The Spiritual Leader’s Guide to Self-Care is an ideal companion for clergy, lay leaders, and others who would like guidance about how to make changes in their personal lives and ministries but do not want to read a text-heavy book about self-care. The guide addresses seven themes: Creating a Life Vision; Caring for Yourself at Work; Nurturing Your Relationships; Caring for Your Spirit and Body; Caring for Your Finances; Caring for Your Intellect; and Sustaining a Life Vision.
Readers may work through one of the 52 sections each week or adopt a more leisurely pace. The guide includes journalwriting suggestions, personal reflection questions and activities, guidance for sharing the discovery process with another person, an activity for the coming week, and suggested further resources, such as novels, videos, and Web sites.
