I review a book about Christian anarchy.  Intrigued?  Read on.
It is the beginning of the month, which means it is time for me to review books.  I did not do this post last month because I was following the WEGO Health writing challenge, so I have a lot of books to cover.  Today's review...

Watch me!  A five minute video about how to cut yourself some slack and be gentle with yourself.
After watching a few vlogs the other day, I decided to make my own!  It took me a while to figure out how to upload the video to youtube and I probably did some things to my Google account that I really shouldn't have, but at...

The power of sharing your story.  I share about a workshop I attended called The Respect Institute and how it was helpful.
"It takes strength and courage to tell the truth." Rick Riordan, The Red Pyramid Yesterday's prompt asked me what do I do to help ease my stress and there are many things, like drinking hot tea, journaling and playing music. ...

A recipe for death by chocolate cupcakes and I talk about a way to combat jealousy and envy
Yet the children of your people say, 'The way of the Lord is not fair.' But it is their way that is not fair. Ezekiel 33:17 Recently I sent an email to a friend and after reviewing it, I realized that I had fallen prey to the...

I talk about my proudest achievements in the last five years and about how my faith has deepened.
You have turned my mourning into dancing; You have put off my sackcloth and clothed me with gladness.  Psalm 30:11 Day #5 asks us to share our achievements in the last five years, so if you don't mind some bragging, here ...

A post for world health day, which was way back on April 7.  lol
I think the healthy way to live is to make friends with the beast inside oneself, and that means not the beast but the shadow. The dark side of one's nature. Have fun with it and you know, is to accept everything about oursel...

I talk about giving myself grace.  I am not recovered but am in recovery.
Today's prompt is to tell you about how I maintain a healthy lifestyle, but I am not going to talk about maintaining a physically healthy lifestyle, but a mentally healthy one and that is by giving myself grace. I am realizin...

Protect your sleep schedule.  Not getting sleep could be your undoing-I relate how I almost became undone.

I talk about my hero and what to look for in a therapist.  What do I mean when I say someone is emotionally safe.
Day six is about your hero and my hero is my therapist.  I have been seeing her for nine and a half years and our relationship has changed my life. Some people criticize having a therapist for so long, saying that it must sur...

I advocate living in love and freedom, instead of being caged by fear.  I talk about sexism, depression, anxiety, and RFRA laws
“I must not fear. Fear is the mind-killer. Fear is the little-death that brings total obliteration. I will face my fear. I will permit it to pass over me and through me. And when it has gone past I will turn the inner eye to ...

I talk about how I view my acceptance of my mental illness and I talk about stigma.

Skyland Trail was very helpful. I was there for eight months in 2005 and they got me to start singing again (I had been so depressed that I couldn't sing without crying). I formed a close bond with the art therapist and I learned about process art, which has become a major coping skill to today. At Skyland Trail I met other people who also had schizoaffective disorder for the first time and finally got to internalize that I am not alone. Before ST, I had never met another person with that diagnosis. Today, I still keep in touch with their alumni program and I recently submitted an art project into their art contest. ST has a lot to offer and I am very thankful for it. :)
