I’m SO glad you are here! This 31 day series is all about helping you live a better, more fulfilling life. We start October 1st but you can jump in anytime.
What is the number one question I hear from other moms? How on earth do I get it all done?! Being a mom is an amazing job but if we are stuck in an overwhelming cycle of not being able to climb out from under all the things on our plate we will never be able to enjoy it.
You may hear others encouraging you to “stay in the moment” but how on earth can you do that when the laundry is piling up, your child’s room is an insane mess, you are late scheduling the dentist appointments, and dinner needs to be done in 20 minutes? And those are just your family responsibilities. What about the things your heart longs to do? The calling on your life? The friendships you want to maintain and all the rest of life that is begging for your attention?
I’ve struggled with this very thing for years and have learned a lot along the way. Recently, I have found myself in a very busy season with lots more on my plate than usual. In the past I would just start cutting things out until I felt I could breathe again. This time is different though. I’ve learned how to not be a weary mom and it is helping me keep my eyes on the proper things during incredibly busy seasons of life.
Over the next 31 days I want to share with you some of the things I have learned that have helped me tremendously and that I believe will help us all to live life well while staying on top of all the things we need to maintain in life.
This series will be both spiritual and practical. I don’t think you can have one without the other. We’ll go to God’s Word to see what He says about our priorities and we’ll learn about ways to fill ourselves up to endure the challenges that come up when you are a mom.
In case you are new here I’d love to tell you just a little bit about myself – I am Kristin Lemus, wife to a great guy and mom to 7 children. My oldest is 17 and my youngest is 7. We have 5 girls and 2 boys (one in heaven). 2 of my girls are twins. I love to write and share my heart here on my blog. I am also passionate about encouraging other moms to be brave and boldly live out their callings as moms. I help host a blogging conference, and am working on a new site and conference for moms called Brave Moms. I’m incredibly introverted and love one-on-one conversations. I like lattes, black and white stripes and good books.
