Melissa is a soccer mom who helps a soccer organization in her community. But beyond her volunteer time in her community Melissa also takes care of her family, and helps her elderly parents. She home schools her children and manages her house. Melissa is like you and I - she is a “go-getter” - but even Melissa can become overwhelmed with home and office projects
I want to encourage Melissa and all of us that we can enjoy life while getting things done when we do not try to do it “ALL” at once. When we trade in B I G plate portion projects for “bite-sized” productivity we can make our “ALL” “small” which helps us to bENCOURAGEd Today!
Today, we are going to talk about one of my favorite Make Your ALL Small - “bite-sized” tips...Name the Day! - But before I begin let’s define what a Chore is.
This podcast is a little different today - Normally, I follow a production clipboard - I sit down each month and plan out all the podcasts for several weeks - which helps me schedule recordings in advance, so that I can produce resources and balance my workload - But as today got closer I kept pausing that production schedule - because I wanted to share some timely encouragement.
So what CAN you do to bENCOURAGEd to fulfill the plans God has for you?

Okay, so let’s begin today’s podcast with some encouragement!
This week’s encouragement comes from a LIVE video on the bENCOURAGEd Today Podcast Community Facebook Group where I shared tips on how to “Purge to be Productive”.
Today’s encouragement comes from Holly - who shared -
"I so needed this about doing things in "little bites." The purge/productivity has really been on my mind. Our environments are so important...and clutter creates stress. My office also doubles as Clara's playroom. I am in the middle of purge, as well as painting the house to make it a more "cheerful/motivating" environment. Great message!"
As I read Holly’s comment I knew that I wanted to dive further into this concept of “Purge to be Productive” - Thank you Holly for your comment and we are going to get to this subject today!
Today we are going to think on…
