Stories turn strangers into friends. I asked my friend, Janine to put pen to paper so that you would be encouraged by her journey of growth and healing. Loss and hardships are part of life, but there is always a hope for restoration. This is her story.
Friends make life better. Fostering sibling friendship isn’t easy, but it can be done. For us as adults and for our children, life is much more meaningful when shared with friends. Cultivating friendships take time and intentionality. However, they can also be refreshing and comforting, much like a dip in the ocean on a hot day or a comforting blanket on a chilly night.
I’m sure that we all want to live a fearless life. However, this is not something that comes naturally to most people. Most of the world’s population will face this reality sometime during their lifetime. For some, learning to overcome their fear seems to be a bit overwhelming, and for some their worries or fears seem to overtake them, paralyzing them to live and dream.
Clumsy toddlers emerge into lively children ready to explore their world in just a few short years. My friend, Moira Harding, leads a Motor Development Programme to kids between 2-6 years and advocates that as children are learning to move, they are also moving to learn.
Did you know that your children are digital natives? They haven’t known life on earth without the internet or various devices. The digital pioneers led the charge and I’m a product of that age. However, social media doesn’t need to be scary for us parents.
To choose faith over fear is a courageous thing to do, plus it’s a formula for FearLess living. I have a theory about what I call, “the law of convergence’. My family and friends all laugh at me when I mention it, but in the end, they agree.
