Spiritual wellness is about nurturing your soul. If your soul is thirsty, none of the other stuff you do to fill yourself up will suffice. There will always be something missing if your spirit is hurting.
This is a tough subject to cover, because there are so many opinions, belief systems, religions, and worldview out there. What I can do is simply share my own experience and perspective. I’m always open to a conversation about this topic, so feel free to comment and ask questions, or shoot me a message.
Personally, my relationship with God is what sustains me every day as a mom. I can truly say that I would not be where I am in my life without my relationship with God through Jesus Christ. I grew up in a Christian home, but my faith truly became mine at age 13, after my father died in a sudden accident.
One of my passions now is to help other women get to know more about God and the Bible, as well as deepen their relationship with Him. I absolutely love watching people discover truth and begin applying it in their lives. At the same time, this process challenges and changes me to continue growing in my own faith, answer the tough questions, and live out what I believe more fully.
