Self-care. Sound good? Or do you feel guilty even thinking about it? Perhaps it’s okay for someone else, but you don’t have time to take care of yourself? Dr. Zoe Shaw joins Darlene Brock and Julie Bender to explain what self-care is (and isn’t) and how it is an essential part of your grit and grace life. Society tells women, “you can do it all, and you have to,” but at what cost? Often, Christian women wonder if self-care is biblical, feeling they must always put others first, especially if they have a husband and/or children. Is this true?
In her new book, A Year of Self-Care, Dr. Zoe gives you an easily read daily how-to, and she unpacks some of what you’ll read in this episode. You don’t want to miss this conversation. We’re giving you permission to take a little time for yourself, grab your coffee or a cup of tea and tune in. Then commit to taking better care of yourself, starting today.

“Self-care is a daily exercise. One that is free but priceless. It’s a continual reckoning with your soul where you make a declaration: I am worthy to be care for.” -Dr. Zoe Shaw
