A Proverbs Wife

Working Willingly

What is “Working Willingly”?

“Working Willingly” is a weekly post published every Monday that will help keep me accountable in completing my daily tasks. It will work as a catalyst in helping me remain organized and focused. I will create a weekly list of tasks that I should be focusing on. By seeing this list on my blog daily I will be reminded of my weekly priorities.

I will plan out my week every weekend, using the subtopics below, and post it on Monday mornings. By doing this I am hoping to continue my growth in becoming a better steward of my time and energy.

If you plan to participate, you can simply copy my subtopics below or create your own.

~Bible Study
~Must Do
~Taking Care of My Home
~Training My Children
~Menu Plan Monday

I hope that you will participate with me here each Monday by leaving a link to your on “Working Willingly” post. Your post can easily be printed and stored in your Home Making Binder or somewhere easily accessible.

Each Monday just below my post you’ll find an Mr.Linky set up. Please copy the link that leads directly to your “Working Willingly” post not your homepage. Posts leading to a homepage will be deleted. I am hoping that we can inspire and encourage each other to work willing according to Proverbs 31:13.
