I have to jump in and say a few words, because I really love what she has put together! I saw it a few weeks and just hesitated to purchase for some reason. Then, I got an e-mail from a childhood friend suggesting I take a look at it - I had company and waited a few more days and then saw a half price coupon code on Money Saving Mom. So, I jumped at that chance and am so glad I did! (So sorry the sale is over now.)
In case you haven't heard much - I'll recap for you. The title really does tell it all, each day - there is a Mary Challenge and a Martha Challenge.
Confession: I have not done one single chore she has suggested yet. And, I've only completed one Mary Challenge. I love Sarah Mae's heart behind this and in it and through it. It is going to take me long beyond 31 days just to process all the heart things related to my home not to mention actually doing some cleaning!
The first Mary Challenge was thinking about why we want a clean home - here is what I came up with:
Lord, please enable me to joyfully make this home into a cozy, inviting, peaceful and God-honoring haven. I want to remove the stress of clutter and disfunction and replace it with laughter and order. As I sweet up dirt and wipe dust - please create a clean heart and mind in me as well. And, let a peaceful home make me a more peaceful wife and mama. May You always feel welcomed here and at home in our hearts where we seek to glorify You!
Why do you want a clean home?
