I’m coming out of a season of chaos. In
most many ways, I’m still in a season of chaos. It’s a full, wonderful, fulfilled but busy, tiring, and sometimes frustrating season. My season right now is little kids (two sets of twins born two years apart to be exact).
My younger twins are six months old this week and I feel like the newborn fog is starting to lift somewhat. I’m starting to crave routines again. I need to get back on a schedule. De-clutter, get some meals in the freezer, and most importantly – I desperately need to get back into daily Bible reading, more consistent prayer, and a deeper relationship with the Lord.
Have you been in a season of chaos? Your reasons for being in a fog – or a state of survival mode – might be totally different than mine. But the need is the same: that craving for some sort of routine, schedule, and getting your home (and your life!) back on track!!
If I start to think of forming “New Year’s Resolutions” – I get a bit overwhelmed. Because our schedule and routines have been all over the place and I can’t seem to get back on track with meal planning, cooking, cleaning, decluttering, my Spiritual Disciplines, or efficiently running my household.
So I’m getting ready to do something I swore I would never do…
This January, I’m committing to getting up early (before my kids) for 14 days! I purchased Crystal Paine’s (this is my affiliate link) Make Over Your Mornings Course when it first went on sale. I loved the course and started trying to put it into in August, but with barely one month old twins, there was no way I could implement an early morning routine.
If you are in a season where you feel like you can’t possibly get up early then check out how I used the course in August despite not getting up before my kids!
I am NOT a morning person and the idea of establishing better night routines so I can rise earlier does NOT excite me.
But I crave a morning routine. I long for quiet hours before the sun rises and my four boys are awake to sit with a cup of coffee and read my Bible and pray for my household. And to start off by directing where my time goes instead of letting the day happen to me.
Will You Join Me?
Like I said, I’m not a morning person. But I’ve gone in little spurts the last two years of trying to establish a better morning (and entire daily) routine. I give it a go for a day or two and give up. Honestly, at this point I’m very frustrated with myself for not being more disciplined with my time (and going to bed at a good time)!
So this year, I decided I needed a little accountability! And I thought YOU might be feeling the same way. This challenge is coming at the perfect time: It’s the new year so most people are motivated to make some changes AND you can snag the MYM course for just $17!!
For 14 days, January 11 – 28th (we are taking weekends off of the challenge), I will be daily going through the course. The course contains 14 days and an eBook to walk you step by step through the course. I’m creating a private Facebook group and inviting you to purchase the course and go through it with me!!
Take The Challenge With Me
My goal and aim is two-fold: 1) To provide accountability for one another to actually finish the course AND to start implementing better routines and 2) to share encouragement, new ideas, and resources between one another to better manage our homes!
Throughout the challenge, in the private Facebook group, we will be discussing what all of our goals are in this new year, resources for developing goals, daily discussions on that day’s material and how we can best implement these ideas and tools into our real lives!
What I’m really excited about is that everyone has different goals, morning routines, and ideas for better managing their home and I can’t wait for the accountability of this group and the ideas that are going to be flying around!!
So to participate in the challenge:
Sign up for the Make Over Your Mornings course through my link here and then request to join our private Facebook group (things will be slow in there this week but then come January 10th we will kick it into gear)!
Who is this challenge for?: Anyone who is sick of feeling out of control in her home. Read more about the course here.
Do you HAVE to get up early to participate?: NO! That’s one of my personal goals but as Crystal actually says in the opening video: this course is not about getting up early but rather it’s about establishing small little routines into different parts of your day so that you can use your time wisely and efficiently.
When is this challenge?: January 11th – 28th – but the schedule is loose. I will be in the group every day posting discussion questions and I encourage you to interact with everyone in the group. But you can pop in and out as you want. Use the group as much (or as little) as you need for accountability and additional resources!
What If I Can’t Participate This January?: No problem (but we will miss you!) – when you purchase the course, you will get lifetime access. So I encourage you to sign up now if you eventually want to take it because I doubt we will ever see this low price again! It’s a fantastic course that you can take anytime throughout the year.
What do I need to participate?: Purchase the Make Over Your Mornings Course at a fantastic price of $9 this week and then request to join our private Facebook group for the challenge. That’s it!
Why I’ve Decided To Go Through MYM
There are a ton of great books, courses, and resources out there that I could have picked for kicking off my 2016 but I’ve really been craving better routines in my life. I don’t want to just declutter a little – I want to get out of this survival mode I’ve been treading water in the last
6 months couple of years!
I need to get on top of my meal planning and cleaning routines – but most importantly, I need to work on my relationship with the Lord. I’ve made progress in 2015 to be more consistent in Bible reading, prayer, and cultivating disciplines in my life that are more Christ-like and 2016 is the year I want to make these habits STICK!
The Make Over Your Mornings Course gives me everything I need right now without being too overwhelming. Each day of the course takes 5-15 minutes to complete which is perfect for this busy mama’s schedule! And I might just be Crystal Paine’s biggest fan in the entire world – I love her no-noneness, practical approach to better managing your life and your time. She doesn’t fail to deliver in MYM!
Plus, Crystal offers the course with a 30 day no-questions-asked money back guarantee. So if you get into it and it’s not for you – no problem! Ask for your money back and move on with your year.
- Always running behind and can’t seem to catch up on daily life
- Feeling worn-out, overwhelmed, and discouraged in your home
- So desperately need to find better time to be in God’s Word and making time for prayer (<— that’s ME!!)
- Longing to rediscover purpose and JOY in your home and your daily routine again
Will you pray about joining me? I want to get a great group of gals to go through this course with me!! I really need some encouragement and accountability as I work my way through this course.
If you want to join me: Head over here to snag the course at an amazing price and then request to join our private Facebook group! Things will really start to kick into gear as we approach January 10th.
My dream would be to find 200 like minded women to go through this course with me in January! If you know any family or friends who would love to go through this course with us, send them this link!
