Making My Home A Haven is important to me. Sharing homemaking skills. Recipes and food. Bible Studies. This is a treasure chest of goodies. So take a seat. Have a glass of tea and enjoy. You will learn all about who I am.
Today’s memory verse Today is the third day of Making Your Home A Haven Bible study. My gratitude and prayer list. There are so many verses to pick for my SOAK today.I particularly liked this verse, Psalm 37:3 Trust in the Lord , and do good; so shalt thou dwell in the land, and verily […]

I love being a homemaker! Creating a peaceful, cozy place for my family to live and for guests to enjoy is something that comes almost naturally for me. But as much as I love it, I still have to fight the enemies of homemaking. What are the enemies of homemaking? The Daily Connoisseur recently discussed […]
The kids’ table can feel like an afterthought for a lot of people because you might think the kids don’t care. However, my kids always love when I make something a little more special for them and my daughter has even started looking forward to it on holidays and birthdays. I love seeing the delight in their eyes when I take a little more time to do something for them with all the chaos the holiday season brings.
I, very easily, get caught up in the details of cooking and all the food preparation. But at the end of the day, I’m most thankful for my family and the gift of motherhood these children have given me. Taking a few extra minutes to make something more special for them during these big celebrations is the least I can do in return.

From Sarah :
Clean Mama ran this challenge in January. They just finished it.
It is written so you can start it any time. Do as much or as little as you want to.
“The Simply Clean Decluttering Challenge is intended as a way to encourage daily decluttering and slow and steady progress. You’ll get what you put into it – I promise that even if you just do a little decluttering, you’ll be closer to having a decluttered home than you were before you started. Keep going and enjoy the process!
“January comes in with a new year, a new hope that this year can be different. It can. It will. Every year is different. The question is whether we will actually be different. After a January of purging, will we be different?
How To Get Organized: Printables & Checklists To Help You Get Started
I’ve created quite a few free printables to help you with your organizing and decluttering tasks around your home. You don’t have to print these all out now, if you don’t want, because I’ll introduce them slowly, over the course of the year, as they are applicable to various organizing challenges. However, if you want to add any of them to your notebook now, you can.
Each person, family and home is unique so lists will only get you so far, but they are a great way to get started, to reference when you need ideas, and to get you back on track if you start to get disorganized.
The printables and checklists I’ve provided will also help you brainstorm ideas for how to use various spaces in your home, and where to store certain items to get the most use out of the space you’ve got.
Many of these printables can be combined into one book, called a “household notebook,” which I suggest you personalize to fit your family’s routines, schedules, wants and needs. It can be a working manual to keep your house organized and your family life on track.
