The basic premise of this book is to put our hearts into our house cleaning.
However that doesn't mean making a clean home something we worship but that we understand why we clean our homes.
Sarah Mae writes with a gentle friendly conversational tone in which she leads us to the Bible for the reasons that we need to present a clean home to others.
Make no mistake about it,the author knows the people inside the house are more important than the house itself.
She just shows us ways to aid the former with the latter.
There are no strict guidelines to follow- this is your routine you are working out, not mine, and not Sarah's.
Flexibility and Jesus are the keys.
Sarah guides us through both of these aspects.
For me living in a one room off grid cabin means my cleaning schedule looks different then most. So I decided to focus on the biblical part of this book instead of the cleaning part. The part that gives us the why to what we as homemakers (or lifegivers as Sarah calls us) do.
Another example of something I really liked was that Sarah talks about anchors instead of schedules so I will share my super simple anchors with you
1-wake up, read bible with kids, feed farm animals and then breakfast.
2-lunch and reading
3- prepare supper, feed farm animals, get dishes out.
4- brush teeth and wash up for bed.
I think this book will appeal to different women for different reasons. For some the practical cleaning advice will jump out at them and for some the spiritual words will be stronger. And I think both will stand out for all of us at different times in our lives.
All in all ...I loved this book and strongly recommend it to every woman out there!
I was provided this book free of charge in exchange for my honest opinion by Tyndale.
