Selfcare, tea and verse mapping 101

Trista Laborn

The world health organization (WHO) defines selfcare as the ability to promote health, prevent diseases and maintaining health with and without the support of a healthcare provider. Anything that promotes health, and prevents diseases is what stood out to me most.

Drinking hot tea when your trying to relax or Iced tea when you are on-the-go doing everyday things. My favorite Tea is "My Morning Greens" with all of the benefits of the ingredients I put together. Also, how my body feels when I drink Green Tea. This is part of my selfcare everyday.

If you haven't heard of Verse Mapping means getting real about studying the Bible. More than simply reading a verse or Scripture passage, verse mapping uses Bible study tools to research what you’ve read---to learn about what God is saying and how you can apply his Word to your life. The NIV Verse Mapping Bible includes 350 partially completed verse maps to get you started.

Go beyond just reading the Bible.

In the NIV Verse Mapping Bible, author Kristy Cambron expands her verse mapping curriculum series to include verses from the entire Bible, showing you how to compare Bible translations, pick out meaningful words, and delve into the true meaning of each verse using starter verse maps and prompts. Verse mapping will help you study the historical context, transliteration, translation, connotation, and theological framework of a verse. This unique study technique includes exploring Hebrew and Greek word studies, finding connections in Scripture, comparing Bible translations, and learning as much as you can from your time in God’s Word. 

Verse mapping involves five steps:

  1. Choose: Select a verse and write it out.
  2. Compare: Record this verse in two or three other Bible translations and underline key words that are the same or different between translations.
  3. Research: Look up the Hebrew or Greek meaning for the underlined words and record it.
  4. Consider: Ask questions of the verse. Imagine what it would be like to have experienced what’s happening. Read the verses surrounding this verse and use other study tools to dig even deeper, if you prefer.
  5. Apply: What is God saying to you? How does this verse relate to your life today?
