Make A Worry Jar

Casting all your anxieties on him, because he cares for you.

I Peter 5:7 (ESV)

I worried as a child. Especially during third and sixth grades, I worried far more than my parents and teachers could have realized.

Children and their fears haven’t changed much in fifty years. Friends have shared how much their grandchildren worry.

One of the things I learned along the way came from a friend’s granddaughter. Her younger brother worried so much that she made him a Worry Jar. He writes down what is bothering him and puts the paper in his jar.

The act of putting worries on paper can diminish their power. Even better, worries can be addressed and prayed about if they are made known.

Would a Worry Jar benefit your family?
