Most women I know find themselves at some point needing rest!
I had such a good time talking to my friend Jenni Elwood at The Refuge Podcast about finding rest through biblical self-care.
-The story behind the scenes of Melanie’s life and her wakeup call for the need to take better care of herself.
-We move on to the reality of life: often when we say ‘yes’ to big things, more piles in that we don’t have control over.
-Diving into Scripture, we look at Jesus’ invitation to rest and how He modeled self-care.
-Facing the lies of the enemy with regards to rest is wisdom.
-It’s healthy to schedule rest (really!)
-Biblical self-care is taking care of our entire being: mind, heart, and soul.
-There is something about nature that refreshes us.
-We touched on our gratitude that mental health issues are receiving more compassion.
-Gratitude for good counselors comes up.
Thanks for listening, and I hope today you do something to take good care of yourself, writing friends. I promised you’ll be a better writer because of it!
