    The Universal Church Has No Earthly Organization...It Cannot Be Divided

    in Religion

    The church universal does have organization. What organization exists is spiritual in nature. CHRIST is the cornerstone, together with His apostles and prophets as the foundation.

    Choosing You - Caring for the Caregiver - Part 2

    in Motivation

    On today's show we will talk about caring for the caregiver. In Part 1 (on March 2) we talked about the basics of nutrition and ways to incease the feel good chemicals in our body with food. Eating well and balancing your blood sugar is essential for reducing stress, feeling well and keeping the stress hormone (cortisol) low. Today, we are going to go beyond the basics of nutrition and get into the mind-body connection and the power of our thoughts. You can choose to take care of you even if you have others to care for.

    "Another Fork in the Road" Jeannette Davidson-Mayer, Caregiver - Military Spouse

    in Education

    When Jeannette Davidson-Mayer’s husband, DeWayne, had five brain injuries - the result of his active duty in Iraq - Jeannette became his caregiver. To combat this 24-hour job, Jeannette redesigned her kitchen to become the family’s “Central Command Post."  Jeannette will discuss how she, DeWayne, and their daughter make this system work for them.


    Every TBI survivor and caregiver has encountered a fork in the road that has diverted his or her life-plan. A car accident, a fall from the roof, doing one more chin-up, an IED blast, or a door literally slamming one in the face are just some causes of traumatic brain injury. College, walking down the aisle in the perfect dress, or the coveted job quickly slips from reality as dreams turn to struggle. These unexpected life-happenings that divert one from his or her chosen path in life can be devastating.


    But as Yogi Berra once said, “If you come to a fork in the road, take it.” Life is all about choices!

    Inspiration Nation invites Mary Jane Cronin, author of A Caregiver Connection

    in Books

    Inspiration Nation welcomes fellow Tampa Bay writer, Mary Jane Cronin, author of A Caregiver Connection 


    With people living somuch longer these days, the result is often "longer not better" with ailments and limitations requiring someone to step in and help with personal care. Proving care and support to both mychildren and my parents with a little extra padding on the hips for goodmeasure.  A Caregiver Connection was created following my ten years working with hospice. Realizing that caregiver, both personal or family caregivers and professionals who work in the healthcarefield often ignore their own care and go into providing care with littlepreparation. This guidebook offers chapters on exploring your feelings as acaregiver, self-care, and types of care communities and how to get help at homewhen you are trying to do it all alone. 


    Mary Jane Cronin LMHC  founded Cronin Counseling and Coaching in the fall of 2014 to help fill a serious void in the mental health service field.  During her ten years of practice working with Suncoast Hospice, Mary Jane repeatedly observed that many caregivers and other adults encountered significant obstacles to accessing quality and consistent mental health care.  Recognized that many people are unable to visit a counseling office, they could however, be open to treatment in the comfort of their own homes. Offering services for elderly adults who are living in care communities or their family members who need support seemed like a logical solution.

    10 Things You MUST DoToBeAn Organized Caregiver,byOrganizingExpert,DebbyeCannon

    in Caregiving

    In the early 1980’s, I was caring for my 2 children (both under two years old, & in cloth diapers!) and life was absolutely eating me alive! I had the responsibilities of wife, mother, homemaker and I was endeavoring to run a substantial home-based business. I found that although my business was EXPLODING, my home life was IMPLODING! What WAS I thinking?


    By late afternoon, when I needed to be preparing dinner, I’d find myself collapsed in my kitchen from low blood sugar, surrounded by my little ones without a CLUE about what I could assemble for dinner. There would be pasta, but no sauce, meat frozen solid and no side dishes in my pantry. My house felt a mess. Laundry was piled high and the floors were so sticky I feared walking through the kitchen!


    I decided to create some shortcuts. I created a system for more than just surviving my life. Pretty soon I was actually thriving, and my friends noticed. By popular demand, I began teaching local workshop groups. The Butler family encouraged me to publish my system. The first edition was published in September of 1988, a second printing followed in January 1997 and a third edition in 2006.


    Prompted to share my systems and techniques, I have now become the SMARTcut® Expert. I am passionate about helping way past busy entrepreneurs especially Caregivers, who are struggling with the juggling. I hope my work will give you the time and energy to reach more of your personal dreams, serve your family, church and community in ways that really make a difference.
