Join host Kristin Sunanta Walker with Dr. Paul Meier, Sam Webb and counselor Melanie Vann for a lively, intense, and deep discussion around the importance of taking care of you first.  Melanie, Sam, Kristin, and Paul are care takers but Sam so wisely reminded us on the show about putting the oxygen mask on yourself first. We have more to give (since that is what motivates each of us – giving to others – leading with the heart of a servant) when we practice self-care.  Take a journey with us as we talk about personal stories, our ups and downs when it comes to over giving and under caring about ourselves, and how our listeners can make an important difference in their own self-care.
