Article & Interview by: Debbie Stokes
During these times of family lockdowns, social distancing, and executive orders being placed on its residences by city, state, and the federal government due to the coronavirus pandemic; people are finding ways to be creative. They are experiencing self-discovery, shifting prospectives, rediscovering family, implanting themselves in their faith, and holding onto the power of prayer.
As they find themselves looking for light to help drown out the darkness, some have turned to social media like never before to help pass time and share light with others. Everyone from the “regular Joe Public” to celebrities are finding ways to connect to people with the intent to spread joy outside their homes—contributing everything from singing, dancing, and holding livestreams, to sharing helpful information. So many are using this time to bring value to others.
