Pressing Pause – 100 Quiet Moments for Moms


Ladies, let’s get real for just a moment.  Do you try to put God first and find it to be hard? I do too!  We’re busy as soon as the alarm clock goes off in the morning we are non stop for the day.  I have a hard time finding time to read any book on it’s own but I’ve found a solution.

Church vs Sports and Why We Chose Sports

Church vs Sports.  When your schedules just don’t mix.  Which one do you choose?

In the summer we enrolled our kids for Wednesday night Awana.  Which happens to run during our school year.  For those of you who don’t know what Awana is, just think of the Boy/Girl Scouts, but Christian based. The kids learn bible verses, etc and earn awards, jewels and so on.

In the fall we decided to enroll all of our boys in baseball.  Fall ball for us starts Sept/Oct and runs for about 12 weeks.  Normally we swap and let the twins play during the spring and our youngest son play during the fall. We were optimistic having all 3 boys playing.  It shouldn’t be too bad right?

14 Days to Finding Meaning in the Mundane: For the Love of Money

I’m looking over the bills today and realize we don’t have enough money.  It seems as if we never have enough.  We’ll never be out of debt and debt is a way of life.  We’ll always carry a mortgage payment, car payment and credit card debt.  That’s a fact.

Discipline doesn’t start with D it starts with You!

Discipline

 Discipline

 

In my mind Discipline is a dirty word.  This year, I’m really challenging myself to be disciplined.  I often look over my life and wonder why things aren’t happening but often fail to look within.

What do I mean fail to look within?  We’ll I believe discipline starts with faith.  I believe that GOD has a plan and is working within each of us. (Jeremiah 1:5  Before I formed you in the womb I knew you, before you were born I set you apart)

I trust GOD and I trust that he is working within my life.  He’s paved a path for me, but yet I don’t follow.  Why?  Because I lack discipline.  GOD is working through me, not for me.  I know I’ve got to be more disciplined and do the work.  Being lazy is only going to take me longer to get where he wants me to go.

If you feel like you are not getting where you need to go, stop and evaluate what steps have you taken to get where you want to go.

Are you feeling overwhelmed with debt?  We’ll ask yourself…What changes have you made to get out of debt?

The Bible tells us in Proverbs 14:23  All hard work brings a profit, but mere talk only leads to poverty and in Proverbs 16:3 Commit to the Lord whatever you do, and your plans will succeed.

Whatever your life is lacking, you need to find discipline.  Then do what it takes to make it happen and know that GOD has your back!

I Almost Resigned being a Stay at Home Mom

I’ve been a stay at home mom for 3 years and right now I hate it. I’m exhausted! I feel like I’m so far underwater with everything and the tide just keeps raging in and I can’t come up for air. I enjoy being home for my family, but I don’t enjoy the duties that come along with it. When I’m working – I feel more adapted to deal with all of the crap that is handed to me, because I’m getting paid for it. At home I don’t. I just try to take it and smile as if I enjoy it and that’s really hard to do.
