This Week’s Naptime Collection

When A Fresh Start Means Selling Your Stash – The Art Of Simple :: Sometimes a fresh start means sitting down with yourself and saying, “That’s what I did. That’s who I was. But that doesn’t fit what I do now, who I am now, and it’s time to let go.”

For The Soul Who Feels Pulled In All Directions – Chatting At The Sky :: He doesn’t send me out either brave or scared, ready or unprepared, full or empty. He sends me out as me and he goes with me as him. 

How Much “Me” Time Is Too Much? (Balancing Rest & Sacrifice) – The Better Mom :: I told God how fried I was, but eventually conceded: Lord, wherever you want me to be, I’m there. Provide for me the strength I need to get through this season.

3 Meaningful Easter Activities For Kids – Women Living Well :: Loved these ideas! I’m hoping to use them with Emmy this weekend!

2. I’m starting a series next week called Hope Restored. We’ll be talking about every area of our lives – our schedules, our quiet times, our homes, our work, our marriages, and our motherhood. I’m excited to dive into these areas that often feel hopeless, and see how we can restore them with a fresh dose of hope. It starts Monday!

 

facebook party

3. In celebration of the Hope Restored series, let’s have a party! A Girl’s Night on Facebook, to be exact! Let’s hang out, LIVE, and chat about what it’s like to be wives, moms, homemakers, and women who follow Jesus. And, also, there will be prizes. Of course. Join me on my Facebook page on Wednesday, April 23 @ 6pm (PST)!

4. In May, I’ll be starting a small group study of my devotion for moms, Undivided Mom. It will all take place in a Facebook group where we can read through the book together, share life and prayer requests, and challenge each other. I’m really excited to go through the book with you guys – I need to remember how to be an Undivided Mom right now. If you have the book already, great! If you don’t, it will be included in the bundle sale, so that would be a great time to grab it.

Woohoo! So many fun things coming up in the next couple of months! I hope you’ll join us for them all!

On Full Plates and Holding It Together

God is Big

Every other month, I’m blessed to write over at the Allume blog. I’d love for you to join me over there today, where we are talking about full plates and holding it all together. It had been one of those weeks where all of the things on my plate had piled up so high they’d started falling off. A few weeks before, I would have told you that things were going well, that I could handle what had come my {Read More}

essentialoilsheader2

A few months ago, I surveyed you all to see what kind of posts you liked most. Incidentally, I also learned which kind of posts you liked least. Overwhelmingly, your “least liked” posts centered on essential oils. I totally get that. While essential oils are a huge part of our family life, they aren’t really the focus of this place. And that’s okay! I know, though, that there are a few of you who have asked to hear more about {Read More}

The Power in a Single Word

Change Your Day With One Word - KaysePratt.com

If you’ve been around this place for any length of time, you know that I’m a list girl. I like my schedule, my plans, my lists. I’ve got a to-do list going each day, and more planners than I can fill. The thing about lists, though, is that sometimes they move from organizing your day to ruling your heart. I’ve been the wife who barks orders, trying to get everyone into the car on time. I’ve been the mom who {Read More}

5 Fantastic Podcasts for Moms

5 Fantastic Podcasts for Moms - from KaysePratt.com

I’ve not been super successful with the whole giving up TV for Lent thing. Not gonna lie, there have been a few times in the evenings where Nathan refuses to go to sleep and I give in and watch one episode of Parenthood. Or NCIS. However, for the most part, I keep the TV off during the day. This is especially hard for me while I’m doing dishes or laundry – two extremely boring tasks, in my opinion. I need {Read More}
