“Time management is really life management, personal management. It is really taking control of the sequence of events. Time management is having control over what you do next.” (Eat That Frog – 21 Ways to Stop Procrastinating and Get More Done in Less Time)
That sounds like a schedule to me. Are you managing your life by controlling what you do next? Do you first have purpose in your day, and then do you have the schedule to make sure that purpose happens?
I sometimes think that because we are moms at home, we don’t feel like we need to maximize our time in the same way a business person might. However, don’t you think that our little sphere with our children is eternally more important than the biggest business ever? Shouldn’t we manage it in the light of that reality?
Trusting in Jesus,
PS – Thank you, Mary, for sharing your talent.

“Only one life ’twill soon be past;
Only what’s done for Christ will last!”
That’s a great quote from CT Studd. He knew the value of time and spent his life serving the Lord. That is exactly why time management is so important. Twenty four hours in the day, Lord may I not waste any of it, but be sure all that You have given me is accomplished!
Great drawings. Has Mary ever thought about creating a picture book for children not old enough for the Moodys?
She’s hoping to!
Mary’s drawings are absolutely awesome! Sort of funny, too (the top one) 🙂
Incredible artwork job Mary.
So true, Teri. Even though my children are grown, I want to continue serving the Lord in all I do. When I have a schedule to follow, I really DO get more accomplished – – especially worthwhile, meaningful activities.
Mary is certainly talented – – great drawings! 🙂
What a great time of year to be reminded of the value of schedules. As we are all getting ready for “Back to School,” this seems like the PERFECT subject – I personally would like to see some motivational posts about setting up schedules for the fall, adapting schedules from more leisurely summer paces, etc. What do you think?
Sounds good as that was actually in the works. Great timing! We’re planning on doing more scheduling and motivational posts.
Mary, the illustrations are terrific! I love your style! It is modern-modest.
Great post! As I worked in banking and HR for many years I had the time management thing down. Rarely did I leave work without having accomplished all things that needed to be done that day. Then along came S and my SAHM days began. Why would I need to worry about time management at home? No real deadlines, except maybe dinner. No one to report to. I thought I had it made. THEN, I started to notice that I was going to bed at night leaving things undone. It wasn’t a good feeling. Finally a few years ago I found MOTH and it changed my life. I didn’t have an incredible amount to do then, however it prepared me for the days that I would start doing more volunteer and ministry work. Today if I didn’t have my time management skills back I would NEVER get all done in one day that the Lord puts in front of me. PTL for Titus2.
Mary, your artistic skills are amazing. I love your style. Just wondering at what age you started taking up drawing?
She’s been drawing for 3 years. Johnna, what great insights. Yes, the home needs management just like the work place. We’re so glad MOTH and Titus2 have been a blessing.
