I am so excited to start this new series of posts! I just purchased Sarah Mae's new ebook 31 Days To Clean. Starting May 1, 2011 me as well as tons of other bloggers are going to read the book daily and follow it's challenges. If you click on the button at the top of the page it will direct you to the list of other bloggers you can read during this challenge!
This is from Amazon:
"Whether you need to be more like Mary and approach housekeeping from a God-pleasing heart, or you need to be more like Martha and get your physical house in order, this book is for you!" -Angela, HomegrownMom.com
Journey with Sarah Mae for 31 Days as you get your home and your heart in order. Give Sarah Mae 31 days and she'll give you not only a cleaner home, but a vision for one.
31 Days to Clean is about the "why" and the vision and the heart for taking care of your domain. Each day you will be encouraged with some thoughts and ideas on the heart of cleaning, and then you will put those ideas to action.
After each days reading, you will be given two challenges:
The Mary Challenge -Something you do that encourages/engages your heart
The Martha Challenge - Specific cleaning tasks
31 Days to Clean is a faith journey towards ruling, subduing, and loving. It is about forgoing perfection and instead choosing life.
"What do you think of when you consider doing laundry, washing dishes, and cleaning the dreaded bathroom? Are you discouraged? Do you feel overwhelmed? I have to say I feel that way ... often. In all my live-long days I haven't seen my home as a ministry. Can I serve Jesus and others as I clean my home? Sarah Mae proves I can. As a wife, mom, mother-in-law and mentor to teenage moms I'm going to cherish this book and share what I learned. Cleaning is more than just fighting germs. It can be a ministry of the heart!"
-Tricia Goyer, author of 25 books, include Blue Like Play Dough: The Shaping of Motherhood in the Grip of God
