New Year, New Vision-God’s Vision
Have you ever made a vision board? I’m going to be honest, I’ve not been one to jump on this bandwagon. But earlier this year, I felt the Lord impress on my heart to write the vision down. More accurately, to create a visual representation of the dreams that He had spoken to me. So I did it. I made a collage of words and pictures to represent the things that I knew He put in my heart. It was a healing process because life had kicked me down and I could barely do the things I needed to do daily, let alone dream or work on my dreams. Once…
How to Live on Only One Income
Is it possible to quit your job and live on only one income? Yes. No. Maybe. I saw this question asked in a business group I’m in and it got me thinking about my journey.

How can I run a blog, a business, homeschool, and keep my sanity? The answer will surprise you. First of all, I don’t do it all. And no, I don’t have a ton of disposable income (yet) to hire out everything. I try (sometimes imperfectly) to live by the following principle: You can’t do everything, but you can do the things that matter the most. It’s not a bible verse or a word from God. It’s a common-sense mindset that has freed me to say…
The Time Management Myth
I always remember going to interviews for jobs and the interviewer would inevitably ask how well I could manage time. As if time can be managed. Looking back, I wish I could tell them what I know now. I wish I could tell them that it’s impossible to manage time. Time management is a myth. I’m going to put it on a t-shirt, because we must stop thinking that time can be managed. Tasks can be managed. Goals can be met. But time cannot be managed. Time will come and go, and you’ll never get it back. You can’t invest it and get more back. So, what would I say…
Trade the Superficial for the Satisfying: Self-Care With Jesus
Self-care is a very popular buzzword in the mom and mompreneur world right now. We moms have a bad habit of putting everyone first to our detriment. We never really focus on doing the most important things because we are too busy trying to do all the things. And so, we suffer. We don’t take care of our bodies. We stop eating well.

Our self-worth becomes tied up in all these things and we’re just so tired. Right? What’s the standard solution? More “me” time.…
