Healthy Eating, Healthy Relationships

A group of children during a lesson.

We continue to offer the Transformational Community Development (TCD) women’s program, and one of the participants is Mrs. Umm Maharael. She shared, “There are always differences between my husband and I and my children and I because of my insistence and my lack of understanding with them, which makes them constantly angry. My voice was loud and created problems at home. After I heard a TCD lesson about stubbornness, I decided to change and communicate with my family. I wanted to understand their feelings and desires, not be stubborn with them, be calm, stay away from anger, control myself and my emotions, be flexible, start a dialogue, and not be stubborn about things in which I might be wrong.”

We continued to provide TCD programs for children as well. After a health lesson about maintaining their bodies, one child, David, said, “During the lesson, I discovered that I was using my body and time in the wrong way when I stayed up every day until dawn in front of the Internet on my mobile phone and in front of the TV to watch movies and series. I made the decision not to stay up late in order to protect my eyes and my body.”

A little girl, Sabah, also participated and said, “I am harming my body by not eating healthy, and I decided to give up preserved foods, such as chips, and I will eat healthy food.” 

Another child, Cyril, said, “I went to the doctor and discovered that I have fat on my liver, and I am very overweight due to unhealthy eating. He gave me treatment, but nothing changed. After participating in a lesson, I decided I would maintain my body. My thinking changed, and I knew that I was harming myself and my body by eating a lot of unhealthy food. I decided to organize eating times and eat healthy food.”

Thank you,
