In 2008, Kathy Vayder met with Julie Davey to create a class for Christian church settings by adding a spiritual theme to the course. The course has been taught at Cornerstone Fellowship in Livermore, California, since March 2009. Writing for Wellness in Christian Settings is an outgrowth of Kathy's class to help others start Writing for Wellness classes in their churches.
This easy-to-follow guide will help ministers, outreach facilitators, health ministry leaders, and others establish and lead Writing for Wellness classes. These classes provide an extension of the community, caring, and concern received in churches. Participants learn writing techniques to help them relieve grief, forgive, address anger and frustration, and understand their relationship with God.
