When do you get your quiet time with God on a daily basis?

I have four kids, I'm trying to figure out a good time for quiet time with God. I'd like time to read 10 chapters out of the Bible, work on memory versus, pray, and work on my Bible study.
I know other moms do this. How/when do you do it?

  • Usually in the morning. I like time to myself, enjoy the quiet while it lasts, enjoy a cup of coffee and read a book, too (but not the Bible)

  • I get up early so that I can have time in the morning before anyone else is up.

  • Either in the morning after the kids go to school, or at night when they are asleep. I also have a Bible study with a friend once a week.

  • Our schedule constantly changes around here so it's when I have quiet, alone time to myself either in the morning or in the evening.

  • I have my quiet time while I nurse my son in the middle of the night. If you want to read that much of Scripture at a time, you may want to try listening to the Bible. You can get a free download of the NT here:

    I also heard of a mom with something like 10 children, who taught her children that when mom had her apron over head that she was spending time with God, and that they had to play quietly until she took the apron off.
