Learn to Manage Your Anxiety
1. Face the "What if..."
2. Remind yourself how little control you actually have over your life.
3. Cultivate gratitude.
What is the ultimate cure for anxiety? Jesus Himself, and He invites us to share our wearisome burdens with Him:
"Come unto Me, all who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you, and learn from me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls." (Matt. 11:28-29)

Take Care of Yourself!
If you tend to be a workaholic, make one of the items on your agenda to also stop working. Whatever delights you, whether it be reading a great fiction, soaking in a hot bubble bath, or taking a walk, schedule it on your calendar. Even if it's just 20-30 minutes a day, do it, if not for yourself, for your family, who you minister to, or even for the Lord. Be your best by getting your rest!
Where do you go to learn about being a minister's wife?
It is our desire here at Refresh to see that each woman has a positive experience in partnership with their husband in ministry.
Bloom wants to provide guidance, support, connection, and encouragement to wives new to ministry through a connection with a seasoned and trained minister's wife using a Connect group created specifically for you. We'll use books to guide us in our conversations about the challenges, issues, benefits, and rewards of being a minister's wife.
We believe when women are strengthen, our families and churches are strengthened, and the ministry of the gospel is strengthened.
Interested in joining a Bloom Group?
Let us hear from you. Next group starting April 2018.
