Making Jesus Real – Week 8 – BEING POSITIVE

MJR teaches us to believe not only in God, but in ourselves, to look for the hero inside of each one of us.  Encouraging positive thinking in children is one of the important aspects to shape their personality and future. As parents there are ways we can foster positive thinking in our children.

Be a role model

The more optimistic you are as a parent, the better understanding your child shows in the principles of positive thinking.

Do not dismiss the negative emotions

If your child is facing negative emotions and situations such as defeat or pain, do not dismiss the feelings right away. Acknowledge them and explain that such emotions are a part of life. Encourage them to look beyond the problem and think what good might be disguised in the problem.

Encourage and motivate your kids

A family is the first school for any child. As a parent, your motivation and appreciation work wonders in instilling confidence in your children.

Let your children believe that they CAN and they WILL.

St Patrick’s Day Fundraiser for Project Compassion

Last week, we held our very successful St Patrick’s Day fundraiser for Project Compassion.

We are excited to let the community know that we raised $380 for Caritas, which will be donated to help people around the world, and here in Australia to assist them to live with dignity.  Many thanks to the Matthew Gibney Community for your wonderful support.

Third Sunday of Lent 19th and 20th March

Janice 44, is a proud Wagilak woman, a traditional dancer, living in a remote community in the Northern Territory. As elders grow older and pass away, she knows she must share her knowledge with the younger generation. However, the community faces multiple challenges, including a lack of jobs, limited educational opportunities, and socio-economic which can lead to young people becoming disconnected from culture.  

With your help, Caritas Australia supports Djilpin Arts Aboriginal Corporation, which operates a centre for traditional and contemporary Aboriginal arts and culture, providing employment and generating income for local communities.
