Monday Meanderings…

I haven’t done these in awhile but I’m trying to be more ‘intentional’ in everything I do so I thought this would be a good place to start.

This is not following any set plan or order, just in the order that I come up with them. 🙂

Husband encouragement :

Supper ready when he gets home at night.

Lunches made for the week.

Get up with him and eat breakfast with him.

Go to bed at night, together, and pray together.

Children: training them up:

*Use a soft voice at all times.
