July 28, 2021

Do you have a good practice of self-care? Or do think of this season in your life as a time to die to self so that you can serve others? What if I told you that you’re misunderstanding what it means to die to self? I am giving you permission to practice self-care, in fact I’m calling you to it. It is not selfish. It is essential so that you can love others well.

In this episode you will learn that Jesus didn't intend that we not take care of ourselves in order to serve others.

“Don't you think that it's better to pour out to others from a place of abundance instead of a place of lack?” - Katrina
