Emotional Health Small Group Resource

posted on July 12


What does the Bible have to say about feelings? Using the Pixar movie Inside Out as a guide, this resource explores what scripture has to say about the emotions personified in the film: joy, anger, sadness, fear and disgust.

Inside Out (2015) follows the emotions and experiences of 11-year-old Riley as her family goes through the transition of moving from Minnesota to San Francisco. The film provides a framework to have important discussions with families or other social connections about faith and emotions.

This discussion guide can be used as you see fit in your context. You do not have to follow the questions exactly or engage in every section. Rather, it is a tool available for you to encourage natural conversations about emotional health and faith. Together we can reflect and learn how to process emotions, so we can live a full life in community.
