I am so excited to announce that I am writing a new series for the month of October called “31 Days to Bless Your Home, and How to Have Fun Doing It Too!” Fall is my favorite time of year to focus on making our homes a warm and inviting haven for our families and loved ones, and I am about to burst with ideas that I just cannot wait to share with you!
The series will run for 31 days, from Wednesday, October 1st through Friday, October 31st.
As women, we have such a unique opportunity to minister to our families and all who enter our homes. It is never drudgery when we view it as the gift from God that it is to be able to create a nurturing, comfortable, and pleasing atmosphere for the ones we love. Even women who work outside of the home full time can learn to reduce stress and have fun while they set the tone for their homes. I am not about setting a cookie-cutter mold for all women to conform, but no matter what your unique situation is, I hope every woman who reads this learns to enjoy creating a haven for their families and friends.
These older women must train the younger women to love their husbands and their children, to live wisely and be pure, to work in their homes, to do good, and to be submissive to their husbands. Then they will not bring shame on the word of God.

We will have five weekly themes. Each week will include at least one video, a related Bible study, a recipe, a craft or fun activity to do with your family, and special weekly and daily challenges for you to try. It is going to be so much fun!
Week 1: October 1-5 (Wednesday – Sunday), “The Spirit of the Home.” This week, we will focus on creating an atmosphere in which the Fruit of the Spirit abounds.
Week 2: October 6-12, “The Sensual Home.” We will explore creative ways to use our five senses to bring beauty and warmth to our homes.
Week 3: October 13-19, “The Glamorous Side of Homemaking.” Yep, there is no avoiding it! I will share tips for cleaning, organizing, and decluttering our homes and creating great habits.
Week 4: October 20-26, “The Fun of Home.” We will learn to put aside our stress for a while and learn to truly enjoy our husbands and children. I will include lots of ideas for just plain having fun!
Week 5: October 27-31, “Preparing for the Holidays.” I will share ideas to help you prepare ahead of time to make Thanksgiving, Christmas, and New Year’s meaningful and special for your family without making you lose your mind!
I can’t wait to meet with you as we learn together how to make our homes places of retreat and blessing for our families! We are starting this Wednesday, so let’s get ready!
