    Exfoliator with Coconut Oil and Baking Soda

    My face is super sensitive….So that means I can’t use ponds, dove soap or anything with fragrance on my face. my face breaks out in bumps. When I was younger, I used Noxzema on my skin but realized it wasn’t giving me the same results as when I was in high school but I was still using it I would wash my face with Noxzema and then I would put Vaseline on my skin and that was it.

    Review: Breaking Busy

    I have been compensated by Zondervan for my honest review of Breaking Busy.

    Review: Breaking Busy

    Review: Breaking Busy

    This is the Review:Breaking Busy. She starts off with a humorous story about putting too much on our plates and tells the story when she booked an air plane flight at 6a.m. thinking she could use the extra time to do work. Only to think that she lost her cell phone but instead realized after being frantic that she put it in her bra. Ali Worthington in Breaking Busy tells us how we can do great things for God without being busy.

    Review: Breaking Busy

    I can identify there were times when I have so much on my plate if my head wasn’t attached I would lose that too! I love her statement,

    Wouldn’t life be so easier if we each had a readout that told us, this is your remaining capacity. Your energy reserves are low. Please stop and recharge

    Ali gives the analogy of a phone to help us see that we all reach a certain capacity. I know for myself I tend to push myself to the limit just to see how much I can do as Ali said its an adrenaline rush but when the high is over you feel drained, and tired. As much as I loved to do things to be busy I too had to realize when you have a 2-year-old and a 5-year-old and your yelling at them because they want what they clearly can’t do for themselves its time for a change.

    Worthington tells you 6 signs that we know if we are too busy.

    1. Inability to control emotions
    2. Lack of self-care
    3. Illness
    4. Chronic lateness
    5. Self-medicating
    6. Neglecting important relationships
    7. Neglecting God

    [bctt tweet=”Just like a phone needs to be brought back to charging station we need to get back to God to be recharged.”]

    Worthington gives advise on how to live your life not just being busy but in your purpose.

    1. What activities have you loved from childhood?
    2. Discover what you love.
    3. What tugs at your heart?

    Through the book she makes profound statements this is another one, The more we worry, give in to fear or think negatively about ourselves, the busier we get. This is so true in my life we become busy trying to feel adequate or thinking of the next big thing when God is like just listen and I will give you your next step.

    Worthington even talked about how tradition if done in a bad way can bring unnecessary busyness to our lives. There was this tradition as a Sabbath observer to cook these extravagant meals for Friday night and for church a simple sandwich would not suffice. While this was something in my husband’s family we had to break the tradition because that did not work for our family. I have learned to give boundaries so I won’t feel overwhelmed. I did the stop doing list and from her book learned about an app called Rescue Time where it tracks how you use your time on social media (I’m afraid).

    Review: Breaking Busy

    I was extremely impressed by how she candidly told us about her life in a humorous and delightful way and she gives you step by step detail on what you can do to lead more of a productive not busy life. I recommend this book to anyone who feels there are not enough hours in a day.

    My 10 best quotes from Dr. Martin Luther King Jr

    Dr. Martin Luther King

    Dr.Martin Luther King Jr would have been 87 years old can you believe that? In honor of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr Day I have listed my 10 best quotes from Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. 

    1. When you are right you cannot be too radical, when you are wrong, you cannot be too conservative.
    2. I have decided to stick with love. Hate is too great a burden to bear.
    3. Darkness cannot drive darkness, only light can do that hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that. We must learn to live together as brothers or perish as fools.
    4. Life’s most persistent and urgent question is, “What are you doing for others?”
    5. Our lives begin to end the day we become silent about things that matter.
    6. We must accept finite disappointment, but never lost infinite hope.
    7. Forgiveness is not occasional act, it is a constant attitude
    8. Never succumb to the temptation of bitterness.
    9. The function of education is to teach one to think intensively and to this critically. Intelligence plus character that is the goal of true education.
    10. Faith is taking the first step even when you done see the whole staircase.
