How To Care For The Soul
This month, we’ve got lots of goodies on Care for the Soul for our members and email list!
As restrictions slowly lift, some of us may find ourselves feeling the full effect of helping our tribes through a global pandemic. If you need some personal encouragement or ideas on how to step away, we created a podcast series called Time To Rest. We are also giving our email list a piece on Spiritual Identity from DrEdLaymance.com.
For our membership, we divided it into three sections: physical, emotional, and spiritual. Church leaders share with us how parents struggle with time management resulting in physical exhaustion. So we took a unique approach and introduced a simple concept of managing time into the membership parent videos. We also give parents a creative approach to understanding emotionally healthy discussions with Conversation Prompts. Last, we offer a beautiful, graphic-designed Spiritual Identity piece called Child of the King in a poster format.
As always, it’s a privilege to partner with you.

Time Management: 3 Ways to Manage Time
After high school, teenagers will be in total control of their schedule, and for some parents, that may excite them. Others not so much. Either way, you can help parents prepare by learning three ways to help teens manage time.
Some people may think that children are too young to learn how to manage time, but what if we started introducing the concept through practical and concrete ways, such as school and playtime. In this video, you can give parents three ways to use a child’s everyday world to introduce “time management concepts.”
Say This, Not That: Conversation Prompts That Help Parents During Difficult Times (Kids & Youth Edition)
Say This, Not That is a quick, non-threatening, and simple guide to inspire parents to have emotionally healthy discussions around difficult subjects they face as adults. Sometimes all parents need is a small prompt in the right direction to get the conversation going.
Our upcoming partner resource is Dr. Ed Laymance, a licensed professional counselor, a licensed marriage and family therapist, and a board-certified professional Christian counselor with over more than 40 years of ministry, education, and counseling experience.
Members will receive a beautiful, graphic-designed CHILD OF THE KING proclamation of our spiritual identity in a poster format of 18×24 or a handout 8×10 to email families or print and hang them in the hallways at church…or print one for the office as a reminder. 🙂
