Mama’s Daily Schedule

Seeing as how it is a new year, and I have been obviously taking a leave of absence from posting here, I thought I would share my current schedule. I have been needing a more formal schedule for myself, mostly due to the 4 children who are keeping me busy! :)  It still astonishes me how much we can all accomplish when we use our time wisely.

Now, lest you think I am some kind of crazy supermom, please keep in mind that this isn’t something I arbitrarily came up with.  I wrote down the flow of our days for over a week before writing this out.  This comes from “real life”, not something that I came up with to have a boot camp style life at home.  May I encourage you to write your days out, and see where you’ve lacked direction, motivation, or just energy, so that you can also find a way to get the most from YOUR life!

  1. Your schedule is much like ours was when the children were young. May the Lord bless your days and the time you spend with them. Also, remember that time crying out to God is invaluable to keep us humble and focused on the really important things! May the Lord bless and keep you and yours to His great glory! Keep up the good work, dear Mama :)
