Challenge: 31 Days to Change
This challenge and this ebook came along just in time. It was like it was meant to be. I can do all the FlyLady stuff or read all the books by the local Queen of Clean but in the end if my heart, motivation, and reasoning do not line up for what my Lord has deemed for me as a wife, mother, daughter, friend... woman... then it is all in vain. My ultimate desire is that my husband, my children... and then myself.... would feel comfortable in our home. Safe. Relaxed. I want them to see that from me as well. I don't want frantic and task to be my default mode.
While I have already skimmed over most of the month there are heart things that I will find VERY challenging. I am not sure that the "tasks" will help get my WHOLE house clean it will help in some trouble spots. Some of the tasks don't apply. (For example, I don't have a window in my kitchen to clean) But I will supplement other things that I am doing and try to keep up with what has been working so far. There have been some recent developments that will challenge me further in a good way but those things will be revealed later in the month as we encounter different challenges and tasks throughout the month.
If you would like to join in on the challenge you can click on the photo in this post and it will take you to a series of posts that will let you know what to do. I appreciate that we will be taking the weekends off for this challenge (Which also means it doesn't start until Monday, May 2nd). It will take us a little beyond May 31st but that is just fine. You can also buy the ebook as a download or for the kindle for $4.99 -- totally worth it even if you don't do the challenge. It will be an interesting journey to take with other women (one of which is a long-time friend!)
Let the cleaning (of heart, mind, and house) begin!!
