"But fear only holds us hostage from a better life. It prevents us from pursuing things that would bring us immense joy and satisfaction. Instead of just doing them, we procrastinate and make excuses, and ultimately fear holds us captive." @jessicanturner The Fringe Hours 🌟 Story of my life PS: I love reading in bed with my bedroom window open and a cool May breeze floating in....city sounds in the distance. #thefringehours

You know that moment when you realize as a wife & a mother, that 100% of your day is focused on those you love and take care of? Laundry, groceries, making sure that little human you love stays alive, fed and happy.
I'm not much of a reader, actually I can think of a million other things I would rather do than read, but this year I decided to spend More time in a state of rest. Away from technology, social media and tv screens. Giving myself a chance to decompress, breathe and unwind. My sweet friend, Karen, with @intentionalhome has started a book club and yup, that is what I'm going to do with my "me time"
I'm really loving this book by @jessicanturner #thefringehours

No doubt about it, this gift set is a Christmas favorite for all your girlfriends. (And ssshhh, it's on sale!) #TheFringeHours // Available at DaySpring.com.

How fun is this? My friend @jessicanturner's book #TheFringeHours is now available in @target!! We are totally toasting her tonight with the cookie treats she sent to celebrate! So fun!!

Sneaking in a little scrapbook time. #lucydarling #mymaryalice #thefringehours

Have you read this book? It's been on my reading list for months now and I finally got my turn to check it out from the library! Setting healthy boundaries and shifting my view on self-care has been a huge struggle, but baby steps.. One day the little baby steps will add up to a journey so I'm working on making each one count 😊 How do you make the most of your fringe hours? I would love any advice or tips so we can encourage each other on! #hollysbooklist #thefringehours

In finishing up the book The Fringe Hours Making Time for you by Jessica Turner, this manifesto found at the end of the book sums it all up.
If taking care of yourself is a struggle and you feel guilty about doing so it's time to let that feeling go.
You friend have much to offer this world and taking a little time to care for your mind, body and soul is the best thing you can do so you can accomplish all you are meant to accomplish.

As a SAHM (without a maid, darn it), my work surrounds me. Always.
.
But my soul craves things besides poopy pants and stacks of shoes by the door.
.

What's a chick to do?
.
Write anyway!
Dream anyway!
Learn anyway!
Feed the soul anyway!
.
So this morning I shooed my kids to the basement to watch a movie so I can write.
.

@jessicanturner would flash a thumbs up, I'm pretty sure. 👍🏽 Her book #thefringehours kicked my butt in the best way. 📚
.
What feeds YOUR soul?
What makes you come alive and feel like a million bucks? Or even a crisp $20? 😃

Step 1: Track your time for a week to see where your days are really going.

You can’t pour from an empty cup, as the saying goes.

“Making time for your passions will serve every area of your life well.” #thefringehours #bookupdate

God gave you those passions for a reason. It’s not a sin to use them. 😉 It may not be the season to use them to their full potential, but you should keep them fresh and alive, preparing yourself for that day.
#lifepassion #motherhood #makingtimeforme

Don’t compare your schedule to someone else’s. Her life is not your life, and her calling is not your calling. Allowing free time in your schedule is not a sign of weakness, it’s a sign of wisdom. ❤️ this book so far!

Current read! I’ve had this book for probably two years, and haven’t gotten around to reading it. Irony???
But I’m in a season where I think I realllly need it. So here goes!
POLL TIME: Have any of you read it? Do any of you *need* to read it? Get ready for some updates!

Some serious Christmas vibes happening over at @freshpaige // and some serious coffee drinking happening for me because I made the holiday line between 10pm - 3am last night when I thought I was going to "check email quick." People, there is nothing like being a mom of littles to force you to squeeze the life outta the time you have. I dare you to find some time to do what you love. I dare you to create deadlines for yourself when no one else will. It won't be easy (or clean or fit or organized maybe 😜) but your soul will thank you. ❤️ Thankful to all the women out there who inspire me daily 🙌 Also, for my West Michigan friends, the Chamber is doing something new this year and hosting an indoor market at the Harbor museum at the end of Washington every Saturday. (Just like the farmers market only with expanded handmade items!) I will be there a few times and can't wait! #thefringehours #choosejoy #mamahood

Starting this book tonight. Need it!

It’s cloudy & 53 degrees outside. Perfect weather for a book. #thefringehours

What are you currently reading?

Every time I write something about self care, I'm tempted to throw in a dozen caveats: but don't neglect the orphan crisis, and don't ignore poverty, and remember to serve your neighbors, and participate in church, and don't let your kids grow up to be jerks.
.
But I think that song is already beating through all of our minds with an overwhelming rhythm.
.
What we really need to know, y'all, is that Jesus adores us EVEN IN OUR REST. @jenhatmaker says that if it isn't true everywhere, it simply isn't true.
.
Only in America are we so obsessed with finding our calling + discerning God's perfect will + doing something meaningful for the kingdom by abdicating a "real job" and "living on mission."
.
Millions of people don't have the privilege of choosing their life's work and God isn't one cent less impressed with them for it.
.
So don't take it all so seriously, this Christian living stuff. Don't cling to your suffering, believing that to be the only authentic Christian experience. Choose to trust in a Love that liberates + provides + delights in your happiness.

Great books @Regranned from @she.hearts.books - Does anyone else have stack of books like this? This is evidence of my shameful tendency to, ahem, avoid doing what needs to be done.
Please tell me I’m not alone...
(@theardentbiblio - probably not what you had in mind for your procrastination photo challenge...but it’s my procrastination pile.)

Just got my first audio book! I'm SO excited!

Every night I go to bed with a list in my head of what I need and want to get done the next day.... the morning comes and I feel like that list goes out the window.... after it was lost, had a drink spilled on it & colored on then ripped up 😂... Sitting down to read is a dream (for me) at this point... BUT I can certainly find time to listen while nursing John, doing laundry etc!
I'm serious about making my desired future a reality! That's starts with this audio book!
Thank you @allissadavis for this book recommendation😘 .

I quit feeling guilty about my needed daily 20 minute nap a long time ago. But this book is making me feel even more validated 🙌 Basically, if we spend even a little time daily doing what we love (Me=sleep, coffee, reading, talking with friends, exercise), we fill up!! It's not selfish! You can't serve your family or perform your job on an empty tank. I dare you to even take 5 minutes today and totally devote it to what YOU want to do. I feel like lots of us go through seasons where we are so devoted to everyone else, we forget what we even like doing. I hope you find that thing that gives you life today! I'm about to do what I love right now 😴 see ya in 20! #readthis #mynightstand #mycozyfallhome

More books came today! 🎉 I'm still shocked that they were 99 cents each. Brand new. (Two of them hardcovers!) Written by some amazing writers. My book list has definitely grown exponentially as the year has gone on... but I think that's the case with most years. Too many books? Impossible. 📚 Although I am curious as to how many "to read" books I have in my pile right now... Tomorrow I shall count. And probably take a picture. 🙃 #bookproblems ? Nah. No such thing. 😉 #happymail #christianbooks #readallthebooks

Current Read: The Fringe Hours: Making Time for You. ⏰I love reading but often get out of the routine in Spring and Summer. I always read a ton when I fly and in the past two days I've read two books, both quick, fun reads. I am excited to be starting one of the books on my self-care/self-love reading list. I love books that help me to change my mindset or promote positivity and better myself. I am looking forward to learn how to make more time for me because who doesn't want more me time. Self-care and investing in yourself is so important! You can't pour from an empty cup.📚Would anyone be interested in doing a positive mindset/self-care/self-love book club? 📚
