Day B- Believe and begin. You might want to get a notebook to keep all of your challenges in because we will be referring back to them in the future. Don't worry about going out and buying one, just use whatever you have. It's not important to have some big fancy pretty one, it's just important to have a place to keep it all together for easy reference.
Spiritual Challenge B- Believe that you can do all things through Christ. Don't let yourself get overwhelmed thinking about all you want (or need) to get done. Matthew 19:26b "With man this is impossible, but with God all things are possible." By yourself it might be impossible to get it done, but with God's strength and wisdom, you CAN do it! Seek God's guidance during this journey and follow His leading. He wants what is best for you and will help you to achieve it, if you will only lean on Him. Pray to God and pour your heart out to Him. Ask Him for guidance, seek His will and then follow His leading.
Physical Challenge B - Begin to make your to do lists. We are going to make 3-4 seperate to do lists: one for daily tasks, one for bi-weekly, one for weekly and one for monthly. These are pretty self explanatory but I'll say it anyway. List all those things you need to do every day on your daily list, the things that only need done once a week on your weekly list, and so on. We are going to list everything we can think of that needs done: Bible time, school, sweeping, mopping, meals, time to prepare for the next day, washing laundry, dusting, putting away laundry, etc. If you need ideas to get your list started, you can check out this list. I said 3-4 because I like to do some chores biweekly but some of you may not, so make these lists to fit your needs. This is all about what works for you and your family. All of our lists will be different and that is good because we are all different. I want you to tailor this plan to fit you, not just follow somebody else's list. However, don't forget to include those things hubby told you on Day A that he would like to have done. It's important to respect his wishes and be his helpmeet. Ok, that's it, so go get your pencil and paper and get busy. :)
How did Day A go? I'm anxious to hear from you. I really want to know if this is helpful to you, if you don't understand any of it or if there is anything else I can do to improve it. So leave me a comment and let me know how it's going and what you think.
