The Confident Mom site is a blog focusing on helping moms make small changes to create peaceful and loving homes. I’ve linked to many of Susan’s blog posts in the past because I love her heart for struggling and overwhelmed moms and her passion for helping them become purposeful and intentional mothers. Susan has recently created a fabulous ebook called The 2012 Confident Mom Weekly Household Planner. This series of planning pages for each week of the year offers a variety of tasks staggered at appropriate intervals and includes everything from meal planning to items often forgotten such as checking your credit report to school shopping. Taking care of yourself should also be a priority, so there’s even “you” time on the list! You’ll be able to efficiently keep up with the tasks that can often be forgotten and feel prepared each morning with a realistic ‘to-do’ list. In addition there is a daily quiet time laid out that will get you through the bible in a year (note: a version without Bible reading is also available).
