No More Bad Days

What makes a good day “good” and a bad day “bad”? For me, a "good" day used to be when I wake up feeling great, I get all my tasks done, the kids do nothing to test my patience, dinner is made and enjoyed, and then I go to bed feeling as great as when... Continue Reading →

Physical Wellness Challenge 04: Cleanse

Happy New Year! I hope your year is off to a great start. I'm a few months behind on posting about my monthly physical wellness challenges. But this one in particular seems like a good one to kickstart the new year. My 18-month journey to better physical health continued with another challenge in October. I'm... Continue Reading →

How to Have Peace of Mind and Heart

I’ve never considered myself to be a worrier. After all, worry, to me at least, meant to be concerned about the future and I’ve always found that to be a pointless exercise. But, worry, by definition, is the same as anxiety, and essentially boils down to a lack of peace. And I've certainly been there.... Continue Reading →

The leaves are changing colour; painting a landscape that makes me stop to marvel. I just love this time of year! Yet, at the... Continue Reading →

The first challenge was to create a hydration habit and I worked on that in July. The second challenge was to incorporate forms of fasting into... Continue Reading →

Be Diligent in Prayer

My mind has been on the topic of prayer a lot this year. Rejoice always, pray without ceasing, give thanks in all circumstances; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you. 1 Thessalonians 5:16-18 I do pray continually.. I am in conversation with God throughout the day; giving praise, asking forgiveness, asking for help... Continue Reading →
