31 days of living free: what is brave?

Be You Bravely // MOPS Sharpie Mug // 31 Days of Living Free: Rooted Love for Women Who Dream // Many Sparrows Blog

соловьиный край автобусы расписание москва железногорск I think you always need a dose of bravery when you read your words in front of a giant (well, to me!) room full of women.

Today at MOPS, I shared a devotional based on this blog post. How do we raise brave kids? Start by being brave mamas!

Sometimes, we let people put out the flames that God has set in our hearts.

In Matthew 5, verses 14-16, Jesus says,

You are the light of the world. A town built on a hill cannot be hidden. Neither do people light a lamp and put it under a bowl. Instead they put it on its stand, and it gives light to everyone in the house. In the same way, let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven.

And if we’re not careful, we get so busy in the act of mothering and weighed down by the weariness of the world, that little by little, our light gets snuffed out.

понятие финансов предприятий We have such a privilege and honor to influence the next generation to be world-changers. Being brave is simply letting God’s radical love flow out of our lives. It’s taking little steps of faith and falling into the arms of a Father who calls us by name. It’s knowing we’re worth more than many sparrows, so we don’t have to live in fear.

узоры гелевой ручкой Shine on, mamas. Your light shows those little hearts they can live free, too.

(Also, my sweater was thrifted for $3! My friend Erin has been blogging her 31 days on thrifting, and I’m totally loving her tips.)

The present is where actions are taken and progress is achieved. // Inspiration & Organizational Tips for Women // Many Sparrows Blog

мтс перевод средств Every once in awhile, I hear someone speak and think, “YES. MORE OF THAT.”

That’s how I feel every time I listen to Elizabeth Hagen. (She inspired me to write this popular post.) I’m a big fan of Elizabeth’s mother, my loveliest 90-year-old friend from church, and I’m always thrilled when Elizabeth comes to visit. She has a firework personality that’s just so…contagious. She’s just the type of woman who gets things done and encourages you to meet your goals, too. At one point, she was a busy mama to four kids under the age of five. (Reason to love her even more? Her family is a beautiful mix of bio and adopted children.) Now that her kids are grown, she’s a business owner, professional organizer, keynote speaker, and author of multiple bestselling books.

I wish I could introduce you to Elizabeth in person so you could soak up her goodness! I can’t (boo) but how’s a GIVEAWAY for a consolation prize? ледовый дворец саров массовое катание расписание 2015 Elizabeth feels passionately about equipping women and generously gave me a couple copies of her amazing books, Organize with Confidence (a $79 value) and Confidence: Now is Your Time ($20 value). Whether you’re a stay-at-home mom or a business owner or anything in between, her organizational ingenuity will help you succeed while keeping your heart grounded.

http://acasinhabrincalhona.com/webanalyze/assets/troksevazin-instruktsiya-gel.html троксевазин инструкция гель Do you ever wonder at the end of the day, “Just exactly what did I do today?

You’re not alone.

I often hear people comment, “There aren’t enough hours in the day.” An unplanned day can allow the time to fly by without getting done what we need to accomplish.

It’s important to realize that there are 24 hours in a day and that this is not going to change any time soon! There is enough time in the day when you focus on doing what’s important.

Figure out what you are really, really good at — where your “expertise” lies. Do those things and either get rid of the other tasks or delegate them to someone else.

Have you noticed when you are doing an activity or work you love that life is good? That you’re happy with yourself? That you’re kinder to others?

справка вместо больничного Often there is something getting in the way of doing what you love to do. Perhaps you are focusing on an event from the past. Staying focused on the past can keep you paralyzed.

In the Biblical story about Lot and his wife, God told them to leave the sinful towns of Sodom and Gomorrah and not look back. Lot was able to walk away but as his wife left the cities, she turned back and was frozen forever into a pillar of salt.

This is what happens to us when we spend too much time looking back. We become frozen in time.

While it’s important to learn from the past, let’s stop focusing on what’s behind and start moving forward in the present.

Is now the time for you to start looking forward and begin really enjoying your life? I hope so!

Start today with one small step in dealing with a negative past event, making changes for the better, and looking forward positively to the wonderful life you’re creating!

31 days of living free: free to have fun

You Deserve All The Applauds // 31 Days of Living Free // Many Sparrows

I know so many fierce women who are holding it down at the office, at home, and in their communities. Can I just say, GET IT, GIRL.

You ladies know who you are. You’re the unsung heroes who make everything work. You’re the first one awake and the last one to sleep. You’re creative and messy and organized and you get stuff done. You deserve all the applauds and all the first-bumps. I see you, sister.

You know what I forget to do sometimes?

I forget to live free and have fun.

Which is a total bummer, because I really like gettin’ my dance on in the living room to T-Swift.

31 days of living free: mornings

How to REALLY Start Your Morning Well // 31 Days of Living Free: Rooted Love for Women Who Dream | Many Sparrows Blog. Faith encouragement for women.

My two little people are tucked away, dreaming, and I’m up after a busy weekend, looking at my mess (what else is new?) and trying to commit to this whole blogging-for 31-straight-days thing.

And I’m thinking about the week ahead. I’m thinking about all the busy that tends to sneak its way into my heart.

I’m thinking that mornings always come way too early.

Hi, I’m Kayla, and I’m not a morning person.

And then I remember the single best thing I ever do in the morning: Acknowledge that the day isn’t mine.

This is the day the Lord has made. We will rejoice and be glad in it.

Even if it’s as I’m fumbling for my Coke-bottle glasses and stumbling down the hall with a toddler monkey-gripping to my pajama-clad leg, I find that when I acknowledge that the Creator who set the stars in the sky has brought another sunrise into my life, my heart is better tuned for whatever the day brings.

I think we find Jesus at the intersection of tired and thankful.

I’m easily distracted and my mind starts tallying to-do lists before the first cup of coffee has been poured. I don’t always remember God in the morning. Or throughout the day.

Sometimes it’s small steps toward getting all of my heart in-step with Him.

Spending time with God or even just reciting a prayer (sometimes all I have in me is — God, today is yours or God, I need your help) is nothing new. I mean, it’s as ancient as any faith. In Scot McKnight’s The Jesus Creed, he writes about how daily, when awaking and when retiring, followers of Judaism, for centuries upon centuries, have recited aloud a creed. This creed is lifted from the Bible (Deuteronomy 6:4-9) along with two other texts.

Hear (shema), O Israel: The Lord our God, the Lord is one. Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength. These commandments that I give you today are to be upon your hearts. Impress them on your children. Talk about them when you sit at home and when you walk along the road, when you lie down and when you get up. Tie them as symbols on your hands and bind them on your foreheads. Write them on the door frames of your houses and on your gates.

The Shema is is the first prayer taught to Jewish Children, and the prayer exemplifies their faith. When Jesus (a practicing Jew) met an expert in the law who asked, “Of all the commandments, which is the most important?” Jesus answered by reciting the Shema first and added “love your neighbor as yourself.” McKnight calls this Jesus Creed, and says when Jesus did this, he transformed the Shema, reshaping the spiritual core of his followers.

Hear O Israel, the Lord our God, the Lord is One. Love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, with all your mind, and with all your strength. The second is this: Love your neighbor as yourself. There is no commandment greater than these (Mark 12:29-31).

I’m ready to be more intentional in honoring God in my heart, and I think I’ll be daily resetting by praying the scripture above — before grabbing my phone and squinting my blurry eyes to make sure I don’t have any important texts or e-mails waiting.

I’m not sure there’s anything more freeing than living intentionally in heaping amounts of life-giving truth.

“The soul formation element of the Jesus Creed is reciting it daily — morning, midday and evening/bedtime — so that it works its way its ways into your bones. In this way it comes to mind when we most need it — on the highway while driving, in the home when tempted to argue, in the neighborhood when someone taxes our patience, with children when they are — well, children. It comes to mind only when it has been recited often enough to attach itself to us as ligaments do to bones.” – Scott McKnight

(This week, I’ve been diving into what it might look like to live free in our hearts. The upcoming weeks this month will focus on living free at home, at work, and at church.)
