Hi Reader,

How's your week going so far? Life back to normal yet?

Back to work. Back to school. Back to routine...

Or maybe not. 😊

I'm back homeschooling my two little boys. Trying to be consistent with some very tiny New Year's resolutions—like my 7-minute workouts. Seven minutes is all I can show up for right now. But better'n zero!

I'm not one for big, crazy resolutions. I'm an all-or-nothing person, and I don't like failing. 😂 So, if I'm going to give 1,000% consistency, the new thing must be small.

Speaking of starting something new—and starting small—have you always wanted to enjoy audiobooks, but you feel like they just aren't for you?

I wrote this article a while back about how to ENJOY listening to audiobooks. The key? The first chapter. Set yourself up for success so that you'll want to keep listening.

I'll tell you how I do it, and I hope it works for you!

Does God see?

Then those who respected the Lord spoke to one another, and the Lord took notice. A scroll was prepared before him in which were recorded the names of those who respected the Lord and honored his name. “They will belong to me,” says the Lord of Heaven’s Armies, “in the day when I prepare my own special property. I will spare them as a man spares his son who serves him. Then once more you will see that I make a distinction between the righteous and the wicked, between the one who serves God and the one who does not.
–Malachi 3:16-18
