Season 1, Ep. 4

Abiding in Christ & Building Stress Resilience


On this episode of The Joy Prescription Podcast, my co-host, Brooke Jack, and I continue to explore the first step to creating vibrant health in my Joy Prescription Toolbox - just be still and breathe. Specifically, we examine the power of abiding in Christ and building stress resilience. You may be surprised to learn just how many ways we can positively influence our health through biblical wisdom and lifestyle medicine.


Our discussion centers around these main ideas:

  • Abiding in Christ
  • How chronic stress impacts our Hypothalamic-Pituitary-Adrenal (HPA) axis
  • The importance of physical, mental, emotional & spiritual rest in our health
  • Practical action items for building stress resilience
