welcome! The purpose of this blog is to speak directly to christians about health.
"Do you not know that your bodies are temples of the Holy Spirit, who is in you, whom you have received from God? You are not your own; you were bought at a price. Therefore honor God with your bodies." 1 Corinthians 6:19-20, The Holy Bible
Why have a Christian Corner?
Healing from the Root's services are for everyone. According to the Christian faith, upon recognition that Jesus Christ is Lord, died for our sins, rose three days later and is seated at the right hand of God, our bodies become temples of the Holy Spirit. Our conviction in this brings cause for special consideration when making health care decisions. Although everyone can benefit from being careful about what they do with or put into their bodies, in the Christian faith, these decisions can directly bring honor or dishonor to God. Being that many healthcare providers do not discuss matters of faith; Christians have been unintentionally misled to believe general medical guidelines are what is best for their temple.
The goal here is simply to provide a space where Christians can find support, information, education, and encouragement about health which is rooted in the word of God. Laura is a strong Christian and has been deeply convicted to offer this service to fellow Christians.
