I have done this and I can tell you it works wonders! I didn't make excuses, fault-find or worry how I was going to get the time to be one with myself and my Lord, I just did it! Rather than fill that quiet time with chores and draining phone calls, try sitting down and being quiet.
The noise of people and things can be overwhelming. Some sounds are just far too loud especially if you are going through your menstrual cycle. It isn't necessary that children have to play with every loud toy or have games on without headphones. Take control of the noise and the movement sometimes in your home, and you just might get some of those quiet activities you have been putting off for quite sometime complete like praying for starters while waiting for your heavenly Father's answers.
