    I completely agree with your post! Everyone has their own way of finding quiet time – and what that looks like truly depends on where we are in life.The best time for me is while I'm putting my kids to sleep – whether or not it's a good thing, they are used to my being there until they fall asleep. It's fairly quiet (eventually), and it's a way to stay patient with them, as well.

    4:45? Really? In my mind that time doesn't exist.For me morning quiet times have never worked. It works so much better at night, and it seems to go against what everyone else does. I'm going to have to read what everyone else adds, because I love to see how other people connect with God too.

    I've been lacking in this area. Thanks for sharing your quiet time. You've inspired me to look into getting the book The Power of a Praying Parent. I'm with you on the writing. Writing helps me focus. I'm hoping my QT will eventually replace my blogging/FB time.Question – When do you find the time to exercise now with homeschooling?

    @Joyful Learner – exercise? What's that? hehe. I don't exercise anymore – not "real" exercise anyway, and I haven't in three years, since Bear was born. It's on my list of things to do, and I am working on adding it back to our routine soon.

    Everything changes when you become a parent. As much as you may try, your time is no longer yours. It's all about being flexible. Some how I think God understands our time management issues. Thanks for your post on quiet time. It's nice to be gently reminded and it's nice to know that others struggle to fit in the most important time of the day. And forget exercise. Being an active Mommy counts, doesn't it? I sure hope so. jeannine: waddleeahchaa.com
