June Theme: Plan for Success
Friends, we have several significant holidays in June for widows and their families. One way we can serve and empower this new chapter can be summed up this way…
3 June Secret Sauce Empowerment Steps:
1. Plan Ahead: Make positive plans in advance for challenging days this month, such as Father’s Day.
2. Give Back: Giving to others can help us feel better faster. Focus as a family on helping someone and you may just find unexpected joy!
3. Get Moving: Exercising together as a family can help our brains rest from grief, can help our minds heal from trauma, and get the good endorphins flowing!
Let’s be intentional together to exercise, talk, and create fun new summer memories and self-care rhythms.
Dates to Remember:
Memorial Day May 30th: Bless a Widowed Military Family Father’s Day June 19th: Bless a Widowed Family on this Sensitive Day.
