Digging Deeper

We are in the midst of a series on the the most important thing about you…. your soul. Your soul is what makes you… you.

    • Your soul drives what you think —about yourself, about life, and other people.

    • Your soul drives what you do, how you act.

    • Your soul ultimately is where joy, or happiness, comes from.

Therefore….

If your soul is unhealthy then your life will be affected in an unhealthy way. If your soul is healthy, then life is affected in a healthy way.

The path to a better life, different life, is to heal the soul.
