What Doesn't Break Me will Mold Me

“What doesn’t break me will mold me,” is a thought I had the other day while having a calming moment with our Heavenly Father in prayer, meditation, and exercise. Because we’re all trying to get through this Coronavirus pandemic #AloneTogether, global tensions, inflation, and personal problems, I want to share this moment with you.

Happy thoughts and positive thinking will help each of us get through any time of concern we may face from time to time. That’s why, from time to time, on Saturday mornings, I will offer affirmations by providing positive quotes, words of encouragement, Bible verses, fun videos, and anything else that may make you smile or feel less anxious.

Strength from God

God has given women the grace to get through trials that come their way. Those trials can burden us if we let them, or we can let them mold us into what God wants us to become. Strength comes from persevering through tough times. Therefore, this strength we’re building will help us turn from being worriers in the world to being warriors for Christ.

I don’t want you to feel doom and gloom nor hopeless and beaten. So, let’s work on our future and leave the rest to God and his perfect timing. This inspirational NIV Bible verse from Jeremiah 29:11 goes well with the quote today. “I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.” 

New Adventures

There’s plenty we can do while we’re waiting through this pandemic! In fact, we don’t have to muddle through this. Below are a few ideas to keep us busy.

  • Spend at least 20 minutes outside every day when the weather is good
  • Try a new craft
  • Start a journal
  • Clean out closets, cabinets, and drawers
  • Read a book

Better yet, let’s spend precious time with our family: dust off the board games, have daily family Bible readings, take nature walks in the backyard.

I’m going to be sharing lots of health and wellness tips, recipes, and craft projects with you too! Therefore, my promise to you is that you won’t have time to think about problems, because we have a future to mold!

Let's Talk Simple!

My Simple Dream For years, I have had a simple dream of helping other women - mostly in the realm of crafting and transcribing audio and video files. As a woman who is advancing in years - and I'm proud of it - I want to expand that help in other areas. In 2020, at the height of the COVID 19 pandemic, I started www.SimplyMakingLife.com . Suddenly, women were being thrown into a world they were unfamiliar with and didn't have a clue how to handle their new life.  I, on the other hand, was well equipped to handle that type of world that had to shelter at home. I was a stay-at-home mom for over 20 years. I homeschooled both of my sons during that time - one for only a few years and the other from Kindergarten through high school. I worked from home and figured out what was important to do at the moment and what could wait. I have also taken online courses and have self-taught myself new skills along this, now, 30-year journey. I learned shortcuts in life that worked just as well a
