31 Day Fall Challenge Making Your Home a Haven

I am a big fan of Women Living Well Ministries, a blog about marriage, parenting and homemaking.  They are currently doing a 31 Day Fall Challenge – Making Your Home a Haven.

What makes a home a haven? Is it having a home that looks like it popped out of Better Homes and Gardens with unbelievable decorating? Is it a home that has massive amounts of toys, food to feast on, video games stacked high and every movie imaginable to view? Is it a certain number of square feet, a separate bedroom for each child, or the neighborhood you live in?

No. It is not the things we have or the things we do not have that make our homes a haven. It’s you – my dear reader – you are the key to making the home a haven.

They go on to describe two different kinds of households.  In the first household, the woman is distant.  In the second household the woman is engaged.  While I would like to say that I am like household #2 100% of the time, some of the examples in the first household…well, kinda made me stop and think.  So, I am all in for this challenge!  I don’t think there is anything more important than my family that I could invest my time and energy in….

Week #1 challenge:

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.
