After a season of transition with work and homeschool, baking has become a luxury! Yesterday was the best Sabbath Day ever! I spent time with my family, got dirty in the kitchen with my kids, and I finally got to enjoy time baking!
So, first on my list was mock wheat bread that is grain-free and low carb. I used the mock wheat bread recipe from Every Last Crumb and added 1/4 cup flaxseed and 1/2 tsp of baking powder.
Second on my list was a healthier spin on some comfort food from the good old apple orchard. I made my lower carb version of my sugar and spice gluten-free donuts . We coupled it with some homemade apple cider with apples that we picked right from our apple trees in the backyard. It felt like we were at the apple orchard eating donuts and hot apple cider except we were warm and cozy in our home. Mmmmm.
Life can get pretty eventFULL. Remember to stop and enjoy what is important to you and don’t let that slip through the cracks (Believe me, I am talking to myself here!). For me, faith, family, fitness, fundraising, and fun are what is important to me. So we make our Sabbath a priority, family and date nights every week, homeschool, I work out 3-5 times a week, I aim to raise money for charity every month, and I try to make sure I do at least one fun thing every day even if it is only for five minutes. Whew! That is a lot to pack into one day with six kids in tow. But it is possible (with God all things are possible!). See how I do it at Women, Rise Up!
Being an entrepreneur-homeschool mom, it can be challenging to keep the balance. Whether you are a homemaker, homeschooler, entrepreneur, working outside the home, or whatever you do, try to be intentional about staying balanced every day. Because at the end of the day, it is not about how much money you make, but how many lives you’ve touched–and that includes family. Blessings!
Delight yourself in the Lord and He will give you the desires of your heart. Psalm 37:4
What are your lifestyle priorities? What are some of the things you think get in the way of staying on track with your priorities?
