Discipline is the price of freedom and there are no short cuts.
It starts with a decision
followed by a commitment of sacrifice and perseverance.
~Mark Hamby, Lamplighter Publishing
 
 
I thought this quote was amazing!  It applies to so many areas of one's life.
At first glance, it would appear that discipline and freedom are polar opposites, but really, if you think about it ~ discipline paves the way for freedom.
 
When discipline is applied, results follow.
 
 
Discipline is the act (or the art) of saying, "NO" to self.
 
 
I am so thankful for the women in my life who have discipled me throughout the years.  There is so much to accomplish in a day as a wife, mom, homekeeper, and homeschooler - really the to-do list can be daunting.  How does one accomplish it all? 
They taught me about priorities.
 
God
Husband
Children
Home
Extended Family
Church Family
 
It takes discipline.  One must purpose to keep priorities and make choices so that the priorities stay in this order.
 
The result....joy and freedom.

Have a wonderful day!
