Check out the Sit Down during Hispanic Heritage Month with The Estrella Family.

Learn the history and connections of how these people from near and far came to discover their connections through DNA and genetic research.

It is amazing to understand through technology that sometimes strangers have more in common than one would imagine. They definitely gave a piece of their story and it was an amazing discussion that was personal and educational.

Today we got to meet my mom’s “new” cousin Tom, who’s actually an always been there cousin but we finally found him and got to hang!

He and his wife Karla drove down from their campsite in Santa Barbara to spend the day with us 🥰 #twentythreeandme #familyfound #olson

With so much intense energy happening around the world, ceremony gives us back our power.

If you begin and end your day with a ceremony of any kind, you are in control of THAT! You get to decide what and when.🥳⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Try a sleep ceremony if you aren't sleeping well. They are different for everyone, confined to what works best for you. You can’t do it wrong! 🤓⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
For me to sleep well, I need to get off my cell-so hard for me 😬, an hour before bed. I tale a cold shower, yep, it takes some getting used to and you can start with warm first if needed. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
A cold shower helps to lower my body temp and I sleep way better! It helps my body chemistry settle, sends endorphins to my brain and ohhh don't need that! I need to lower my AC so my bran can reset fully as I also.

Our brain needs to go through what is like a dishwasher cleanse every night. If we try and sleep in a room that is 60-68 degrees-which I can’t, I do 74; I’m in Arizona, in the summer. When we do sleep in a cool environment, we have our best chance at really allowing our brain to function at its best. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I also journal a bit, I write all the things that I am grateful for, even on a rough day; it's so helpful! This helps me be in a good headspace for rest, healing and sleep.😴 💫⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
In the AM, I start my day ceremony with Qi Kung organ sounds, ⚡️my husband laughs every time!! This is a fast at to wake up all my organs, and bring them into balance! I LOVE https://youtu.be/OacHGIc3Rig ⭐️Liz Hennessey’s exinations as she goes. Feelsnsillybat first, but see how you FEEL after. Then I always pull an Angel card. ✨My FAVORITE is @kylegrayuk !!✨ He has beautiful, inclusive decks that are a spot on every time! His cards and this guidance always sets up my day for happiness and possibility!!
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
What ceremony do you do and why? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
What do you think you would try? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I'd love to know what helps you. 💜🙏🏻💜🙏🏻💜⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Received my 23 and me test results today. They pretty much say the same as my results from Ancestry.com.

I am basically 98% European (mostly Polish and Czech Republic) and 2% West African (Nigeria). Ancestry.com does not list Native American at all but 23 and me lists 0.1% Indigenous American in my DNA. I have more Neanderthal DNA than 66% of other customers. Not sure if that is good or bad but it amounts to less than 2% of my DNA. #23andMe #ancestrydna #DNA #twentythreeandme #ancestors #heritage #ThisIsMe #ancestrydnaresults

Can you say 23 and AVSE? This is our family tree!

Travel back in time with us tomorrow for an all new episode from the A Very Special Episode family!

🥳🥂 #twentythreeandme 🎉🎂

There are so many reasons people take a DNA test. 🧬⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

I took mine for health history. I got really sick and couldn't figure it out. The results I got were so out of left field; I was absolutely not expecting it. 🤯⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I found out my dad was not my dad. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I also found out that my biological dad was this sweet man who I knew as a child. Next, I learned that my dad had illnesses I really needed to know about to live my best life. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
When you uncover this family secret, it's a flood of information, emotion, and fundamental change.🦋⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Have you gone through this too? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I would love to hear from you. You can message me or comment below.💜

In Psalm 23, David declares with confidence in the Shepherd:⠀

“Surely goodness and mercy will follow me all the days of my life.”⠀

In other words, You can count on God’s goodness and mercy EVERY day for ALL your days.⠀

The Shepherd never runs out.⠀

Today, we wrap up our 4-week long deep dive into Psalm 23 with @andreacolispeaks - she'll be

unpacking what it means to believe that there is goodness and mercy waiting for us on the other side of our circumstance...and how we can actively live out that belief today.⠀

Enjoy today's service on https://buff.ly/3aqCfLw - after this week, our online gatherings will look a little different, as we'll begin our focus on in-person gatherings and bringing our church back together in one place.⠀

We'll still upload online services...but later on Sundays. Have a great weekend!⠀

Surely goodness and mercy will follow me all the days of my life, and I will dwell in the house of the Lord forever.

Psalm 23:6⠀

This Sunday, we dive into our fourth, and final, installment of 23 and Me - our series where we explore Psalm 23 and how David came to embrace the life of peace and restfulness that our Creator longs for all of us to have.⠀

Andrea Coli ( @andreacolispeaks ) will be joining us to teach on this final verse, and to examine what it means to believe that God has goodness and mercy waiting for us...no matter what the circumstance.⠀

Join us live Sunday morning by registering for our 10am outdoor gathering at crosswindschurch.org, or join us on Facebook or YouTube to connect with our online gathering. And make sure you have your plan in mind for our June 13 kickoff - we'll be outdoors at 9am, indoors at 10:30, and on the web later that Sunday!⠀

Changing seasons.⠀

We're transitioning back to full indoor gatherings...which means our online services, while still consistent, will look a bit different.

Come June 13, we'll be posting film of our live, indoor services...which means moments like this, where we filmed the sermon in our makeshift studio, will be a thing of the past.⠀

But if there's something the last fifteen months has taught us, it's that nothing stops God. The amount of folks in our congregation who experienced life change, took important steps in their faith journey, or simply came to know God deeper, all because they engaged and connected with us while we were online, tells us that we get the honor of serving a church who will go with us...wherever we have to go.⠀

So thank you, CrossWinds - you made church during the pandemic an absolute adventure and joy, and now, we get the privilege of gathering with you indoors on June 13...and we can't wait.

God is preparing a solution for your *specific* problem.⠀

We tend to speak about God in generalities. We say “God is working for the best. God makes all things work together for good.”⠀

And those things are true. ⠀

But David had a specific problem when he wrote Psalm 23...and his problem was enemies. He had people trying to kill him. And when he writes "You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies..." he's saying God’s got a solution for that. A solution for my enemies.⠀

He’s preparing a table to solve my specific problem. He’s preparing a table to solve *your* specific problem.⠀

Your marriage. Your time-management issues. Your grief. Your anger, your depression, your worry. God is preparing a solution for your *specific* problem.⠀

Today, we honor and celebrate and grieve the lives lost to protect us. We remember so that their sacrifice stays in the forefront. Have a blessed Memorial Day.⠀

It's Sunday, the weather is gorgeous, and we're celebrating today - and excited to gather with you, whether it's in person on our land or online!⠀


Today, over at crosswindschurch.org, we continue into week 3 of our series 23 and Me: Restful Living in a Restless World. These past weeks, we've been taking our time and savoring every verse and ever word of the 23rd Psalm - and asking God to break open our understanding of how we can find rest by living these words out in our every day circumstances.⠀

Today, we're talking about our problems - and what God says about His perfect solutions to them. All that, plus worship and a fantastic update on our upcoming June 13 opening, where we'll begin gathering indoors! ⠀

“You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies.

You anoint my head with oil; my cup overflows.” Psalms‬ ‭23:5‬ ⠀

Starting this Sunday, we’re continuing our journey through the 23rd Psalm by asking you to consider your relationship with the Great Problem-Solver...and how we can draw closer to an understanding of how He’s setting a table for us that we can’t see yet.⠀

Join us live on our land this Sunday. Tune in on Facebook, YouTube, and on crosswindschurch.org when you get up Sunday morning and join us from a distance. Or set aside time next week to dive deep with us...because our online services are ready whenever and wherever you are. And make plans to be with us live on June 13 as we open the doors to our community for our first indoor service of the year!⠀

Even as adults, we can have fears that paralyze us - and having the valuable insights of others can help us navigate them.⠀


This past week, we asked some of our friends to help us with our fears...and the advice they gave us might surprise you.⠀

Visit crosswindschurch.org to connect with our service, where we dove deep into Psalm 23 and what God says about our fear.⠀

Living in fear prevents you from living in fullness. ⠀

As a community, we’ve spent the past 14 months grappling with fear - real, reasonable fear, the sort of fear that God tells time and again that He is worthy of.⠀

In Psalm 23, David talks about a Shepherd - one who empowers us to know and believe, even though we walk through the darkest valley, that our fears are nothing compared to the reality that life with God represents. ⠀

What are you scared of this week? What lurks in the back of your mind, and clouds your vision? Today, as a church, we’re declaring that we walk with a God who actively wants to defeat our fears for us.⠀

Watch more of yesterday’s deep dive into Psalm 23 at crosswindschurch.org!⠀
