Fighting for Peace: How to Connect in a Divisive Culture.

The distractions we currently face in our culture are those of intentionality, in my opinion, by something that wants to scatter us, confuse us, and isolate us from one another. The most growing, nurturing thing this world has to offer us is community with one another; but in the past few years, I’d assume we can all agree that our families and friendships have felt broken apart in some way, by difference of opinion. I continue to see heavy hearts in people of all ages and dynamics, who feel hurt and disconnected— like someone placed a thick glass divider between them and multiple people who they love, but who have a different point of view.

FFP: Anxiety and your Diet

  Multiple variables in our lives add up to causing or making worse our mental health-and if anyone knows how interrelated mental and physical health can be, it’s me. The last year of my life has been filled with life-or-death changes and decisions for my health, including changes in my thought life, my family life, my work life, my lifestyle and my diet. Diet plays SUCH an incredibly important role in our mental health, because of how our bodies respond to or digest the food we eat. There are foods that can make anxiety far worse, and there are foods that can drastically help our brains to heal. Our gut (which is for some weird reason a buzz word right...
