I recently read this post about how to prepare ourselves when we sense our  mummy energy is running low. I think the best way to arm ourselves against impatience, unrighteous anger, and a slew of other sins is to analyse when we feel we are most tempted and prepare for the battle! For example, if dinnertime seems to be the rage of chaos at your home- after praying over this problem, perhaps consider preparing dinner in the crockpot in the morning and spend some quality time with the kids on the floor at that time or let the kids play outside. Also, think about playing some godly children’s music in the background to keep your mind refreshed (try these: https://pricelessgifts.wordpress.com/2010/04/21/augustine-dancing/ https://pricelessgifts.wordpress.com/2010/08/22/doctrine-for-children/), maybe post some scripture verses on index cards and keep them in your pocket to pull out when needed. Do you have any suggestions that have helped you? Feel free to comment!
