Taking Time

journal & gratitude book /// val marie paper

It's been tough for me finding time to mold my day with a newborn and that's something I'm okay with currently since work is still on the back burned until December but I've found it's really throwing off my usual time with God. I'm not perfect in this aspect but I would normally start my day in scripture, doing a devotional so adding Emery with no routine leaves me scrambling to get that time whenever I have 10 minutes to spare. I'm not sure if there's something else I can be doing to really build out that time, maybe even when Andrew gets home so its guaranteed he has the babe but I'm curious... do you ladies have suggestions?

Happy Monday!


  1. Nursing was a great time for me to focus and be quiet with the Lord and my bible. What about your pumping time? It is so hard to balance and find the time!!

  2. I usually read during my first nursing session of the morning or during his first nap of the day! I even just take 5 minutes while I'm eating breakfast. Once she starts getting into her own rhythm you'll be able to find a balance. Don't give up!

  3. I'm no expert and certainly don't have any children yet but how about listening to the bible with an app on your phone. theres one called Bible (its red) and you can listen to scriptures with some earphones or on some speakers. I know its not the same as actually meditating but its something!

  4. I don't have solutions because i'm struggling with finding balance again where I once excelled but wanted to thank you for the post!
