BFS #119 Be all that you can be (US Army)

Memory Verse: 1 John 4:16 (NIV)

And so we know and rely on the love God has for us. God is love. Whoever lives in love lives in God, and God in him.

Intro: Sometime “being all you can be” is a challenge. We are trying to balance being a godly wife, mother, teacher, keeper of the home, and much more. None of us are perfect and we all struggle in our own ways with being able to achieve what we feel needs to get done.

Assignment: This week I thought we could share what great ways we have found to help with all we have to do. Besides the obvious getting face down in front of God, what have you found that works? Have you done a great bible study that deals with this area? Do you have a certain “thing” that really helps you like a planner or gadget? Do you have a certain bible verse that just speaks to you and you have it posted so you see it all the time? Is there a website that is really valuable to you in this area? What do you do that if someone else found out about it, they could benefit from it?

I thought I would post some of the useful websites I visit often:

orgjunkie Although she has a lot of great posts on organization, I love her Menu Planning Monday. Menu Planning helps me by taking away one thing I have to think about each day. Even if I don't have a day by day meal plan, if I just have a plan for 7 meals and the things on hand for those seven meals it helps me. I like to visit her site on Mondays to get menu ideas.

biblicalwomanhood I visit her site often for encouragement, advice, tips and recipes. To add the money saving ideas, I visit her other site: moneysavingmom

I have found that a planner is very useful in order for me to remember things from day to day. Although I have not found the perfect planner and am just using one from Walmart right now, using any planner has been great. Any ideas on a good planner anyone?

I am looking forward to seeing what everyone else has posted.
