Kimberly made a resolution to become more organized and be more conscious of how she spent her time. She was so motivated to be organized! She energetically de-clutter her closets and cupboards of things she no longer needed nor wanted. She loved the freeing feeling that came from walking into her house and knowing where […]
I don’t have to tell you how fast paced life is because you’re probably running the race right now! Life is packed full of activity, but can you afford not to find five minutes of rest in your day? How do we find time to be still?
We live in an era where our plates are overflowing with commitments. More is expected of the woman than ever before. It’s so important to say Yes. Sometimes. But how, when, and why should you say No? And when do you say Yes? Consider one of these concepts to help you process the next request of you to add a commitment to your plate.
Clothes say a lot about us without even realizing it. Do you hoard clothes with an odd fear of parting with that shirt you’ve had for years? For me, clothes are a necessary evil.

Do you ever think that if you could just be more productive, life would be easier? Um, yes! But what if you realize it’s not necessarily having an improved filing system or balanced schedule that will make you more productive?

“I can’t get rid of it because my mother-in-law gave it to me.” Eeek.

Do you ever feel like your efforts at home go unnoticed? That they are taken for granted? We all have our roles at home for accomplishing household duties. Some families sit down and distinguish them, even having a chart to keep people accountable. In other families, the roles are assumed by default. What’s your role? […]
Weeds. The annoying green foliage that grows throughout your beautiful flowers and tomato plants. The foliage that we prepare to stifle even before it has the chance to germinate.
