I SEE YOU, SWEET MAMA. You’re running your home and doing a good job.
The house is picked up, dinner is delicious, and your husband trusts you to handle the details that arise. You know you should be satisfied with this life you have...but you’re hungry for more.
You want to be with your children, fully present and joyful. You want to laugh and hug and play instead of just teach and train and direct. But how?
You want to connect with your husband again and be his bride, not just his partner. You want to kiss him just because, have him want you like he used to, and rekindle that fire. But when?
Your soul is starving to have meaningful time with God, but life’s too loud for quiet time. You need more. But more what?
You’re tired of being tired and you’re ready for...something.
YOU NEED TO KNOW THAT WHAT YOU'RE DOING MATTERS.
It does. Oh, it really, really does. What you're doing matters and who you are matters even more.
And this life you're living? It can be full of all those things you want...right now.
I believe that you were created with a purpose and that by focusing your time on what truly matters, you’ll begin to thrive in the life you are living right now.
Your words are a comfort and so personal, just like God is speaking directly to me in His love. Thank you. ~Joy M.
I was having such a rough day, wondering if I could get anything right. Then God lead me to your blog and it’s like you were speaking right to me; I can do this, with God’s help! Thank you. ~Busy Mom of 4
Imagine waking up with the peace of knowing that you’re not wasting another moment of your life and that today counts.
You’ve got the tools at your disposal to take on the day and get to what really matters: romantic moments with your husband, joyful interactions with your children, and peaceful moments communing with God.
You're content because you know that you're living the life you were called to live with everything you've got.

HELLO, SWEET FRIEND! MY NAME IS LISA YVONNE...AND I GET IT.
I should have been blissfully happy. I’d created a home that ran efficiently, my family had all they needed, and everything was in its place.
My life was full but my heart felt empty.
I was exhausted from trying to do all the right things. Being a ‘good mom’ and ‘supportive wife’ and ‘godly woman’ was sapping the life out of me. I was always busy with a job, but never with a purpose.
And then I learned the freedom that comes from saying “No” and the power that comes from saying the right “Yes.” I set up systems to run the peripheral parts of my life and focused my attention on the relationships that meant the most to me.
I was finally living what truly mattered!
I started to laugh with my kids again. I was connecting with my husband in a way that was bringing our routine marriage to beautiful life. And my faith was blossoming like it never had before. I had joy and purpose.
AND YOU CAN, TOO!
Setting up easy-to-manage systems that oversee the parts of life that have to happen will free you up to be fully present for the parts of life you want to happen.
