Creating Moments of JOY

Creating Moments of JOY
by Jolene Brackey

Jolene Brackey has a vision: that we will soon look beyond the challenges of Alzheimer’s disease to focus more of our energies on creating moments of joy.

When people have short-term memory loss, their lives are made up of moments.
We are not able to create perfectly wonderful days for people with dementia or Alzheimer’s, but we can create perfectly wonderful moments, moments that put a smile on their faces and a twinkle in their eyes. Five minutes later, they will not remember what we did or said, but the feeling that we left them with will linger.

The new edition of Creating Moments of Joy is filled with more practical advice sprinkled with hope, encouragement, new stories, and generous helpings of humor.

In this volume, Brackey reveals that our greatest teacher is having cared for and loved someone with Alzheimer’s and that often what we have most to learn about is ourselves.

This is a wonderful resource for anyone caring for someone with Alzheimer’s. We have been gifted several copies for use by our members. Please see Judy Oguich if you would like a copy.

Lenten Easter Mission Offering

Lenten Easter Mission Offering

April is here. April is hope. April nudges us away from the madness of March. That tussle between a departing winter and restless spring are on the horizon. This means, we inch further into Lent. Easter is closing in, and the annual Lenten Easter Mission Offering is hoping for your support.

For many years, the generous hearts of the Trinity congregation have financially sustained LEMO. These acts of financial kindness have supported nonprofits in our city, state, country, and world.

This scripture from John 14:27: “Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid,” make me think about the people in our community. For lots of different reasons, we know there are troubled and fearful hearts all around us.

Donating to LEMO can help reduce the stress experienced by troubled and fearful hearts.

We hope you will prayerfully consider donating.

When you do, it’s a win for two hearts—the giver and the receiver.

GIVE to the Lenten Easter Mission Offering

Give to the Lenten Easter Mission Offering via our GIVE page. Be sure to select the LEMO from the dropdown menu!
