Today's Christian Woman focuses on spiritual disciplines and practices to help you go deeper in your faith

Nurture

God is deeply concerned with every aspect of our lives. He wants to comfort, care for, protect, and nurture us. Whether or not you're a mother, or whether you've had a great, loving mother or a neglectful or absent mother, this practice is meant to help you lean into the sweet, comforting arms of a God who loves us compassionately, and who loves to show us the mothering, nurturing side of his character.
