Building a Compassionate Relationship with Yourself
This group offers insight into the ways we lack compassion for ourselves, how that impacts us, and how we can speak God’s truth and grace into our interactions with ourselves. This transformational way of interacting with ourselves then flows out to others.

This group will use the book & CD, “Building a Compassionate Relationship with Yourself” by Kim Fredrickson.
We will gain some understanding of why self-compassion is so hard to extend to ourselves, as well as provide hope and practical help to learn and grow in our ability to relate to ourselves in healthy and gracious ways. This book is filled with compassionate dialogues to extend to yourself, practical exercises to relate positively to yourself, as well as self-soothing skills to calm yourself.
