Making our homes a haven

I recently read a blog, Passionate Homemaking and saw a post on making your home a haven. The challenge was to make our homes a blessing to our families and guests. There were 5 steps to help you purposeful plan your day and be prepared.

  1. Morning devotions - this should the first thing we do each morning to get us in the right mindset.
  2. Make myself look presentable for the day - if for nothing else, to look nice for our husbands before they leave for the day, also you can be ready before your children rise.
  3. Prepare Breakfast - think the night ahead and prepare (put out bowls, spoons, cereal, etc.)
  4. Quick house pick up - definitely not in-depth housecleaning, just picking up, cleaning up dishes, throw in a load of laundry, etc.
  5. Make dinner preparations - Lay out from the freezer what you plan to cook, get all ingredients ready, etc.

Just some words of encouragement. Please visit this blog - Passionate Homemaking - it is neat.
