Calm Down

Are you friends ready for some weekly Calm? I know I am!

First up we have my friend Amy :) She wrote a book that came out this Fall and it is fabulous. If you are a mom, you really need to read it. It will encourage you and point you to what Christ can do in your motherhood, not what you can do for yourself. It's called Chin Up and you can go buy it here (aff link)!

You can also follow Amy on Instagram here, and Facebook here.

Now, for the good stuff.

Calm Down: by Amy Seiffert

Carefully, ever so slowly, draw a long breath in.

And then exhale just as deliberately as you can.

Good work.

When was the last time you did that?
When was the last time you paid attention to your incoming breath and your outgoing air?
The last time you noticed what was coming in and what was going out?

And let’s not just stick to the air around you. Let’s get below the surface. Let’s look at the content of our souls.

What have we allowed to take up residence, and now, like the air we breathe, freely comes and goes?

Because the company you keep, most often keeps you.

Be sure to come back next week for another dose of Calm!
