9 Morning Habits to Help Moms Accomplish More Each Day

There are seasons in life when overwhelm is going to happen, when we are juggling so much that it is unavoidable. New baby, new job, lots of littles, house renovations, etc. It happens, but it shouldn’t be the norm for our lives for years on end.

Yes, family life is busy and yes, if you are homeschooling, that is busy too. Working in the home or outside of the home is busy, but there’s supposed to be more to life than just being busy.

The mornings where I feel behind for the day, before my feet have even hit the ground, are the worst!

When Hopes and Dreams Don't Turn Out The Way We Planned

Hope deferred make the heart sick, but desire fulfilled is a tree of life. Proverbs 13:12

Have you ever had a hope or dream that didn’t turn out the way you had hoped?

Me too. So. Many. Times.

During those times, I have been discouraged and to be honest, I had a bad attitude when those things didn’t turn out.  I went into bitterness, anger and disbelief that was directed at God and I even began to question whether His Word was even true.
