We hit the ground running each morning!
We work tirelessly everyday taking care of the needs of our family!
Laundry is forever a chore that is never finished!
Mealtime again? Why does everyone have to eat all the time?
Bills need to be paid!
Junk needs to be tossed!
There is not enough time in the day to get it all done!
So how can we avoid burnout when life can be hectic and threatens to take us out?
There is one answer.
One key component that will prevent any of us from:
~ getting burned out
~ getting frustrated
~ throwing in the towel
BEING OTHERS FOCUSED!
“Intentionally adding value to others today will bring you fulfillment everyday.” John Maxwell
When we intentionally add value into other people’s lives ~ we are fulfilled!
Be devoted to one another in love. Honor one another above yourselves. Romans 12:10
All of you be harmonious, sympathetic, brotherly, kindhearted, and humble in spirit. 1 Peter 3:8
Be intentional to seek ways to add value to everyone, not just those closest to us. It helps us not to see others as obstacles that must be conquered.
It not only prevents us from crashing and burning, it also blesses others and honors God!

Finding out that their food allergies, and autoimmune disorders, Type 1 Diabetes and Celiac’s disease, are all gut imbalance issues made me diligent with adding probiotics, yeast killers, digestive enzymes and papaya tablets to our supplement routine. But most of their symptoms are brain related. Since I thought we were treating their gut issues affectively, I read 4 brain imbalance books last summer, written by doctors and psychologists, to help me with other symptoms we were dealing with. I found that their brain problems were actually gut problems! ADHD, ADD, ODD, sleep problems, behavior problems, memory problems, difficulty in school, difficulty talking, moodiness, hormone imbalance etc. are all reasons why I was pulling my hair out trying to figure out how to ease some of these symptoms. I found the answer:
