investing-yourself-give-others

Physical and mental exhaustion is nothing new to a busy mother. Somewhere in the journey to raising your responsible adults you will find times when you think, “How can I go on?”

It is the nature of our job to give and give until it hurts. Our name is the same and it's called countless of times during the day. Sometimes our husband's choose to call us by this name too. Mama. It's who we are. And what we do.

We take care of family and the home. We see to most every physical need. But when we've given all we have who takes care of us?

Sometimes we're our own worst enemy.

Does this sound familiar? 

We don't get enough sleep because we stay up late getting things done. We forget to sit down to eat a nourishing meal because we're still serving everyone else at the table. Take a few minutes to stretch or exercise because we're busy driving everyone else to their sport activities.

But the thing is – it's vitally important to stop every once in a while, even for 5-15 minutes, to refresh ourselves, fill ourselves up, to take care of ourselves, and maybe even spend a few minutes reading a book or sitting outside in the sun. As women, we have to stop and refuel. To pour back into ourselves so that we have the energy and the JOY to pour back into serving our families and the Lord. 

And that's Jamie of Homemaking Ministries has developed a 7 part audio series all about investing in yourself…all for God's Glory! (Find out how to get it for FREE below)

Taking the time to invest in myself, to care for my body, and invest in my spiritual life are all vital parts of being a homemaker. I need to take a little bit of time each time to invest in myself so that I have the energy and joy to pour back into my family…otherwise I might just face some severe burn out and face my days with a begrudging attitude instead of joy in the Lord!

Do you crave a little more energy, joy, and enthusiasm when facing your day? Do you wish that when you hear the kids stirring from their beds in the morning, that you had the energy and focus to greet that sound with joy and energy to tackle the rest of your day instead of dreary fatigue from too little sleep the night before?

This all starts with taking just a little bit of time to invest in yourself. This is a lesson I have learned the hard way after playing catch-up trying to get everything done…and then hitting a wall of tiredness, depression, and laziness. I want to greet my day with joy and energy! 

Throughout this 7 part audio series, Jamie is diving into all the aspects of taking care of ourselves (and why this truly matters if we want to have a thriving home and relationship with the Lord). In the series she talks about:

  • Avoiding burn out and letting go of GUILT when we do invest a little in ourselves
  • Making time for what you love (in 15 minutes a day)
  • Taking care of yourself – exercise and eating well
  • Investing in your Spiritual Life
  • Giving yourself GRACE…especially when life falls apart
  • Wrapping it all together for God's Glory!
