Has there ever been a single mother who wasn’t busy? One of the most common questions Jennifer gets is, “How do I manage my time better?” In this episode, Jennifer gives single mamas some real, practical tips on managing their time in the midst of the never-ending needs and to-dos throughout the day.

1. Have a plan. We must be intentional and not assume that it will eventually get better. The busyness of single motherhood is real!
2. Implement family time. It's not about quantity, but quality. It'll help you shed the guilt!
3. Have a productive versus busy day.
4. Have fun. Laugh. A lot!
5. Rest. Be intentional about the rest. 15 minutes may be all you get, but soak in the lavender-infused bubble bath anyway!
6. Prioritize the top 3 things on your list.
7. Have daily quiet time with the Lord.
