So let me just start at the beginning. Toward the latter half of last year I had surgery. Then this year has been absolutely crazy for our family. Homeschooling, adding speech therapy to our already crazy schedule, church, homeschool mom’s support group, kids activities and even more put me at my limit!
Keeping up with homeschooling and everything got really hard for me. Especially taking the time to do devotions for myself. I made sure to do devotions with my children, after all I want to make sure they get a good foundation, but I really was really slacking on my own faith and growth.
It’s not really good for me to not be developing my own faith and grow in my walk with God when I am supposed to be leading my own children.
I made myself so busy and used every excuse in the book to justify why I didn’t focus on my own time with God.
Since I have 4 children ages ranging from 11 to 1 year old, I do have to schedule time. Some days that is easier than others. Some days not. I really want to schedule a minimum of 30-60 minutes but that is not always possible.
So, 10 minutes. Can you devote that much time to your walk with God? I know I can definitely cut out some Facebook time, take it with me while I wait for the kids during a class or while riding as a passenger in the car to church, appointments and such. It is definitely possible to give 10 minutes to God.
Where can you find a devotional written for busy moms like you and me? Look no further. Katie Horner at Paradise Praises really knows what it’s like to be a busy mom. She put this together because she knows how important it is for us to refill our own cups. We give so much and do so much for our families, friends, and it wears us down. Spiritually and physically. So we need to take the time to refresh ourselves.
That’s why I love about Katie Horner’s Putting on the Spirit Devotional. It’s a way to fit your devotional time into 10 minutes a day.
This devotional is also available in Spanish for Kindle.
