Study console

I’ve decided that scripture study works while my kids eat their breakfast so I made room for the study console that holds our study materials to be put by the kitchen table. Plus I’ve been trying this new idea of having morning devotionals with the chart below we shall see how it goes. I’ve got scriptures, church magazines, For the Strength of Youth pamphlets, gospel art kit that has pictures of the scripture stories, family history books, preach my gospel, and church music...

Thanksgiving Village Gratitude Tree

The kids and I came up with an idea to have a gratitude tree outside on our front door and let our neighbors “leaf” their mark on our tree of what they are grateful for. All you have to do is pickup a leaf on your way over and I have a marker and tape next to the door and you can tape it up. I still have plans to do our own personal family tree inside but we wanted to spread the idea around to others to...

November Value “Self-Discipline and Moderation”

I’m ready to tackle this value this month. It’s appropriate for the holidays coming up and making sure we are disciplined enough and use all these in moderation. I added “Methods” to my board because I was finding that we weren’t applying the value as much and weren’t being reminded of it enough even though I have this ginormous chalkboard in my family...

Who else wants to avoid the overwhelm of being a mom during the holidays?

Hello Moms! Are you ready for the craziness of the holidays coming up? Are you overwhelmed about all the things you need to do as a mom then on top of that, all you have to do for the holidays? Well I am excited to announce a two part workshop where I will teach you how to use Mind Organization for Moms. What is Mind Organization for Moms? Click here to read more in depth about it. About 2 years ago, I teamed up with April Perry, co-founder of Power of Moms, and began to teach this information to other moms as well as plan and facilitate 2 day “Power of Mom Retreats”. This is what April Perry, creator of this wonderful program, has to say about it: Let me guess…you’re pretty stressed out sometimes. You have hundreds of things on your mind and dozens of balls in the air and even though you feel like you’re busy every minute, you can’t seem to make a dent in your “to do” list. Am I close? Mothers are the busiest group of multi-taskers out there, and if anyone needs their minds organized, it’s us! We want to relax and enjoy our families, but is it possible to have a great time with our loved ones AND respond to all the pressing demands? Absolutely. Although I can’t make “the madness” stop, I CAN teach you how to get your brain in order so that you will feel completely almost on top of your life once and for all. Sound like a plan? Based on the best-selling book Getting Things DoneĀ®, by David Allen, I (April) have put together a simple, powerful program designed specifically for busy mothers. I’ve included mom-friendly instructions, photos, and checklists to support you every step of the way. Here is a picture of my system that I used. I’ve changed my system since then and have tweaked it over the last 2 years that I have been using the Mind Organization for Moms system. What I would like to do is give you access to this wonderful system as well as explain to you, in two in-person workshops, what I’ve found works for me to simplify how I manage all my “Mom” duties and avoid all the stress and overwhelm that we often experience as moms… especially around the holidays. Price The regular price for just the Mind Organization for Moms package is $75, NOT including any personal training on how to quickly use the system to unclutter your mind and simplify your life. The price to attend the 2 session workshop is normally $50 in addition to the Mind Organization for Moms system. However, I worked out a deal with April so you can get the system and the 2 in-person workshop sessions for $75 total. That’s $50 off the regular price for the system and the two session workshop. Here’s how you can attend: 1- Go here and create a login for the PowerOfMoms website. 2- Get the Mind Organization for Moms system for $38 (you must be logged in to see this special price) 3- Email me to let me know that you’ll be joining us for this mind blowing workshop. Session 1: In the first session, we will introduce the program to you, so you can walk away with a very real plan of how to unclutter your mind and release the stress and feelings of being overwhelmed (there is one little trick that makes this happen much easier than you think!). You will leave with the tools to collect and process all...
