March at the Purposeful Wife

Ahh March, my heart is singing at the prospect of spring, and Lord willing opportunities to get out of doors with my little girl. Fairer weather and sunshine are such delights! I'm thankful for the mild winter we've had, yet still eagerly anticipating short-sleeve weather :).

I'm very excited to announce, that in honor of Spring-cleaning, I will be spending the month of March with Fly Lady! I've dabbled in her helpful website off and on for a couple of years, but I thought that in light of my need for order, structure, and new routines; taking her first month of baby beginner steps might be just what I need. I've even signed up for her e-mailing list and liked her on facebook :). Every Friday I plan to check in with you all on how it's going for me. This is goal #1 for 3in30. Stay tuned!

I will be continuing my reading through six books a month this March (goal #2).  The titles on my docket are:

1. For Motherhood or Marriage: Super Baby Food by Ruth Yaron (S is getting ready for solids! Also cool to note, the author is a local to my area of PA.)
2. For Women: Lies Women Believe by Nancy Leigh Demoss (I've owned this forever, and read most of it years ago. Thought it was time to really read it.)
3. For My Soul: Respectable Sins by Jerry Bridges (Our Church will be reading this for morning Bible Study.)
4. For My Education: Night by Elie Wiesel (Because everyone should read this book! And I am embarrassed to say I somehow graduated high school without having done so...)
5. For Homemaking: The Five Minute Solution by Mary Frances Budzik (I touched on the concept of making the most of your minutes here, and lo and behold their is an entire book devoted to the idea of what you can do in only five minutes! Intriguing.)
6. For Fun: The Horse and His Boy by C.S Lewis (I am continuing through the Chronicles of Narnia, which I read in childhood but haven't reviewed since. So delightful!)

I will be posting reviews as I complete them, so again, stay tuned. 

For goal #3 I will be carrying on with organizing my home one room a month, 15 minutes a day. The room for March is my kitchen! Excited and scared, this room may look okay on the outside, but the dark recesses of my cupboards and pantry could really use a purge and redo. It is not the efficient and useful space it could be. 

This is how March is looking for the blog. You can also expect more posts for preemie parents, lessons I'm learning along the way, and what's cooking in my kitchen. It should be good :). 

What does your March look like?

  1. Great goals, as always, Rachel! You have so many good books on your list. I found Super Baby Foods to be very helpful. Also, I've been trying to shine my sink every night as well. It really does make my morning much less stressful! :)

  3. I love the fly lady method! It's always nice waking up to a clean sink.

  4. And, be sure to look over the guidelines of each site
    so that you do not get shut down. Let this rookie "unknown"
    marketer show you how he embarrassed the "gurus" by placing over
    4,120 people in his down line in 14 short months, while
    pocketing over half-a- million dollars. The traditional ways of building a network marketing business have a fundamental problem that most
    people aren't able to work through.
