Dr Clare, mentions “I recognize the need of emergency preparation. The Saturday before Katrina hit the Gulf Coast of the United States, I was at an an emergency preparedness meeting for Encore. It’s not a Methodist Church. Committee on relief, and we left early because they said, oh, it looks like this hurricane is going , and it’s going to be pretty strong.”
But I worked with. Families and clergy and come immediately after we were in Jackson, MS and still we were without power for a couple of weeks and come. I will work with families who were staying at the shelters, and you know, that was before. Everybody had laptops and they had left all their information on their computers. It’s all to be to be gone.
It’s all to be to be. Gone to be gone to be gone and then to watch him at these little computers that were set up by the Red Cross trying to reconstruct their lives. You know without their passwords. And sometimes we can’t even remember our own passwords. Let alone try and figure out what other persons are. That’s right, you know. The other thing is interesting, so I’m I am a widow. My husband died in 2018 and I was married to 1 cool Dude, but and he had been sick for a while and you know, I kind of thought I was ready. But man, look at most. I was in a fight. I feel like I’m just coming out of my fog but I remember immediately after just step like the life insurance policies are the pension money and now thank God I was around people who advised me well because. I couldn’t really make. I thought I had my stuff together, but I didn’t and I really could have made some mistakes if I hadn’t had such good help. Well, there’s one thing also about. Being prepared and thinking that you are prepared, but my big point of everything is if you have it prepared, do you understand it?
So that’s where I’ve created the new program, which is the Emerging Blueprint to go with the app so that it helps you understand what it is you have. To start with, because maybe you need to make an alteration to it, and isn’t that empowering and give strength to the person. Whether you’re a woman or a man to be able to go into that financial advisor or that department and say. I think that this isn’t what I need. I need to have this. I want to have this instead.
How to listen with your Heart, You know, that’s one thing like in this listening model, but I taught let me find my book just happen to have my book with me, yes. But, and I guess I can do it without all of the little pieces of paper, but uhm.
We talk about the importance of listening, but also the importance of questions and I think to that I just completed a class and it’s called question formulation technique QFT that I took through Harvard. But Harvard class. It was. I figured it was the cheapest way I would ever get go to Harvard. The Graduate School of Education, but they were talking about the empowerment of. Having the right question and having the not only the skill, but you know as you get the skill link in your confidence and originally we started. This method was started in to teach school children, but then they figured out that the parents needed it because so many times parents will go to Teacher conferences.
And not even know what to ask. So I think too, as you say, that to have an understanding of what you have is really important and also having the courage to speak up and ask the questions questions. Right because?
Exactly and you only get the courage by the knowledge. Yes, yes. Because you feel like you’re backed by the knowledge, so maybe you have too much life insurance. Maybe you don’t have enough life insurance. Maybe your life insurance is ending. Maybe you don’t want it to end, maybe you have other plans for it, like there’s so many questions, but it all boils down to what kind of house policy do I have? What kind of travel insurance do I want? What kind of?
Preparation for anything, anything well, and I was a critical care chaplain for many years, and then I worked with Kentucky organ donation affiliates. Coda as family support. And designated requestor for organ donation. And so many times and variety. I’m sure. I’m sure you’ve come across this too so many times, whether it’s man or woman, wife or husband, spouse or you know. However you all are. Uh, one person can rinse the show knows everything. Yeah no. I’ve heard some Mayo she’d never even had to pay a bill ’cause dad took care of it all. Well, that might have been nice for most of your life, but here you are widow, and now what you gonna do at where do you know where the paperwork is, right? Well passwords, or that you know. All that you know, our dad, dad never. Had to do anything well. You got it. Yeah, I mean. I mean. Going forward to be helpless. How to listen with your Heart makes sense.
No, no, especially I find with younger women pushing a baby buggy and I’ll say what’s your backup plan and then say Oh my husband has it all looked after. Uhm, no, no he doesn’t. I can tell you that right now because everybody just boards. They just all fly by the seat of their pants, so don’t let it.
