When one of you has a grievance against another, does he dare go to law before the unrighteous instead of the saints? Or do you not know that the saints will judge the world? And if the world is to be judged by you, are you incompetent to try trivial cases? Do you not know that we are to judge angels? How much more, then, matters pertaining to this life! So if you have such cases, why do you lay them before those who have no standing in the church? I say this to your shame. Can it be that there is no one among you wise enough to settle a dispute between the brothers, ...

Repay no one evil for evil, but give thought to do what is honorable in the sight of all. If possible, so far as it depends on you, live peaceably with all.

Hear, O heavens, and give ear, O earth; for the Lord has spoken: “Children have I reared and brought up, but they have rebelled against me. The ox knows its owner, and the donkey its master's crib, but Israel does not know, my people do not understand.” Ah, sinful nation, a people laden with iniquity, offspring of evildoers, children who deal corruptly!

Recommended bedtime tools to help children get a good night’s sleep (and parents too.) 

By Jessica Furino https://www.kpccounselingcenter.com Scotch Plains, N.J.


Provide the same routine, nightly for your children.

Start quiet, relaxing activities 1.5 hours before bed. Begin an hour before bedtime with a fun, relaxing bath (lavender and chamomile oil with help to relax your child.) Turn off all games and electronics 1.5 hours before bed. Let your child play board games, draw, color, build Legos, or other quiet activities. Remove phones until morning. Read to your child or if they are older, have them read each night for 15 minutes or more. Have your child do relaxation techniques at bedtime.

Help them to pray and give thanksgiving before bed.

Teach your children to appreciate and verbalize all their personal gifts (help them to understand how loved, unique and special they are.) Teach them to appreciate and be thankful for their family, friends and school. Help them to lift their concerns to our Father in heaven and develop a personal relationship with Him. Help them to know that He will answer their prayers, keep them safe through the night and help them to be the wonderful child He has created. As they lift their concerns in prayer, you will hear what is on their hearts.

Relaxing instrumental music and white noise:

Play soothing classical music or instrumental music (you can follow me on Spotify and play my playlists.) Some children and adults benefit from “white noise.” A small fan can provide this and helps with sleep.

Exercise daily.

At least an hour each day. Walking, swimming, running, playing at the gym or after school.

Family games; twister, running, playing ball, dancing, biking, going to the playground, hiking and so much more.

Healthy nutrition and diet:

Try to have nightly family dinners. This is a time of sharing for everyone. Start the dinner by asking each member to share 3 good things that happened and 2 not so good.

Have your doctor check your child for allergies; especially food and lactose. 

Make sure your child has a healthy snack after school, drink lots of water, and eats their dinner 2-3 hours before bed.

Make sure your children have a healthy, nutritious meals throughout the day. A small snack 2 hours before bed is helpful (protein and vegetable ie..peanut butter and apple.)

Reduce or eliminate processed foods. Stock up on fresh vegetable, fruit and meats.

Reduce or eliminate sugar. Make sure your child does not have any sugar after 6:00 pm, as it can interrupt their sleep.

Find out if anything is worrying your child:

Go for a walk, spend one on one time talking and listening to your child. Find that quiet time to talk with your child and see if anything is worrying them. Many of us will have nightmares and bad dreams if we have unresolved worries.

Family movie time:

Find encouraging, uplifting, funny movies for everyone to snuggle and watch together.  Youtube kittens, puppies and other funny videos to enjoy together.

Pets:

Puppies and kittens provide comfort, comical relief and a chance for little ones to be responsible and caring for those other than themselves. They also help little ones sleep with a cherished friend.

Diffuse or apply topically Young Living essential oils:

1 drop of lavender on your child’s right toe may help them sleep. You can diffuse 4 drops in their diffuser and keep it running as they sleep.

As a counselor, I frequently work with adults and children who have sleep problems, stress, anxiety and other challenges. Young Living is a Christian company who manufactures and produces nontoxic, pure, products. The therapeutic oils they distill prove to be very effective.

Love the Life You Live, Part 3. Laughter vs anger.

Posted on March 8, 2015 at 1:45 PM Comments comments (0)

Jessica Furino: Posted on Sunday, March 08, 2015 1:46 PM

 

Laughter heals your heart.

 

Laughter is a key ingredient in good health. Being able to laugh at ourselves, our mistakes and seeing the comic relief in all things will draw others to you and ease your mind. Look for mirth when you are angry or exasperated with your spouse or children. God gave us a life to enjoy, not to be disgruntled about. Jesus said He gives us His peace and that we do not need to be afraid. Anger stems from fear and hurt. Give Him your troubles, your anger, your unhappiness and let Him solve your concerns and heal your heart. Enjoy life and leave anger behind. See the comedy in life and embrace your peace and happiness. Love, laugh and live abundantly and with joy.

 

John 14:27 NKJ

Jesus said "My peace I leave with you, my peace I give you. Not as the world gives you, but as I give you. Let not your heart be troubled, be not afraid."

 

 

This little guy greeted me with my coffee this morning, c/o my hubby :)

Knowing our Lord is essential in Living a full life, loving yourself and loving and serving others.

I was privileged to participate in a two week pilgrimage to Israel with a group of extraordinary pastors and Christians. This trip was a spiritual milestone for me as I was able to see, touch, hear and fully embrace my Lord's home land. Here is my movie of the journey, in hopes that it to will help you to understand who our dear Lord is and have a personal glimpse of His home and His heart.

Jessica Furino: Posted on Thursday, February 19, 2015 9:51 AM


 

Life is a gift given to us by God. He loves you so much and He has provided you with everything you need to live a full and thriving life.

God has left us a love letter, His Bible, which is His inspired word to share with us who He is, how much He loves us and how we can traverse life's challenges and obstacles and live a full and abundant life! If you want to start Loving the Life you Live, you need to start by learning who God is and what His promises are to you. This series will guide you, please read Jeremiah 29:11-14 and John 3:16.

Just a footnote, I needed some technical support from Vistaprint. My technician thanked me for the Jeremiah reference as he said it touched his heart and was an answer to his prayers today. Please let God's word minister to you.
