Monthly Encouragement for REAL Moms

This time of year is always so busy for our family. School is in full swing along with all of the activities that brings, we have several birthdays and our anniversary, then comes Halloween and Thanksgiving and Christmas. I finally have time to collapse once January rolls around again. 

I get so frustrated with myself when things get crazy because I end up racing through the days from one “Have to” to the next, when I KNOW there is a better way.  Last night I decided to take some time to search for some ways to slow down and be intentional about savoring this life that God has given me. I miss so much of the beauty when I am only focused on my To Do list. I’m guessing that I am not the only one who feels this way, so I am sharing my finds with you. <3

John 10

An abundant life. That is the gift we’ve been given through Christ. I titled this post Encouragement for REAL moms because that’s what we all are. Perfect might work on Pinterest, but not in everyday life. REAL also stands for Refreshing Encouragement for an Abundant Life. I hope these sites encourage you as much as they have me! 

His Mercy is New is sharing 31 Days of Praying the Scriptures for Your Family. There is an October prayer calendar to print, and also some prayer bookmarks. I am excited about her new Advent Prayer Journal for Moms that just came out.

The Purposeful Mom offers 31 Days of Hope for Moms: Biblical Encouragement and Practical Help for Challenging Moments.

Hugs and Punches has created a beautiful memory verse phone lock screen for her subscribers. (I didn’t even know you could do that!)

Worshipful Living put together a Fall Management Binder that includes sermon and quiet time printables.

There are some Monster-themed Lessons at Made 2 B Creative that would be fun to do with your kiddos this time of year. They deal with pride, selfishness, and jealousy.

How long has it been since you colored with your child? Print out this Ecclesiastes coloring page and hang it on the fridge when you are done.

On the practical side, there is a Super Duper Meal Planning Round-Up over at Diamonds in the Rough.

Ephesians 3

All of these links, and more, can be found on my Encouragement for REAL Moms Pinterest Board.


How do YOU slow down and savor the moments God gives you?

{Review} My Christmas Wish List Devotional Prayer Journal for Kids

Girl writing a Christmas letter for Santa

Are you looking for a simple way to focus your child’s mind on what really matters this holiday season? I am so tickled about My Christmas Wish List, a devotional prayer journal created by Heather of Upside Down Homeschooling. The colors, the graphics, the layout … it makes me happy just to look at it!

The 15-day journal is divided into five sections: Obedience, Love, Joy, Charity, and Peace. Each day has scripture to read, a prayer prompt, and a fun activity that involves encouraging or serving others. The daily assignments follow a WISH acronym:

There are extra activities at the end that include copywork, coloring pages and a nativity set to cut out. I consider this journal a gem because most of the devotionals I’ve found for younger ones are either very generic (same type of activity each day just with a different picture & verse), or too complicated for this easily-overwhelmed momma.

My Christmas Wish is on sale for only $2.99 (regularly $7.99)! Such a small price for the opportunity to point your child to Christ all December long.

As a BONUS,  purchases made in November will come with 2 FREE holiday webinars: 9 Stress Busters for the Holidays and The Wonder of God’s Love for Christmas
