For by grace you have been saved through faith, and this not of yourselves it is the gift of God, not of works, so that no one can boast. Ephesians 2:8-9

Maximize your Morning Challenge - Week 5: wrap-Up

It's wrap-up time over at So I Married a Mennonite on how our month long challenge into maximizing our mornings went.

I am going to start my wrap-up with 2 quotes:

" The biggest room in the world is the room called Improvement"

"Christians are work in progress"

Yes, these summarizes where I am in the challenge. I have improved, but there is lots of room for more. Yet, I am not discouraged because I know I am a work in progress in the hands of the Almighty God.

Overall I have been able to wake up earlier than I used to, except for this past week, during which I have been feeling very tired.

I have reaped the rewards of waking up before the kids, and getting organized for day, as well as time spent in the Word and in Worship. I think I will still adjust that time further, but again it will be a process. I am thinking of getting a routine of working in the kitchen in the early morning listening to an audio reading of the Bible.

I have not made any progress regarding the exercise part, but I really need to loose weight, so this will have to become a priority.

Schedule wise I have not made much progress there yet either, but I am certainly getting there. I am in process of changing our schedule, so this will be a good time. Also next week will be our first break after 4 weeks of school, so hopefully it will give me  time to get my household routine up and running. I did though, rearrange my home binder (which was in a very pathetic state). I am really excite about that, new binder, protector sheets and more separations.

What did I gain from participating in the challenge?

I reconnected with the Word of God in a new way: Life has this way of taking you away from it. It is so refreshing to get back to where we should be.

I got motivated. Motivation is so important and instrumental in anybody actually doing anything. Even if I have not succeeded in everything, I am motivated to keep up and get better. This was a great boost.
