This Create a Home of Peace Workbook is the first tool I ever created with a Spirit-led strategy to overcome the overwhelm in our home.
I spent years stalking blogs and women who seemed to have it all together with these fabulous systems for cleaning complete with photos of happy children doing chores and whistling like Snow White and her Seven Dwarves! And while watching their perfectly put together lives I realized I was comparing my lack to their abundance. (Thanks, God, for this smackdown. I needed it!)
Sister, I tried everything: those fancy popsicle sticks, sticker charts, bribing allowance, a daily list, a simple to do with each child’s name. You name it, girl, I tried it. And I failed miserably. Every. Single. Time.
I discovered several different reasons why their systems didn’t actually work for me.
- I was inconsistent because I really didn’t have a system in place. I was jumping from place to place to place wondering why in the world I wasn’t gaining any ground.
- My children were not their children.
- My husband was not their husband.
- My life was not their life.
I knew that if our home was going to change, we needed systems and routines that had spoken expectations that worked for our family.
This chart isn’t about decluttering or minimizing, but it is about putting a simple cleaning system in place so that your Martha heart can find rest at the feet of Jesus like Mary.
It is a step-by-step guide to creating your own chore chart and a home of peace so that you set clear expectations for each family member.
I designed this to work for any family dynamic!
It’s an action-packed 23 page PDF to help you create the revolving tasks your family and your home need to bring peace.
