STOP Running on Empty…a terrific resource for helping you invest in YOURSELF

on October 18, 2016 by Jami Balmet 0 comments

Please note: This bonus offer has ended! But there are still some other fabulous bonuses offered with the conference this year including an incredible Goal Setting Course! Come on over and check it out

Physical and mental exhaustion is something I am far too familiar with. I’ve had three pregnancies in the last four years, which is exhausting enough in and of itself. 

Plus throw in the fact that TWO of those pregnancies were twin boys. So now I’m sitting here with four little boys three and under and a baby girl on the way. Yeah, the last four years have been a blur of exhaustion, nursing, and changing poopy diapers. 

Now, I wouldn’t change a thing about it. I am so blessed and thankful for my amazing family…but that doesn’t change the fact that I’ve had to learn a thing or two these last few years about taking care of myself. 


You see, I stink at it. I don’t often get enough sleep, I struggle to drink enough water, I have absolutely no exercise routine (even though I know I desperately need it) and taking a little bit of time to do something fun for myself? Hah! As if I have the time? 

Does this sound familiar? 

I have a sneaking suspicion (okay, maybe it’s the hundreds of emails a year I get on this subject) that I’m not alone in this. In fact, I’m pretty sure that most women stink at really taking care of themselves and investing in themselves. 

But the thing is – it’s vitally important to stop every once in a while, even for 5-15 minutes, to refresh ourselves, fill ourselves up, and maybe even spend a few minutes reading a book or sitting outside in the sun. As women, we have to stop and refuel. To pour back into ourselves so that we have the energy and the JOY to pour back into serving our families and the Lord. 

And that’s why I’ve been developing a 7 part audio series all about investing in yourself…all for God’s Glory! (Find out how to get it for FREE below)


Taking the time to invest in myself, to care for my body, and invest in my spiritual life are all vital parts of being a homemaker. I need to take a little bit of time each day to invest in myself so that I have the energy and joy to pour back into my family…otherwise I might just deal with some severe burn out and face my days with a begrudging attitude instead of joy in the Lord! 

Do you crave a little more energy, joy, and enthusiasm when facing your day? Do you wish that when you hear the kids stirring after their nap time, that you had the energy and focus to greet that sound with joy and energy to tackle the rest of your day instead of the dreaded 3 o’clock exhaustion? 

This all starts with taking just a little bit of time to invest in yourself. I have learned this the hard way after 4 years of running around like a mad woman trying to get everything done…and then hitting a wall of tiredness, depression, and laziness. I want to greet my day with joy and energy! 

Here’s a little sneak peek of the bonus audio course: 

Throughout this 7 part audio series, we are going to be diving into all the aspects of taking care of ourselves (and why this truly matters if we want to have a thriving home and relationship with the Lord). In the series we talk about: 

  • Avoiding burn out and letting go of GUILT when we do invest a little in ourselves
  • Making time for what you love (in 15 minutes a day)
  • Taking care of yourself – exercise and eating well
  • Investing in your Spiritual Life
  • Giving yourself GRACE…especially when life falls apart
  • Wrapping it all together for God’s Glory! 


This audio series has been a ton of fun to develop and something that I so desperately needed for myself! If you struggle with learning to invest a little time in yourself (or you have no idea what that even looks like), then this audio series would be perfect for you! 

When it officially launches next week, you can purchase it for $25 and get access right away to go through it. BUT when you purchase a premium ticket to this year’s Homemaking Ministries Online Conference through October 20th, you will get FREE access to the audio series! 

The conference officially kicks off next week (October 25th-28th) and when you register by Thursday for a premium ticket not only will you get free access to this audio series but you will also get a full ticket to the conference (you can listen to the sessions anytime…you get to keep them forever!) and my brand new goal setting course (which you get immediate access to).
