Karen Stott » | Sharing my mess, my hope & my journey cultivating an Intentional Home

Category Archives: All things Business

Lately I’ve been getting a lot of requests from business owners to showcase their products or endorse their business.   While I’m super flattered that people find me interesting enough to be a spokesperson, that’s just not who I am.  I would fail miserably as a salesperson, at least in the traditional sense of the word. […]

  It started last night in the kitchen… Isaac was whipping about, sautéing meat and prepping dinner. “I had a tough conversation with the kids today.” “yeah?” I replied…”You know when they say that I’m stern, and I don’t feel like I am, but they feel like I am?” “uh… yeah.” came out of my […]

  • Dawn Masters - So very true! We get so caught up in the whirlwind of life that we cease living and we merely exist.

  • Ashley Kester - Love you friend! Thank you for sharing your heart. You are not alone in this! I need to implement some of these things in my life as well.

  • Alisa Nelson - Thank you. My oldest is only 2.5 but I started my business fairly recently and feel the compulsion to always be working on it. Sadly, I know it’s true that I would choose work over my kids because I crave that passionate&successful feeling and I’ve been feeling the nudge to do several of what you listed above the past few weeks. Thankfully, a family friend is now watching my kids 1 day per week giving me a full day to work and focus so I can more easily pick my head up. Setting a more concrete schedule (with specific ideas for what the kids and I will do during the “play” times) has really helped me stick to working in the early hours and nap time.

    It’s encouraging to know I’m not the only one who struggles here. It’s easy to start believing the lies about being a bad mom. Praying for you now as you head into your media quiet hours.

  • Laura Yang - Love this so much, Karen!

  • Ginger Gregory Loper - thank you, thank you for this heartfelt, real, candid and inspiring post!

  • Rebecca Lewter - Thank you for sharing this!! I need to apply those to my life now!

It’s here! It’s here!  And wow… it was so worth the wait.  I’ve been working on these lovely journals for about 6 months, and then another 3 of production time and I am just smitten that they are finally in my hands.   I’ve already received so many sweet comments from those of you who’ve purchased […]

  • L. Heggie - Ah! Karen – this makes me so excited! Thank you, sweet friend, for pouring your heart into a product created in order to help us pour out our concessions to the Lord. I am so grateful for you! XO

  • Casey Hollins-Sprouse - I love journals so much :) This is great!

  • Angie Ochoa - I NEED this!!! I need something tangible that will help me to really get back to the basics with my walk with God. This is BEAUTIFUL!!!!

  • Rebekah Wallace - This journal is the perfect balance between keeping track of tasks while not being a slave to them. I love the spiral format and that I can set it on the kitchen counter or on the desk beside me to scribble my thoughts as they come.

  • Caci Hyman - Love this and the design!

  • LaRae Humes - I love the intentionality (not a real word) of these journals! They are gorgeous and the fact that the profit is going toward your adoption is a beautiful testimony!

  • Alexandra Cintron - These are absolutely gorgeous journals. I love them. P.s. pick me! :)

  • Emily Ku - What a great idea! I have a separate agenda and journal and never thought about combining them.

  • Katie Ingraham - I am so excited for you! These seem perfect for busy mamas to make sure we stop and really take in the moments. I can’t wait to get my hands on one:)

  • Lauren Lawrence - I love this idea! A journal AND planner that isn’t rigid or super scheduled but something that helps me keep on task as well as keep my focus on where it should be- The Lord and the people He has placed in my life. I could really use this as a mom of a 2 year old and a 3 month old.

  • Maren Miller - These look amazing! I have been searching for something exactly like this and have never found it… until now! Woop!

  • Melissa Pepin - I adore this journal. Its silly to say that a little book can change your perspective but Ive said it over and over again about this journal..it has LITERALLY been a deep breath of fresh air, intentional heart, and perspective in my journalling routine. I kinda want to order a bunch of these just in case one day they don’t exist so I can still make sure its available for me to use! hehehe

  • Hannah Schonewill - I love the organization of this that allows daily thoughts and prayers to be intertwined with the daily schedule!
