental health.
