Feeling Affirmed

Affirmations can be a helpful tool in our self-care kit. While not a way to ignore the negative happening around or within us, they can help reorient ourselves back on track as we process emotions and feelings.

In this episode, Andrew unpacks a little bit deeper into how these affirmations can be beneficial, as we develop this embedded practice of self-care. He talks about some affirmations he has heard about from others or used himself. And he talks about ways we can develop affirmations that can help us as we live out our faith and vocation.

Building a theology of self-care together

I began running when I was a kid. My mom says I went straight from crawling to running. However, I have been over a lot of hurdles to get to this point, and I would be nowhere without several communities to help me get here.
I am also a pastor in the United Methodist Church, and I have used my passion for creating loving and caring communities to help share God’s grace.
