A Giveaway That Could Potentially Change Your Life

A Giveaway From the Power of Moms!
I've been a mother for 12 years and I've almost always felt like I was barely hanging on. I'd forget appointments, rush to throw something together for dinner, and then spend hours on housework wondering the whole time if I was ever going to get the hang of this job as a homemaker.

Eventually, I learned to keep a paper planner (the digital ones just didn't work for me). My paper planner helped me remember appointments and PLAN for the week ahead. This made such a difference in my productivity but also helped me to feel prepared and to avoid the worry that I've forgotten something.

About a year after using and loving my paper planner I came across an advertisement for 
I immediately found help and hope for so many areas of my life that seemed to be difficult to control. I read a few blog posts and listened to almost all of their podcasts. I was finding the content of the website to be relatable to my experiences as a mom, wife and homemaker. I found that I could trust the advice and ideas that were offered on the site. The whole site is rich in free content that pulls at your heart, opens your mind and inspires your daily life.

In time I found a product they offered that I knew I had to try out. After weeks of learning and doing this program I can honestly say that it has changed the way I do things dramatically! I love it so much I want to share it with you!!

In a nutshell, this program helps you organize your calendar, papers, projects, goals and all the difficult to manage aspects of daily life. It offers concrete steps to help you clear your mind of the tasks of life so that you can focus.
The first thing I did after reading my first assignment was to clean out my emails. It sounds stressful, but really was so easy and more rewarding than I would have guessed.  It feels great to keep up on emails now and after months of using the program I have not slipped back into letting my emails stack up as they had before.

There is so much more to the program that I could go on and on.  There are videos, charts, and assignments that move you forward. You have to try it out! And now for the giveaway!

Power of Moms has offered to give one of my readers the MIND ORGANIZATION FOR MOMS eCourse for free (a $120 value!). To enter the giveaway simply leave a comment on this blog post telling us which part of your life you are most looking forward to getting organized. 

Are you hoping to win? For a second chance to win share this blog post on social media and link to where you shared it in a second comment. I will need to confirm each "share" before adding your second entry.

A Good Day

It's a good day for some Etsy work. I love working in my dining room because I get the best lighting here it's bright and cheerful.

The last few weeks I've been working on an exciting new program, which I'll share more details about soon. It's from the power of mom's website. It's been life-changing to say the least. As I sat down to lunch today with a friend I told her over and over again her that she needs to check out the power of mom's website. I think everyone should check it out. There are so many good ideas how to get organized, how to work toward your goals and how to find joy in life. Working on this new program has kept me busy. I've also had visitors and there just hasn't been time for art. But today slowed down just enough. 
Ah, life is great. I've got a headache, I am seriously sleep deprived, and a certain two-year-old is very stinky diaper right now.  But life really is good because I'm working toward something I'm excited about.

Planners and Yoga Mats

repost from TUESDAY, JULY 15, 2014

Today while in child's-pose and while my nose was smashed into the foul-smelling-gym-borrowed yoga mat, the yoga instructor told us all to "let go off our to-do lists, and focus on our purpose in coming to the gym"

Little did she know that letting go of my to-do list is really bad advice for me! I don't even know where I keep my to-do list.

At my house kids are serving their own ice cream.
Kids are knocking over vases.
And when I try to take notes on my phone at church I end up taking a picture of my legs. Ugh.

I needed a to-do list more than I needed yoga. After the gym I drove all of us to the store to buy me a planner... And we looked at the yoga mats too. Would you believe I even smelled one?
