If you are ready to take back your time to what really matters most, you are going to want to listen to this podcast! Hey Friend! I am Monica H Baker! I am a Jesus lover, wife, mom of 5 kids, grandma, & nurse!! Many years ago, I was working full-time with young kids at the time and I heard something that CHANGED MY LIFE! I heard that if you compare your values and your time, you would have a clear picture of what is NOT working in your life! I realized that if I was going to put God and family first, I had to stop spending all my time at work. I had to create a plan in order to step into more balance. Together with God and my husband, I created a simplified life plan that allowed me to get out of debt, scale back my career, and still be able to live fruitfully with more purpose and time than ever before and I never looked back! My mission is to help moms simplify, explore sustainable living, begin your homesteading or gardening journey, reduce expenses and live with less stress and more peace!

I hear so many people say I will be happy when….I get this or that happens and always wanting more, more, more, but I know you can be happy right where you are right now.
I truely believe that when you are walking with Jesus daily and you have this amazing relationship with him, you can be happy in whatever your circumstance may be. There is such a joy in knowing that He is with you every step of the way.
Contentment is being satisfied and at peace with your current circumstances. It really is an essential element of living a simpler life that you want to have. There is also a connection between gratitude and contentment, so it is crucial that you are thanking God every day for what He has put in your life. There are so many things we take for granted and it is so important to appreciate and give thanks for each little things.
Here are three practical tips for you as a busy moms to find contentment in your daily life.
- Creating a daily gratitude journal-this is something I used to do in the morning, but I now like to do this before bed because all the things throughout the day are fresh in my head and it helps to go to bed with a thankful heart
- Embracing mindfulness and being present in the moment-don’t have your phone with you when you are doing anything with your child or even when you are together with friends. They know that they have to compete for your attention. Even as an infant. Being present and intentional is critical. I am so happy that I didn’t have to worry about a phone when my kids were young-it is one less thing that could distract me.
- Simplifying your routines and schedules so you can focus solely on what truely matters to you in life. Always be true to what you value and that will help you be more content. Less is so much more.
I just wanted to share this message as we enter into the extra busy holiday season where you may get exhausted. Remember to keep it simple and practice contentment.
