Time to move forward! – 3 in 30 November Goals!

3in30 Challenge

Last month, I made some progress on projects that I have been contemplating for a long time.  This month, I will be slowing down a bit because my husband’s birthday is next week and then, of course, we will be celebrating Thanksgiving.  So, with that said, here are my goals for this month:

  1. Keep working at developing systems for our home.  Last month I read Large Family Logistics and put the finishing touches (at least for now) on my Daily Routines.  This month, I am going to focus on refining my weekly schedule/routines.  Following the Large Family Logistics system assigns a specific focus to each day of the week (Monday is Laundry day, etc.).  I have already come up with a general outline of when these things work for our family (or at least when I think they should work best :) ).  Now, I need to spend time developing a list for what I need to do on those days so that I can “do the next thing”.
  2. Plan details for our Thanksgiving celebration.  We will be staying home for Thanksgiving this year, so I need to locate all of our food to prepare a big feast that will not make anyone sick!
  3. Begin studying and implementing the Power of a Praying Wife and the Power of a Praying Parent in my daily prayers.  I bought these books a while ago and have read the first chapter or so of each.  I would like to incorporate them into my daily prayers in a more intentional way.  I am participating in the Good Morning Girls study right now which takes care of my M-F quiet times, but I’m thinking that Saturday and Sunday would be a good time to start studying a chapter a week (from each book) and add my prayers to my prayer lists for each member of the family.

    Great goals. I loved Power of a Praying Wife and Parent. Sometimes when I am in a rush, I pick them up and randomally pray a prayer over my husband and kids.

    I have used the Time Warped Wife’s idea of daily coordinated jobs. If you want I could send you my chart I made. :)

    I’m excited that so many of us are going to do 3 in 30 this month. :)

    You’ve got great goals for this month. Reading Large Family Logistics helped me streamline some of my household chores, too.
