The Back to School Game Plan
by Terri Bonin
I know all you mommies are in the full swing of getting your kids back to school. Whether it be homeschooling, private, or public school, we’ve all got a routine that we’ve jumped back into and are in full throttle with schooling and life! For us, it looks like a lot of things.
Even though I’ve homeschooled all my children, they all have been very involved in outside activities. From sports to choir, to dance, you name it, one of my kids has probably done it. One of my goals as a mommy has been to always try my very best to fortify my kids with all they need in regards to health and wellness. At the very top of that list is…
I want to always be praying intentionally for my children. I know that no matter what I say, do, or give them, the Lord has his hand on their lives and is the one protecting my babies. A next big priority is supply. I want my kiddos to be supplied with all that they need so that wherever they go, their little bodies can stay at the top of their game.
Here’s the game plan for our upcoming school year, and no matter how different it looks for you this year, rest assured this game plan will help you support your family!
Thieves hand purifier: this stuff is a must for going ANYWHERE. It not only helps protect against germs, but it also supports my kids’ immune system while doing so. This was such an easy switch out for me. I simply stopped buying normal hand sanitizer—you know, the kind designed to put your body into toxic overload—and started giving them thieves instead. It doesn’t break the bank and it’s better for your wellness in the long run.
Peace and Calming Roll-on: if you have kiddos that are more prone to feeling strong emotions or becoming overwhelmed easily, this is the stuff for you. My kids know that when they’re starting to feel strong things that they can’t explain, rolling this oil on their wrists and simply breathing it in can help calm their nerves tremendously. When an oil is applied topically, it takes about 26 seconds to hit the bloodstream. Meaning, when my babies are out and about and I’m not with them, they have the tools they need to calm any angst and guide them down a path of a healthy emotional life.
Breathe Again: This one calms my kids when they feel anxious and they begin to get short of breath! I didn’t think of using this one for anxiety, my daughter is the one who told me it’s her go-to when she feels afraid! Who knew? Now I make sure it’s in the bag!
Thieves roller: Even though they are armed with the hand purifier, I like them to have the roller in case they begin to feel bad. it is such a boost to their systems!
NingXia Red: This one gives my kids the extra antioxidants they need to stay well, fiber to help them poop, eye support, pancreas support… total immune support. #WIN
This is not an exhaustive list. Of course, every child of mine is different, so their needs are going to be different in regards to what I send them out with. What’s listed above are some pretty generic things that I think every child should have with them wherever they go. This is what the Lord placed on my heart years ago as a dream and passion for my family. And I want to continue walking prayerfully as He every day reveals to me how He wants me to shepherd my children
