Laura’s Blog Entry
See that sleeve? Soooo close to being done. I just need a nice hour or so to finish it up! And weave in all the ends, of course. And block it. Can’t wait to block it!
I just finished the book, The Gift in You: Discovering New Life Through Gifts Hidden in Your Mind, by Dr. Caroline Leaf. It’s a really interesting book about brain function and how to determine how your brain processes information. It also covers scientific data on the effect of toxic thoughts on the brain. Depression, anxiety, all the heavy hitters. Then she talks about how to reprogram your brain for joy as well as better functioning, which appear to be one and the same thing!
I love that she applies scripture to the concepts to show that this information is actually throughout the Bible. I find it fascinating that brain function is in the Bible. I don’t understand when people think the Bible and science are at odds. I’m sure I just opened a huge can of worms for someone, but that’s the way it goes. I’m just getting real around here. I find the intricacies of science only strengthen my faith in the creator of the universe.
Anyhoo, hope you are reading and/or knitting something enjoyable and you have a happy brain!
