Happy Valentine's Day my friends. 🩷

Let's talk about love.

Love is why we’re here.

Love is who we are.

Love is what our best days are built on.

And all we really leave behind.

If we could lift up off the earth, and see as the angels see, all we would see is the light of our love. 🩷

So let's be the kindness that reminds someone that there's still plenty of love in the world.

I'm sending you so much love, Valentines. 🩷

* May our prayers rise together for those who need the power of love today.

January 2024 Blessings with so much love. 💛

Thank you, January, for welcoming us to the threshold of a pilgrimage.

We begin by blessing the year that is done:

May we remember the gifts and the wild grace amidst the challenges and losses.

And we bless the year to come:

May we surround this new year with possibility and promise.

May we grow together on the pilgrimage of this year in gratitude for what is and hope for what will be.

May this year open your heart in new ways, shine light in new places, and hold love beyond your wildest dreams. 💛.....
What a blessing it has been for me to walk with you on the road of becoming more loving, more self-compassionate, more joyful, more able to bear our burdens, more willing to be instruments of peace in the world.

Let's keep walking - and becoming who we really are. 💛..............

Today marks the solstice and the beginning of a little more light each day in the Northern Hemisphere. 💙

The traditions of the season rise from stories of great Light and Love that permeate all darkness and fear.

At this time of the year, we celebrate a new dawn, birth, rebirth, blessings and miracles.

Even amidst the challenge and suffering that we are witnessing or experiencing, there is a possibility of hope. 💙

Have faith that from darkness will grow new life from seed to bloom.

Tomorrow there will be more light.

And the next day, more light. ✨

May the longest night of darkness bring rest and rebirth.

May the growing sun of daylight bring hope and new beginnings. 💙

It matters. You matter.

Your love matters. ❤️

Supporting your partner through difficult moments starts with making them feel seen and heard. ⁠

Dr. John Gottman discovered that couples who remained close over time were good at listening to each other’s stresses. One way to do this is by regularly have a Stress-Reducing Conversation. ⁠

Take about 30 minutes daily or weekly to discuss things from outside the relationship that may be causing each of you stress or hurt. Spend half the time listening to your partner’s feelings and half sharing your own. This isn’t the time to come up with solutions for one another or talk about things within the relationship that are upsetting you. Instead, offer empathy and understanding. ⁠

It’s not a matter of “should you argue” but “how you argue.” Modeling healthy conflict means approaching conflict as an opportunity to understand, brainstorm, and agree together. The result may not be the exact outcome you wanted, but it's about regulating conflict instead of resolving it.

Melissa Benaroya, MSW, LICSW (Childproof Parenting - Melissa Benaroya)shares tips about arguing with your partner & if you have kids, the influence this could have on them. Read it here: https://bit.ly/3Ll7E5z

TONIGHT the "Peace After Divorce" program begins in Springfield.
Lauren Geraghty, the lead pastor at Springfield UMC, told us about this wonderful program that Westwood Baptist is offering. The program is full of love, not judgment.
It begins TONIGHT at 7 pm so if you're interested, please contact the facilitator as soon as possible! Her name is Susan and her email is [email protected]
This is what Susan shared about the program:
"Coping with the loss of your marriage and rediscovering joy in life is on the horizon—and this curriculum paves the way. Peace after Divorce offers a grace-filled, uplifting experience that promotes real action toward personal growth and healing. This is much more than a divorce support group. Participants are empowered to take practical steps, find hope, have faith, and feel better in the midst of trauma and all the emotions divorce brings.
The book on which the discussions will be based is very much focused on addressing the emotional trauma of divorce and the grace those in the midst of it (or its aftermath) should grant themselves, as well as their former partners.
As a divorced mom with my share of battle scars, I found this book much more realistic in terms of the trauma piece, and kind, i.e., grace-filled, than other options I considered that were more "you did a bad thing, but God loves you anyway" in tone. Others I considered also tended to sweep the trauma and pain under the rug and focus on how divorced people have disappointed God and broken the rules, which is not a perspective I (or our senior pastor) would endorse."

Our Story

Relationships can be challenging. Families sometimes have problems. Professional Family Mediators can help.

Is there a lot of conflict, anger, or pain in your family? Are you contemplating separation or divorce? Through mediation, where discussions are private and confidential, we help people talk with each other constructively to develop agreements about how the members of the family can move forward. With this peace-building approach, most of our clients are able to stay out of court. They avoid a lot of stress, emotional damage, and financial damage. They build foundations for secure, healthy lives.
