My Life Nurse Self-Care Guidance
Christian friend, are you searching for a better way to take care of yourself? 

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?

  • Perhaps you know you should take better care of yourself (but you aren’t quite sure how or where to start)
  • Maybe you are overwhelmed caring for family members 
  • Perhaps you have a calling to serve the Lord in some way, and you feel, no you crave a deeper, more intimate relationship with Christ.
  • It may even be that somehow you feel called to take better care of yourself. You’ve read “your body is a holy temple” or “present your body as a living sacrifice” in Scripture and it struck a deep, deep chord with 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.

A little more about me:

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:

  • Be well in mind and body and care for yourself at any stage of health (how to do the best self-care and find or navigate appropriate healthcare)
  • Be well spiritually (how to surrender to the Lord Jesus)
  • To make it all work together 

My Life Nurse offers a unique perspective.

MLN serves as a credible, actionable ‘how to start’ and ‘step-by-step’ self-care instruction website for physical and emotional wellness and provides:

  • Nursing instruction
  • Self-care guidance
  • Healthcare system-navigation
  • Insurance wayfinding
  • Cost-saving solutions 

And

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.

Why combine our spirituality and self-care 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.

Because for Christians, wellness is first about who we obey, not about what we do.

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. 

Scripture shows we can experience spiritual wellness whether we feel health or illness, healing or dying.

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

Oh, and one more ‘nurse’ thing.

Getting care at the right place the FIRST time is the key to saving time, frustration, and money wasted on unnecessary or duplicate services.

Your time and money are wasted if proper care isn't received the first time.
