In a time when “social distancing” to “flatten the curve” has literally hijacked life as we used to know it, it’s critical for our emotional health to stay upbeat whenever possible for what could be a long haul.
At the moment, though in this together collectively, we may have different coronavirus impact depending on where we live (the San Francisco Bay area, for example, has a mandatory shelter in place order).  Some of you may have kids at home that are doing some kind of online schooling (perhaps while you try to work if you’ve had the ability to do so remotely).  Others may still be going to work because your area has not been restricted yet or perhaps you are one who is considered an exception (in health care or other required social services).  And there are surely those who are terrified about fundamental needs and their economic survival if out of work during this pandemic.
One thing seems pretty clear.  It could be a while.  As we settle in inside to decrease the spread of COVID-19, now more than ever before in any of our lives is it important to stay connected with the people we care about and find

Many small businesses tout themselves as “family-owned.” This description can often be synonymous with nepotism, or the act of hiring close friends and family members, and can have a negative connotation. However, there can be many benefits to hiring family in the workplace if you do it correctly. How hiring family members […]

At the grocery store yesterday, I noticed that people seem dazed.  I watched a shopper in the parking lot as she bewilderedly looked for her car (though I think we’ve all done that) and when I asked the store checker how she was, she paused and honestly said, “I don’t know.  It’s a weird time.”  She was a woman in her late 60’s and I wondered what she was worrying about; Her own health?  A loved ones health?  Whether she would have a job at the store if people were asked to socially isolate and no one was coming in?
This situation is even further unique in that it’s a collective worldwide experience.
So here we are.  We’re all in this together.  Aside from doing what you can do wash your hands frequently, disinfect your surroundings and possibly stock up some items in case social isolation is called for, there’s not much we can do other than do our best to work with our own personal anxieties.  This will not only be beneficial to YOU but to those you care about, especially if you have children.  Remember that emotions are also contagious.

If you think you need grand gestures to show your spouse love, you’re mistaken.  One of the secrets to long-lasting love is making small gestures such as leaving your partner an endearing love note or holding his or her hand during a conflict. These gestures help couples form a secure attachment and build trust and intimacy.
It’s especially important for remarried couples to find intentional time to express positive emotions and appreciation to each other due to the complexity of their lives. The demands of daily stepfamily life seem to leave little time or money left over for relaxed, fun activities. However, using small gestures and rituals such a six-second kiss, as they depart in the morning, can help couples solidify their bond.
One of the things that Clare, 43, values about Sam, 45, is his ability to show love through his actions. Married for over five years, Claire and Sam are raising four children, two teenage sons from Sam’s first marriage, and Claire’s two daughters, ages ten and eight, from her previous marriage.
Like many remarried couples, once the bliss of their new marriage wore off, Claire and Sam stopped spending intentional time together and started drifting apart emotionally and sexually.

“A great marriage is not when the ‘perfect couple’ come together. It is when an imperfect couple learns to enjoy their differences.” –Dave Meur There are far too many Christian marriages that are not real. What I mean by that is that they are not authentic or genuine and would never stand up to a closer examination…
