This fifth and final episode of The Healthy Way series is with our sister of heart, Kristen Kill. A mom to five Kristen has a large family and a large age span of kids. Finding moments to care for her soul can feel like an impossible task. Kristen shares how she finds those pauses and how we can to, no matter our schedules or number of little people at home.
Spiritual health is an important part of who we are as people. It’s not a luxury, but a necessity if we are to flourish because God made us more than physical beings, He gave us soul. It doesn’t cost us anything but time to come to Him in our daily routines, and we can be confident God meets us in these moments. Kristen’s new book, Finding Selah, helps us to meet Jesus in the midst of the mundane and marvelous. Our souls can be rejuvenated by the one who made them.
Whether you are needing a little inspiration in your spiritual life or overcome with with grief and desperation, God will meet you. We pray this episode offers some practical help as you take that next step and do that hard thing to get healthy in your spiritual life.

1 Whoever dwells in the shelter of the Most High
will rest in the shadow of the Almighty.[a]
2 I will say of the Lord, “He is my refuge and my fortress,
my God, in whom I trust.”
3 Surely he will save you
from the fowler’s snare
and from the deadly pestilence.
4 He will cover you with his feathers,
and under his wings you will find refuge;
his faithfulness will be your shield and rampart.
5 You will not fear the terror of night,
nor the arrow that flies by day,
6 nor the pestilence that stalks in the darkness,
nor the plague that destroys at midday.
7 A thousand may fall at your side,
ten thousand at your right hand,
but it will not come near you.
8 You will only observe with your eyes
and see the punishment of the wicked.
9 If you say, “The Lord is my refuge,”
and you make the Most High your dwelling,
10 no harm will overtake you,
no disaster will come near your tent.
11 For he will command his angels concerning you
to guard you in all your ways;
12 they will lift you up in their hands,
so that you will not strike your foot against a stone.
13 You will tread on the lion and the cobra;
you will trample the great lion and the serpent.
14 “Because he[b] loves me,” says the Lord, “I will rescue him;
I will protect him, for he acknowledges my name.
15 He will call on me, and I will answer him;
I will be with him in trouble,
I will deliver him and honor him.
16 With long life I will satisfy him
and show him my salvation.”
