This summer has been all about relaxing and recharging for my kids and me.
And now, as the Back to School frenzy is ramping up I’m even more grateful I gave myself this season of reprieve from the onslaught of busyness and constant “go-go-go”….
Because now, I’m excited about the pace quickening a bit. I want to jump back into my own work with more focus. I’m ready to get more productive and manage a faster-paced schedule.
But I also don’t want to spiral into the extreme on that side.
I don’t want to ping-pong into overwhelm or frazzled living either.
So, I decided put together a mini-series for the blog beginning next week about how to maximize productivity without sacrificing our sanity. Because I need to proactively order my schedule in the coming months, too!
Does that happen to sound good to anyone else out there?! 😉
In the coming weeks I want to tackle that central desire that I believe most of us share- how to be in the active, high-productivity stretches of our days without sacrificing our inner well-being to the throne of busyness.
This 4 week mini-series will begin next week and is jam-packed with practical ways we can maintain our own well being while having the energy and clarity we need for our everyday life.
But before I sign off for today, I want to share about a book, Give Your Child the World, written by my dear friend, Jamie Martin of Simple Homeschool.
Even though Jamie is a homeschooling mama and her book was written with that audience in mind- my own copy is dog-eared and noted-up in the margins because I’m a firm believer that regardless of how your children are educated- the family is still the most important place for life-time learning!
Give Your Child the World is a toolkit resource kind of book that weaves Jamie’s personal experience using books and stories to guide her children toward discovering the world – in culture, geography and the landscape of the human heart.
I hope to begin making time for family read-alongs this year and her book has given me great ideas on where to begin.
Maybe this book is worth a look for you, too?
This week, I’d love to give 4 of my WellGrounded Mamas a copy of Jamie’s book, on me!
