Have a Joyful Christmas

As I reflect back on a year of sharing the story my life with you, I feel blessed to have you on this journey with me and my family.

It has been a year of transitions and trusting God in the midst of the unknown while waiting for our home to sell. It has been a year of growth for me with lots of practice turning to the Lord for peace when I feel out of control and overwhelmed. It has been a year of joy as my husband and I have watched our sons continue to grow in body and mind. We have delighted to see them developing the skills needed to build thriving relationships.

In sharing this journey with you I have noticed an increased awareness for the need to use relational skills in our daily lives. I am now more intentional than ever before. Thank you for your encouragement and comments!

My prayer is for your Christmas to be filled with the joy of celebrating our Savior’s birth! Merry Christmas from our family to yours.

    Thank you Jen and chris! We met at a peoria thrive training in 2012. We re so glad our immaturity, scant relational skills and mask wearing didn’t stop you from being glad to be with us and faithfully modeling for us what we were lacking. I’m still amazed at the way your team designed the logical training exercises that still are benefitting us and those we re now training. It is a new day for our family! Blessings ~ pam (and dana)

    I called Sandy to find out if there is any Thrive Training in Michigan, and she told me about the July-August conference in Holland. And she gave me the info about your blog. I am looking forward to reading more from you. Thank you so much.
    I was given the book, Living From The Heart Jesus Gave You, by a friend. She went to Greece with me in November, and I have two Iranian refugees living in my apartment there. She shared some sessions with this Persian mother and son and me. I really want to learn more.
    I was a missionary in Papua New Guinea for 25 years, beginning there as a 13yo with my parents and brothers.
    Thank you for putting me on your list to receive your blog.
