Time Management, Routines, Organization

The baby is almost 4 weeks and I have been wanting to get "busy" doing things for a few weeks now.  While I sit and nurse the baby, I just think about all the things I need to accomplish.  This can cause a bit of stress since I can't get it all done right now.  I am learning to take it step by step and praying alot for direction in the things I am not great at---time management and organization. 

I daily strive to excel in time management and organizing my home.  I love to read books on organizing and how to manage my home.  The best book for time Management is Managers of Their Homes  by Steve and Teri Maxwell.  An exellent book on how to manage your home and time.  You can do almost everything you have planned for the day.  A great book for small and large families.  I was introduced to this book when I had 3 children and have been applying their tips since 2000.  I just recently ordered their other two books, which are much needed in my life right now.  Managers of Their Chores and Managers of Their Schools.  

I am still learning on how to balance my free flowing personality with a more strict routine.  I have gone from no routine to stricter schedules.  I do get a bit tense with detailed schedules, but I do like them :D.  Just like organizing--I love reading, talking, and walking down the organizational isle in the stores.  I just have a hard time applying the things I have learned.  I am sort of doing it, but in small baby steps.  I am very excited about reading the books I just mentioned.  As I read and learn...I will share.

Meet Sweet Kara Faith

My sweet friend Nancy from Mom Just Like You , delivered sweet Kara Faith on January 8, 2010 at around 6:45 AM. Nancy's husband Stu calls me around 5:30 AM to let me know Nancy's contractions never let up and she was going to be delivering their long awaited miracle baby Kara. It has been an emotional battle these past 4 to 5 months for Nancy and Stu. Kara was diagnosed with Alobar HPE on the same day they found out they were having a baby girl, their 8th child, third daughter. Their heart was broken not knowing what the future held for them. Nancy leaned on the only source she had in her life: The Lord. I have been friends with Nancy for 5 plus years now (we met on MOMYS). When I found out Nancy was going to have a special baby, immediately my mommy heart was aching for my sweet friend. I went into deep prayer and intercession for them. I was grieving along with them, but deep down in my heart I knew God was and is Faithful. As I prayed one evening at worship nigh
