We all live incredibly busy lives which lead to an unconscious sacrifice of our physical and mental health. Learn how to take back control of your health and well being by making small changes that will have lasting effects.
It is essential to give yourself a minimum of one day a week to cease from working in order to commune with God and to enjoy physical and mental rest. Learn about the importance of establishing a Sabbath, the necessity of keeping it in place, and ideas of what to do on your Sabbath day of rest.
We will work toward the goal of helping participants get the best out of their marriages by increasing the longevity and durability of their Christian relationship. We will also provide tools to fortify relationships to survive and overcome potentially mortal wounds.
The pioneers in the study of Post-Traumatic Growth state, “Individuals can be changed, sometimes in radically good ways, by their struggle with trauma.” Being placed on the special-needs journey is a traumatic event. Individuals should take the time to grieve what has been lost, but then choose to live life deliberately in its new configuration. During this workshop we will discuss the 5 categories of Post-Traumatic Growth (Spiritual Change, New Possibilities, Appreciation of Life, Relating to Others, and Personal Strength), we will dig deeper into recognizing growth in our own lives, and how to engage in activities to facilitate growth in the future. Attendees will participate in a guided exercise that will help to organize internal thoughts with regards to what was lost after the trauma, identify interests that have emerged since the trauma, and create steps needed to engage in new interests. This exercise will help attendees transition from being mired down by traumatic events into living triumphantly and deliberately.
All participants will actively create personal vision boards. Materials will be provided.
We often live in a perpetual state of derailment because we don’t live life deliberately. During this workshop we will discuss and conduct exercises to discover why we do what we do. We will also discuss strategies on how to simultaneously balance work, home, and self successfully.
Happiness is obtainable within the special-needs world, it just looks different. Come fellowship with other special-needs families and learn how to restructure your life to accommodate new demands, hear tips on how to manage unhelpful family members/friends, and recommendations for regaining your happiness.
