“We become the ‘tapes’ we most often play about ourselves” – AJ SWOBODA

Reframing – the process of shifting your perspective by replacing negative or flawed thought patterns with more realistic and positive ones.

Reframing doesn’t change the circumstance, but it helps you see the bigger picture.

Good News changes your prayer life.

“It has been found that 12 minutes of daily focused prayer over an 8 week period can change the brain to such an extent that it can be measured on a brain scan. This type of prayer increases activity in brain areas associated with social interaction, compassion, and sensitivity to others. It also increases frontal lobe activity as focus and intentionality increase.” – Dr. Caroline Leaf (communication pathologist and cognitive neuroscientist)
