So how do I, as a wife and mother, know what activities and projects I should be involved in? There are so many good things out there that need to be accomplished. How do I know which of those I should take on?
I think the following is a good litmus test. If the activity drains me so that I don't have as much to give to my husband and children, it is not the right time for me to be involved. If the activity enriches my life so I have more to give my family, that is a worthwhile use of my time.
So what extracurricular activities do we have that enrich us? And which ones do we have that drain us?
