The Five Environments that Provide Clarity for Life
The Source of our strength is God and our ability to commune with him to fortify us for the mission to which we have been called. Often we learn to cultivate strength based on the environments in which we have lived and the people we have known. Reflecting on the influence exerted by the various environments to which we are exposed throughout life led to the development of the model of the Five Environments. An understanding of these Five Environments reveals the source of our strength. Those who are raised in an Enriched Environment learn to turn to God as the Source of their strength, rather than depending on their own limited resources. This article describes the Enriched Environment, as well as the four additional Environments, in terms of nurturing, discipline, and fullness of life.
