Write this down

Proverbs 16:3 (New International Version)

3 Commit to the LORD whatever you do,
and your plans will succeed.

School is starting up again. Schedules are changing. Whether you have a child in school or not, look at your calendar. Can you schedule some special time with your child? Maybe a lunch date at school? Maybe a special outing on the weekend? Maybe some time alone at home? Now mark it on your calendar as an appointment you can't miss. Setting aside time with your child (each of your children) not only makes them feel special, but also helps you focus.

Can you make this a regular occurrence? Once a week? Once a month? Every other month?

Prayer Suggestion: Ask God to show you ways to spend special, individual time with your child.


  1. Beautiful blog, Jenny! I love your ideas for scheduling time with your kids. That's so hard for parents to do these days. I homeschool mine, so I have the opposite problem -- finding time to do something for myself. But, that's a good thing! :)

  2. Welcome, Rena. Whenever I visit my girls at school, they love it and their friends are so jealous.

    I have a future blog planned about taking time for yourself!

    Thanks for following and reading.
