You want to have a home that your family loves. You want a home that is comfortable, warm, loving and welcoming to those who live there and for those who visit.
No one wakes up one day and says, “I want a home filled with chaos and fighting!”. That’s a home that everyone avoids-including yourself.
But saying and wishing for a home that gives life isn’t going to make it happen. Murphy’s law says it best, anything that can go wrong, will go wrong.
Isn’t that the truth? We are sinful people living in a fallen world. We are more prone to chaos, laziness and fighting because of our sinful nature.
The same is also true for our homes. If you leave your home to chance, it will fall apart. The dishes aren’t going to wash themselves and the children won’t turn out to be God-fearing responsible adults who remember their home life in a good light if we aren’t intentional. Day in and day out.
Anything good and godly in life requires work and intention.
Yes, eventually you may get to those dishes. Once the fruit flies bother you enough.
Yes, you may plan an awesome Thanksgiving meal. But what about the rest of the year?
Are you creating a home that brings life? One that people want to be around? A home filled with laughter and love? A home that leaves a legacy of faith for the next generation? A home that your adult children will miss when they’re gone?
Thankfully, Sally Clarkson wrote the perfect book to help us create the home that we all envision in our heads. We can finally stop the wishful thinking because now we have a blueprint from a Titus 2 woman on how to actually turn our wishes into reality.
Join us as we go through The Lifegiving Home chapter by chapter this January in a 4-week long Lifegiving Home Challenge! Each Monday, Wednesday, and Friday meet us here on the blog for inspiration and a challenge to actually put this great advice and wisdom from Sally into practice. You’ll get the accountability and motivation you need to create the kind of home you long for.
You can also join the exclusive Facebook group to glean more ideas and encouragement from other women, there will be a giveaway to kick off the challenge and a free downloadable checklist to keep you motivated each step of the way! It is going to be a great month!
