As a busy mom of 2, it can be difficult to find time to spend with the Lord. And when I do have the time, it can be hard to decide what to read, and how to spend my time. Do I just dive right into the Bible? Never a bad idea, but sometimes it’s easier to have some structure. Something to read to go along with a passage of scripture to help you delve deeper into what God is trying to say through His Word.
If you’re anything like me, you’ll agree there is just not enough time in the day to read all the books that you’d like. Especially if you add in children and traveling. I way overestimated my time and ability to read when we were traveling this summer, and brought about 10 books with me, and guess how many I read while we were away?
Oh I read a couple chapters here and there of books, but I didn’t finish one of them.
[Insert rolling eyes emoji here.]
But that’s one thing that makes me excited about the fall.
Lizzy the Lioness by Lisa Bevere
Bravery isn’t always about facing scary situations with big muscles and confidence. Sometimes it means knowing you can’t handle it and asking for help. This is the lesson Lizzy the Lioness will teach children, who will quickly fall in love with the fun feline. I am such a fan already, and I know this book will be a favorite of my children for years to come!
Fridays are for fun right?
Well, what’s more fun than books and great products that will make our lives deeper, better and more enjoyable?
Ok, books may not be your idea of fun, but they are most definitely mine. There’s a ton of books and really great products that I’ve recently began reading and using that I’d love to share with you.
I have always LOVED to read. When I was younger I remember being so engrossed in one of the Harry Potter books, (at one of those really intense, “will Harry get killed this time??” moments,) that when my mom opened my bedroom door, I jumped off the bed and the book went flying from my hands. I love getting so lost in a book it felt like you were living life in those pages.
One of my hopes for Knox is that he will fall in love with reading as much as I did. (Looks like he’s well on his way!) I know so much of our culture spends its’ time in front of the TV, but I want him to experience the creativity of picturing what the characters look like, instead of that information being easily provided for him on a screen.
“You know all those things you’ve always wanted to do? You should go do them!”
In the constant chase for perfection women find themselves worried, anxious, and completely overwhelmed. Working women want to take their careers to the next level, but are struggling to “do it all.” Stay-at-home moms look for relief from burning the candle at both ends. Aspiring entrepreneurs and artists seek the courage to jump into a new venture.
Have you ever had an up-against-the-wall moment in your life? Where you feel like you are facing a challenge too difficult to conquer? I have too. I recently read Walls Fall Down by Dudley Rutherford, and feel refreshed, renewed and newly motivated that I can face any obstacle with the help of the Lord.
The secrets to overcoming any obstacle you are facing today are revealed through one of the most extraordinary victories ever recorded—the battle of Jericho.
