Realtor “Look for the helpers.” Fred Rogers
For 18 years, I practiced as a nurse. I had the privilege of helping people when they were most in need. I am still rewarded by being a helper. This truly gave me a sense of purpose. I was able to meet a wide variety of people and get to know them on a personal level. When I decided to make a career change, real estate was the natural choice. For nearly 30 years, my family has been in the real estate business. This path has reinvigorated my creativity, expanded my skill base in challenging and exciting ways, and made a career out of one of my favorite hobbies. I learn something new every day. Most importantly, I get to use that knowledge to help people find the place where they will spend holidays, raise their children and become part of a community. Although this path is vastly different than health care, I need. I am still rewarded by being a helper.

Realtor Unfortunately, there is not a universally accepted definition of wellness. The word wellness may appear complex. But I’m here to tell you it shouldn’t be. In a nutshell, you should think of wellness as a series of positive choices you make to live your life to the fullest. I primarily focus on physical wellness. Physical wellness has to do with keeping your body in optimal condition and health. It can be achieved through a well-balanced diet and various forms of exercise, it also includes managing your stress, and getting enough sleep. Physical activity can improve your health and reduce the risk of developing several diseases. Personally for me, exercise isn’t just about getting fit or losing weight. It helps me all the way from stress relief to greater confidence.

Social wellness can take several forms and as the Principal Broker at HTHREG I find it beneficial when employees, contractors and agents create friendships or social connections in the office. This is because quality work relationships help build a strong company culture that emphasizes respect, loyalty, and trust within our team. Social connection provides a sense of cohesion in the office, which is essential for cultivating creativity, teamwork and collaboration which is vital for success in real estate. Employees, contractors, and agents with positive relationships become more dedicated and motivated to perform their best. A work environment that promotes social connection might also experience better recruitment outcomes as well. It's really a simple cycle of success, create a positive environment and it will draw successful people who want to build a great company!

Realtor Spiritual Wellness is a discipline that, when achieved, bears fruit in all aspects of our lives. Spiritual Wellness must be prioritized over everything else, and at it’s core are disciplines including prayer, study of the Scriptures, gathering with the Saints, giving, and serving in the Body of Christ. The only way to salvation is through Jesus Christ, who came to this earth, lived a sinless life, died on a cross, was buried, and three days later rose again. He ascended to Heaven where He is now seated at the right hand of the Father. You can come to Jesus in repentance and faith right where you are. Rom 10:9-10 says: 9 If you confess with your mouth, "Jesus is Lord," and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead, you will be saved. 10 One believes with the heart, resulting in righteousness, and one confesses with the mouth, resulting in salvation.
LIVE… Live life at your workplace with enthusiasm and excitement. Create good connections with your peers. It is no secret that surrounding yourself with positive people affects one’s attitude and motivation. Take time to get to know your co-workers to create an atmosphere of fun and enjoyment. LOVE… Do what you LOVE and LOVE what you do! One’s career encompasses so much of our time. Loving your job deepens the sense of meaning and purpose. Do not settle. Continuously setting goals or improving your skills keeps yourself engaged and excited about loving your job. LAUGH…Laughing has been proven to reduce stress. Try not to over work yourself. Take breaks! Visit with peers and talk about something other than work or business. Five-minute breaks throughout the day will help strengthen mental focus and clarity.

Safety Scissors Tape Pencil
Cut tissue paper in various sizes Fold a sheet of construction paper in half. Using your pencil, trace a half of a large Easter theme shape (cross, bunny, egg) on the folded side. With supervision kids can cut on the line using their safety scissors. While the shape is still folded, make a parallel cut about 1". This will serve as the frame of the stained glass.
Open the cut-out shape and center it on a piece of contact paper. Begin placing the squares of tissue paper inside the cut-out shape on the contact paper, you can mix up the colors or make a pattern. When the cut-out shape is filled with tissue paper, place a second piece of contact paper over the top, being extra cautious to prevent air bubbles in between layers.
Trim the excess contact paper, you might want to leave a little bit around the edge of the cutout shape, it will stick together better. Proudly display your stained glass on a prominent window that gets a lot of light!

CityYouth Ministries offers an abundance of programs and activities to intentionally address the needs of the whole child. The spiritual piece is the driving force, but the need to read and to perform academically is also a major focus of the program. Our staff is passionate about the necessary opportunities for young people to have the privilege to nurture personal talents through physical fitness training, yoga, fine arts opportunities that include art lessons, violin and singing. CYM also provides nutritional support on a daily basis with warm meals and snacks. Our building houses a Clothing Closet for students and their families, as well as providing basic items for individual families during emergencies. CYM also offers Science-based literacy therapy for children showing difficulty reading, through Dyslexia therapy. All services are provided at no charge to the families. During the 2020-21 school year, CYM expanded their programming to provide a safe-haven with food and adult supervision to youth enrolled in the virtual classroom, that otherwise would be home alone throughout the day.
Located in the heart of downtown Jonesboro, CityYouth Ministries has been serving our local youth and their families for more than two decades Just like the children they serve, CYM has experienced growing pains, moments of reflection and changes. These changes are driven by the needs of the children, the funding of the program and as of late, the Coronavirus. To learn more about the program and the amazing staff responsible for the 95 children that attend CYM daily, @301 visited with Executive Director, Denise Snider. Q: What led to the creation of CityYouth Ministries? DS: After visiting with several founders of CYM, the heartbreaking incident of the Westside School shooting years ago, created a level of awareness with leaders of our community and that incident led to deliberate plans to provide a positive place for youth in our community after school hours. Q: How do I volunteer? DS: We love getting new people involved in CityYouth Ministries! If one is interested in volunteering at CYM, they can contact CYM through our Facebook page, our webpage or by phone. After a background check and the completion of our mandatory training program. Q: Can any child attend CityYouth or is it only certain school districts? DS: Any child in the Jonesboro area can attend the program. However, our bus transportation routes are limited to the Jonesboro School District at this time.

Q: What can I expect from volunteering at CityYouth Ministries? DS: Our goal is that each volunteer feels that their time was utilized well and that their objective of helping others was met. Volunteer opportunities include preparing and serving meals, helping with homework, or answering phones. Volunteers may also participate in physical activity, games or even just spend time reading to a child that might just need some one-on-one time. Q: What are the team roles and responsibilities at CityYouth Ministries? DS: Our Group Leaders serve the children by ensuring that programming is implemented with safety and many aspects of engagement. They build amazingly close relationships with the youth in their “groups” and become an integral part of the reason that the children are so positively impacted by CityYouth Ministries. Our Programming Director works closely with the Executive Director to ensure that all aspects of programming are delivered with excellence to our children and families. That includes ensuring transportation, food, planned activities and organizing staff to be aware of expectations for the program. The Executive Director is responsible for all aspects of CYM. This includes fundraising, marketing, programming, staffing and maintaining our positive reputation within the community. The administrative staff also include an Assistant to the Director that oversees event planning, office management and financial integrity. This is secured to a deeper level with the CityYouth Ministries Accountant that works daily with the Director and Assistant.
Q: What extra opportunities, lessons, field trips etc. do the children get to experience? DS: We provide a daily Bible lesson, athletic training, yoga, art lessons, academic assistance, and literacy therapy using the nationally acclaimed curriculum, CONNECTIONS. We also look for ways for our children to learn to “give back”. We implement activities that make our youth aware of the community’s love for them and that CYM is there for them to learn to help others as well. Q: How will the community benefit from supporting CityYouth Ministries? DS: By supporting CYM, the community benefits by showing our youth that the community is there FOR THEM and that bridges of trust can be built and then nurtured. As per the founders objective, when there are positive alternate activities for youth, all youth are less likely to feel lost and lonely. We want our children to become strong community leaders and outstanding citizens. Supporting CYM provides a positive connection between the youth of Jonesboro and our local businesses and community members. Q: What are you most proud of from your time at CityYouth Ministries? DS: I am most proud of how the Jonesboro community rose to the level of need for CYM. We have been able to disengage from all federal and state funding because the community gives in miraculous ways. Educators are always aware that youth live up to the expectations of others and when procedures and expectations were implemented, ALL of the youth attending CYM responded incredibly well and the atmosphere of family has been nurtured and is flourishing. CityYouth Ministries is a happy place where the youth learn that they are loved by a Heavenly Father and He has a tremendous plan for each of their lives. .

HOW IT ALL BEGAN When I started working in the tailoring industry, I noticed there was a need for an efficient way to shop for tailored clothing. I remember asking a vendor "How can I get pictures of these suits to show my clients?" Truth is, not many of our suits have pictures available. I remember thinking. This makes no sense. We provide service to a variety of clients with minimal time in their schedules for extensive shopping. I began to brainstorm about ways to provide a shopping via text, email or social media option. It was at that moment I started putting together "outfits" to show styles and new merchandise as it arrived in store. My main goal for my clients is to provide the most seamless and efficient shopping experience possible.
