If you missed Monday night’s Faith and Food class or if you would like a copy of the handouts and awesome recipes, here is the recap of this fun-filled, fabulous event.
Do you ever feel like life has gotten off track? Maybe your summer schedule has thrown you off your normal routine? Being out of routine can make us feel like our life is spinning out of control.
At the August Faith and Food, we went over the basics to help re-establish our routines. Routines do not mean we need to be stuck in a rut. Our spiritual health is the foundation to making our daily routines work so we need to make sure we always keep Jesus as the center of our day.
Dee McCaffrey kicked off the night teaching us the A-B-C’s of nutrition. She demonstrated portion sizes of our plates and taught us just the right combinations to eat a full, healthy, balanced meal each day. You can download the handout (Click Here). You can also watch the recap video on our Facebook Page by liking the page and clicking the videos tab.
Kimberly Arnold showed us how to menu plan and even gave away laminated menu planners. Keeping your weekly menu plan organized will help you stay focused and on task when it comes to your eating schedule. You can download a PDF Copy of the menu. (Click Here)
Kathy Roybal taught us that exercise should not be a chore. We should find what we love and have joy while we do it. She has great tips for you in the handout you can apply each day to help you establish an achievable routine!
Shawna Culp gave demonstrations of five things you can do to keep Jesus at the center of your day. Focused on the quote, “It is not what we do once in a while that shapes our lives. It is what we do consistently.” Your daily routine needs to include Jesus, all day long!
1. Download the First Five APP from Proverbs 31 and start your day with just the right tone!
2. Place a small chalkboard where you get ready and write prayers you can say while doing your hair. You can also write confessions to yourself to avoid negative self-talk. For example one of the scriptures Shawna uses personally on her chalkboard is ” My youth is renewed like the Eagle” Proverbs 103:5 this helps her speak the truth when the mirror says something different!
3. Listen to faith messages in your car. The average person spends 100 mins a day in their car. That is 433 hours per year. Just think if gave half of that time to the Lord!
4. Pray all day long. Not just about the BIG things, but all the little things. James 5:11 says that God cares for you right down to the very last detail.
5. Keep a journal by your bed and jot down something you are grateful for from your day and then use it as a tool to unload any thoughts so you sleep well.
Carol Ensminger came prepared with laminated calendars for all! To focus for success, you must Focus on your goal. Keep your routine as your foremost goal for one month, focusing on nothing else. Having too many goals at once spreads your focus too thin, and makes success less likely. She had us write out one goal for the month and gave tips on how to stay committed to achieve success. By making just a few adjustments to your daily routine, you can change your stress level and bring peace to you and your home. Make sure and catch her tips for goal setting on the recap video on the Facebook Page. You can download the PDF Copy of the Goal Calendar. (Click Here)
