How we care for ourselves impacts our relationship with God. This includes what we eat, how physically active we are, how we share and steward our resources, how we care for the earth, and how we honor the Sabbath.
Nurturing your spiritual relationship with God can be done in many ways. For some of us, worship, prayer, and study of Scripture keep us grounded in our relationship. For others, it may be baking, music, art, retreats, walking in nature, journaling, or movement prayer that ground.
We are called to live well. And God calls us to share our gifts with others. It is part of our vocational identity as friends, daughters, sisters, aunts and mothers to empower God’s people to embrace health and wholeness. As nurturers and caregivers, we have the opportunity to shape a new generation, to equip them to live as whole people of God.
