“…we have a special vocation to steward our own gifts by caring responsibly for ourselves.”   Mark Tranvik, Martin Luther and the Called Life

“Self-care is never a selfish act — it is simply good stewardship of the only gift I have, the gift I was put on earth to offer to others.”  Parker Palmer, Let Your Life Speak
