What did Jesus mean when He said, "your faith has made you well"? In a culture that boasts of wellness and well-being, it can make us wonder: what is true well being? How does God define wellness as we await is coming? And what, if anything, does God's definition of wellness have to do with Hygge and how we implement it in our homes? In this episode of Holy Hygge, Jamie Erickson sits down with Trillia Newbell. They discuss all things Biblical wellness: from self care, to time management, to physical and mental wellness.

"Hygge" (pronounced Hyoo-Guh) is a concept derived from Danish culture dating back generations. It is comprised of several major tenets including hospitality, atmosphere, well-being, and comfort (just to name a few). Independently, Hygge is not a "religious" or "Biblical" concept, but it prompts the question: can Hygge be implemented in a Biblical way? Can a concept like Hygge be set apart, or "made Holy." Author and speaker Jamie Erickson would argue, YES! In this limited series podcast, Jamie and a guest will walk through 7 of the core tenets of Hygge: what they are, how listeners can practically implement them in their homes, and most importantly, how each concept can inform the Christian life.
