How to Control Your Emotions Week 2

Welcome back for Week 2 of How to Control Your Emotions So They Don't Control You (a mom's guide to overcoming)

This week we are reading Chapter 2 How To Overcome Lies With the Truth. I have to tell you I cried as I read Brooke's heartbreaking recollection of her miscarriage at the beach. In that story, she reminds us all of the hope we have in finding good things in all situations if we take the time to look for them. 

I think all of us moms get caught in the trap of focusing on all the negative so much so that we forget all that our sons are doing that is good.

This week as you read through Chapter 2, I want to challenge you to focus on what your son(s) is doing that is good. Link up your blog post or comments here on Friday telling me all about it! If we're busy focusing on the good this week, hopefully we can better handle our emotions when the rough spots happen.

Knowing what God's Word says about this will be instrumental to us as we seek to complete this week's challenge and in learning the "Feel, Know, Do" method. The Bible is our source of truth that can change the way we feel as we look at our circumstances through its lens. 

Let's use this verse from Romans 8:6 that Brooke quotes in Chapter 2 as we seek to focus on the good about our sons this week:

"For to set the mind on the flesh is death, 
but to set the mind on the Spirit is life and peace."

I'll see you back here on Friday for our blog link-up party where we'll share our thoughts about this chapter and how we did in our challenge for this week. Remember, it's okay if you don't have a blog - I invite you to share too in the comments section of Friday's post!

Overcoming with the Truth,
