Brave Girls 365 Day Devotional

I wrote this post on behalf of Tommy Nelson and received the Brave Girls 365 Day Devotional to thank me for my time.  All opinions are my own.

The other day, I looked outside to watch Big C play.  What I saw, was a total surprise to me and I just wanted to cry tears of joy.  Big C had her hands folded and head down as she prayed out loud to God.  The door was shut so I couldn’t hear the words she was speaking, but that sight of innocence will never be forgotten.  Since Big C was a baby, we’ve read God’s word together and I’ve prayed over her.  But never once has she had the desire to pray on her own.  Six years later, I’ve seen, what I hope is just the beginning of the fruits of my labor.

My daughter and I always include devotional time as part of our bed time routine.  This year, we received a new devotional from Tommy Nelson, called Brave Girls 365 Day Devotional.  A couple of years ago, we reviewed Brave Girls Bible Stories, which was a huge hit.  This has been a great devotional to expand on the Bible stories.

How to Manage Your Home Without Losing Your Mind + Giveaway

I wrote this post on behalf of Tommy Nelson and received a copy of “How to Manage Your Home Without Losing Your Mind” to thank me for my time.  All opinions are my own.

When we were house hunting in Florida, our must need item on our checklist, was a home office or spare bedroom for my husband.  He works from home and with two small kids, you can imagine the interruptions that can occur throughout the day.  We found a beautiful home in our price range and our number one item, plus some, was checked off.  Our home is the largest we have ever owned, and though I do love it and feel very blessed, the housekeeping has been overwhelming for me.  So much so, I started to give up.

Manage Your Home

I always keep up with the day-to-day stuff, like dishes, laundry and keeping the kids alive. That’s good enough, right?  The only time I did major cleaning was when I knew company was coming.  That was extremely exhausting and two days later, it would be a mess again. Unintentionally, I began taking steps in the right direction.  I focused on the kitchen.  If I just kept the kitchen clean every day, I would be happy.  When I did this, it started to get easier and take less and less time.  This was exactly what Dana K. White, the author of How to Manage Your Home Without Losing Your Mind, suggests as her first step.

About How to Manage Your Home Without Losing Your Mind

When I read the title of this book, I knew it was for me.  Dana provides a step-by-step guide to conquering laundry, dishes, household chores, clutter and so much more.  She does it in such a way that is humorous and fun.  Though I haven’t mastered everything yet, I’m giving myself grace to slowly get our home under control.
