I have been trying to find a morning routine that suits me and the needs of my family for a while.  I have been stuck in a bit of a rut in my thinking with the only solution I have been able to come up with is to wake up earlier.  Well, that has limited benefits!!

 

These are the things I want to achieve in my morning routine

 

  • Bible Time with possibly some general reading as well
  • Exercise
  • ½ hour housework
  • Time with my youngest two in their Quiet Time training/discipleship
  • Breakfast, emails, blogging

 

It is a matter of finding the right order and timing to fit in with what everyone else is doing. This morning it dawned on me so I’m setting myself a new routine.

 

5.00 – 5.30am  Bible Time 

(if I wake earlier, which is probably, I can spend some time reading my other reading material)

 

5.30 – 6.00am  Housework (put my shoes on)

 

6.00 – 6.30am Exercise

 

6.30 – 7.00am Shower

 

7.00 – 7.30am Be available to my youngest two for discipleship

 

7.30 – 8.00am  Breakfast, emails, blogging

 

8.00am   Family Relationship time starts with family devotions

 

 

It is hard to believe that it takes me 3 hours to do all this but that is reality and I need to plan accordingly.
