Why I’ve fallen hard for creative bullet journaling

  In 2015, I began bullet journaling. I didn't use my BuJo for daily or weekly plans, but I kept all of my vision- & goal-setting exercises, Bible study notes, and quotes to remember in one well-loved journal with an index for easy reference.

Do we all really have the same 24 hours?

There's a popular saying that we all have the same number of hours in a day. Or to really make the point, we all have the same number of hours as Beyonce. The implication is that we all have the time to be superstars if we really want it and are willing to work to…

How to Work Smart, Not Hard

The following post is from Katie of Making This Home and Gadanke: I’m six months into this work at home mom gig, though I’ve worked from home for a few years. “Home” to me is an airplane hangar on a small but active runway. I can’t just hide in a basement and crank out my work…

The Productive Morning Routine I Never Expected

I've been a work-at-home mom from the moment I found out I was pregnant (since I was already working from home at that time), and for those 10 years I've lived by one simple rule: get up early and get as much done as possible in the early morning hours. While this might sound stressful…
