Get Up Early Challenge: Day 15 (I had a lot of incentive to get up today!)

Get Up Early Challenge

It’s Day 15 of the Get Up Early Challenge and I had lots of incentive to get up early today… I’m flying to Washington State for a Girls’ Weekend with my dear friend, MacKenzie. (We’ve never met in real-life, but we’ve talked on the phone and Skype and connected so much through Periscope, that I feel like I’ve totally met her before!)

I’m on my first flight of 3 today (yes, it requires a lot of flying to get from Nashville to Washington!) and am excited to have some quiet time for reading, journaling, writing, and planning!

Stay tuned for later tonight (and follow @boldturquoise on Periscope!) as I think we’ll be doing a scope or two together!

Are you joining me for the Get Up Early Challenge? If so, leave a comment on this post to let me know how you did with your wake-up goal this morning.

We’re in this together… And if you didn’t hit your goal, that’s okay! Give yourself grace, don’t beat yourself up, and know that you can try again tomorrow!

Get Up Early Challenge: Day 14 (I slept in — but for a good reason!)

Get Up Early Challenge

It’s Day 14 of the Get Up Early Challenge and today, I let myself sleep in a bit since I was tired and want to be well rested for tomorrow.

(I have an early morning flight tomorrow and a very fun weekend planned — my husband is sending me off to Washington State to go have a Girl’s Weekend with my dear friend MacKenzie!! Squee!!!!!)

I spent this morning meditating on God’s goodness and faithful love shown through the story of Joseph in Scripture — as well as in our own lives. His love never fails!

I’ll be hopping on Periscope around 8:45 a.m. to share some Morning Motivation encouragement and to some thoughts and insights from Rest Assured. I’d love for you to join me or watch the replay (just download the app and search for @MoneySavingMom).

Get Up Early Challenge: Day 13 (I woke up before my alarm again!)

Get Up Early Challenge

It’s Day 13 of the Get Up Early Challenge and I went to bed later than I had planned on last night… But I still woke up *before* my alarm clock this morning!!!

I think that means my body is acclimating back to this Get Up Early thing?!?!?

I’m finishing up reading the beautiful story of Joseph in my She Reads Truth study today and meditating on the fact that Christ offers us forgiveness not condemnation. Such a beautiful reminder!

I’ll be hopping on Periscope between 7:45 and 8 a.m. to share some Morning Motivation encouragement and to some thoughts and insights from Rest Assured. I’d love for you to join me or watch the replay (just download the app and search for @MoneySavingMom).

Get Up Early Challenge: Day 12 (I woke up at 4:45 a.m.!)

Get Up Early Challenge: Day 12

Happy Tuesday!! It’s Day 12 of the Get Up Early Challenge and I went to bed around 9 pm last night and woke up (without my alarm!) at 4:45 am this morning! Yay!

I admit, it really helped that it’s no longer freezing cold here… It’s SO much easier to get up in the morning when it doesn’t feel so frigid!

I’ve been meditating on Romans 8:28 this morning and how God displayed this verse so amazingly in Joseph’s story in the book of Genesis.

Get Up Early Challenge: Day 11

Get Up Early Challenge: Day 11

Good morning!! It’s Day 11 of the Get Up Early Challenge and today our bed felt so warm and our room so cold, that it took a lot of willpower to get up when my alarm went off.

But I DID… And now I’m reaping the rewards because I just enjoyed some quiet to think, pray, journal, hand-letter, read, and spend time in God’s Word.

Today, I’m challenging myself to be a noticer of beauty. To look for the beautiful. To pay attention to the good. And to savor the little joys in life. They are there… I just have to look, notice, and pay attention — instead of being caught up in the rush of life or focused on the hard, frustrating, and difficult things of life.

Get Up Early Challenge: Day 10 (I gave myself a Grace Day!)

Get Up Early Challenge: Day 10

Good morning!!! It’s Day #10 of the Get Up Early Challenge and I gave myself my first Grace Day of this challenge… I was supposed to be speaking at a local event this morning but that got cancelled because of the school closings and the snow. Which meant my entire morning is now free!

Jesse didn’t get back home from being out of town until close to 10 pm last night, so I decided this was the perfect morning to have a Grace Day!

I just got up a little while ago and saw that it really and truly did snow! Now I’m off to have my quiet time and get ready for the day. I’ll be on Periscope for my usual morning show at a much later time this morning — probably 9 am CT. We’ll be doing our Q&A Friday today! I’d love for you to join me or watch the replay (just download the app and search for @MoneySavingMom).
