Do you ever feel guilty or selfish at the idea of spending time, money, or attention on something that would bring you peace, joy, or help you take better care of yourself?  Isn’t self-care selfish and soul care too focused on me-me-me? Is this concept even biblical?

Bonnie shares how self-care first originated as soul care from Jesus himself, as He invites us to prioritize rest.  Learn how to nurture your wellness as a faith practice with Jesus.  Meditate on God’s loving promise to help you practice peace. Refresh your mind with biblical truth and calming peace as Bonnie shows you how. Bonnie continues her series “Moving from Anxiety to Rest”.
