Finding God in the Mundane

I recently cared for my 6-month and 2.5-year old granddaughters for 6 days. I quickly remembered that you have time to care for and entertain these precious little ones, but time for little else! No time for finding God through prayer or study, unless it was late at night.

I encourage women that I teach and coach to explore ways for finding God during the midst of their day. After the week with my grandchildren, I can really empathize with how challenging it is to find quiet time!

Work can present the same challenge, particularly if you are a working mom. Do you wonder how you find time for yourself, let alone with God?

My wonderful friend, Steph, has always talked with me about how she finds God and prays in the midst of all that she does.  Don’t look for that right moment – that quiet time that may never come – but invite God into your daily activities, including your mundane chores! Listen in to her story.
