Hold on to instruction, do not let it go;
guard it well, for it is your life.
Wellness does not begin and end with only our bodies but encompasses the whole person: Spirit, Soul, and Body. All three aspects of our being are vulnerable to illness and when one part of ourselves is unwell, the other parts are negatively affected.
We are not born knowing how to care for our bodies. We gain some wisdom through trial and error but much of what we know about healthy living we are taught from our parents, friends and the media.
It can be difficult to sort through the massive amount of health information available today. Some of the information is good and trustworthy. Other information ranges from fictional and silly to manipulative and dangerous.
The First Family Church Wellness Ministry offers educational opportunities to our attenders and the Ankeny Community to provide good, solid health information based on both peer-reviewed scientific information and the Truth of God’s Word.
