So, if you want to prevent temper tantrums and tears this festive period, then its … [Read more...]

Christie Marie Sheldon, ‘…Gift of seeing your Energy Vibrations’

I'm sure you have a picture in your mind of the reality that you wish to live in - the career that drives and motivates you, the loving relationships, the sense of fulfillment that comes with truly believing in yourself...

These barriers are subtly ingrained into us after any experience, but more often than not are based on … [Read more...]

Gratitude, 6 ways to develop new attitude – WOMEN in RECOVERY

6 Creative Ways to Develop Gratitude With the busy lives most of us lead, expressions of thanksgiving to God may seldom occur outside of mealtime prayers.

Gratitude, a Rare Commodity

When was the last time you said “thank you”? When was the last time you genuinely meant it?

On these days, KEEP IT SIMPLE, … [Read more...]
