Slow Day: Week 10

Welcome to my weekly Slow Day post, inspired by Monica from The Homespun Heart. My Word for 2018 is Slow and, in the spirit of that word, I’m taking one day each week (Wednesday) off — I’ll be unplugged and offline and plan to move at a slower pace, take time to do things that refresh me, and just really focus on being present and savoring the moment.

Each Saturday, I’ll be sharing a photographic peek into my Slow Day — and I’ll let the pictures almost 100% speak for themselves, instead of giving many explanations. Enjoy a little peek into our lives!

We got the treadmill moved into the room that will eventually be finished out to be our workout room! So my day usually starts here.

And then we all hop in the car to drive to school drop offs together. (Now that our house is not so close to all of their schools, we’ve started all driving together and we’ve quickly fallen in love with starting our day out by all being together and just checking, chatting, and send the kids off with encouragement for their respective days.)

I grabbed a sweater to cover up with since it was a little cold! And I got some of my Bible reading in on the drive back from school drop-off.

Then, it was time to get showered and dressed for the day and head to my Discipleship Group. I just love these women that I’ve been journeying with so much and we continue to grow closer and closer as the year progresses. It is so amazing to see the heart changes happening and how God is using this material to transform lives.

After Discipleship Group, I met up with Jesse and another couple for lunch at Frothy Monkey.

After school, I hung out with the kids and helped them work on some projects for their new rooms and then Kathrynne and I watched a show together.

Silas has been collecting various photos to display in his room and was excited to find a frame that was perfect for this photo.

Jesse had made some chicken in the Crockpot and I made rice in the Instant Pot. We love using these for the majority of our dinners these days!

Earlier in the day, I had spontaneously invited my Discipleship Group over to hang out after dinner. So I spent a few hours in the evening with those ladies. (Read more about that in this post here.)

  • Brooke says:

    I know the Becoming a Whole Hearted Disciple curriculum is put out by your church. Is it available for purchase by any chance?

    • It isn’t because the program is so much more than the book and it involves small groups walking together in radical authenticity and vulnerability over many months. Our church hopes to someday soon figure out how to bring the same experience to other churches because it has been so life-transforming for all of us who are involved in it.

  • Seems like such a cool routine, and I love how you write with such heart and details. Thanks for sharing a piece of your life like this =)
