    COVID-19 Money Matters

    COVID-19 Money Matters

    This COVID-19 situation is rough. Money problems are rough.
    So, when we consider financial issues during this coronavirus pandemic, that's rough on top of rough.
    It's a challenge – AND - there are graces, resources, and practices that can give some relief during this tough time.
    This Money Matters sharing contains 7 helps that may ease coronavirus-related financial burdens:
    Part 1: Receiving - two possible income sources for those that have lost work Part 2: Spending - three available graces that can reduce expenditures (one may bring a significant gain) Part 3: Nutrition - food resources for school-aged children out of school Part 4: Giving - encouragement about the importance of ‘living open’ - even when things feel closed and tight This episode contains audio from a video.  If you prefer, you can watch the (19-min) video here.

    Y’all, I've been broke-itty broke in my life before. And I know how hard it is.
    And we know right now some people, because of financial situations, are continuing to go out to work, continuing to put themselves at risk for COVID-19 exposure because they're trying to keep money coming in their household. They have bills to pay. They have kids to take care of etc.
    There are helps.
    Some of the helps shared may be reminders, others may be options not yet considered. I’m sharing this information with prayer that the steps and resources can help meet financial needs and ease money-related stresses.
    If you don't personally don’t have financial concerns at this time, praise God and share this information with others. We don't know what folks are going through.
    Too often people have needs, there are often available resources – and there's an information gap between the two. If we can help to bridge that gap, please, please, let’s do that.

    You take care.  God bless, be well, and stay well, physically, spiritually, mentally, emotionally, and financially.
    God loves you and so do I.
    😘 NJ

    Have you cried yet?

    Have you cried yet?

    If the coronavirus pandemic has you feeling some kinda way 🙋🏽‍♀️ - beloved, you are not alone.
    COVID-19 is impacting us all.
    The fallout from this virus hits more than physical health, it also brings economic, societal, institutional, spiritual, mental and emotional stressors.

    Emotions need release.
    Give yourself time, space and grace to acknowledge where you are. This acknowledgment can help you move forward.
    Today’s episode was recorded last week. It contains the audio from a video recorded while I was out on a needed walk. {If you prefer to watch the video instead of listening, click here.}
    This episode includes encouragement to check-in with yourself to see where you are emotionally, plus tips for emotional self-care. The end of the episode shares mental health resources to use or pass along if additional support is needed.
    I pray it is a help and blessing to you.
    Ya’ll, we will get through this. God is in control.

    New Year - New Decade

    New Year - New Decade

    Sometimes we need to take some time to be introspective.
    To think about where we've been,
    to listen to where God wants us to be,
    to go wholeheartedly when Holy spirit ushers us into praise,
    to listen attentively when we are convicted, challenged, inspired, or encouraged.
    A new year and new decade are almost upon us.
    An excellent time to ponder, praise, pray, and plan.
    Listen in for three questions and one word to guide introspection that can help you enter into 2020 with clarity, confidence, and courage.

    [Bonus Episode] Fast Before The Feast

    [Bonus Episode] Fast Before The Feast

    It's a few days before Thanksgiving - a time of year full of celebrations with family and food.
    Before the prolonged period of eat-festing begins, I'm led to share an episode about fasting.
    Hang with me here…
    The end of the year season is celebratory, but it can also be difficult for those that have experienced loss or are currently experiencing lack.
    Going into this new year, some may want or need to leave some things behind in this decade and to step into 2020 with boldness and a clear vision of what is to come.
    Some may need strength or movement comfort or clarity, courage, or earnestly desire a more intimate relationship with God.
    Fasting can minister to these and other needs.
    Christian fasting is prayerful abstinence from food and or/drink for spiritual purposes.
    While it involves food, it's about much more than food.
    In the Bible, we see that fasting is not a command; it is a choice - one that can bring beautiful, powerful blessings.
    Intricately connected with prayer, fasting deepens our connection to God.
    This bonus episode shares resources, information, and inspiration that I pray will be helpful and supportive to you if you choose to take on this spiritual discipline.

    Glorious!

    Passion, Purpose, and the Power of Kindness with Heather Eason

    Passion, Purpose, and the Power of Kindness with Heather Eason

    “Wherever there is a human in need, there is an opportunity for kindness and to make a difference.” ~ Kevin Heath
    Kindness calls for people to look out, to reach out, to show care and support for one another. 
    This episode of the Faith Applied podcast with Heather Eason explores kindness and the beauty of rising to meet needs.
    Heather is the founder of Comeback Coolers, a nonprofit organization that delivers much needed and much deserved breaks to people that are out in rescue or recovery disasters. Comeback Coolers connects people that care with people that need care. The connections endure, and the acts of kindness, multiply and expand. 

    Image source: facebook.com/pg/comebackcoolers/photos
    Re the genesis and growth of Comeback Coolers - Heather shares:
    Comeback Coolers came out of an experience I had from Hurricane Katrina. I was in the house when the waters came in, and I thought my husband was going to die because the water closed the door to the bedroom and he couldn't escape. He was pushing, and I was pulling, and I made the decision that I had to save my son. As soon as I took my hands off the door, the entire door casing came down, and we were swept in a wave toward our living room. We made it up the stairs, and when the eye came over us, we fled to my best friend's house. God saved us, but our marriage did not survive for much longer.  

    For me, Katrina changed my mindset about what was important, and it really upped my desire to be helpful. Suddenly, the material things weren't near as important. As a former teacher, I also recognize the need for children to get involved in giving and helping so they will turn into adults with the same mindset.  
    The blessings my team and I receive from Comeback Coolers are far greater than what seems fair. I'm constantly given new friends, stories of impact, and a whole lot of love. Really, the gifts we give are returned in the form of tremendous love and God shows up in a big way each and every time. 
     
    Key Explorations In This Episode Include:
    Beauty and bounty can come from loss, and disaster can change life for the better With God's Hand, little things have a huge impact  Important reminders that everyone has something to give A powerful example of multi-generational outreach The value of a singular mission and diverse gifts on a team
    Listen in and be inspired.

kt nors ,

Wonderful!!

WOW! I just listened to two episodes back to back can say is WOW!!! They were AMAZING!! First off, I love Nettye’s voice!!! It is so soothing and warm, and I think I could listen to her all day 🙂 Secondly I LOVE LOVE LOVE how she mixes PRACTICAL living with THE WORD of God. Theologically accurate, and spot on how to apply it to your life. Can't wait to listen to more 🙂

inspired prissy ,

Steady and Steadfast!

I listened to Nettye Johnson’s first podcast that deals with our desires to start something and the what, when, and why of the process to be able to successfully complete and accomplish our goals. The tips and testimonials Nettye offers and shares with us are realistic, relative, and offers an opportunity for a response in achieving your goals and fulfilling Christ-centered purposes. This podcast is a powerful and instrumental tool needed to help guide and empower individuals to be prayerful, consistent, and steady on our spiritual, professional, and personal journey. “We are what we repeat.” (Nettye Johnson)

Lazard, P. ,

Sooooo Relatable!!

This podcast was very inspiring! I love how you break everything down into small steps which makes setting goals seem more attainable!! “NOT EASY” but like you said, “IT’S POSSIBLE”! Specifically, permanent weight loss goals. I’m looking forward to more simple yet profound tips on sticking with what I’m starting. Keep them coming!
