I am a new Mommie as of Sept 26. Is it just me or is it hard to find time to send with the Lord, alone and quiet, with a newborn?? What do you do or how do you handle making sure you spend time with the Lord?

Doing laundry, or the dishes, or the sweeping or laying there with your infant can be time with the Lord as well. God does not specify when we need to pray and I know that I pray throughout the day and spend time with Him whenever I hear Him or think of Him.

Congratulations! Martha gave you some very good advice. I listen to christian programming and music every single day through the internet. I have four little ones and I also run a daycare in my home, and I have struggled to find time to be with the Lord. I have made nap time every day my time with Him. I know nap time is a good time to get housework and laundry done, but it's an awesome time to reconnect each day with the Lord. I also try to take some more time right before I go to bed. You also have to remember that there is no set time limit you need to spend with him everyday. Some days you may be lucky to get 10 minutes and others you may get an hour.

Martha gave some great suggestions. Congratulations on your new bundle of joy!! Enjoy every minute with your little one....grow up so fast!!!

You are not imagining things....it is hard to have quiet time with a newborn in the house.

When I was at that stage, I remember putting on some wonderful, encouraging Christian music and meditate upon the words. A lot of songs have scripture in them.



Congrats again!

First of all, congratulations on your little bundle of joy! For 3 months after I have a baby, things are finding their way to a new normal (I've got 4). As much as you can, play Christian music, to help focus your mind on God (it helps with postpartem depression a good bit). Find a preacher one OnePlace.com you really like, and try to catch their daily webcast. The nice thing is if you do miss a day, it's archived and easily available for up to a week. God knows your desires are toward him, and He also knows how crazy your current existence is. Keep seeking Him; your heart's in the right place, you'll find Him. Grace and Peace!
