About Me

I have discovered it is really hard to be Queen in a household with 3 princesses! Somebody is always borrowing my tiara! Well in between hunting my stuff down I am the proclaimed Queen in the Land of fluff (where my husband swears one day that he will die from glitter lung (you get the picture!) Besides that I am a dieting, exercising, crafting, biblestudying kind of girl.

How often do you get a check up

How are you doing?  It’s February and how often do you stop, pause and give yourself a check up?  Not a “medical” check up, even though those are important.  However, a life check up or evaluation of how you are doing in the following areas:

As a wife?
As a mother?
As a daughter?
As a friend?
As a christian?
Sharing your beliefs with others?
Loving difficult people?
How or what your doing with the time, God has given to you?

How do you evaluate yourself?  Do you ask others, or do a self examination of your life and choices? 

I have been thinking on this a lot lately, when I heard a pro football player talking about what he does in his off season, is that he evaluates himself in similar areas.  It got me to thinking when my off season is.  How often should I pause and look at how I am doing?  I know at work, we have a monthly meeting just checking on how we are doing, and if we are meeting our goals.  Shouldn’t my life require such scrutiny, and attention?  After all, I only get 1 time at this thing called life.  Should I not take it seriously and see how I am doing? I think so. I am unsure how I am going to proceed with this.  I may ask my kids and my spouse? And then take a look at where my money is being spent, and where my time and attention is given.  Then grade myself, sort of a report card for how I’m doing this year.

I will post my report card later this week.  I would love to hear how other ladies evaluate themselves or how often they pause and reflect.  Please share if you have any insights I would love to hear how anyone else does this!

Comments and opinions are encouraged and wanted!


  1. Great post! We should have the mindset of doing this often there is no doubt. It seems about the time I think I am doing pretty good here in these areas then WHAM! Satan attacks as I let down my guard! I just recently shared with the ladies in my Bible Study that I honestly praise the Lord for Conviction in areas of my life as it is a sweet reminder to me that I am in fellowship with Him despite my failures! Hugs and blessings, Cindy

  2. Its so true. Even our 'down times' should be a witness to others. In all that we say and all that we do, do it unto Him.
    He never takes a break from me. Thankfully!
