A calming sanctuary for the body mind and soul is a necessary component of a healthy and balanced lifestyle - a place of refuge from the stresses and tensions of daily life.
Inner peace is a state of consciousness or enlightenment that sparks calmness, cultivates resilience, nourishes well-being and enhances the quality of life.
We need peace of mind to ease our conscience!
We need a sense of hope in the midst of losses, tragedies, and failures.
A calming sanctuary nourishes the soul, inspires the mind and strengthens the body.
Home is Where the Heart is!
A calming sanctuary is found in an atmosphere of love and belonging.
In a warm and loving home, strong family bonds are forged, where children may grow and develop to their full potential with traditions and memories that last forever - love and belonging form the foundation of a wholesome family and a good society.
A calming sanctuary is found in "mindfulness activities" that promote a greater sense of calm and relaxation such as enjoying a hobby, reading, walking and spending time with family and friends.

1. Body - the part with which the individual grows, learns and communicates with the physical realm.
2. Mind - to understand and percieve through life-long experiences.
3. Soul - the part that will have a never-ending future.
These unique properties are all linked and interconnected to Glorify God through faith, worship and humble service.
Life has real meaning when we understand it is a Divine, Gift of God.
It becomes precious when we know there is an eternal destiny.
