Learn to Forgive...Overnight

Have you ever struggled with releasing forgiveness?

Forgiveness is a way of life, but sometimes it's not always easy to heal the heart where people have caused deep hurt and pain. I remember a time where it took me 4 months of intentionally working on forgiving and renewing my mind towards someone who hurt me deeply. It triggered so much within me that I read every scripture I could find on the topic, got a book on it, and journaled regularly in my quiet time to uproot this dark pain. Thankfully, at the end of that season, my heart was able to heal.

Then, a smaller degree of offense began to nestle into my heart. In December 2019, I went to bed after having an argument with my husband that left me feeling offended. The Lord spoke to me through a dream and gave me insight into how this offense effected us. I immediately woke with not just an interpretation, but a quickening within my spirit to repent (change the way I thought) and release forgiveness. I have shared...

Wondering when to talk to kids about sex?

Wondering when to talk to kids about sex?

I have heard this question multiple times, "When is the right age to start talking to children about sex?"

Sex is an important topic that we cannot shy away from as parents. It is not only a natural desire that humans have, but an important way husbands and wives connect in marriage. The problem is, too many parents are either too embarrassed to talk about it because no one told them how to talk about it in a healthy way or maybe they were shamed to talk about it, or they minimize the importance and assume the school system will eventually teach their children.

We should not view this topic as a one-time conversation, and definitely not a conversation about the how-to's of intercourse, but think of it as an ongoing dialogue about sexual health and development that is age appropriate with the intent to raise up sexually healthy individuals. Talking to your children about sex doesn't have to be awkward. It starts with helping children to know...

The Emotional Black Friday Aftermath

Uncategorized Nov 26, 2019

Ever struggle with the emotions of Black Friday? Many people have a fear of missing out on the latest deals or have buyer's remorse after overspending. Here are a few tips on why we struggle with this and how to move forward to avoid the emotional aftermath of Black Friday.

Black Friday provokes many emotions in us. From a mindset of FOMO (fear of missing out) on the latest deals, to buyer's remorse from overspending. Not only that, but it is chaotic with the overwhelmingly large crowds of people. There are countless car accidents, slips and falls in stores from people rushing through, to even violence altercations that have included stabbing and punching, and have even led to death.

Marketers are paid to do a good job of selling merchandise and they use psychology of the human mind and decision-making to do so. They build upon a sense of urgency and need, fears people have, and they play on impulse or how people will use justification of a "good deal"...

A Fun Way to Develop Patience

 

Ever get tired of your child's impulsivity?

Feeling bad for nagging all the time?

Guess what...you can use the same secret play therapists use all around the world...games.

Everyday games can be used for developing different skills and abilities in children.

For example, if you want to help your child develop patience, focus, and fine motor skills, play the game Operation. The classic version I had when I was a child didn't make any sounds, but now there is an edition which has silly, goofy sound effects to make the game more fun.

If your child gets frustrated easily and you want to increase his ability to tolerate stressful situations, start with this game. You prepare your child before the game and explain that they are amazing at lots of different things, but one thing they are working on is the ability to stay calm or comfort their feelings when things don't go their way. Tell them they are to work on this skill when they play. Some things to highlight is that you will...

Sensitive, But Not Easily Offended

self care Sep 20, 2019

Have you ever been told, "You're too sensitive" or, "Get over it" because someone or a situation hurt you? Or, maybe you've been guilty of saying that to someone else?

Sometimes, people can be so dismissive and we can get paralyzed in knowing how to respond. But what's the alternative? To stuff our emotions or get argumentative with someone who just doesn't get it anyway?

There have been times where I dealt with my emotions by stuffing them, or telling myself that I just won't share how I really feel, or just bluntly arguing to get my point across....well, that didn't work out too well for me. ‍‍I found myself in a pattern of broken and disconnected relationships and never feeling truly known.

Through additional experiences in life, I finally learned how to protect my heart, while staying authentically connected in order to love people well. Am I perfect at it? Not by any means, but I have come a LONG way.

You may be thinking, "Seriously? Is that even realistic or possible?"
