Scripture: Genesis 45:24
I am not sure if your home is like mine, but we made it about 45 minutes into self-quarantine before my kids started fighting about something. We quickly decided that a schedule with lots of fresh air was in order. I realize that while this situation is something adults know is unprecedented, children are looking to us for reassurance and normalcy. There are a lot of emotions in our house right now, We have embraced the words that my friend, the Rev. Jill Williams, uses as a school chaplain to center the children: “Find your peace," Today we are focusing on ways to find peace, which includes naming the feelings that are disrupting that peace.
Today we are focusing on how you might think more about finding your peace and naming emotions as well as providing some resources for you to use in putting together a schedule and activities.
