One of the first things that popped up on my phone this morning was a headline that included a word I hadn’t seen before: “Quaranteaming” It cleverly describes the new reality of choosing who you’ll quarantine with so you won’t be alone anymore. The article said people are leaving their homes and joining other friends or family to assist in their feelings of loneliness while still abiding by the rules. My daughters, Rachael and Claire, who after more than a month of being alone with their children organized a FaceTime get together for the cousins! It was a great way for them to stay safe but isolate together. My grandkids don’t fully understand all that’s going on, but the faith and trust they have for their parents is precious. My girls didn’t realize what they were doing was “Quaranteaming”! I love the idea of being a “team” with those special people in our lives right now. I told them how sweet for their children, and then said the best team to be on during this time is the Savior’s. He taught about storms and burdens throughout His ministry. He knew problems would always come, that we would be tried and tested and He did everything possible to prepare us. I know I have used this scripture a lot, but Christ offers hope and comfort when He says in Matthew, “Come unto me all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.” There is a temptation to give in to fear, but don’t. Replace that fear with the faith of a child. In Jerusalem, “Jesus called a little child unto him, and set him in the midst of them and said, Verily I say unto you whosoever shall humble himself as this little child, the same is the greatest in the kingdom.” We have a limited understanding of why things are the way they are. So our best path is to focus on the Lord and give Him our fears. He has made this promise to us... “My peace I give to you... Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid.” Have faith (even as a child) in Him, and remember if God is on our team we can’t help but win! #quaranteam #happysunday #sundaymessage
In a post, which came with an image of her grandchildren wearing patterned face masks, Marie stated that even though her grandchildren didn’t quite understand what was happening in the world. The singer also explained in the post’s caption that:
“I love the idea of being a ‘team’ with those special people in our lives right now. I told them how sweet for their children.”
Marie’s sweet post comes just days after Closer Weekly revealed that she joked that she wanted more grandchildren.
In fact, the want had grown into a massive need that required her to share an image that showed her holding up a sign that read: “Need more grandkids.”
Although the 60-year-old star has been enjoying isolating with her husband, Steve Craig, at their Utah home, she ensured that she took some time out to see her two daughters, Rachael and Jessica, and her granddaughter, Rocket Jade beforehand.
The “Maybe This Time” star has also been doing her bit to encourage people during the ongoing novel coronavirus pandemic.

If you look closely at the photo... it’s me! My face was painted to look like the famous #WeCanDoIt poster from 1943! During this challenging time, we have turned back to our “Rosie the Riveter” days! Remember the helpers Mr. Rodgers told us to look for? Well, they are companies like Ford, GM & Dyson who have started retooling to make much needed ventilators. There are also regular people who are delivering food to quarantined healthcare workers and going in to soup kitchens to box up meals for seniors, children, and others in need. We are giving Rosie a run for her money right now!! I had an epiphany yesterday when I knocked a big bottle of peppermint oil off the table onto the floor. It broke in a million pieces and I ended up using four towels to clean up the mess it made. The positives were how amazing the whole room smelled, and as soon as I could smell it, I thought, “smell is the first thing to go with this virus... I can smell so I don’t have it!” (I know how that sounds but I am a little stir 😜 crazy!) Last night I put a load of laundry in the wash, and forgot the towels that I used to clean up the mess were mixed in! When I put them in the dryer I realized the oil was on every single thing because I washed them all together. Suddenly I could see how easily the virus was like the oil in the bottle. 😳 It was sobering to see not only how fast it could go, but how I didn’t even realize it was happening. Fear travels just as fast as that oil and the virus. But then I also realized Peace can be spread that quickly also. During these times it’s easy to be afraid—we have good reason! Our health and livelihoods are on the line. However if we choose, we can spread peace as easily as fear. We have no control over the mile long list of things the virus has taken from us but what we do have control over is finding some good in all of this. Go to my Facebook page to read the rest of my #SundayMessage & let’s continue this conversation tomorrow on @thetalkcbs! We will be coming to you from our homes to yours!! We are so excited to be back and so excited to stay connected... so we can all #TALK together!! #InThisTogether #RosieTheRiveter
While noting that “fear travels just as fast as that oil and the virus,” the “Dancing with the Stars” alum stated that she realized that peace could be spread just as quickly as fear.
