Rachel Hollis “Four Things I’m Doing to Live Well, Even During Quarantine”

It’s been one full month since our family has been quarantining (is that a real word? Let’s go with it). Dave, myself and four kiddos all in one …

Four Things I’m Doing to Live Well, Even During Quarantine

Joy List

There is no doubt we all have challenges…however we all have something that brings us JOY as well; cup of coffee, our Bible, clean water, our jobs, our kiddos, a good song…when we start the day with some type of gratitude practice, we’ll learn to look for joy throughout our day.

Below is something that came out today in a challenge I am participating in “next 90 days” with Rachel and Dave Hollis. If you’re interested or want to learn more, check out their website or follow the on FB or Instagram.

Have a blessed week and try to look for the joy, Christy Jo

Bye Bye Norwex

Happy Friday everyone! Not sure about you, but I am starting the day with a grateful heart and beyond thankful that I see the SUN!! I’m working today but can see the sun through m office window and just want to sit in the sun and cry… okay anyways why I am writing today.

Unfortunately, I will no longer be a Norwex consultant, therefore not selling any more Norwex products. I have loved getting to know these products but financially I can’t keep it up anymore.

So I have a few products left (that I want to sell) and will still be using the product just not selling. I defiantly have some Norwex staples in my home that I LOVE!

What changes are you making during this Pandemic? What have you learned? Honestly, Positive or negative, we will not be the same after this is all over and I pray for you and that you will make Positive changes!

Lord, be with each one of us and grant us what we may stand in need of!

Blessings to each of you, Christy Jo

Anxiety Around Current Events

blogs.webmd.com/mental-health/20200302/9-ways-to-avoid-panicking-about-current-events

Times of Uncertainty

Anxiety! Anxiety, Stress, Worry – these levels are through the roof right now for so many of us! Worry about if we’ll have enough food, enough money for that food, who will get the food, what will happen if I test positive for Covid-19, will I still have a job, etc, etc etc. We ALL have some type of worry – whether it is large or small, we all have worries. But what we don’t all have, is the comfort of Jesus Christ and the belief in Him! the belief that whatever happens, He’s got this! He is in Control!

Throughout the Bible God speaks on anxiety more than once! He LOVES us and he will take care of us! However, we need to trust Him and tell Him/Give Him our fears and worries. Cast your cares upon Him!

Matthew 6:25-27  “Therefore I tell you, do not be anxious about your life, what you will eat or what you will drink, nor about your body, what you will put on. Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothing?  Look at the birds of the air: they neither sow nor reap nor gather into barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not of more value than they? And which of you by being anxious can add a single hour to his span of life?”

Psalm 55:22  Cast your burden on the LORD, and he will sustain you; he will never permit the righteous to be moved

2 Thessalonians 3:16  Now may the Lord of peace himself give you peace at all times in every way. The Lord be with you all.

1 Peter 5:7 Cast all your anxiety on him because he cares for you.

Psalm 23:4  Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil, for you are with me; your rod and your staff, they comfort me.

I hope and pray you all are somehow blessed through this uncertain time, Christy Jo xoxo

Confidence

4 ways to build your Child’s Confidence

  • Be Realistic
  • Dig Deeper
  • Watch Your Words
  • Focus on Personal Growth

Confidence is such an important part of who we are and having confidence as a kid sets us up for the rest of our lives. If we have that strong confidence as a kid, we build a platform and as we grow, it can get beat down or we continue to build upon it. But if you have something as a base, that’s the first step! And as parents, its our responsibly to help instill this in our kids. Attached to this blog are a few articles that may help you along the way 🙂

  • CONFIDENCE is a feeling of self-assurance arising from one’s appreciation of one’s own abilities or qualities.
  • SELF – CONFIDENCE is a feeling of trust in one’s abilities, qualities, and judgment

Another great article from Working Mother site – 10 Tips on How to Build Confidence in Kids

Instill that confidence! BLESSINGS,

“Skin cancer is the most common cancer in the United States, with more cases diagnosed every year than all other cancers combined.”
