The winner of the Beth Moore Daniel Bible Study book giveaway is Rachel. Her advice is to get up earlier than your children so you can have your quiet time and get ready for the day ahead. I agree that this is crucial to a smooth running day. It doesn't happen around here very often (particularly since I have one that likes to get up around 6:30) but when it does it really makes a huge difference in my countenance, if nothing else. Rachel, I will get with you to make plans to get your book to you.
And if you aren't already familiar with Rachel's blog, please go visit her. School is back in full swing at her house already. She's always full of great ideas.
See you later this week, Lord willing!
