Monthly Challenge - July 2016

Last month we were reaching out to others, so this month it would be good to work on ourselves again.  I've been struggling with using my time wisely of late (hence the late posting of this challenge), so I thought maybe we should have a challenge relating to time management.   I hope it helps us all!


Prioritize something that is important for you to do and make extra effort on it this month.


Set a timer and spend 15 minutes a day on something you've been neglecting.


The priority item could be anything from sewing to attending Bible study.  It could be getting your preparations for the next school year done if you're a homeschooling mother.  It could be visiting a friend or relative who is shut in or in a nursing home more faithfully.  It could be getting more exercise.  It could be reading more.  The opportunities are immense!

Setting a timer and working on a specific task daily is pretty self-explanatory - sewing, weeding, writing, art, whatever you need to work on daily.  The two challenges could be combined very nicely as well.

As my mother would say, let's "knuckle down and get it done!"  :-)



  1. Sounds good to me! I will try setting that timer! Thank you for sharing with us on the Art of Home-Making Mondays at Strangers & Pilgrims on Earth! :)

    1. I'm glad it inspired you! :-) I hope you make some progress on whatever you work on.
      Thanks for hosting the link-up.
