One of the things that I’ve done with my kids during extended breaks (and should probably implement on a more consistent basis) is a chore chart. We’ve been doing this for the past two years and it helps give more purpose and structure to our long days at home.
When I first started seeing my counselor, one of the things she recommended was that I learn how to take care of myself. I have found this simple truth, to be so very helpful while we’ve been on lockdown the past few weeks. Before I could take care of others, I needed to learn how to take care of me.
Hi! I’m Marissa, wife, mother and Christ-follower. I always thought I’d start a blog when I had accomplished something great in life. When I had reached the top of the proverbial “ladder of success” or had finally made a name for myself. Instead, I am writing this from the deepest valley that I have ever found myself in in my entire life. I may be down, but I am continually looking up. Looking up to a Savior who saves, a Comforter who comforts, a Redeemer who redeems and a Creator who can make beauty from these ashes. Welcome to Beautifully Broken, a place where God transforms brokenness into beauty.
