  • Soothing Yourself

    Sometimes a problem looks and feels severe when I am hungry, exhausted, overwhelmed or stressed.  It’s hard to trust who I am when I feel pushed around by my own moods and emotions.

    Knowing how to soothe myself can radically change the situation.  Soothing yourself is a skill that is easily learned but must be practiced.  It switches off the response in the brain that produces a racing heart, limited thinking, tense muscles, sweaty hands, sleeplessness and even panic, anxiety and depression. 

  • Sharing the signs of God in nature

    Paul writes in Romans 1:20, “For since the creation of the world God’s invisible qualities, his eternal power and divine nature, have been clearly seen, being understood from what has been made, so that people are without excuse.” 

    Some of the examples of this also include Christian symbols found in nature that inspire people.
