When was the last time you really thought about how your words and tone are influencing those around you?

I think most Christians will tell you that prayer is one of the spiritual disciplines they struggle with most. I would be lying if I didn't admit the same struggle. I've read about or heard about many different methods of prayer, but I have a hard time trying to make them work for me. I try one, and when it doesn't work, I always fall back to this one method that never fails to keep me engaged in payer: written out prayer.

I could try and analyze what brought this burnout on. It could be the crazy busy schedule during this last month. It could be my failure to get to the gym this week. It could be the fact that I haven't been taking my vitamins, drinking enough water, getting enough sleep, etc. But if I'm being honest, I don't think it's any of those things this time. No, this time its more than just mom burnout, it's spiritual burnout. And it needs to be dealt with immediately.

Like many things, my taste in music has changed over the years. There came a day where children's songs were beneath me, then I discovered "praise choruses", but I only listened to those at church.

I am a podcast junkie.

I'm pretty sure I've talked about this before but I love routines! I love planners and pens. I enjoy reading books and articles about planning the perfect day/week/season. I've pinned several different cleaning routines and plans on Pinterest with then intention of trying all of them. And don't even get me started on the number... Continue Reading →

If you follow me on social media then you saw my posts asking for blog suggestions. I confess, as Friday approached (my self imposed deadline that I'm really trying to keep up on), my mind was completely void of any ideas for a post. Thankfully, I was given some really good suggestions, the first of... Continue Reading →

I was having a really bad day. I had let my imagination run wild and it took me to a dark place. It took me to a place of doubt. I questioned everything. I doubted my husband's love for me, my abilities to meet his needs. I questioned whether I was doing the right thing... Continue Reading →

Like so many other parents, I've caught myself thinking "I wish kids came with an instruction manual". I mean having something that decipher the seemingly meaningless crying or help me make decisions on important things like school, discipline or vaccinations. Unfortunately, there isn't a single written document that can address these specific issues. Sure there... Continue Reading →

I've heard it time and again, "Practice self care to avoid mom burnout." I've been heeding this amazing advice for a few months now and let me tell you, I have been in a much better mood. When I've taken time by myself to prepare for the day, I'm much more relaxed, much more motivated,... Continue Reading →
