Mental Health Awareness

Mental Health Awareness

Hey, candle cousins! As some of you already know, I created this business out of necessity. Yes, I neeeeed my candles, but more importantly, I needed peace! I was going through such a hard time during the pandemic.

 I had lost people who were near and dear to me. I was stuck in the house and I felt like I was losing my mind. I was in need of an intervention.My husband and I started looking for things to help me cope with the anxiety and depression I was feeling. I started making candles and listening to worship music.

I tell everyone that I made it through with candles and Jesus! You can too! Be sure to always set time aside for YOU! You are important! You matter! Every year I donate to a mental health agency or a church who helps people get the mental health support that they need.

When you feel like you are losing it, take a moment, pray, go for a walk, listen to music, scream or do what you need to do to get through the moment, but remember that it is just a moment.

It wont last and it wont defeat you! I believe in you and I believe in a GOD who can bring you through any struggle.

If you are in need of mental health services you can search the city of Chicago website and the state of Illinois website if you are in Illinois. If not your local city or state website may have resources online. We are always ready to pray with you. Send us a message. Keep the faith! Keep pushing! You are more than a conqueror and always remember to "Let it shine"!
