"Teaching Spiritual Truths for Health and Wholeness"
From FaithandHealthConnection.org, an excellent website for wholistic health and wellness information from a Biblical perspective, compiled by Christian life coach and trainer Dale Fletcher:
Welcome to Faith and Health Connection
There is a direct relationship or link between faith or spirituality and health. God made us with a spirit, soul and body and they work together in a marvelous way. This ministry was founded to teach people an integrated spirit, mind and body approach to wellness and living a healthy life, all based on Christian principles. I hope you’ll find resources that will help you grow deeper in your faith and to live a healthier life. Enjoy your time exploring here. Please contact me if I can help you in any way.
For Health and Fitness Professionals
Roll up your sleeves and make an even bigger difference in the lives of the patients and clients you serve. Incorporate a spiritual component into your programming and patient care. Use the Spiritual Fitness Assessment to open dialogue with your clients on matters of spirituality and health. Join the online spirituality and health community. Most of all, spread the love of God by serving others and helping to make them whole.
For Pastors and Ministry Leaders
First and foremost, take care of your own health. Learn more about the spirituality and health connection. Whether your church is in the Charlotte, N.C. area or elsewhere, let me know if I can minister to your congregation by leading a workshop or church retreat. See my beliefs and mission statement.
Better understand how the spirit, mind and body work together and learn how to integrate these three areas and your spirituality into your day-to-day life so you can enjoy better health. As you learn more about this connection between faith, spirituality and health, you’ll be able to live a life that better integrates these components. With the improved level of fitness, health and wholeness you’ll be able to live a more full life and perhaps be better able to live out the purpose God has for you. __________ “…Spend your time and energy in training yourself for spiritual fitness. Physical exercise has some value, but spiritual exercise is much more important for it promises a reward in both this life and the next. This is true and everyone should accept it.” 1 Timothy 4:7-9 (New Living Translation – First Edition)
