Finding Balance at Home with Family and Work
Today I’ve over on Young Wife’s Guide sharing my thoughts about finding balance at home with family and work. Here’s a little peak at what I’m sharing:
I characterize myself as a stay-at-home/work-at-home wife, mom and homemaker. Even typing all that out makes me exhausted!
I’m a wife and mom first
My family is my greatest priority. Tending to the needs of my husband and children is a lot of work but the rewards are so great.
I have a strong marriage built on faith, love, trust and friendship. I’m raising three little ones who literally rely on me for all of their daily needs to be met, but they fill my heart to the brim with so much love and joy it’s almost too much.
Sure I don’t always enjoy every single thing about this season of raising three under the age of four but the longer I’m working in this gig, the more I see God working through them and me.
I’m a homemaker second
Caring for and maintaining a home that doesn’t look like a tornado just blew through it, takes a lot of work. The laundry, the food to make, the dishes to clean, the floors to sweep… it’s never ending. It feels like it’s unappreciated work, especially when the freshly mopped floors are a magnet for crumbs and spills, but I’m constantly reminded of the importance of how home shapes the family.
Finally, I’m an entrepreneur third
I work from home on writing, projects and other blog related work. It’s work but it’s also my creative outlet and something that helps keep me balanced. It also helps to bless our family financially.
I write in the early morning hours, nap times and work on the computer after the kids go to bed. Some days I even use the ever eager grandmother so I can work during the day too.
So how do I tend to marriage and my children, create a haven at home and work all while seeking to glorify God?
