Making your Home a Haven Challenge





I am always striving to make my home a better place.  So I am joining Courtney at Women Living Well to do a 31 Day Challenge!!  If you would like to join, you can go here!



Women Living Well 30 Day Challenge:
November 5th -Go buy an extra large candle and light a candle everyday in your home. I will be starting mine in the morning! But you can start yours at dinner time. Do what makes sense for your family. I will be placing mine in the kitchen – the main hub of my home. Each time the candle catches your eye, say a prayer for peace in your home.

November 12th Play soft music everyday in your home. Choose worship, classical or another form of peaceful music that the family enjoys. I’ll be playing Christmas music!  Focus on using peaceful words and maintaining peaceful relationships. Work on gentleness this week.

November 19th – Focus on the kitchen, the heart of the home. Cook things with pleasant aromas – like homemade bread, pies, and cookies.  Don’t wait to have a reason to make something special – do it simply to show love to your family. Invite your kids and/or hubby to cook along side of you – make memories in the kitchen – test tasting, being creative, laughing and loving. Remove discontentment and give thanks to God for the home God has given you in which to create a haven for your family.

November 26th - Decorate! The holidays are upon us.  Ann Voskamp says “Creating is good theology.  In the beginning God created.”  Be creative as you make your home warm, cozy and inviting for the holidays.  Think about ways you can keep Christ in Christmas even in the way you decorate.

  1. I saw this earlier at WLW. I think it's a great idea. I want my home to be a place of peace and a haven for my loved ones. Good luck to you with this, I hope you have a more peace filled home!
