Goodbye for July

The first Monday of the month is when I usually introduce our faith focus and give you a snazzy free printable. But…

…my sweet friends, it’s time.

I’m taking a break.

From the very beginning my vision here at MADE has been to provide encouragement for women trying to navigate this tricky world we’re living in where we’re the busiest we’ve ever been, all the while being bombarded with social media and ridiculous expectations.

When I started this website with Jami we thought, oh for sure we can manage our family lives, a full time teaching career, friend relationships, church community, and 3 posts a week that have us crafting, cooking, writing, photographing, and Instagramming…sure no problem.

We were a bit wrong.

So in an effort to stay real and authentic with all of you, I’m going to do my best to keep my priorities in order.

God first.

Then family and friends.

And then everything else.

During this month off, I encourage you to take some time to look at your priorities. Give yourself a break. Take some time to breathe and create margin in your life.

When I return in August (fingers crossed) MADE may look a little different. Different doesn’t mean bad or less than. Change is good. Growth is important. Refocusing and refreshing is necessary.

Enjoy your July with your family, friends, and community. Engage with your Jesus and let Him breathe new life into you this month. I’m looking forward to it and I hope you are too!
