This weekend I escaped to the hills of Creston with my Forever Girlfriends team for some serious meetings. It takes a lot of blood, sweat, and tears to map out a year of ministry for the women of Father’s House, but we survived the brutal brainstorming sessions.
Scattered between stacks of planning sheets, scheduling notes, and long hours of prayer, we found time for self-care strategies—a very important ingredient of ministry. I learned a lot from these spiritual women, and I’m pleased to pass their gems of wisdom on to you.
Self-care strategies for girl friends
Lonnie likes quiet reading
Kris puts funny pictures of herself on Facebook
Diane enjoys taking walks
Carolyn captures odd photos of herself and her friends
Lee plays possum
Mary Jo unwinds in the kitchen
And me . . . well . . . I just enjoy being with girl friends!
So today I’m saying Hello Monday to all of my girl friends and encouraging you to take some time for self-care this week.
Question: So tell us, really, what do you and your friends do for self-care?
“Jesus likes it when we share.” -Adelaide, age 3: Pass this along to everybody and their brother. OK, maybe not everybody’s brother, but you know . . . all of your friends would be nice.
