Homemakers Challenge - 31 Days to Clean

 

For the last 2 weeks, I’ve been spending time reading through Sarah Mae’s ebook 31 Days to Clean. It is an easy read that offers 31 days of challenges and ways to get your house ~ and most importantly your HEART ~ in order. Each day offers a ‘Mary and Martha’ challenge for the day ~ one something that can physically be completed to take care of the physical environment around you and the other to look at various heart issues.

In short, it’s something that is completely doable and encouraging all at the same time. :)

Joyful Mothering is hosting a challenge during the month of May and I’m just now getting around to posting how I’ve been participating…even though we’re ten days in. The nutshell ~ so far, so good! Many of the things that have been the Martha challenges are things that I generally keep on top of, so those haven’t been too difficult overall.

Sometimes getting to the heart of the matter IS. Day 9 addressed the issue of laziness, which is often an area that tends to rear its ugly head {over and over again}. This verse in the daily study really stuck with me:

“Whatever you do, do it wholeheartedly as though you were working for your real master and not merely for humans.”

Colossians 3:23 {God’s Word Translation}

Putting off can be so easy to do, especially when my little earthly offspring are driving me nuts and I don’t FEEL like doing it for them. Or I want just five more minutes to do what I want to do.

But that’s not what I’m asked to do, is it? I’m asked to respond with my WHOLE heart in whatever I do. Scrubbing a toilet. Folding endless laundry. Sorting through seasonal clothes that a certain 6 year old has completely unorganized.

This week I printed off a round of my Daily To Do List or Daily Docket. I’m using these to keep track of my Six List {from Day 6 of 31 Days to Clean}. Having a pretty ‘to-do’ list helps me out immensely and also helps keep me focused on the things that I NEED to do each day.
