“Faith by itself, if it is not accompanied by action, is dead.” – James 2:17 (NIV)

In a world that often seems filled with noise, distraction, and constant challenges, living your faith can be a struggle.

The essence of Christian living is not about avoiding life’s storms, but learning to sail through them with grace, guided by the light of Christ.

Faith is more than a Sunday commitment—it’s a lifestyle. Keep reading to learn some practical ways to incorporate Christian values into your daily life. The best thing? You can start today!

Start Your Day With God

The first moments of your day set the tone for everything that follows. By beginning your day with prayer, meditation on Scripture, or a devotional reading, you invite God into your plans, worries, and interactions. This practice doesn’t need to be time-consuming; even five minutes can shift your perspective, reminding you of God’s presence and love.

Practice Gratitude

Gratitude is a cornerstone of Christian faith (see what we did there?), transforming how we see the world and our place in it. Make it a habit to acknowledge the blessings in your life, whether through prayer, a gratitude journal, or sharing with others. This habit can change your heart, helping you to see God’s hand in everything from the mundane to the magnificent.

Serve Others

Service is a powerful way to live out Christian values, reflecting Jesus’ call to love and serve one another. Look for opportunities to help those around you, whether it’s volunteering at a local shelter, doing chores for a neighbor, or simply offering a listening ear. These acts of kindness are a testament to the love of Christ. Plus, it just feels good to know you helped impact someone’s life in a positive way!

Build Community

Christianity was never meant to be a solitary journey. Building relationships with fellow believers can encourage you, challenge you, and provide a network of support. Participate in church activities, join a small group, or gather with friends for prayer and fellowship. These connections deepen your faith and remind you that you don’t need to go through things alone.

Incorporate Scripture in Your Life

The Bible is not just a book; it’s a living guide. Make Scripture a part of your daily routine by memorizing verses, reflecting on passages, or incorporating biblical principles into decision-making. This practice can anchor you in truth, provide comfort, and guide your actions.

Live Intentionally

Christian values call for a life lived with intention and purpose. This means making conscious choices that reflect your faith, from the way you spend your time and money to how you interact with others. Ask yourself regularly if your actions align with your beliefs and make adjustments as needed.

Seek Forgiveness – Extend Grace

Finally, living your faith means recognizing your own need for grace while being able to extend it to others. Practice forgiveness, both in seeking it from those you’ve wronged and in offering it to those who’ve wronged you. This mirrors the forgiveness we’ve received through Christ and is essential for healing and reconciliation.

Living your faith in everyday life is a journey of small steps and big leaps, moments of doubt, and times of joy. By incorporating these practical tips into your daily routine, you can grow closer to God and reflect His love to the world around you. Remember, it’s not about perfection but progress, and every day offers a new opportunity to live out the values at the heart of Christian faith.


Research shows that much of the change people experience during their time in therapy is because they felt heard and understood by their therapist–that their therapist “got them” and that the guidance they gave was relevant and applicable.  Because of this, it is critical that you find a therapist whom you can connect with, whom you feel comfortable with, whom you feel “gets you.” Therefore, we encourage you to take a few minutes to read a little about each one of our therapists.
