"Trust in the Lord with all your heart;
do not depend on your own understanding.
Seek His will in all you do,
and He will show you which path to take."
~~Proverbs 3:5-6~~
I am a wife, a mother, a daughter, a sister, and a friend. Jesus is Lord of my life and I strive daily to draw closer to Him. I love being a homemaker---taking care of my family and home. I enjoy couponing, cleaning, and cooking. I love to get the best deal on everything and find that yard sales and thrift stores are the perfect places for that. I have recently felt lead to write a Bible study and have been working on it in my spare time. I truly enjoy leading women's groups as we all seek to grow closer to the Lord. Grab a cup of coffee and enjoy reading about what happens as I strive do all of this.

The Homekeeper's Journal

In My Winter Kitchen its time to ……….
Clean the cabinet doors and straighten the cabinet that holds all the cups and glasses.  
My biggest Time-Waster seems to be ……..
These days?  Sleeping in.  I actually love mornings and the earlier the better.  I seem to accomplish so much in the early hours of the day.  Sleeping in makes me feel as if I am wasting precious time.
I do/do not view Time as a gift from God and here is why……
I view every second that I am alive as a gift from God.  I have been made painfully aware in the last ten years just how short life is.  Time is a precious commodity and should be treated as such.
When others are slow or dawdle I ………
I get impatient.  I want to be patient with others, but people being  poky drives me NUTS.  I am working on this one area of my life.  If people do not do things at the speed I want them to do it or at the speed I would do something...IT IS OKAY.  Now I just need to repeat that to myself every 30 minutes of each day.  
One way that I make good use of time in my household is ….. 
I try to make every action count.  If I leave a room I take anything with me that belongs somewhere in the direction I am headed.  I also use the time that appliances are working to do things.  If I start the dishwasher I find a chore that I can do in the time it takes for it to wash the dishes.
