Do Mornings Well part 2

I had a different standard during my night-time nursing years than I do now with a seven-year-old as my youngest. As you are pondering what a successful morning looks like, [...]

Do Mornings Well! Part 1

Do Mornings Well! "Win the Morning, Win the Day!"

Love Your Husbands & Children

It’s February so I’ve been spending time reflecting on love, specifically, what it means to love my husband and children. “Older women likewise are to be reverent in behavior, not slanderers or slaves to much wine. They are to teach what is good, 4 and so train the young women to love their husbands and children, 5 to be self-controlled, pure, working at [...]

Focus on Habits, Not Resolutions and Goals!

Nope, not a fan of New Year's resolutions.  I do not need to set myself up to underachieve in one more area of my life.  We're already behind in our Language Arts program and the Latin Words flashcards still have the cellophane wrapping on them.   But the start of a new year seems too significant [...]
