How do you begin calming your mind and uplifting your spirit?

STEP 1: You must learn how to get quiet.

Quiet means more than a lack of speaking, it’s a moment of peace, where interferences of any kind is not welcome.  You may think that you know how to be quiet, but there is a skill to being still. Look at the steps below and try this week to have a quiet moment.

Take a moment in your day to sit and be still.

  • Cut off or silence all technology
  • Dim the lights in the room you are in (or light a candle)
  • Close your eyes
  • Get in a comfortable position (sitting or lying down)
  • RELAX

This quiet moment can be 30 seconds to 5 minutes, just allow yourself to be still and uninterrupted. Let me know how the experience is for you!

Top 3 Productivity and Calendar apps for families

Uncategorized

Check out these incredible apps which assist families in productivity and organization!

1. Google Calendar

The calendar from Google is one of the most-widely used apps because it’s free, simple and available on all platforms. All you need is a Google email address and you’re good to go. Google’s color-coding options make it easy to divide up different types of tasks, activities and events, so that each person can filter their view by what matters to them. The ability to share calendars make it the perfect option for busy families with older children who have a lot of practices and other dates to keep track of on a weekly basis

2. Trello

Trello is a project management tool that has been loved by professional project managers for years, but tons of families rely on it as well. Essentially an electronic corkboard, Trello can be as simple or as complicated as you would like it to be. You can create a “board” for anything, from a family vacation to meal-planning. Share it with your family members and anyone can add “cards” made up of links, thoughts, dates, to-dos and more. Family members can comment on cards and easily move them around by dragging and dropping. You can also find templates for Trello created by other families that you can save to your own Trello for your family’s use.

3. Cozi

Cozi has been around for many years and is still the go-to family organizational tool for many parents. It boasts a host of features such as family calendars, to-do lists, recipe sections, shopping lists and even a space for a family journal. Because there are so many features within Cozi, some parents find it overly complicated, but it’s still a favorite for many. With over 20 million users, Cozi is cross-platform and definitely worth checking out. The ad-supported version is free, but an ad-free version is also available as a paid upgrade .

Can Meditation improve health?

heart and mind, inspiration, life, meditation

YES… it Encourages a healthy lifestyle.
Studies have shown that meditating increases your immunity and helps fight off diseases. Meditation causes you to relax, which increases a compound called nitric oxide that dilates your blood vessels and causes your blood pressure to drop. A lower blood pressure improves your cardiovascular and immune health, as well as helps you to have a better night’s rest!

Do you know how to find peace?

During the last 8 months of my life, I have been through the most transformative experiences. Experiences that made me evaluate my values, passions, and direction in life. One thing that stood firm in this time of transition was the need for peace. I gained some things, lost some things but found a true center, a solid direction that is unwavering. This came by asking myself honest questions. I encourage you to use the last few months of this year and ask some difficult questions that will lead you to a bright and clear 2020. Welcome, a 2020 that is surrounded by peace.

Questions:

  1. What do I want out of life?
  2. Why?
  3. What is the basis of my faith/ why do I believe what I believe?

El viernes es para el Perdón

faith, heart and mind, life

¿Estás listo para perdonar? 
una de las mayores razones por las que extiendo el perdón a las personas que me rodean es porque soy honesto acerca de lo defectuoso que soy. 
cuando era más joven, me enfrentaría a la idea de que hago muchas cosas mal. Siempre tuve una razón o una explicación lógica de por qué Cometí un error o dejé caer a alguien. Nunca admitiría que había arruinado o hecho algo malo. Por ejemplo: 
“si la persona que conduce delante de mí iría más rápido, no sería tarde” 
“si hubieras madurado, sería capaz de ser honesto contigo”
si comete un error, no importa cuál sea la explicación que sigue, debe pedir perdón. La palabra de Dios dice pedir perdón todos los días. 
servimos a un Dios que quiere que venamos a él con nuestros problemas y nuestro problema para que él pueda intercambiar nuestras dificultades con su provisión y gracia. 
si no aprendemos cómo reconocer nuestras malas acciones, entonces estamos diciendo que no hay necesidad de un Salvador.

Todo el mundo comete errores, su tiempo que aprendemos a convertir esos errores a la única persona que puede arreglarlos. Dios.

Dreams

devotion

Dreams, déjà vu, ah-ha moments all have one thing in common. It is a moment where the supernatural meets the natural.

Have you ever experienced a time where you see God connect the dots and make muddy waters clear on and idea or situation?

The special moment is important, because if you are a believer, then you understand that God has intention in our life and desires for us to tap into His glory and provision. When we present our bodies as a living sacrifice pure and open to the will of God, we then encourage these life altering moments into our life.

What do I mean by a sacrifice, I mean “praying instead of watching tv ” More examples are : Reading your bible every day, taking time out of your day to worship God just because He is God. All of these thigs are a sacrifice because quite frankly you don’t have to do them.

God is always assisting and uplifting us, we must choose to tune into His love and divine power.
