Managing My Minutes (Review)

What do we all have, equally?  It's not money, for sure!  But there is something that we have all been given the same of: every single person.  What is it?  Time!  We have each, without exception, been given 24 hours in a day.  And we each have a choice to make:  What will we do with that time?  What will we do with each minute?

Lorrie Flem of Eternal Encouragement has updated her Scheduling Bundle.  It is now divided into 3 parts and has brand new content.  This month I was privileged to review part one of the bundle, which is called Managing My Minutes.  I love that Lorrie has created this content because we all can benefit from learning to use our time better, can't we?  And Lorrie reminds us that our time is a gift from God and to be used for Him, and that we will be held accountable for how we use it!  Now that's a sobering thought.

Included in this ebook are several articles that help explain the need for scheduling and help in going about getting a schedule put together.  Lorrie first starts with the importance of putting the Lord first and also delves into the needfulness of priorities and much, much more.  I love how she has kept everything completely interesting and appealing to the eye by putting pictures and information boxes throughout the ebook.

As a person who has made several schedules over the years, I still found this ebook extremely useful.  Especially helpful was the reminder that a schedule is a tool, to be used to help us, and not to enslave us or rule us.  This will be really beneficial to those who fear using a schedule!

So whether you have a lot of experience scheduling or you're a woman who thinks schedules are for the birds, I recommend you get this great resource to help you make even better use of the time God has given you.

I received this resource free of charge in exchange for my honest review.

  1. You are so right about thinking about it as a "tool." I've thought of it as a taskmaster and therefore have avoided schedules! Thinking of it as a tool is much nicer!

    1. Yes, it really does change your perspective, doesn't it?

  2. Thank you! I have really been thinking about sitting down and writing my priorities down. I am determined to be a little bit strict with keeping it because I think I need to for at least a week. It will be a good tool to keep things running well enough. I will go check out the link. God bless you! :)

    1. Hi Mrs. A--so glad to "see" you! I think it's good to adhere to the schedule as much as possible, but plan for and expect interruptions too.
