In your Home and Homeschool
Thank you for the emails I received from yesterday’s article. I am so happy that it helped you to stop beating yourself up when you start comparing yourself to others. Remember that you are fearfully and wonderfully made, and you are uniquely chosen for your family.
Your zone mission today is to have a 27 Fling Boogie in the Living Room or Family Room. I want you to make this a game with your children. Use your timer for 5 minutes. Tell them to gather anything that needs to go into the trash. You can have the trash bag handy, so you can see what they toss.
Then, set the timer for 5 minutes again and ask them to find things that need to be put away. As they are putting things away, you can use the next 5 minutes to look for things in the Living Room or Family Room that need to be given away.
From my years of mentoring ladies in decluttering and organizing, I know that some of you might have some Christmas gifts or decorations still in the Living Room or Family Room. Use this opportunity to finish putting things away today. If your children still have toys that need to be put away, help them find a place for their things.
If you have homeschool materials overtaking your home, declutter and organize. Teach your children where their book go, and if you find homeschool things around the house, remind them to pick up behind themselves daily. Textbooks and papers can quickly mount up if they are not put away daily.
Remember that the first step in starting something is the hardest step. Take a step today on something you have been putting off. Do it early in the day, so you feel like you conquered the world for the rest of the day!
How are your Home Blessings coming along? If you are following the suggestions I have for you each day, you should have washed your sheets, dusted, and vacuumed already this week. If you have not done these yet, set aside 30 minutes and do them quickly.
You do not have to do these perfectly. You just need to start and do what you can. Dust around the items on the flat surfaces and vacuum the middles and high traffic areas of your home.
You can do it!
Your Zone Mission today is to do a 27 Fling Boogie in the Living Room or Family Room. Find things to throw away, put away, and give away.
Your Home Blessing for today is to wipe windows and mirrors.
My menu plan for Wednesday is soup and sandwiches.
Have a blessed day!
