Michael and Amy, may God bless you with many more years of love and joy.
So so miss your podcasts/Facebook live casts!!! I know y’all are busy doing great things for God, but know you’re missed!
Love the pics, but having Smalley Radio withdrawals! Lol!
Ok guys. Missing you all! Hope everything & everyone are okay!
Husband and wife tested, baby approved. #smallgroup #pursueoneness
Mike you need a shirt that says: Sarcasm is another service I offer.
Disappointment, failure, defeat, and heartbreak happen. So what the heck do people have who consistently get back up again and find new ways to be satisfied in life? That thing is one word, and it is... resilience. Today you’re going to discover how to add a little resilience to your life at the beginning of 2019.
I have been listening to your pod casts as I commute to work every day! Love your sense of humor and all the good information! My husband and I took your animal personality test and it sure explained a lot! I am a purebred Golden Retriever married to a Lion. We have just hit the empty nest stage of life with some mid life crisis thrown in there too. Would love to hear a pod cast on how to cope with this season of life! This Golden Retriever is just finding her voice! LOL
Is it really the only thing left? Statement #16 from Jesus is something you want to be doing constantly:
I don't know if you ever mess up like I do when it comes to statement #16 from Jesus, but is it really the last option?
If someone is not being loving to you...what's Jesus' solution? It's radical and you might not like it, but it is one of the secrets to finding fulfillment and joy:

Awwwwwwww. I needed this pick-me-up today.

A baby elephant is stuck upside down in a gutter, while a pride of lions are closing in...

The empathy of elephants never ceases to amaze me! 🙏

[03/20/20]   Out of curiosity, how isolated is everyone right now?

1) Not at all. Living normal. 😳
2) Being cautious, but still going out. 😬
3) Going out as needed, mostly staying/working from home, still seeing friends and family. 😎
4) Very limited, only going out when unavoidable and very careful contact with people 🤐
5) Full lockdown - no one in or out. 😷

[03/17/20]   Are schools closed where you are? For how long? Let us know - location too!

Just as you are, we are watching the world around us and trying to adjust to the ever changing situation. We have couples scheduled for intensives and they are worried about travel restrictions and coming into contact with the Corona-virus. We are also hearing an outcry of fears about the economy, job security, and the cost of the intensive program. We have spent the last few days developing something to answer these problems.

We have modified our 1, 2, and 3-day Intensives to be done virtually. You will be able to attend a full intensive - from the safety of your home, using your computer or phone. We are trying to meet our couples where they are - using Skype, Zoom and Face-time. The format of the intensive will remain the same - it will be private, just you and your spouse with your coach. We have GREATLY reduced the fees in an effort to help our couples during this crisis. This opportunity will only be available until we can return to business as usual. *Coach availability may be limited.

If you would like more information on this new program, Please reply to this email (we promise to check it), or call/text us today (800) 975-8748.

Bible found unharmed after truck engulfed in flames

Wow!!!! A Bible was left sitting on top of the carnage, sustaining only minor damage on the back cover and a bit of water on the pages.

Don’t forget to Spring forward tonight!

Her View From Home

Oh man!

Wow. Guys. This is powerful.

“I’ve got it,” I blurted out loudly, as heat flooded my face.

The store was empty, there was no one else in our line, and I watched this man slowly turn, his jaw dropped open.

I turned to the cashier.

“Please put everything back. I’ll get it all.”

“Are you sure?” the cashier said, with shock in her voice.

I nodded while looking at the girl and the boy. Their eyes were like saucers.

“Yes, absolutely. I can go ahead and swipe my card.”

I look at the dad. He’s crying now.

The stock marketing is taking a dive and COVID-19 is spreading. It’s easy to get caught in the panic. Panic has never made anything better. It doesn’t feel good internally, it doesn’t help us think clearly, and it doesn’t have the power to change anything. When you find your thoughts ruminating on one topic that sends you into anxiety, it’s important to take control.

There’s another approach when bad things are happening and that’s to ignore them completely. I like to think of this as sticking your head in the sand and pretending everything’s fine. You are completely disconnecting from reality and it’s not a healthy response either.

We have panic on one end and ignoring on the other. The best place to be is somewhere in the middle. You are aware of what’s happening but not owned by it. You prepare as you can without going overboard. Don’t spend all day watching the news or reading everything you can get your hands on. Check on things now and then, but spend most of your day doing what you used to do like work, study, be with friends and family, read something enjoyable, go for a walk, prepare and eat meals, clean, shower, sleep. In general, take care of yourself and don’t get swept up in the panic.

Have you heard the phrase “Running around like a chicken with its head cut off”? When I was young I had friends who lived on a farm. One time when I was there they butchered a chicken for dinner. They chopped its head off and it ran around for awhile without any direction what so ever. It’s a visual of panic. We’re running around in a frenzy but the rational part of our brain is not engaged. We are controlled purely by the emotional part.

Put your head back on. It’s really hard and sometimes impossible to do on your own when you reach full panic mode. It’s best not to let yourself get there. Start practicing now. When it comes to things that are not completely within your power to stop, find out what you can do that is healthy, legal and wise. Take time periodically throughout your day to breathe deeply a few times. With each exhale feel the tension in your muscles loosen. This will allow more oxygen to get to your brain so you can think more clearly and stay away from panic.

Photo of dog keeping boy company during time-out goes viral

Oh man, Did y'all see this? How adorable is that. “I couldn't be mad long because it was just so cute how Peyton wrapped his arm around Dash. When Peyton had to go to time-out, I think Dash knew he needed his buddy.”

Submission looks much less scary these days... For empowered women of today submission seems like a dirty word. Freedom can come when we recognize it’s not up to us to do it all! We don’t have to be the Holy Spirit- we need to step back and allow God to his part. How would your life be different if you said to yourself “God I submit to You, do what only you can do!”
