Anxiety Buster: Time to Think

How do you spend/invest your time? Who do you spend your time with? Do you have any guilt over your answers? I think our personality types play into how we answer these questions. For me, as an INFJ, I struggle with what I have to do versus what I need to do. In my list... Continue Reading →

Anxiety Buster: Advanced Meal Planning

After many years of planning meals more on the fly than with forethought, and feeling the need to reduce my anxiety and stress in every area possible, I started working on meal plans last November. My first goal was to attempt to plan meals for 2 weeks in advance. As we live in the country,... Continue Reading →

Covid-19: Active Rest

Since our provincial government has encouraged us to stay at home, I have been trying to plan out meals and calendar activities for this month and next. I fully intended on staying inside and not risking going out for shopping, but as our risk of contracting the virus will only increase over the next several... Continue Reading →

Current Events in Our Area: COVID-19

I don't tend to write much about the 'once in a lifetime' experiences that I go through. I'm not sure why that is because I love to read first-hand accounts of those who have survived big happenings. I've also been avoiding social media and all of the "stay positive/don't panic/toilet paper hoarding/homemade hand sanitizer recipes"... Continue Reading →

Pink Glasses of Hope

"Honor your own pace. "Walk, don't run." Recovery doesn't care about your ambition, only on your current ability. Mental illness is trauma and trauma takes time to heal."             Sam Dylan Finch The problem with knowing the basics of something, is forming assumptions about how long it should take to master...

Renewed: Day 37, Having a Voice

"When we remain silent or refuse to use our gifts, we hamper the body of Christ from achieving its fullness. God places members in the body of Christ to bring it to health, and we are part of the body. Our voices and gifts matter." (Renewed, Leigh Powers, pg 155) I am passionate about people...

Renewed: Day 33, Beauty in the Body

"Christ died for the church. That bears repeating. Christ died for the church. He died for us as individuals, yes. But he also died for us as a body, for who we are together. There is a corporate power and identity in the church that is valuable and precious -- and beautiful. Some days it... Continue Reading →

Renewed: Day 32, Redemption

"...those lessons were costly. And the church - have they learned anything from this? Or will they repeat the same process with another pastor two years down the road: hope, disillusionment, blame, conflict, gone? It's out of my hands now.  God, I want to believe nothing is wasted with you. But what was the purpose... Continue Reading →

Resting

This past Autumn, a few of us at our church prayer meeting were given similar thoughts on the need for healing in our church and community. We weren't sure what it all looked like, but my pastor-husband began to research different options and we all began to pray about it. This week, we are holding... Continue Reading →

Renewed: Day 8, Expectations

There are always those few people in a congregation that slyly tell me their criticisms of my husband or ask me to pass on a message to my husband for them. Seemingly innocent, but not. These are people who consistently act in ways that demonstrate their desire to control my husband. 'Who better to go... Continue Reading →
