SJP Episode #004 with Pam Barnhill Taking Back Your Mornings! Tips for a Better Start to Your Day!

Simply Joyful Podcast — Pam Barnhill: Taking Back Your Mornings! Tips for a Better Start to Your Day! 

This is an exciting episode for me! I have no idea how I missed the whole podcasting revolution when it was starting. Somehow I did. Yet, when my friend was talking about all the encouragement she received from listening to Pam Barnhill's podcast, my eyes were officially opened to the world of podcasting. I'm so thrilled to have Pam on the show today. I'm a big believer in gleaning from others and tweaking what they do to work in your own family. Well, that is not only the advice that Pam is going to give today, but she's just the person to glean from.

I've pretty much decided that I need to move next door to Pam, so I can check books out from her library. I hate to say it but I was ignorant to so many of the books that she mentioned. Upon looking them up, they all look so adorable. I think my younger kids would love them. Don't get me wrong. We do a ton of reading…and have read several of the Hank the Cowdog books. However, I'm realizing that I haven't been checking out some of the great books I used to get for my older boys.

I just know you are going to love this podcast and will learn so much from Pam and her incredible tips about how to create more structure and order to your morning time.

In this episode you are going to be inspired to take back your mornings. Whether you are a homeschool family or not, mornings set the tone for your entire day. Pam shares some incredible insight into how to add more structure to your mornings.

I hope you enjoy my conversation with Pam! Get ready to be encouraged!
