A Simple Morning Routine for Moms
Things to Keep in Mind
You do not have to wake up before your kids.
I know, everyone says you have to wake up before your kids. However, I do not want us to get caught up in this. There are days that I do get up first, but 90% of the time that does not happen. One of my kids is an early riser and I used to stress myself out trying to get up first.
If you want to wake up first, you can do that, but do not think you have to do that to have a good routine.
Create a routine that you can do with kids around.
One of the most beautiful things about doing your routine when your kids are around is that they get to see you reading God’s Word and praying. You are being a role model and showing them what it looks like to depend on God.
Be realistic about your season of motherhood.
In different seasons you will be more stretched, have less time, be more tired, etc. Take time to be realistic about your current season. What is essential and realistic for your morning time?
Have grace with yourself.
There will be days that you miss your morning time. It is okay. No one is perfect. Give yourself grace and move forward.

Take time to pray.
Let go of thinking you have to pray for specific things or needs and simply surrender your day to God.
I love this simple prayer from Jeannie Cunnion, “I know you can. I pray you would. Your will be done.”
She goes on to say this in her post:
“Surrender isn’t giving up. It’s giving over every one of our fears and worries and problems and weaknesses to God. And in turn, receiving His peace as we partner with Him, rather than trying to be Him in our kid’s lives.”
Read your affirmations.
I am a big fan of speaking truth to ourselves and others. Taking time to read these words every morning, reminds you of who you are. Get the free printable affirmations here!
Take some deep breaths.
Do you ever feel like you are carrying the weight of the world? Taking some deep breaths will help you to let go of the tension. Think of it as you are releasing your worries and fears to God and inhaling the Holy Spirit and truth.
In the end, I like to focus my mind back onto God’s truth. I usually keep an ongoing list of verses to read over.
