I’m excited to tell you about a great book from my fellow blogger Renee Metzler that will rock your world. :)
As skeptical as I was to read a book like this given my ineptitude in home management, I was shocked that Renee had me at the intro! Just a few pages into the book, she addresses the question, “Who is this book for?” (answer: everyone!) with this challenge to moms,
“As parents, we need to model successful living skills. Life skills are learned in the home… Children are not an excuse to live in chaos, but rather they are the reason to model excellence.”
Yup. Convicted. Ouch.
But don’t worry – this book is not an unwieldy list of commandments for the stay at home mom! On the contrary, Total Home Makeover: Renew Your Space & Spirit is so encouraging, and accessible enough even for someone as domestically challenged as me!
Here’s a synopsis straight from the source:
“Transform your home with daily and weekly routines, family training, and room-by-room organization. Renee Metzler gave up a full-time career to become a full-time mom and home manager ten years ago. But she quickly realized she had never learned the skills necessary to do this job well.
This book is a quick-start manual that will help any home manager do their job with excellence, taking your life from chaos to order. Each day includes prayer, a ten-minute coaching session from Renee and daily to-do list to help you turn your home into a haven.”
I am so impressed with the simple layout and overall usefulness of this book that I am looking forward to sharing it with all of you in two ways:
