5 Services That Moms Should Indulge In

 

Every mom needs a little help every now and then. Sometimes that help comes in the form of an extra pair of hands, while other times, it means seeking a service that helps make your home life a little easier and more comfortable. Whatever the case, consider indulging in a service that helps lighten the load. Of course, what services you can choose from depends on your budget, however, there are all types of options available at many price points. Take a look at the following services and work out what’s best for you and your household:

 

1) Meal Box Subscription

Meal box subscriptions like HelloFreshand Blue Apronare great options for parents who want to make their home cooking much more streamlined and easier. These subscription boxes come with a variety of packages depending on your needs. You can choose how many people you’ll be serving, what type of food you prefer to serve, and much more.

 

Each box comes with fresh food, a recipe card, and all the ingredients you need. This way, you can save yourself some shopping time. You’ll also discover new recipes and cooking methods that you may not have otherwise discovered. And lastly, if your kids are old enough, it’s a great way to bond with them and help them learn to cook,too.

 

2) Housekeeping Service

Let’s face it: one of the most tedious household tasks is cleaning it. This is especially more difficult when you’ve got toddlers running around. A housekeeping service is the perfect way to free up some time and rid yourself of some of the more mundane cleaning that you might be dreading.

 

For example, perhaps your home needs a deep spring cleaning and you’ve been unsuccessful at finding ways to carve it into your schedule. You should conduct a local Google search for an authentic housekeeping service if you want to stay safe and work with a reputable cleaner.

 

You’d be surprised at how many housekeeping services there are, even in the smallest and most remote towns. These may be a better option for you if you’d rather bring in an accredited team versus an individual from an app like TaskRabbit. For example, according to MountainMeadowMaids.com, a cleaning service in Littleton CO, “We are fully licensed, bonded, background checked and insured. No long term contracts means we must satisfy our customers.”

 

3) Babysitting Services

Every mom needs some free time. However, it can be difficult to find friends and family to babysit your children whenever you need. Take advantage of babysitting services. It may feel worrisome at first, but when you use babysitting services like Care.com, you can choose people who have passed thorough background checks, are CPR certified, and have extensive babysitting experience. You’ll even be able to see reviews from other happy parents.

 

If you’re particularly hesitant, you can always meet the potential babysitter ahead of time, and conduct a traditional interview. You could also have them babysit your children for the first time while you are present—which would give you the free time you need to do work or other things you need around the house, while also monitoring how they take care of your children’s needs.

 

4) Easy Kicks

Tired of wasting money on name brand shoes that don’t fit your kid in six months? EasyKicksis one of the less traditional services on this list, but it can certainly help you out. Easy Kids is another type of subscription service that sends you new Nike shoes for your kids ever few months, allowing you to trade those shoes in for new shoes once your child is ready for a new pair.

 

When your kids are young, this is ideal, as kids grow out of shoes fairly quickly. There are dozens of Nike shoe styles in a range of colors, and the subscription box itself is very kid-friendly, and comes equipped with stickers and fun small-sized items.

 

5) Spa Services

Heading over to the spa is one of the biggest indulgences on this list, and it’s one you should definitely take advantage of. Not only will it afford you some private time, but it’s also beneficial for the mind and body. If you’ve been having a stressful time (what mom doesn’t?), you’ll benefit from the unique way that spas are designed to calm your stress and ease your mind. A sauna can help you improve your respiratory health, as well as flush toxins from your body. And many people actually leave the spa feeling rejuvenated and more confident than they did when they went in.

 

 

Brokenness to Wholeness

“Not that I have already obtained this or am already perfect, but I press on to make it my own, because Christ Jesus has made me his own. Brothers, I do not consider that I have made it my own. But one thing I do: forgetting what lies behind and straining forward to what lies ahead, I press on toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus.

Do you have a deep longing in your heart? Are you looking for a love that completes you? Are you looking for satisfaction? Let me share my story with you. 

Growing up, I had a complete family, everything I needed was provided and my life wasn’t at all difficult.  I did fairly well in school, I never got into any sort of trouble but inside, something in me was broken. I felt unloved, incomplete and broken. I was always looking for love and appreciation – from my family, from my friends and from boys. Eventually, I realized that nothing satisfies. I still felt sad and empty.

Then I met Christ, and I was amazed by the fact that He really loves me. In  my imperfections, He accepted me and even gave His own life for me. It was a love that completed me and revealed who I really was. For the first time, I actually felt what it was  like to be loved wholeheartedly and to have joy and  peace in my heart. 

Since then, Christ has been my true north, my one true love. My anchor as I sail on this journey. There are days that storms come, when I suddenly feel inadequate and broken, but as Christ reminds me how I am now His, I press on forward, because I know He is there and that, is enough for me. I am now whole in Him.
