Women increasingly find themselves pulled in many directions, striving to balance the needs of others with the need to nurture themselves. This pull is often exhausting and, sometimes, can lead to resentment or burn-out. So how do we manage our work and family and faith and ministry lives if we aren’t able to take care of ourselves as we also take care of others?
Renewed helps women understand the need to put themselves on “the list.” Through practical ideas and relatable anecdotes, readers can better understand their strengths and their passions—and address some of the underlying struggles or hurts that make them want to keep busy or minister to others to the detriment of themselves. Renewed can help nurture those areas of women’s lives to use them better for work, family, and service. It gives readers permission to examine where they spend their energy and time, and learn to set limits and listen to “that inner voice.”
I am so excited to introduce you to Lucille Zimmerman, author, speaker, and counselor. Her new book, Renewed: Finding Your Inner Happy in an Overwhelmed World will be a blessing to you.
During the second half of the show, I’ll introduce you to my friend, Melody Warford. We sing in the choir together at CBC, and she has an amazing ministry, Stone Soup Media, where she helps missionaries, ministries and churches tell their story with engaging film and storytelling. Her personal story of overcoming the pain of a failed marriage, Hodgkins Disease and a major brain tumor testifies to God’s amazing faithfulness!
Melody and I will then head on down to El Jarro’s Mexican Restaurant to “continue the conversation off the air” for a no-host lunch…hope you can join us!
