You need time to get ready for the day. I always have a better day if I:

– Wake up before the kids,
– Say my prayers,
– Do some stretches/yoga, or if Dunc is home, go running with a friend,
– Read my scriptures… blah blah blah.

That is a dream, that didn’t come true for me until my youngest was about nine and I was finally able to wake up sane enough and early enough to do all this before the kids wake up. … And still I don’t do it most of the time because I LIKE sleeping until I HAVE to wake up, but I DO make sure that I am up with the first kid. I don’t like the feeling of laying in bed while they are being stellar. I want to be up and accomplishing with them. 😉

Without a doubt-

You have GOT to read the scriptures sometime in the day, every day – even if it is only a verse. The peace and blessings that come from centering your day on Christ are too great to pass up. AND PRAY morning and night. Test it out. A miracle is what this simple habit will do for you.
