Note from Kat: The ever radiant and incandescent (isn’t that a wonderful word?) Michelle is guest posting today as she leads us through the Maximize Your Mornings Challenge. My encouragement for you this week: baby steps.
Week One Recap
Last week, we began rolling out of bed. Our goal was to set an alarm and actually get up. I had quite the unusual past couple of weeks, so I didn’t do a great job of getting back into my routine. My biggest problem has been going to bed!
How did you do?
Step 2: Quiet Time Schedule
“I earnestly recommend that it be in the early morning, unless there are some extenuating circumstances. Entering the day without a serious meeting with God, over his Word and in prayer, is like entering the battle without tending to your weapons. The human heart does not replenish itself with sleep. The body does, but not the heart. We replenish our hearts not with sleep, but with the Word of God and prayer.” -John Piper
(Thanks for sending me this quote, Nicole!)
Here’s what we’re doing this week:
- Read pages 6-10 of the eBook.
- Read Step 2 on page 20.
- Pages 21-22 are there for you to put your Worship Plan in writing.
1. Select morning worship music.
2. Create or select a Bible study plan.
3. Create or print a prayer calendar.
4. Be quiet and listen.

Now go kick some AM posterior!
Michelle’s a crazy-dancing, Jesus-loving, undomesticated transplant in Amish country. This teacher & eternal student enjoys biting off more than she can chew & sharing the juicy bits at So, I married a Mennoniteâ€¦. When she’s not goofing around on Twitter, you can find her keeping stride with two lively boys & wondering where she put her phone.
