Meal Plan & Motivational Monday

Happy Monday friends –

Once again, I hope you had a wonderful weekend. Summer is quickly coming to a close and it’s time to start thinking about the upcoming fall season! I can’t wait to make up some great fall treats for you! In other news, this week will be a tough one. Little man starts Kindergarten on Wednesday….. oh boy. If you’ve read my other posts, you’ll know how nervous I am for this moment; I’m completely dreading it. However, he is very smart and I know he will do great and eventually love school.

That is where my motivational Monday comes into play. I’m not being overly dramatic (or maybe I am) but I feel like this scripture can be used in any situation. Whether your baby boy is starting school, you have a sick loved one, you are stressed, dealing with a loved one’s passing, et. Whatever the case may be, I hope you find some comfort in Matthew 17:20

“If you have faith… nothing will be impossible for you.”

Jesus’ disciples faced many challenges of their own each day – challenges that tested their faith. Yet, God always made himself appear or helped strengthen the faith of his followers at just the right time. If you are facing a challenge of your own, know that He will be there for you, just when you need it.

I’ve posted a few time/money saving tips for school prep, here’s a couple. If you need some others, check out They have TONS of awesome tips plus they are the host for a lot of other bloggers’ Monday meal plans.

Best of luck to all you readers who are either starting school again or have loved ones starting school – it will get busy again!! Here’s this week’s meal plan from me:
