Give me 31 days and I’ll help you not only have 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 reading, you will be given two challenges (based off of Mary and Martha in the bible):
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 accepting who you are and how you were made, while also helping you to rule, subdue, and create a place of peace in your home in order to love others well. It is about forgoing perfection and instead choosing imperfect, glorious 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!”
