Our family’s ban on being busy and in a hurry

Love this post! I learned early on in my motherhood that a hurried life is no life for me and my family. We were frustrated and miserable with nothing good to show for it. I was led by God to drastically reduce our activity load and spend more time on the things that really matter in the long run — the eternally significant things. We live life in the slow lane and we are happier for it!

About thecrunchymamachronicles

I'm a woman obsessed with the amazing, everlasting, lavish, never-failing LOVE of the Heavenly Father through Jesus. It's my favorite thing to meditate on and to write about. His expression of love has radically transformed me from a joyless, miserable person to the me who is full of joy and love for others because of my radical identity as the beloved of God. I am devoted to my husband and to gently parenting our three boys with Jesus as my model of the ultimate gentle parent.

  1. Dear love! I am so grateful you reblogged this! Our family is on a major “ban on hurry” down in Costa Rica right now! We totally made it happen (ok, well GRACE made it happen, we just listened). What a delight to read that you shared this message of slowing down and working toward not being in such a big hurry. Love, Lisa

    Good perspective.

    You know when I worked outside the home, I learned to love BUSY and HURRY because it made the day go by faster and it felt more like work! Maybe this attitude seeps into the home where mamas want to feel like they’re working all day (Lord knows we are but maybe we don’t always feel it!) and all we know is that work=busy. Bad training if you ask me, but so many of us have been trained that way.

    I’m learning to be quite content without all the busy-ness in my day. Thanks for sharing this.
