It’s a new week and almost a new month. I love that God is the God of fresh starts…every day is a new day! The Bible tells us that his mercies are new every morning.
So what does your new week hold for you?
My boys are heading back to school after spring break. Personally, I loved last week with them but I’m ready for the routine again.
Erica is scheduled for an MRI on Tuesday morning and then we’ll meet with the neurologist on Friday. So hopefully this will be a week of answers for her.
And I’ll be in Chicago this week doing some radio shows for my new book. While in downtown Chicago I’ll be speaking on Real Moms…Real Jesus at Park Community Church Thursday evening. If you live in the Chicago area, come join us! You can find info about the event here.
What are you looking forward to this week? What does the new day, new week, or new month hold for you?

Hi Jill! Just found your blog and love it. Curious, do your children attend public or private schools? I read your link regarding homeschooling and found out you have done a little in the past. Thanks for your blog. So excited about reading your books!
It’s a big week for my family. Tomorrow night is my son’s music program. Wednesday night my daughter is getting baptized. Last, but certainly not least, my husband and I will be going away for a night to celebrate 10 years of marriage. I am so excited to see what God does with all these activities!
I am also looking forward to finding some type of routine again. Last weekend I experienced an unexpected miscarriage. One weekend I was at Hearts at Home having the best time ever, and the next weekend I am in emergency surgery. The last week has been hard not being able to care for my family. But today I feel new energy and am looking forward to a new week of returning to some type of normal. The Lord is good.
This week one of my daughters turns 6 and she is SO excited! Also this is a big week because on Friday our Crisis Pregnancy Center holds our first fund-raising banquet. We are excited (and a little nervous!) I also was praising God for new beginnings as I prepared for this week last night. It felt so good to get up this morning and know a new week was starting. A new chance to be disciplined in schedules and schooling and meal planning, etc! I was encouraged to read your post and see you were feeling the same thing!
This month has passed so quickly for us. We said goodbye to my husband’s Mammaw as she went home to be with Jesus this month. This past weekend I went to a Women of Faith conference.
Now April is upon us. This week is mostly a week at home catching up on laundry after being gone, getting groceries, and my little guy starts t-ball practice.
where has the month of March gone??? this week is a new, fresh start from a previous week full of the flu. i can’t wait to get back into a routine and get things running more smoothly around here. hopefully the new month will bring warmer weather and we can enjoy the outdoors a bit. most importantly, this week i will reconnect with my hubby and have a date night on Saturday…we’ve missed each other and got mixed up with everything going on with our son last week. Saturday night can’t come soon enough!
good luck at the Dr. appt for your daughter. i’ll be praying! enjoy your time in the city too!
In answer to anonymous’s question…my kids go to public school. We’ve done it all in the past, though…homeschooling, private school, and public school.
Thanks Jill for answering my question. My name is Jenn, I don’t know why I can’t post a comment unless I hit anonymous. I love our public school so far but struggle with the what to do in the future. I have a 3rd grader and Pre-K (both girls). Also, because they will both be full day next year i’m already getting comments like “Oh are you going to get a job next year”. Things like that. People are ruthless. I really think I would like to just volunteer at school and be home. My heart is so heavy about Junior High and High School. I need to seek God’s will and block out rude comments from people. Thanks again for answering. ~Jenn
Jenn (anonymous)—Follow your heart. You do have a full-time job even after your kids are in school full-time. My kids are 24, 21, 18, 15, and 12 and they need me at home. If you can still be at home as they grow older…stay committed to the ministry of availability. It’s a valuable profession!
