Ah, the sun is coming out, the trees and flowers are sprouting, the smell of fresh cut grass is making its debut for the first time this year! The world is coming back to life after a long winter–so why shouldn’t we?!
This month in the True Girl Subscription, we're tackling the topic of wellness! Our team, plus over 1,000 moms and daughters, will be taking on a 30-day wellness challenge. There are lots of reasons and motives to get your body active and healthy, but we're here to tell you three Biblical reasons why we should stay active.
#1 Our bodies belong to God.
They aren't ours. Our bodies are a GIFT from God. Just like any other gift you may receive, you want to take care of it!
#2 The Holy Spirit lives within us.
Let’s check out 1 Corinthians 6:19-20. It says,
“Don’t you realize that your body is the temple of the Holy Spirit, who lives in you and was given to you by God? You do not belong to yourself, for God bought you with a high price. So you must honor God with your body.”
Our body is a dwelling place for the Holy Spirit, so we should do our best to be great “hosts” of our dweller!
#3 We want to live the best life possible.
By taking care of our body we are taking away things that may hinder us from doing the work God has called us to.
The world tries to make us think that the reason we should care for our bodies is because how our body looks is the most important thing...but we are here to say that is a lie. The Lord calls us to care for our body to bring glory to Him and Him alone!
So moms, are you ready to join our team’s wellness challenge? By setting goals for yourself to live a healthier, active life you're not only bringing glory to the Lord but setting an example to your kids of how to bring honor to our Creator through our bodies! So jot down some goals and jump to it!
Want to do this challenge with your daughter? Check out Staci’s coaching video where she will coach your girl up to learn how to care for her body!
This coaching video is part of the True Girl Subscription! The Wellness Box is filled with tools to help foster your daughters love for Jesus. The daily devos in this month's subscription box will help you and your girl dive into a conversation about both physical and spiritual wellness. (And she'll love the fun tools we're including to make it practical...like a CamelBak water bottle she can decorate with her own set of True Girl stickers, a jump rope that tracks her jumps, and a True Girl pedometer wrist watch.) Together, you’ll tackle questions such as “what does it look like to be physically well?” and “Why should it be important to us?” Your box will include everything you need to kick off a month-long wellness challenge!
