Do you Ever Want Something To Change?



Lately I have wanted some change to take place. I get frustrated with the same thing and want God to take me to a better place in my life where things make more since and there is more order.

 Do you ever get to that place a place of  re-evaluation?

Here are some things that we are working to change:

*Chores to be done in a quick manner not drug out for hours of the day.
*School to be done in more of a group fashion and in an orderly way. (we are looking for a new curriculum to use that will suit our needs)
*As always I am still looking to improve my health. Lately my Scoliosis has been my focus as well as my lack of energy I think they may be connected.
*We are putting together a program for the children to do on a certain night of the week that will be teaching them survival skills for boys and girls. Dad works with the boys and Mom works with he girls.
* Stress relief and more sleep for the parents:)
* A way to have a nearly free vacation and one that would be relaxing and fun at the same time. (Is that possible with 7 children?)

We are making some progress on our list but its just a little at a time and it takes time to foster change.

What have you done lately to faster a big change in your life?

When I was growing up we used to camp out. There were free camping sites availabe back then. So our expense was for food and gas to get there and back. We went fishing and/or hunting so that helped too. I hope you all get to go on a vacation.

Have you ever looked into the Bowen technique for your scoliosis and energy issues? I have anything to do with this website I have just seen great results from the bowen technique for a multitude of ailments for my whole family. You might see if there is a provider in your area and learn more about it at www.bowtech.com you don't have to post this comment I just wanted to share with you for your needs not to promote a website or anything.
