Friends & Family

God, Jesus, and the Holy Spirit were the very first relationship. Even God exists in community. Coping with life is sometimes hard, but friends and family make it easier. You can give and receive support through the relationships in your life.


Now What?

Creating Your Wellness Vision

If you don’t have a clear idea of what your wellness vision is, think about what has been presented these last four weeks. Think of three words to describe your thoughts about your wellness. and three words to describe some actions you want to pursue. Use these words to help you write a Wellness Visions.


Goal Setting


  • Questions to Consider
  • Why do I want to improve?
    What are my strengths?
    What gets in my way?
    How do I overcome them?
  • No matter where you are in the different areas of your life, there is always room for improvement. It doesn’t have to be something huge. Our health wellness is in a constant state of change. Use goal-setting as a way to make that change a positive one.
