Morning Madness

Morning Madness
Biblical Priority #4 - Home
by Stephanie H.

“She keeps an eye on everyone in her house-hold, and keeps them all busy and productive”. Proverbs 31:27a The Message

Morning madness? Does this sound familiar? "Mommy! I can't find my . . . !" getting the family out the door in the morning can make any parent want to stay in bed or hide.

I would like to introduce you to: the family launch pad. What is a launch pad? It's a dedicated space for each family member: a single location to contain all the "out-the-door" essentials of life. Setting up a launch pad can be as simple as clearing a shelf in a bookcase and designating the area the family's launch pad.

The launch pad is home to permission slips, lunch boxes, homework, library books and science fair projects. For the household's "big kids", the launch pad holds handbags, car keys, return videos, dry cleaning and the day's ration of slim-fast. One place. One special place to corral items every family member must have to leave the house each morning It isn’t likely that this will totally cure the “morning madness,” but the launch pad can ease the symptoms.

Challenge: Set-up a launch pad in your home.
