A humorous and thought-provoking post about moving on from the mistakes we have made. It’s Time to Forgive Yourself by Jon Acuff
I’ve been reading a lot lately about stress, and the stress hormone cortisol, and how much it can wreak havoc on our bodies, especially as women. I suspect I’ll be writing more about this soon, but for now, this article is a good start: 10 Ways Chronic Stress is Killing Your Quality of Life by Dr. Axe
This is an interesting article about a woman who had weight loss surgery, dropped 180 pounds, and now realizes it wasn’t all about getting skinny. A good reminder we need good physical, mental, emotional and spiritual health. What Losing 180 Pounds Does to Your Body & Your Mind by Jen Larsen
- Teen MOPS of Rochester. Yeah…this is pretty much one of my babies. There is a huge long story with how this was started and wasn’t done just by me. We had a great group of individuals who put lots of time and money into this program to make it happen. I am still not sure how I managed to start up this group, work and have three kids during these years when I was involved but I do know that there are woman out there who have grown up to be great moms because of this program. Today, Teen MOPS is the only group in our area for teens that are pregnant and teens with kids. Teen MOPS…you know I always have a spot for you in my heart. There are MOPS and Teen MOPS programs all around the world. To see if there is one in your area just visit www.mops.org
- Narrow Road Coffee. This is my husbands baby. My husband and a friend own this company and roast coffee beans in our town of Rochester, MN. Those big burlap coffee bags…yeah, we have a few of those. 🙂 These beans are shipped all over and sold as wholesale to businesses or per bag to individuals. The awesomeness of this business…1) I have fresh coffee beans pretty much all the time (and yes, there is a huge difference from what I can buy on the shelves in the store and local coffee shops and what fresh actually tastes like), 2) 25% of the proceeds go to missionaries around the world. That’s right…what most companies keep as profit…we just give it away. Orders are taken online and if you want…you can send me a note and see what my favorite is. 🙂 Narrow Road Coffee is also a sponsor of The Journey…and we will have some giveaway items soon for someone that is part of The Journey so keep watching for it.
Thanks for joining us at The Journey! Find out more about Jessica and Cori and how The Journey got started. We have a few challenges going on, a 5k coming up soon and free stuff that we are giving away! Check out the links in there and come back soon!
