Hello Mornings!

It has been several weeks since I last checked in with everyone on how our household is doing with the Hello Mornings Challenge.  I am very proud to say that we are doing VERY well.  I have stayed really consistent with my 6:45 am wake up call, which gives me about 30 minutes of prayer time before the girls come downstairs.  We then all head to the kitchen together for breakfast and a devotion.  This has really made our mornings go much smoother.

I often play music while I am at home during the day.  I tend to listen to the same Christian artists.  After listening to some of Kat's suggestions in her ebook, I found a new artist that has great lyrics for worship, Phil Wickham.  I have also been a long time fan of Jeremy Camp and he just came out with a great worship album called We Cry Out; The Worship Project.  It is excellent! It has some of my absolutely favorite songs from church that always move me.

A little tidbit that you may not know about me:  I HATE exercise!  But as I continue to grow old older, the metabolism just isn't what it used to be!  A few weeks ago a Zumba class started at our grade school just down the street.  I signed up and have actually been enjoying it.  I've lost 3 pounds!  Which is a very good thing, because some pants were getting a little tight!  Actually enjoying an exercise routine is a major milestone in my life!

I've also been working on a cleaning routine.  I don't have all the kinks worked out yet, but I will have some fun things I want to share with you on a later post.  Stay tuned!!

All in all, I am really happy with how these changes have been coming...thanks Michelle and Kat!


  1. Cherie, Wow! You're doing an amazing job! I'm so impressed with you! Thanks for giving an update!

    m :)

  2. Oh I should be joining you for your Hello Mornings! I am really trying to get into a routine.

  3. Zumba still scares me! I just don't think I'm that coordinated for it. :)

  4. I know after reading your blog post about Hello Mornings, I've been convicted to actually stay awake after the baby gets up at 5:30/6:00 am and praying and studying my Bible. I've been doing it for almost a week now faithfully and have noticed a difference.

  5. Sounds like you're doing AWESOME!!! Way to go!

  6. Way to go! Thanks for sharing your success! It is encouraging for those of us who are struggling. :)


I am so glad you that you stopped by today! What's on your mind?
