Moms, Don’t Forget to Take Care of Yourself

Don’t forget to take some time this summer — this weekend, too — and take some time for MOM to be refreshed.

Six days do your work, but on the seventh day do not work, so that your ox and your donkey may rest, and so that the slave born in your household and the foreigner living among you may be refreshed. ~ Exodus 23:12 (NIV)

I will refresh the weary and satisfy the faint. ~ Jeremiah 31:25 (NIV)

Heather (as well as several of our other authors) recently attended a convention sponsored by the Texas Home School Coalition where she had the pleasure of meeting Charlotte Siems. She said that she was especially blessed by Charlotte’s encouragement that moms need to remember to take care of themselves so that they can better care for their families.

Charlotte shares about her exciting weekend at the convention in her T-Tapp Travel Diary. You can also connect with her on Facebook. Be sure to “like” her page!

Those of us who weren’t lucky enough to attend the convention can still benefit from Charlotte’s knowledge. They are offering audio recordings of the workshops for only $3 each! {There at the top, you’ll also see a class conducted by none other than our very own Bon Crowder.}

So, please remember to take some time for yourself to recharge. God, Himself,  set the example for us that we are not meant to work 24/7. We need that day off in order to be better moms, wives, friends…

…for in six days the LORD made the heavens and the earth, and on the seventh day he rested and was refreshed. ~ Exodus 31:17b (NIV)

Wishing you a restful {and refreshing} Lord’s Day!

  1. I had the privilege of meeting Charlotte in the speakers’ lounge. She was totally practicing what she preached: she was checking her ppt slides and commented, “Although I’m totally cool to do the whole talk without the slides.”

    Cool as a cucumber. Fabulous!

  2. I didn’t meet her, just took pictures. Now I wish I had, though! Can’t wait to hear her audios!
