Topic: Stress Reduction



Thought to Ponder: Our stresses melt away when we choose to put our trust in God. Keep Him at the forefront of your mind. Run to Him when life seems too much to handle.


Journaling Activity: Choose one word that represents the absence of stress. (Ex. Peace, Calm, Rest). Compose a poem using your word. You can write a Haiku or an Alpha Poem. With an Alpha Poem, each letter of your word represents the next line in your poem.

Alpha Poem Example:
