“Wherefore my beloved, as you have always obeyed, not as in my presence only, but now much more in my absence, work out your own salvation with fear and trembling” Philippians 2:12
Salvation is freely given when we believe in our hearts and confess with our mouths that Jesus is Lord. Our scripture says we must work out our Salvation. This statement can be confusing as it is often taken to mean we must do something; we must work to receive or keep our salvation. Not so! Work out does not mean work for.
We do not work for salvation, but we must engage in a process to allow the gift of salvation that is IN us to be manifested OUTside of us in our living, our being, our doing, and our loving. We must work out what God has put in us so that it shows in our character.
This process is a renewing of our minds, our thoughts, our feelings- our souls.
It is a process of evolving to look like our father.
In this new year, let’s evolve together. Let’s embrace our new creature. Let’s let old hurts, attitudes, perceptions, fears, unclean habits pass away and work on letting all things inside become new.
Evolve Soulcare Ministry and associated ministries are here to help. Divorce Care support, Griefshare support, Free talk therapy and monthly group sessions are available to you.

The Importance of Family Mental Health
An area that can easily be overlooked is having a mentally healthy family. I defend that the foundation of the mentally healthy family is building and maintaining hearty family relationships. The restrictions from the recent global pandemic emphasized the importance of relationships amongst those under the same roof. Physical touch, words of encouragement, quality time and acts of service are all expressions of love that are vital in all relationships—to include amongst relatives. The following tips are simple but important in maintaining good mental health in our families:
1. Commit to having healthy family relationships. Be intentional on building relationships with the individual members of the family. Reach out to family members that you may not have connected with in the past. Resolve to do your part to ensure that your family is as close as possible.
2. Communicate frequently amongst the family. Set yourself a reminder to connect with family members on a consistent basis. Facetime and Google Hangouts allow face to face interaction with relatives. Zoom calls and conference call lines are excellent ways to bring the entire family together— even during the pandemic.
3. Clear up any and all confusion that may exist in the family. Confusion and unresolved issues with family members create mental and emotional problems. Unfortunately, all of us have either had or seen disputes and disagreements in families persist for far too long. Although we’ve known it all along, the year 2020 showed us that life is precious, unpredictable and is not to be taken for granted. Encourage family members to forgive and love each other in order to build and maintain their mental health as well as to build up the family unit.
4. Cultivate a culture that encourages having a mentally healthy family. For far too long, the cultures in our families have caused mental and emotional trauma while shunning being mentally healthy. Sadly, there are members of our families who have been physically, mentally, emotionally and even sexually abused and told things like, “what goes on in this family stays in this family.” In recent years, society has done an excellent job at exposing the hidden issues that have caused mental and emotional pain. Talk to your family about the importance of being healthy mentally and emotionally and encourage family members to seek help if necessary.
In the words of the apostle John, I pray that you and your family will, “prosper and be in health”—physically, financially, relationally, mentally, and emotionally.

Evolve SoulCare Monthly Momentum for JULY 2021
Relax, Relate, & Release
Matthew 11:28- “Come to me, all you who are weary and heavy burdened, and I will give you rest.”
It is so exciting for the children to see another school year end and all the great possibilities that the Summer may bring begin! I am sure that your child(ren)returning to the building and/or being a remote learner(s) had some challenges.
Now that June is over let us take a few minutes to EXHALE! I must say that again, EXHALE!
We are now living with some changes to our normal. Many refer to this way of life as the
“New Normal.” When we focus on the pandemic and the lives lost or affected by CoVid-19, we may find ourselves overwhelmed, however, turning to the holy word and creating a special place and time to meditate, pray, worship, and relax is a wonderful way to reset!
We must take time to reset, regroup and retreat with the people we love and who love us. The pandemic taught a valuable lesson, that making time to spend with family, friends, and self, produce precious moments and memories.
Take some time to release negative energy and negative people from your life. If parenting is overwhelming seek help through community resources to ensure you and your children are safe, happy, and healthy. Spend intentional quality time with your children. Incorporate reading God’s word together and if/when possible, invite their friends to join.
Take time out for yourself. You cannot give your best if you have no rest!
If you or someone you know is feeling overwhelmed, an Evolve SoulCare member is available to talk. Call 931-905-2200 or email [email protected] Visit our website at www.evolvetbcc.com.

Joshua 1:9- “BE STRONG AND COURAGEOUS. DO NOT BE AFRAID; DO NOT BE DISCOURAGED, FOR THE LORD YOUR GOD WILL BE WITH YOU WHEREVER YOU GO.”
Behind the scenes of every great accomplishment and victory in history, there is a woman. March is an annual declared month that highlights the contributions of women in history. As women, it is important to maintain strong mental health because we are often the backbone of our families, careers, and our community’s accomplishments.
Women with strong mental health qualities, carry characteristics of being confident, productive, optimistic, go-getter, fear tackler, caring, not afraid to stand up for beliefs, proud, not phased by what others say, and are true to self.
Confidence helps us to not compare ourselves to others. A confident woman knows and accepts who she is.
Mentally strong women are always looking for the next task to tackle. Accomplishments contribute to strong mental health. It is also important to listen to your body and know when to rest.
Being open minded and positive impacts our mood. Having an optimistic outlook allows your mindset to grow.
Working towards our dreams and goals, means allowing our creativity to flow, turning our thoughts into reality.
Being patient during trials and tribulations is an attribute of being strong mentally and relying on God and recognizing that He is in control.
Kindness and caring for others, helps us to feel good about ourselves, while bringing out the best in us.
Mentally strong women stand up and speak up! Advocating for morals and values that you believe in takes courage and confidence.
Being proud of yourself and your accomplishments deserves to be displayed.
Mentally strong women overcome negativity and are not defined by other people’s thoughts or opinions.
Being comfortable in your own skin is a sign of strength and oneness with self. Mentally strong women are true to who they are. Flaws and all.
Mental strength has nothing to do with popularity or money and all to do with self-care. It is not always easy to be mentally strong. We must learn what works and what does not work for our mental peace and help another sister along the way.

Be Made New Again!
We are all happy to see 2020 behind us and look forward to the promise of 2021. Each new year, we offer declarations and resolutions to make some changes in our lives. We consider getting a new body through exercise, right eating, or maybe we declare that we will let go of bad habits, bad relationships and bad behavior. We’re all hoping for a better, brighter, healthier, happier year.
The truth is that we as Christian believers were made new when we accepted Christ as our Lord and Savior. The bible says in 2 Corinthians 5:17, that if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature; old things are passed away; behold all things are new.
Not only were we made brand new then, we can become new again, transformed anytime by the renewing of our minds. Romans 12:2 tells us to “be not conformed to this world; but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind…”
So as we move into a new year, and make our declarations and resolutions, let them be girded by the truth and process of God.
1. Renew your mind with the water of the Word. Take on God’s thoughts toward and about you, rather than what the world says about you. Practice looking at yourself in the mirror and hear God’s Word that says ‘you are fearfully and wonderfully made”. (Psalm 139:14)
2. Think about things that are positive, that are inspiring, that are uplifting . (Philippians 4:8)
3. Take a nature walk. Elevate your faith by seeing all that God has created. Will he not do more for you than the birds of the air? ( Matthew 6:26-34)
4. Breathe! The Lord will put breath in you and make you live again (Ezekiel 37.5)
If you or someone you know is in need of support, an EVolve SoulCare member is available. Call 931-905-2200 to schedule a FREE talk session.
