We are designed for healthy relationships with God, self, and others. Yet, in this world, we experience things like loss, abuse, and deficits in important relationships. These negative experiences can lead individuals to addiction or exploiting others. In this talk, Ben Bennett shares what he and Josh McDowell have found leads to a thriving life. Based on Biblical, psychological, and sociological research Ben explains the Seven Longings that will lead you or those you serve to a life of wholeness, purpose, and thriving. Whether you are desiring to help prevent addiction and abuse or help others heal, come get equipped as we explore the Seven Longings.
Leader's will benefit from this talk as 90% of issues of abuse and addiction would cease to exist were the Seven Longings implemented in parenting, leadership, government, and relationships. The fulfillment of the Seven Longings prevent abuse and addiction but also help those in need of healing and recovery. Because the Seven Longings lay at the root of a broad spectrum of issues including self-image, healthy relationships, self-care, thriving, purpose in life etc, they can be used in different contexts and fields of work.
