Wouldn’t it be cool if all women knew…
that you set the temperature in your home
you see the world, not as it is, but as you are
it always starts with you- deciding how and when you show up- for yourself and for others
I would love to tell you more about what
investing in yourself means to me…
What are other women saying??
“God created us with a natural instinct of taking care of others but I have to choose not to believe He wants us to put our family before ourselves, after all, He did create our bodies in His image. For a long time, I did this and learned I was putting myself at a disadvantage but my husband and daughter were the ones who suffered the most. Our relationship with Christ should be the most important reason for wanting to better ourselves. I’ve seen it over and over where ladies are seeking a change and turn to a new diet plan or workout program. One of two things happen; they quit or it quickly becomes their idle because they have not or they just may think they have found joy in what their heart is deeply desiring. We as women are so guilty of comparing ourselves. Whether it’s her confidence, smile, body, whatever… we’ve all done it. I fell like this is when Satan really attacks us because we are so exhausted of taking care of everyone and everything else we forget about our own self or we have no clue just how much we are capable of investing in ourselves that we don’t even try.
Thank you, Kari, for being obedient in sharing how the Lord pricks your heart. Being a wife and mother along with trying to find yourself or “invest” in yourself is so very hard. I’m sure many ladies struggle with this more than they like to admit but at the end of the day, for me, the only thing it comes down to is discipline. When I finally learned what true discipline meant, plus the benefits of investing in my health (spiritually, mentally, physically) I felt as if God cleared my vision of who it is He wants me to be. It’s important, I believe, as ladies to know that we all struggle. There is not one of us that is perfect or better than the other. We are all going to have bad days and make bad decisions and that’s ok but when we get to a place of complacency with excuses that is not ok. It is very easy to make the excuses of not having time, not having funds, not knowing the first step to take, etc. but this is when the power of sisterhood comes in. The power of accountability!”- Morgan
