It's that special time of year again... Autumn!! Or as most of us like to call it, FALL!!! I simply LOVE the Fall season! Some of things I love most is the cool crisp air,warm sweaters, cute boots, the beautiful colors of the changing trees and the sweet smell of pumpkin and spice just about everywhere you go! However, I see that during this time of the year as the skies get cloudy and the air gets cooler, some people find themselves sinking down into a state of depression. Can I encourage you for just a moment? You be the one who dictates how you feel, not the weather. If you find yourself starting to feel groggy and depressed as the seasons change, you need to find a hobby or SOMETHING that aids in lifting your spirit. Figure out what types of things make you happy. What types of things make you smile. Writing in a journal perhaps, sewing, cooking, reading...just to name a few. Often times what happens to your mood has nothing to do with the actual weather, its more internal or mental. During the Summer months, the sun is shinning, the birds are singing and there are lots of activities to do in an around your city. As the season changes into fall people find themselves not as active or "happy". Get up and get active! Do something! Exercise is actually a great way to get your blood moving, and studies show that exercise actually has a huge affect on your mood and mental health. It's a great stress reliever. Now, from a more spiritual standpoint, I encourage you to do like the apostle Paul says in the word of God... think on things that are true, honest, just and pure (Philippians 4:8). If you can change your thoughts, you have the ability to change your day and your life! Paul, the apostle also writes in the book of Philippians 4:6- that we should be careful or anxious for NOTHING: but rather in everything we should be praying and giving thanks to God and making our requests known to God. He goes on to tell us that the God of peace which passes all understanding, will keep our hearts AND minds through Christ Jesus. Keep your focus precious mom and ENJOY this season.

**This is NOT a faith based music class** Kids LOVE music!! Music brings joy, peace, comfort, entertainment, learning and so much more to people of ALL AGES! This is why music and movement are a crucial part of every child's life. The benefits of music are truly transformational when paired with play and movement. So what are you waiting for! Join in on the FUN!!! The practice of making music gives the brain and body a complete workout. Our activities are designed to encourage multi-sensory learning, which integrates several senses at once, stimulating multiple areas of the brain! Children interact with you as the parent, the teacher and other peers while being engaged in movement, rhythm and vocal practice that develops far more than just music skills. Our approach to learning music and sound sets up children for future success in school and in life. The Sing With Me Toddler Music Class is designed for children ages 1-5, although older or younger siblings may enjoy t
With everything happening in the world these days it's easy to find yourself being worried about raising your children and them growing up in a world filled with so much hatred, violence and an evident lack of genuine love. The way we view the world now, as mothers, is probably much different than we have ever viewed the world around us. Did anyone else view the world and things differently after becoming a mother? Now, instead of just you to think about you have a whole other life form (or in some cases multiple ones) to think about! I mean that's a tall order, you are responsible for another life! As if being responsible for your own wasn't difficult enough. You now have a new generation of other people to think about and that's deep. Then add on everything we have seen and experienced in the last year and the last few days going into the new year and well, my heart just crushes a bit thinking about the future for our little ones. BUT.... When I cast my human flesh
