The Power of a Positive Woman in Her Home- Week 2- Making Your Home A Haven Fall Challenge
Women Living Well / Good Morning Girls
“Sometimes life throws us a curve ball. As we seek to make our homes a haven, reality strikes — headaches, hormones, financial pressures, and difficult relationships stand in the way of our dreams.
Recently, I was listening to a speaker who said, “we should balance every negative interaction with 10 positive ones
There is power in being a positive woman! Your family will smile back at you! It’s contagious!
Last week, I encouraged you to light a candle and pray for peace and patience in your home. I want to again – encourage you to continue lighting your candles and this week – let’s add to our candle, classical, worship or upbeat music that your family enjoys.
It has a strange effect on people. Certain songs can flood our minds with good memories. Others can touch a painful and tender place deep inside of us and cause us to cry. Other songs make us lift our hands in worship or to break down and boogie!”
Here’s this week’s challenge:
Keep your candles burning, your prayers going and add soft music in your home. Choose worship, classical, jazz or another form of peaceful music that the family enjoys. Focus on using peaceful words and maintaining peaceful relationships. Work on gentleness and self-control this week.
Bonus Challenge – Try exchanging every negative interaction with 5 positives ones(10 is a bit much! Lol!). We started doing this in our home last week and it brought a lot of laughs but also a lot of awareness to the kids and my husband and I of how often we are negative! It sure isn’t easy to live out but there is power in being a positive woman.”
Music changes the atmosphere of our homes.

As You may already have read, I started playing music during the day when Danny was gone and again when Danny was not in the kitchen.
He is hard of hearing sometimes and music often distracts him when we are talking.
I started off with Mozart. I have been switching between that and a few other CD’S . One of Which Is Alan Jackson’s Gospel Music . I enjoy it.
I am using my mini crock pot with candle wax in it instead of the candle more often now. I can leave it on without worry about it every minute.
Danny commented the other night how much he has enjoyed the apple scent.
I guess maybe an apple pie would be good.
It’s been a long time since I have baked a pie.
That would make the kitchen smell wonderful.
I am really enjoying this challenge.
I find myself in a better MOOD ALL DAY LONG which sets the stage for OUR NIGHTS.
Am I going to do the Bonus Challenge?
Bonus Challenge – Try exchanging every negative interaction with 5 positives ones.
I am Certainly going to work on it.
The best part of this challenge.
I finally told Danny about the Fall Challenge.
He didn’t say anything for awhile and then he said,
“I like it.”
Then he surprised me with this request:
“Can I Pick Some Music Out? “
I didn’t hesitate.
(Danny and I don’t always agree on music. In FACT, WE SELDOM AGREE.
SO I AM TRUSTING HIM TO PICK SOMETHING I WILL LIKE AS WELL.
THIS COULD GET INTERESTING.)
