I am a newer member of the 5 am club but am not new to rising early. I love to rise early and start my day before my husband is awake. I like the quiet and this time is special to me.

When I read about the 5am club I was excited as it would give me a way to not only enjoy my early quiet time but include the person I should be starting my day with anyway, Jesus.

I find I have to stay focused during my early morning time as I could easily start in on the laundry or some other cleaning task. I set the coffee pot to go off at 5am with my cup ready, have my bible and journal sitting on the desk, and ask God to protect this time with Him.
