It Is Our Father’s Desire That His Children, “B|WELL” Like Our Elder Brother The Lord Jesus Christ

At B|WELL Biblical SoulCare, our God-given desire is to support our Sisters in Christ in achieving wellness in mind, body, and soul. The B|WELL Biblical SoulCare Outreach Ministry for single mothers and survivors of sex trafficking is devoted to spreading God's love and concern through biblical-based mentoring, support, hope, and healing to women facing these challenges.

3 John 1:2 says, “Beloved, I wish above all things that thou mayest prosper and be in good health, even as thy soul prospereth.”

It is B|WELL Biblical SoulCare’s mission and God-given desire to use Biblical principles to break any possible negative behavioral patterns stemming from the trauma in the lives of God’s daughters. Our mission also encompasses the vital task of helping our sisters recognize and embrace the unwavering, unconditional love Jesus has for us and that he wants to bring forgiveness, hope, restoration, and transformation to their lives.

GENESIS 16:9-13

Hagar, God Sees You!

“The angel of God said, “Go back to your mistress. Put up with her abuse.” He continued, “I’m going to give you a big family, children past counting. From this pregnancy, you’ll get a son: Name him Ishmael; for God heard you, God answered you. He’ll be a bucking bronco of a man, a real fighter, fighting and being fought, Always stirring up trouble, always at odds with his family.”

She answered God by name, praying to the God who spoke to her, “You’re the God who sees me! “Yes! He saw me; and then I saw him!”
