Mornings have been getting rougher and rougher around here it seems as the little ones in my home are waking earlier and earlier. I love quiet mornings to get ready for the day - and some things were just not working.
I've tried quite a few things - but God brought this idea to mind as something I'd never tried. One of the things I especially want to accomplish in the quiet morning is my time with God - my Quiet Time with Him. So, I decided to create a basket of things that my children could use to have some of their own Quiet Time with Him.
I did not buy anything to do this - just went around our home and pulled out things that I thought might work. I explained it to my girls and have watched them head back to it morning after morning over the past week. They've also been interested other times of day - but I'm hoping to reserve it for our morning needs.
We've only been at this a week - but already I'm so encouraged by their interest and the help it has been in our mornings!
