I recently stumbled upon a great series called “Maximize Your Mornings“. I’ve never considered myself a morning person, but the more I considered it, the more I realized, even though I like staying up late at night, I don’t get anything “productive” done. Once the sun sets, I rarely clean, I almost never do my devotions, I don’t study my Children’s Ministry lessons, or anything along those lines. I surf the internet, I get caught up on my blog reading (hey, there are a lot of good blogs out there!), I watch television, and I spend an inordinate amount of time editing my pictures and uploading them to Snapfish.
On the other hand, in the mornings, once I shake the cobwebs loose — I straighten up on auto-pilot, I read helpful things, I’m drawn to my Bible and more. I’m inspired to write on my blog and get the to-do list checked off pretty quickly. I just downloaded Kat’s free e-book to Maximize my Mornings, and I encourage you to do the same! I’ll be keeping you updated on my progress in a new series on this blog, updated each Monday (check out the first week here). Stay tuned!
In the meantime, I’ll leave you with some of my favorite quiet time books (besides the Bible, of course!). Let me know your favorites as well!
My favorite quiet time books:
Power of the Praying Wife by Stormie O’Martian
