My Morning Routine(updated July 2010)

This is my new morning routine as of July 2010.  I've left the old one below for reference.  My day now starts between 530am and 6am.

  • Rise & Shine & Pray
  • Use toilet & swish it
  • Oral care/Swipe face basin, mirror & toilet
  • Get dressed
  • Time with God/Journaling
  • Check daily planner/complete to do list
  • Scan homeschool paces into the computer/Drink water

7am - 9 or 930am
  • Sweep front porch/Fill washer with water/Start laundry
  • Empty drainer
  • Wash yesterday's kitchen towels and rag
  • Fill wash basins with water
  • Breakfast prep
  • Breakfast & Vitamins/Family devotions

A morning routine sets the tone for my day. It is the foundation upon which the rest of my day is built. If I start off wrong I usually spend the day spinning my wheels and at the end I'm lamenting where did my day go and thinking about how much catching up I need to do the next day. I have changed my morning routine several times as I try to find one that works well and flows well. This is what I've been doing for a while now and it seems(at least for this season) to be working out well.

400am - Rise & Shine, Use bathroom, Oral care, Personal morning devotions, drink water(at least 3 glasses)

Then after that I put the kettle on, take hubby and my dirty laundry out, fill the washer with water, while washer is filling I sweep front porch then load washer.

By this time the water in the kettle is boiling so I switch it off and put the tea to brew. Then I sweep the rest of the house except the boys bedroom(which they are responsible for by turns on their chore chart).

Swish & Swipe master bathroom & swipe boys bathroom

600am - Wake everyone else up for family devotions, finishing making herbal tea for us to drink during devotions

All during this time I am rebooting the laundry when necessary.

615am - Family devotions and then my hubby and I have our couple devotions using this book - Moments Together For Couples

Approximately 730am - Kitchen time(Empty drainer, Breakfast prep, breakfast), boys chores, boys bathtime after chores, final laundry reboot(hang to dry)

900am - Homeschool time

So that's a glimpse into how my morning flows. It's coming together nicely Praise the Lord! I keep on praying and asking the Lord to order my days and He's been doing just that. Thank you Lord!

Hopefully this glimpse into how my morning goes may help you or someone you know to catch yours or their own glimpse of how the Lord wants you or them to order your or their mornings. Pray continuously and listen as the Lord speaks in that still small voice.


  1. I think that is a great routine. It's easier to get some of those chores done in the mornings.
    Thanks for your prayers! I am feeling lots less sore, just have a pounding headache and can't stand up to long at a time.

  2. It's great to have a routine that works! glad you found one.

  3. You are so right Pam. It is easier to get those things done in the morning. My day goes much better and I can concentrate on the family instead of the cleaning.

    Thanks Daniele.

  4. Wow! You get up so early! I thought I was doing good to get up at 6:15 to walk. LOL

    What time do you go to bed?

    I seriously need to get myself and my children on a schedule. I think I would get a lot more done.

  5. Hi Amanda
    I go to bed around 10pm on an ideal day. I also take a nap sometime during the day so that helps. A routine is very helpful to keep me on track. I've found that my most productive days are when I've gotten up early. Late mornings just don't work for me except when it's a day set aside for rest like Mondays or on Saturdays which is family day.

  6. Thank you for sharing your morning routine with us. I also find that getting up earlier than everyone else works very well. It's hard to get into at first, but think that training yourself is well worth the advantages it brings.
