Summary

Do you ever have times (or seasons or years), when you feel overwhelmed and like you've lost the joy in your home?
There have been times in my homemaking, when I’m fired up, inspired, encouraged, and ready to tackle each new day as it comes. Then there are times when I have zero motivation, I feel discouraged, and my joy has disappeared! Sadly, it feels like those days are more and more often.
So what’s a busy homemaker to do in hard seasons like this? What do we do on those days when we feel: Discouraged. Overwhelmed.  Burnt-out. Tired. Lacking Joy. Bored. Ready to do anything other than housework…
That's what we are going to dive into today's episode!

Book of the Week:
Disciplines of a Godly Woman by Deborah Hughes
I really like this book because it's written to all women. You don't have to be a wife or a mom or really get a lot out of it. The book is broken up into 5 sections: soul, character, relationships, ministry, and grace. So the book explores topics such as: the gospel, prayer, worship, community within the church, giving, and more. It also has a great appendix with some really good resources such as: hymns for your devotion time. It's been a few years since I've read this one, so I'm planning on going back and reading it again soon. If you are looking to start a women's Book study group, this one would be a great one to go through. And if you are in a couple's Book study, you could even temporarily break into two groups as the men go through the godly men one and you ladies go through this one. Or go through the godly family one together. I highly recommend it!
Thanks for Listening!
