Are you a mom who is seeking quiet time?
When you’re a mom, you have to wear many hats, and one of the main hats happens to be TAXI DRIVER! It’s just a fact of life, right? The kids have places to be, and someone has to get them there.
In fact, it’s the taxi driver status that unites all moms–rather you’re a stay at home mom, or a working mom–you probably still drive your kids around all the time.
Right now we are in the early part of baseball season, which means a lot of practices! Because of that, I have found myself with little blips of free time in the car while the boys are practicing with their teams.
Instead of playing games on my phone during that time, I thought a better use would be to enjoy a little quiet time with the Lord. Because my phone is too tempting, I didn’t want a mobile app.
I wanted to keep it simple, so I created a list of scriptures and response questions that I could tuck inside of my Bible. No extra supplies are needed in my case because I already carry my Bible, my journal and a pen in my purse.
If you find yourself sitting in your vehicle while waiting for your kids (carpool, practice, school pick up/drop off, or lessons) then this plan is for you!
