Leap if Faith is a wonderful opportunity to connect with others in the community and shop local. They offer a wide variety of church supplies, books, wall decor, knick knacks and more. The owners Larry and Robin Minton pour back into the community in endless acts if servitude. I highly reccomend Leap of Faith book store.

Recognizing unhealthy patterns that run in your family and deciding not to carry them into your family as an adult is noteworthy.

Hello friends. My children's book depicts a blended family with two beautiful children. Theo is in "big school" while little Addie is almost 2. Here we see Theo learn responsibility and tracking progress with a star chart. Along the way he narrates his time earning stars to get a monkey at the Zoo gift shop. The moments of comic relief will be relatable for parents of small children. Available on Amazon.com

I have endless belief in human beings.

When I see that a vast majority of people are: depressed, anxious, + addicted (to substances, to other people, to avoidance, + to various forms of escapism)—I see a society that functions + normalizes things that create emotionally unhealthy adults. My belief is that these disorders are actually people’s healthy response to unsafe or dysfunctional environments. Rather than normalizing sickness, we need to have conversations about changing the way we function as a society. People are unwell for a REASON.

SOME THINGS THAT ARE “NORMAL” THINGS THAT ARE DYSFUNCTIONAL:

1. Doing jobs we hate at companies that: violate boundaries, pay terribly, discard employees or leave them feeling not valued or replaceable.

2. Placing pressure on children starting at young ages to perform + achieve academically in subjects they have little or no passion for.

3. Modeling love as: abuse, betrayal, enabling or caretaking.

4. Polarizing (black + white thinking) used on both sides to create collective fear to promote political agendas.

5. Downplaying the *vastly important* role of parenting + mothering (as well as not providing the emotional support parents need to raise healthy children)

6. Survival mode as an acceptable way of living

7. Disconnection from nature + healthy food sources.

8. Family messaging that relies on guilt, manipulation, or fear to keep family members controlled or in line that is labeled as “cultural.”

9. Alcohol used as a way to cope, unwind, relax, celebrate every function.

10. Conditioning girls to be kind + polite (fawn response) while conditioning boys to be strong + manly (emotional suppression)

11. A lack of meaning or purpose— conditioning human to be production machines. Stripping humans of their creative nature.

12. Lack of community, connection, being of service.

13. Chronic loneliness + isolation

14. Urgency culture: expecting everyone to be available 24/7

15. Promoting secrecy or denial as a way to deal with issues within families in the name of “moving on from the past”

God does not compromise integrity for achievement. Look at the private conversation between God and Joshua in Joshua 1: 8. God is talking to Joshua as he becomes the leader of the Isrealites after Moses died.

Self-care is the journey that promotes healing trauma. We all have trauma related body responses and triggers. Awareness begins the healing journey.
