As a homeschool mom, I have a morning basket for the kids. We sit down together and do bible, history, science, and art together as a group. I have a basket that I created to have all the books, folders, and such to keep it all in.
I thought that I would do the same thing for myself to help keep my morning supplies together. I spend my mornings reading the bible, books, and doing a devotional. So, I created a basket for me. This will be a basket that I can keep in my room and put all my stuff in one place. Easy for me to grab and out of the way of all the rest of the supplies we have.
While I do my morning basket, the kids get their free time or they have to clean up messes that they made the night before.
I wanted to share what is in my basket. First, we start with my bible, my composition notebook where I take notes, and my (new) pocket calendar.
I like to start my day by reading the chapter or passage and keeping notes. I also like to have my calendar handy in case I need to look ahead and plan what is happening in the future.
Next, I wanted to share some books that I’ll be cycling through. I’ll read a chapter or so every other day and try to read all these books to have that influence in the word that I want. I’m trying to be more intentional and trying to spend more time in God’s word daily. Here are a few top picks.
I also am keeping some devotionals in my basket and I will also be cycling through them. I want to try and get a well rounded experience. So, I have a few things that I’m going to be going through. Here they are.
I am also going to be going through the Fruits of the Spirit. I started to do this with the kids but they were not ready for it. So, I’ll be going through it on my own and I’ll figure out a good way to incorporate this into their devotional too.
Lastly, I have a cool resource where I can search for topics in the bible. It provides you a number of verses where you can search A-Z. I use this quite often.
This is all in my morning basket and I’ll keep you updated on how I’m liking things, what God shows me, and what I get out of them. I know it is going to be a blessing.
Enjoy your day!
