Monday Meanderings - INFO

For those of you who are new to Monday Meanderings, thank so much for joining me! I'm a planner and organizer and I've found it such a blessing to my family and home to plan more than just my menu. Not everything goes exactly according to MY plans, but at least it gives me a start and a focus for the week! So here's the run-down...

Bible Study... What are you going to try to read this week? I know I'm not the only one who has trouble actually sitting down to read the Bible in the midst of busy days. But if we have a plan, we're more likely to do it!

Memory Verse... This doesn't have to actually be a MEMORY verse, though that would be good. Most of the time now it's mostly just a "focus verse" for the week.

Husband Encouragement... What can you specifically do to love and encourage your husband this week?

Train Them Up... What are you going to focus on in your parenting or do for your children this week??

Personal Goals... Don't forget you! This cannot be house or parenting-related. Something just for YOU. (ie exercise, working on a hobby, reading a book, etc)

New Habit of the Month... What new habit do you want to start this month? (ie wipe down counters nightly, clean off couches at the end of the day, etc)

MUST Do... Of course we all have a million to-do's every day, but what has to absolutely ABSOLUTELY get done!! (ie Are you completely out of clean underwear? Do you have a bill that's due? Do you need to schedule an appointment? etc)

Zone... What area of the house do you really need to focus on this week?

Menu - Monday thru Sunday, what are your meals for the week?

FUN THINGS! Don't get hung up on all the to-do's and lists, what FUN things do you have going on this week??

3 things I'm thankful for today... In the midst of it all, we can ALWAYS choose to be thankful!


Okay, so that's the basic list, but feel free to modify it how you want. Don't have kids? Then leave out the "Train Them Up" section. Have a job? Include your work goals. Have fun with it, personalize it to YOUR life!

Rules:
1. Link directly to your specific post in the Mr. Linky list.
2. Make sure you link to ME in your post.
3. Feel free to save the MM image to your computer so you can use it in your own post.

Ok, so I'm going to try and start doing this. I already do menu planning but it seems this other stuff might be good to think about too! I guess I should post one then.... and I hope I get the hang of this whole linking thing too!

I think I linked to you in my blog, but tell me if I did it wrong. I used the Monday Meanderings pic and linked it to your blog.

You know what's funny is that I was realizing now with 3 that I must get more organized and have always liked your weekly list. I was going to just copy your titles and voila... you showed me exactly what you write! hehehe... So obviously God wants me to get more organized and focused on things to do. I just might have to join this one.

I've been doing the Simple Woman's Daybook, but I think I'm going to switch over to this because I think it would be much more beneficial for me! Thanks for the guidelines! I can't wait to join in Monday!
