Road to Wholeness

We all experience trauma at some point in our life. What do we do with it? Ignore it and move on to 'make it' for the sake of loved ones that may be counting on you? Sarah and Isabell Bowling team up to design a creative way to begin a journey of healing through their different styles of writing that leaves the reader with thoughts to help heal as well as view ourselves in the role we might take to help others in their healing journey. This is a MUST READ BOOK and podcast!!


Show Notes

Story of the Good Samaritan told through the eyes of Bible Teacher, Sarah Bowling and an allegory in modern day by Isabell Bowling.

6 Characters in the Story - which are you? (We actually all are a little of any one of them.)

  1. Victim - one who experienced trauma

  2. Bandits - 'hurt people, hurt people'

  3. Good Samaritan - first to enter the healing journey with the victim. They showed up with time and resources/funds

  4. Priest

  5. Levite - the volunteers in the church who serve others well

  6. Inn Keeper - continues the healing journey with the victim; unseen, under-rated, care for people with trauma

Ways we can Practically Love and Serve Others

1 text someone when feel a nudge to reach out to them. i.e., how are they, ask if can pray for them, need anything

2 Be a safe place for someone to vent and share confidentially with you for them to rest, recover and move forward in their healing

3 Send a gift card digitally like a cup of coffee, a treat, etc. to show you care and thinking about them

4 Spend time with a person feel prompted to reach out to

5 Look at creative ways to serve others i.e., in winter, see if older neighbors need snow shoveled or summer, help mowing their lawn

The defining difference of the 3 who saw the victim (priest, Levite and Good Samaritan) was the later was moved by COMPASSION.

"Care is never wasted." - Isabell Bowling
