What is Your Favorite Thing?

Day and night I’ll stick with God;

I’ve got a good thing going and I’m not letting go.

 I’m happy from the inside out,

and from the outside in, I’m firmly formed. – Psalm 16:18-19 MSG

When I first meet with a person in Christian leadership, I ask what their favorite thing is to do to relax and find joy. The place where their mind can rest and they can have peace and joy. During our most stressful and anxious times, it is important to stop and ground ourselves in areas that bring us joy.

Some examples I have heard:

  • Gardening.

  • Reading a book in peace.

  • Long baths.

  • Massages.

  • Crocheting while listening to an audiobook (my personal one).

Self-care means caring for yourself so you can remain in ministry for longer. Take time for yourself. Take time to enjoy the journey and give your body peace.

Practical tools are crucial to the Five Stone Mentoring Executive Mentoring curriculum. Our Biblical leadership tools have helped numerous leaders, and we would love the opportunity to show you how we can help you too. In May we are offering a 20% discount to all new clients!

Enjoy life and laugh a bit too,

Ashley Graves
