Setting priorities as a future Mother

1- God
2- My Husband
3- My Home
4- My Children
5- My Private Life
6- Public Life

The decisions you make must be based on how the opportunity/task may affect each of these areas

God comes first for me; ultimately I need to know my choices are reflecting that priority for me and the fear of the Lord is evident in my life and I am obeying Him.

My husband, he is my second priority. I am committed to loving my husband in practical ways, spending time with him, encouraging him, and being his support person. Notice he is far above my children, time together for us without kids is a necessity not a luxury.

My home is next. This one throws some people and it took me awhile to understand this and feel comfortable with this, but what were you given first to care for? A home or children? Don’t make the common mistake of always putting activities with your children above caring for your home. Work for proper balance. You are responsible for creating an environment for your family to thrive in. If your home is chaotic, a mess and unmanageable your family will suffer.

My children are fourth. Understanding where my children are in the priority order makes it easier for me to make decisions. I can look at the big picture and see what else may be impacted negatively and where that falls into my list.

My private life is fifth. Making sure I am taking time for myself, caring for my own needs for rest, exercise and spiritual renewal.

My Public life. All of my activities outside the home, from volunteering, work to friendships, these all are included here. This is where most women have trouble learning to say “no”. But it is extremely important that you can learn to say no, or the other more important areas will suffer. Don’t let yourself become fooled by what society is telling you that you need to be, know what your priorities are and where your strength comes from.

After all, when mom is doing well, the whole family thrives!
