Prayer Alarms




As I approached 2014 I spent some time thinking about personal improvements that I needed to make for myself (and my family as well).  It had become glaringly apparent to me that the majority of my prayers revolved around teaching my children to pray.  I had and always have been faithful to stopping and praying with them multiple times throughout the day, however when praying with my four year old & two year old, no doubt there are things I'm not mentioning when with them.  

I needed to pray more about my marriage, my role as a Mother, and my business - and especially juggling it all.  Sure, I was praying about these things at least once during the day, but ONCE?  Is once enough, really?  Even more, if I was only praying once, was I exhausted when it finally occurred....well, of course! I wish I could tell you I was "better" and doing "more" all along.  I'm being honest here - and what I can tell you is that I took note and made changes and now I am doing BETTER and MORE and you know what?  Wow, I am reaping the benefits!

Prayer Alarms have changed me and my prayer life.  Yes, I have a million and one distractions in my life right now, but having alarms, on my cell phone, set periodically to go off throughout my day as a reminder to stop and pray has been a huge {yet simple} blessing to me.

Try it.  I promise only good will come from it!

1 Chronicles 16:11 - Seek the LORD and his strength, seek his face continually.

Psalm 145:18 - The LORD is near to all who call on him, to all who call on Him in truth.

Colossians 4:2 -  Devote yourselves to prayer, being watchful and thankful.

1 Thessalonians 5:17 - Pray without ceasing.

James 5:16 -Confess your faults one to another, and pray one for another, that ye may be healed . The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much.

Wishing you much GOODNESS - Katy



Yes, the blog has turned into all-things Essential Oils.  My apologies if you have been following along looking for DIY's, recipes, and thrifting GOODNESS.  Here's the deal.  Everyday I get a message from a team member sharing how they are feeling better, sleeping better, having less struggles with their children, overcoming illness faster and weaning from prescriptions.  It is rewarding y'all.  Rewarding in ways I never imagined.  So truthfully, the blog is primarily about Essential Oils because they are changing my life and my family's life in ways I never thought possible...it is beautiful and I thank you for letting me veer from "my" path to following His plan for our family.
