At Natural Living Family, we believe that the abundant life that Christ refers to in John 10:10 is made up of SEVEN key areas and that we need to strive to care for each of them to experience true Biblical health. These seven areas include: spiritual, physical, mental, emotional, spiritual, financial, occupational, and social.
Each area is connected to each other and, like a chain, you are only as strong as your weakest link. If your physical body isn’t performing how it should, it’s going to weigh you down emotionally and cause strain in your relationships. If your job isn’t going well or you aren’t working up to your full potential, it’s going to impact your financial health and your mental health by raising your stress levels. And so on.
Enjoying Biblical health, then, is about finding balance in all aspects of life and seeking to improve each and every area without letting one lag behind.
And, this is the driving purpose behind Natural Living Family. To help you do just that.
We invite you to be part of our growing online Natural Living Family so you can connect with other like-minded believers – people that are committed to helping you experience an abundant life. And anyone can become part of the family!
Natural Living Family is the premiere evidence-based education site for Biblical Health. Learn to live the Abundant Life with confidence.
