Action for You
Invite someone along
Have you noticed that not everyone is back yet?
Post-Covid hesitancy is a thing. Maybe it’s because people are reluctant to move out of their houses and safe spaces. Or maybe we got used to managing on our own.
Whatever the reason, it’s true to say we all need each other. Being part of a community is critical to good mental and emotional health.
Whether or not you are wary about getting back into circulation, why not ask a friend to come with you? That could be as simple as going for a walk together on the beach, grabbing a coffee at a local café, or heading off to the gym or church together.
Or maybe you could invite someone to one of the EmpowHer events lined up in your region.
It’s a good time to be the blessing!
It’s so easy to think up your own answer to a problem. Instead, remember to listen for God’s still, quiet voice.
By Jenny Baxter
Too many people and not enough food!
How many times have you been caught in that situation? I have to admit, I’ve been there a few times. Tiny servings of apple crumble, and thinned-down pumpkin soup have featured on my table, much to my horror.
