June Evaluation

  • Spend at least 10 minutes praying daily- God has definitely grown my prayer time this month, some days have more prayer time than others, but every moment praying is a blessing
  • Spend at least 10 minutes reading and reflecting on the Bible daily- Most days this happened
  • Memorize verses with the kids - working on this during school time
  • Have extended prayer times 4 times during the year- Jim has had 2 and I have had 2
  • Read Christian books (Jim- 1 (not school related), Emmie- 3)- 1 for me so far
  • Pray together daily- YES! 
  • Go out for a date once a week- Sadly No

  • Keep up with my calendar- Not as good at this this month

  • Blog 1-2 days a week- Yes! God has been gracious in this
  • Mild Exercise twice a week- Got some in, but not as much as I would have liked
  • Maintain weight until birth- Definitely gained this month, baby is growing a LOT!
  • Lose weight after giving birth- 
June went well over all. Jim and I were blessed with a nice time away. The kids had VBS and we're still working through school. It's been a busy month with life in general. I also got to host Childbirth Conversations which is always a blessing and I'm really desiring to be more involved in growing this. We're still struggling to figure out daily life as we wait for baby to make needed adjustments. We're still working on growing our Norwex business and how that plays into our current life. We're also growing in seeking God and what He has for our family. God is constantly showing us more about ourselves and teaching us to follow Him in everything, even when it doesn't make sense. It's been a good month.

How was your June?
