Ask Edmond: What are you doing to stay centered, positive, and encouraged during this difficult time?

Ask Edmond

Gabby Palacios

Student and Advertising Sales Representative
OSU and The O’colly

I’ve tried to limit my news time every day and fill my days with books, journaling, and staying busy with my online classes and working remotely. Taking breaks to spend time with our pets keeps my spirits up. 

John Wohlgemuth

Lead Teaching Pastor
Henderson Hills Baptist Church

I spiritually lean on Jesus. This world is a scary place right now, so to know that the unchanging and ever-present God loves me gives me great encouragement. I also connect with other Christians to remind me of that truth. 

Brian Johnston

Director of Dining Services
Lionwood Senior Living

As Dining Director for a retirement community, I’m working long hours and my sense of purpose at work has kept me upbeat. My family and I are grateful for each other, a safe home, health, music, and good food.

Making sure I’m getting enough sleep, eating properly and doing some type of exercise to stay physically in balance. Focusing on the positive aspects and trusting that God is in control of everything keeps me from worrying too much about future, unknown, events.

Leila Pepper

Pilates instructor
The Pilates Nook

Deep breathing and movement are medicine for our bodies and minds. I’m intentionally carving out time each day to quiet my mind, breathe and exercise— with my kids, on my own and out in the sunshine whenever possible!

Mandy Castillo

Database/Calendar Manager
Henderson Hills Baptist Church

My family is trying to keep things as normal as possible by keeping some sort of routine at home, including reading God’s Word and exercise. One of my favorite verses is “Be still, and know that I am God.” This is the perfect time to believe and put this truth into practice!
