This week, we have the chance to hear Shauna Niequist talk about her book, Present over Perfect, with Oprah! I especially love this video because it serves as such a great reminder that three spokes of our OVERALL health: body, mind, and spirit – are intrinsically linked. We are our own version of a trinity, sisters! Just as God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit are three unique entities yet also one united source, we are too!
Our power pack scripture for the week speaks to this truth:
Now, we are NOT God, of course, or even mini-Gods. That’s not what I mean. But we ARE created in His image. And the truth of the matter for us as humans is that we are at our own personal “best” when all three spokes of our wheel are functioning and in balance together. When one piece of our “triune”, is out of whack, it does affect the other pieces. Each part needs nourishment and nurturing.
Next week, we’ll begin a 4-week study of the connection of our spirit and our mind, and how we can learn to lean in and on God to help in the fight with things like anxiety, fear, depression, attacks on self-esteem, etc. THIS week, we’ll watch this video from Shauna and Oprah to hear about the importance of self-care and its effect on our overall health. Our homework will focus on mindfulness and living in the present moment!
Let’s watch Shauna describe what happened to her when her own life got out of balance and how she got back to a well-balanced place. Here’s the link! Enjoy!
See you next week, sweet sisters! Be good to yourself this week – body, mind, and spirit!
Peace, love, and JOY!
