"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

When you walk into a book store and see two women's books, whom you admire, sitting on the shelf. 😍 #goals #breakingbusy #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!!

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.

Library day!! Really looking forward to this one! Have you read it? #thefringehours @jessicanturner #reading #learning #growing

New month. New week. New book. Excited to dive into these pages. I've heard @jessicanturner has done an amazing job writing #thefringehours. Toddler sleeping, husband watching some man movie, and I'm curled up in bed reading while I ignore the laundry. Sounds like a plan for tonight. #laceyreads


Being a mother is hard.
Being my own boss is hard.
Being a wife is hard.
Finding time for myself is hard.
All these things are hard but all these things are also worth it. #worthit
I may not get a full 30 mins at one time to read my favorite books #thedoctrineandcovenants #teachingsofthepresidentsofthechurch #personaldevelopment
So I find those little pockets of time to read a verse, a chapter, something to calm my mind and feel peace to help me through the day.
Being a mom is worth it.
Being my own boss is worth it.
Being the wife of an amazingly awesome man is worth it.

I do make time for myself so I can be the best I can be for my family and my business ❤️ #createyourlifeproject2017 #theheartdynasty #itisworthit #thefringehours #pocketsoftime

This statement, from The Fringe Hours, is so very true & why I took a week off social media! #thefringehours #timemanagement

Reading The Fringe Hours by @jessicanturner I'm loving this book. It reminds me of #saygoodbyetosurvivalmode I enjoy the workbook aspect of it to. It's nice to have a place to process what you are learning. It's also nice to think about the things that fill me up & finding ways to fit those into my day. You should check it out!! @whitneysgully I think you'd enjoy this one too! #thefringehours #books #booknerd #reading #readingchallenge2017

Wishing my to-do list was blank😩 It's not though, and that's ok. I read a statement yesterday to write 6 of your priorities down and rank them. Then cross out 2-6. 😳 I was a little hesitant at first but after I thought about it I realized it's not likely that you will do 6 major tasks in one day aside from regular work and home tasks. Don't max out on tasks, max out on what matters. We create margin for magic when we eliminate excess. Do what matters😘

Reading such a great book right now about prioritizing time #thefringehours #learntosayno

Added this to my office inspiration board. It's from The Fringe Hours by Jessica N. Turner, a book that I really love. In need of all inspirational reminders this week! 🤔

"Some days you aren't going to get your makeup on, you will burn the cookies for the school bake sale, and you will spill wine on the rug. In our mess, God makes us strong. In your glorious imperfections, you can still shine beautifully bright . Embrace that truth. Stop trying to be everything for everyone and start investing in who and what really matters. " -page 50- by Jessica N. Turner in "The Fringe Hours" ( full disclosure- I am not completely finished reading it) I think this is a beautiful thought to carry into the holiday weekend. Breathe in grace and breathe out all that stress and self judgement. Happy (Good) Friday everyone . #spring2017 #theimperfecthomestead #easterweekend #thefringehours #friday #goodfriday

I'm currently reading the book "The Fringe Hours" and I'm loving it. It's reiterating the things that I'm currently doing to simplify my life but it reminds me to MAKE time for myself. We all have the same 24 hours in everyday. And each day there are bits of time here and there that become our "fringe hours." It's essential to make the most of those and do things for ourselves. We don't find extra time in our day. We have to make it. We have to make ourselves a priority. Don't forget to add yourself in the balance of life. If laundry or mopping doesn't make that balance don't sweat it. Do you. Fulfill your needs. Enjoy your life. That is the true balance. 💖 .
