Imagine how it would feel to feel a deep sense of calm no matter what life brought your way. Imagine smiling and enjoying every moment rather than feeling caught up with a barrage of things to do and people who are demanding your time and attention. Oh the joy. Some time for you. Not feeling like your ship is being tossed on the waves of life’s storms. What would you give for that miracle?
How much we desire peace in our lives. The promised peace that passes all understanding which so often seems like a pie in the sky promise not based in reality. And how often we catch ourselves yelling in a moment of frustration, smiling when we feel like crying and collapsing into bed at night wishing we had been “better’. What’s wrong with us anyhow? Can’t we just be content with such things as we have?
Well, it’s not that easy. Putting everyone else’s needs first can take a toll on even the strongest person. Feeling lost and unimportant can leave us feeling a bit resentful and unhappy. It’s okay to admit it. I felt that way too. Until I learned the importance of self-care and I coupled with that an emotional management strategy I developed and road-tested in my own home with my family. It took a lot of practice and many failed attempts, but soon enough I was sailing more smoothly even when the storms of life came crashing into my shore.
I knew this was too good to keep to myself so I wrote Ride the Wave: Journey to Peaceful Living, to detail my own journey from reactivity to peace and share it with you. From that sprung this 8-week course and a companion journal and workbook to help you successfully navigate the storms in your life.
Jesus spoke to them and they calmed down. You can speak to your spirit as well. You can, with the help of God and some new life and emotional management strategies, find that peace that passes all understanding. I did. I trust you can too.
This can be the best purchase you make all year. Commit to learning and practicing these principles and watch as everyone else follows your lead. You have the ability to change the entire dynamic in your home. Starting with you!
