It is with great anticipation that we are introducing to you the
Peace Plus Program. It doesn't matter how bad your symptoms of
anxiety or depression are, they can all be resolved when you begin
responding to your life's challenges in the proper way.
However, we know that as you aim yourself at resolving past
conflicts in your life, that 'life' is going to present road blocks
in your path to prevent you from helping yourself get well. That is
why we ask to speak with you everyday so that we can help you
recognize when these road blocks are coming into play, and then help
you to maneuver around them so that you can maintain a steady
working of the program each day.
Getting The Necessary Tools
May we also suggest you keep track of your progress using the
Accountability Sheet. By no means is happiness wrapped up in do's
and don't's, however, during recovery, purposely continually doing
positive things, will make a difference as to how soon you recover.
That is why we've put together this list of suggested activities. It
is in chart form so it's easy to keep track of. Here is the link to it:
Another helpful tool to keep a daily journal to list all of the
victories you score in your day-to-day life. After a week go back
and praise God for all the good things you were able to accomplish.
Then on Monday, do it all over again! So obtain a journal.
Daily Bible Reading
May we suggest you begin a new daily habit of reading God's Word. We
recommend you begin a habit of meeting with God every day at the
same time for 30 minutes or so. And that you read a Bible (an easy
to understand version, the NIV (New International Version), or the
New King James Version is good. A good place to start reading the
Bible is in the New Testament beginning with the Gospels.
factor in obtaining a speedy recovery is the area of friendships.
Quite often depression is caused by a lack of meaningful
relationships in our lives. Not only can a lack of friendships cause
depression but a lack of trustworthy mentors in our lives can cause
us to stumble needlessly in life. Mentors are people who we believe
are strong in their own identity, wise in the area of life's
challenges and caring in their willingness to sit and listen to you
explain your problems. May we suggest you find 1 or 2 people who can
mentor you when life gets difficult. The Bible says that "in a multitude of counselors there is safety."* A good place to find new
friends and mentors is in a good local church. If you wish, you
contact us and we will find a good local church.
Once you've gathered
your 'tools', send us an
email, and we can proceed to Day 2.
