My mission at My Life Nurse (MLN) is to lighten your self-care journey so you can be physically and spiritually well.
As a nurse, my job is to ask people how they feel.
But today, I want to ask a different question.
Does this sound like you?
You want to feel better physically and spiritually.
Still, after caring for and serving everyone else, you struggle to find motivation in the day to properly care for yourself, let alone serve God the way you feel called.
And that makes you feel discouraged. You may even feel alone.
But you are not alone.
I not only ‘get’ you; I feel like I already know you. Yes, I feel those situations listed above too. And I also feel God’s calling to take better care of myself. And, like you, I struggle.
Hi, my name is Lisa Kimrey and I’m so thankful you are here! I am an RN blogger. I’m also a happy wife, mom, pet-mom, 25-year veteran registered nurse, business owner, daughter, sister, friend and a work-in-progress servant of Jesus.
I started this blog to share the wisdom and lessons I’ve learned from my 5-year journey of self-care study in Scripture.
My blog shows how to:
MLN serves as a credible, actionable ‘how to start’ and ‘step-by-step’ self-care instruction website for physical and emotional wellness and provides:
MLN serves as a faith-based website, with a blend of wisdom and encouragement from Scripture for spiritual wellness.
Both are included to provide all of the resources you need for wellness.
Because taking proper care of ourselves is hard!
And, even with preventive measures, we all can fall prey to illness or injury at some time or another. When we do, we seek medical experts for advice and treatment options.
But eventually, we are given self-care instructions.
Self-care changes can be frustrating, intimidating and flat out inconvenient at times. The potential to get stuck, misdirected or feel heavy with discouragement is huge. We may face painful emotions and sometimes this can even lead us to other problems.
The confusion of not knowing what to do may make us feel like we should just give up.
Or, we could bring Jesus into our everyday self-care minutiae.
The Bible tells us that when we surrender to the Lord with our bodies, we honor, praise and worship God. The way we take care of our bodies (our decisions and actions), our self-care, can be a form of worship when done to glorify God.
When we are spiritually well, we joyfully want to use our bodies for His glory instead of our pleasures and purposes.
That joy in our Lord is our strength, and can be a source of motivation for our physical or emotional wellness!
In fact, spiritual wellness can eclipse physical illness.
THAT is a better way to take care of ourselves!
And then, yes we can:
Serve Jesus to our fullest at any stage of health
Address our high blood pressure, high cholesterol, or high blood sugar (or any other health symptom)
Have the motivation to do proper self-care daily
Change the source of stress in our lives
Follow our health provider’s treatment plan
Getting care at the right place the FIRST time is the key to saving time, frustration, and money wasted on unnecessary or duplicate services.
