Moving, Weddings, etc!!

Hi Friends!
I have received many emails asking if we are okay and the answer is "yes"!   This summer has proved to be yet another season of transition and adjustment.   We have rented out our family home for "summer rental" (the much needed cash flow was just too good to pass up!) and our daughter Christina is getting married on August 21st!  Needless to say it is a bit chaotic in the Schuller household these days!
We continue to feel so fortunate and blessed as Robert's media business continues to grow in many healthy ways.  We have also taken on or continue to be involved in several projects locally and globally.    Locally we are involved in training and leadership for a new anti-oxidant energy drink company called Xsera.  Both locally and internationally I continue to broker telecommunications, gas and electricity.   I also continue to coach individuals in body, mind, and spirit health through my nutritional coaching practice.  
Robert and I both leave for our next Global Peace Festival, this year in Mongolia, a day and a half after the wedding!  There we will once again espouse conflict resolution as we encourage and help facilitate peace-building efforts among the world's main religions.
The most exciting project that we plan on launching this September is our private spiritual retreats for 1-4 persons, all in the privacy of our own home!  Both Robert and myself will be offering one-on-one counseling sessions, leadership and mentoring training, marriage and friendship renewal, financial advice, and complete body, mind, and spirit restoration.  I will even cook you a healthy continental breakfast each day!   You can check out our listing on airbnb.com ..."Robert A. Schuller Spiritual"
Of course we continue to attend our son Bobby's church and encourage his efforts with The St. Patrick Project as we enjoy our darling grandbaby, Haven.
Please continue to pray for us as we do for you.
Change is not easy but a necessary part of life.   No change=no growth.  I believe with all my heart that each detour of our plans and every challenge we face avails us the opportunity for character building.  It also helps teach us awareness and deep appreciation for the many blessings around us every day.
If you too are experiencing a season of change I encourage you to make a list of all of your blessings.  This includes your family and friends, opportunities, your job, your personal possessions, or anything that you have in life.  Make sure the list is at least one page, single-spaced.  Post it where you can read it each morning.  Remember to thank God for how much you have... never dwell on what you have lost.

"We rejoice in the hope of the glory of God, not only so, but we also rejoice in our sufferings, because we know that suffering produces perseverance; perseverance, character, and character hope.  And hope does not disappoint us..."   Romans 5:2-5
Always hold on to hope.   Good things are just around the corner!
God is blessing you.   Donna
