I've been seeing this new eBook everywhere online lately! It looks so good and I really would love to read it and Lord willing, get a cleaner home out of it. : ) I love clean homes!
I was raised in a home where cleaning was regularly done and something my family was able to quickly do. Being married, having a little one and all the normal demands on life I have found deep cleaning (or most cleaning should I say?) to not be quite as frequent. Before I was married and became a momma, while a stay-at-home daughter it was much easier. We all had our jobs and we'd switch out for each other if needed to get everything done. At least that's how I felt...
I love hosting people, I grew up with it being a normal part of life. We would have someone staying at our house just to visit at least once a month. Sometimes we'd go a month or two without hosting, other times we'd have guests every weekend for a month or two, we also would have church meetings in our home quite often.
A clean home is so much more inviting and a blessing to others! It feels great for the host while having others in their home and it makes the guest feel more welcome and comfortable.
From the reviews I've read on this book I think it's written for the natural cleaners and for the ones who struggle in this area. :)
A little snip-it from the author:
"I am not a natural when it comes to cleaning. In fact, sometimes I think my DNA is allergic to it! However, I know that if I am to care for my home, and more importantly my family, I need to persevere in creating a clean, peaceful home environment (not a perfect one!).
31 Days to Clean is about the “why” and the vision and the heart for taking care of our domains. Each day I encourage you with some thoughts and ideas, and then we put those ideas to action.
After each days reading, you will be given two challenges:
- The Mary Challenge -Something you do that encourages/engages your heart
- The Martha Challenge – Specific cleaning tasks"
