Words to SPARK your Heart-Song – Episode #136

What are your favorite hobbies?

Hi everyone. I’m Sherry Douglas with Heart-Song. In our fast-paced world, hobbies can seem frivolous. Some may contend they take us away from things that truly matter. People may become so engrossed in hobbies that they do not have time to make a difference in the lives of others or take care of themselves. Each of us must determine what is healthy, how much time invested in a hobby is appropriate and if there is a balance to be sought.

What are your favorite hobbies? There are numerous benefits to having some. Hobbies can keep us from sitting in front of a TV, playing video games, or scrolling through social media for hours on end to avoid boredom. They can prevent us from wasting time and creating bad habits.

Have you found something you enjoy that helps you relax, feel good about yourself, or challenges you in new ways? Depending on what your hobbies are, you may find they improve your sleep or memory, improve relationships with loved ones that share them with you, or provide a way to meet new people.

Recently I met with a woman at Heart-Song and when asked what her hobbies were, she immediately said that reading and studying Scripture was her go-to activity. She found not only did she truly enjoy this activity, she also found she grew spiritually, had better self-esteem and more confidence.

We invite you to post your hobby below and tell us how it benefits you.

Live the way you want to be remembered. See you next time.
