Video: Where Can You Sign Up for Prayer?
Spiritual and emotional wellness is a crucial part to whole health, even if it's hard to find
This past weekend, the Wendy’s Eating Husband set up shop in my office at Archerfriendly Wellness. Together, we pumped out a few videos, with him behind the lens and me in front of it.
I had a rough week and was in the funkiest of funks, right up until we started recording this video. Sometimes, you have to push yourself to do what you love to do, even if you aren’t feeling the vibe. Once I started talking to you (hello out there!), all the funk faded away, because this is me in my element, doing what I love to do.
I had zero time to prepare, so there were no notes. This was all coming from my brain! I hope it feels like you’re sitting in the room with me, having a conversation. This is how I am in real life, now, don’t you want to come hang out with me?
A few notes…
In the background, the gold giraffe’s face is KISSING my geometric figurine. It bothers me whenever I watch this video. I want to pop in the video and move the giraffe. I need to sign up for prayer for all the problems I have when decor is not in it’s proper place.
In the video, when I identified myself as a Christian, I wanted to go off on a tangent about how I don’t like that word, but I RESTRAINED MYSELF. It’s true that I am a Christian naturopathic doctor, but sometimes I do not like the word Christian because I don’t want to be associated with the crazies. I feel horrible calling some Christians crazy, yet I also feel embarrassed about all the damage Christians have done in this world. Maybe people think I’m the crazy Christian, I kind of hope not, but I can deal if that’s true.
This is what I really want to be known for:
I want to be the kind of love to people that tells them that they are worth it, that they are enough, that they matter, and that no one has forgotten about them. I want to be the kind of kindness that touches people to their core, that gets in places where kindness has not been known.

What do you think? Where do you sign up for prayer? Do you feel safe asking others for prayer? If you’re a Christian, what do you think about having to go down in the front of the church as a means of asking for prayer? I’d love to hear your thoughts in the comments.

Dr archer your kindness and love comes across in all of your messages, be they written or oral. I always figured you for a follower of Christ. It came through in so many ways. I wish I lived close to your practice. I would love to know you and come to you with all my health concerns.
