Today's Opportunity Day 17In this unique season of family , we have the opportunity to be intentional about our self-care, our relationships, and even taking care of the home we live in.

Sometimes we need a little vision, though. A plan. Some ideas that get us heading in the right direction.
If you missed my introduction to “Today’s Opportunity Plan,” you can find it here.

Here’s Day 17:

Your soul:

Read Psalms 23 today through the eyes of our current circumstances.


Water: set an alarm on your phone today to drink 6-8 oz of water every hour. Water is for our body what oil is for a car. We need far more than most of us drink. Maybe you could start a new habit today!


Send gifs back and forth to each other today…all day–even if you’re under the same roof! (Oh and don’t forget to sign up for the No More Perfect Marriages Seminar: Home Edition that starts tonight!)


Everyone outside for 15 minutes minimum each day.

Kids: Time for some sidewalk chalk drawings. Have the kids decorate the sidewalks around your home or the deck or driveway if you live in a rural area.

NOTE: Today is a great day for you to put together Resurrection Eggs for your kids! This will help you tell the Easter story and give your kids something to anticipate every day.

Teens: Have your teen touch base with their grandparents today. If they don’t have any living grandparent, have them reach out to an older neighbor to see how they’re doing.


Hit the stairs today. Up and down 10 times (two sets of 5 is fine–5 x up and down is usually about all I can handle at a time!)


Just about everyone has a “junk drawer.” You know the one that’s full of miscellaneous items you might need! Today’s the day to clean that out!


1 load of laundry COMPLETELY done: Wash + Dry + Folded + Put away = Done  
You’ve got a unique opportunity today! Use it well!
