Thoughts from One Leader to Another: #4

A huge lesson I had to learn is to set parameters where your home can be a place of refuge.  Screen phone calls.  Do what you can to protect his schedule as much as possible.  Don’t over-commit yourself so that you don’t have to be stressed out with all you have to do.  Learn to say ‘no’ to good things and save your ‘yes’ for the best things.  Be careful not to make your church family a priority over your own family.  Your first responsibility is to your husband if you are married and your children if you have them. However, if you are not married, it is still vitally important to set some boundaries around your time because it will be easy for you to burn yourself out.  Remember that is Satan can't get us to under-commit, He will make us over-commit
