Coffee and Pearls – STQ: Sugar, Sex, Lent

Thinking of decluttering for Lent? The Kindle version of my book Not Of This World is free from March 7-11. Get it here: https://amzn.to/2Tl2Cgk
 
The free Lenten Minimalism Challenge started yesterday! Join at www.facebook.com/groups/catholicminimalism
 
2. I’m totally off sugar and feeling like a superhero for all the things I’ve said no to. I did buy a sugar-free caramel syrup to put in my coffee though and that’s been delightful one or two mornings a week!
 
3. Your goals are like a campfire, not a chair. When you build a chair, you can expect it’ll be there tomorrow. When you build a campfire, you know you’ll have to rebuild it every morning. Focusing on goals and reigniting that fire should be a daily activity!
 
4. Did you see that all 9 Season of Little House on the Prairie are now on Amazon Prime??? This is one of the few shows we let our children watch. Check it out here: https://amzn.to/2EVmbmI
 
5. I’m 12.5 weeks pregnant. My morning sickness and exhaustion are fading so I’m looking forward to a smooth sailing second trimester! Food is still a complete wildcard. I have no idea what I can eat or not but the baby promptly tells me when my husband says a food or when I smell a food! Currently, the baby always wants cheeseburgers and I’m blessed that my husband makes ah-mazing cheeseburgers! He won’t tell me how he spices them!
 
6. Sex in the middle of the night has been surprisingly good and has a lot less pressure! Listen to the podcast version of this and I explain why!
 
7. I am doing the Jesus Tree from Catholic Sprouts https://catholicsprouts.com/Jesus-tree with the girls for Lent. I love the Jesse Tree of Advent so I was excited when she put this out. Order it now and start late because you know what, anything worth doing is worth doing poorly!

Coffee and Pearls – STQ: Pregnant, Speaking, and Rosaries

1. Still pregnant, not eating sugar but eating all the crackers. 
 
2. Still biking and doing kettlebell swings.
 
3. My parents moved out so we have more rooms for our many, many nappers. 
 
4. Going to be in Vancouver, WA on Feb. 23rd and in Batesville, IN on March 9th if you want to come see me speak!
 
5. I’ve been praying the rosary every night with my husband, a practice we’ve said we would do for eight years but… hey…. surprise pregnancies tend to bring you to your knees so now felt like a good time! Will be telling you all about the Aroma Rosary I’m using next week!
 
6. My brain is filled with cotton balls. 
 
7. Been embroidering and playing Rack-o in bed with my 8-year old. Thanks Happy Nome Nest Goods Theresa for holding my hand and showing me what to do!

Coffee and Pearls – How To Get More Done In Less Time

I was putting together a webinar for my Marian Mastermind group about how Catholic women who do business online can get more stuff done in less time when I realized… most all of it applied to moms even if they don’t have businesses! I pulled all the relevant parts and put it in this week’s episode of Coffee & Pearls!
Do you wish you could get more done in less time?
Do you want to know how moms can get things done even with little kids around?
Do you wish you could stop wasting so much time on your phone or online?
This is the Coffee & Pearls episode for you!
And in this episode, I also explain that even though all the business books say NOT to let people into your course after you’ve closed it, I got so many emails and Facebook messages saying people were out of town and missed out on signing up for Catholic Women Shine and guys, it crushed me. I felt so bad. Then I decided, who cares what the man says? I’m my own boss and I say I can reopen it!
So, I SUPER DUER MEAN IT THIS TIME! Catholic Women Shine is open until midnight PST January 8th. You have to sign up by Tuesday night and then it closes FOREVER. Or at least for many, many months. 
I hope you love this episode of Coffee & Pearls. If you have any other “getting stuff done” challenge that you want help solving, reply to this email and I’ll make an episode about it or answer it in a Seven Quick Takes!
Blessings, 
Sterling
P.S. I’m not sure if you should bother since I plan on winning the whole thing but if you were interested, you can join me for the www.fitandholychallenge.com that starts January 16th. 
P.P.S. If you happen to be a Catholic mom who wants to do business online (or already does), then sign up for this Catholic Women Crush It webinar!
