 Do we really need a schedule for our day??? I am faced with this very thought today and I find the answer to be most definitely we all do.  I have gone about my days not having a good schedule and I find that those days are the ones that hold the most chaos.  After so many years I finally have to be a big girl about it and say......YES LORI NEEDS TO HAVE EACH OF HER DAYS SCHEDULED!!!

 So where to begin on this schedule journey.....The first place I went to was....Google search and typed in schedules and I have to say that experience was quite over whelming.  And then I remembered that yesterday I posted about using The Household Planner and realized that I had the answer to my scheduling issue but I just need to be patient till I get it all downloaded.  All I can say at this point is........DAH!!!!! So continuing on we will talk a little about the way we all need to be more on top of our scheduling and why.
 I feel a lot of us are really looking for ways to be a stronger person, or maybe less forgetful and more productive.  We search for ways to have better self esteem, less depressed and more happy about who we really are, and more confident in our God given talents.  Bottom line is this.....we all just look for ways to be better at something because we are feeling inadequate about ourselves at that given time in our life.

 The more I read about what I need to be a better person, mom, teacher and wife, the more I keep finding that on top of the list is the need to get scheduled & organized.....or vice virsa. That if I want to feel better about what or who I am.....I  need to get the clutter & chaos out so that I can think clearly and be able to put my daily events in line. And then....HERE IS THE MOST IMPORTANT PART.....I need to keep that schedule going everyday so that my mind is being taught to do the right thing day after day.  The key to having a more productive and sane day is to have a plan in place and know where we are going to be and at what time.  A schedule or daily planner is definitely the first step of many on my Goals about yours????

  To have faith is just knowing or believing that things are going to be okay. That no matter how difficult things get or how many trials & tribulations I go through....I know that by Gods grace n love I will be okay.

  Some people call it blind faith and others may even say I'm crazy and not understand why I continue on going through with what I am dealing with. I just tell them that deep down in my heart I feel confident that God will not let me down and that he will see my through what ever I'm going through.

Hebrews 11:1 {NCV}
Faith means being sure of the things we hope for and
knowing that something is real even if we do not see it.

How do you define your FAITH????

 Wow! I looked at the calender this morning and realized that we are almost done with first month of 2012. Time does really fly by when we are all having fun, or working hard, or trying to re-organize ourselves for the new year......

 I have made a very big GOAL for this year and that is to get everything organized and running efficiently for myself and my family.  I have spent so much time in total chaos most of my life that I am literally exhausted.  I have vowed to say NO MORE! and end it now. 

 With that said....I have taken a few weeks of this first month to find a few tools to start using to help me get to where I need to be. I love using Google search and started first by searching for a great planning tool for my individual day, week & month at a glance. The Household Planner for Busy Moms was the perfect fit. FlyLady.Net is also another wonderful site to get great planning tools and I highly recommend both to start you on your way along with me.

 I have decided to do some major DE-cluttering of our household and everything else that seems to be bogging us down. Please join me on this journey and share what you are doing to make 2012 a great year too.

Today I am restarting my 31 Days of Faith Journey with Tracie from After reading her day 1 post I knew that God had brought me here and why. I am on a journey to renew my faith and strength in the Lord above. There was a time not too long ago that I was a very strong women, in love with the Lord  and very strong in my beliefs. All of my days were filled with song n praise and a outward faith that no one could miss....Then life decided to step in the way and completely turn my world upside down.  My faith was tested n tested again. So much that all that was left was a big hole of sadness and a hunger to regain my passion for my God and the purpose he has for me.
Here is the link and I ask you to follow along as a regain that strength, faith and passion I've lost touch with.
