Fal Challenge: Making Your Home a Haven

{ squeal, squeal!!!!} I have some exciting news!!!!

I am so excited to announce the 3rd annual “Making Your Home a Haven” fall challenge brought to you by Courtney Joesph from Women Living Well I’ve done this every year for the past two years with her and have been so blessed by it everytime. The kickoff is this coming Monday, Nov 5th and runs through the whole month…..i am so excited and was hoping she was doing it this year!!! So yay…praise God she is!!!

Would you like to join me, leave me a comment and we can do it together! GMG girls are you in? 😉

Here’s what the topic schedule looks like…every week she will add more to it so keep an eye out for blog posts. It’s perfect timing since we have one week left for fall session of GMG. 😦 but this totally makes up for it.

November 5th -Go buy an extra large candle and light a candle everyday in your home. I will be starting mine in the morning! But you can start yours at dinner time. Do what makes sense for your family. I will be placing mine in the kitchen – the main hub of my home. Each time the candle catches your eye, say a prayer for peace in your home.
November 12th – Play soft music everyday in your home. Choose worship, classical or another form of peaceful music that the family enjoys. I’ll be playing Christmas music!  Focus on using peaceful words and maintaining peaceful relationships. Work on gentleness this week.
November 19th – Focus on the kitchen, the heart of the home. Cook things with pleasant aromas – like homemade bread, pies, and cookies.  Don’t wait to have a reason to make something special – do it simply to show love to your family. Invite your kids and/or hubby to cook along side of you – make memories in the kitchen – test tasting, being creative, laughing and loving. Remove discontentment and give thanks to God for the home God has given you in which to create a haven for your family.
November 26th – Decorate! The holidays are upon us.  Ann Voskamp says “Creating is good theology.  In the beginning God created.”  Be creative as you make your home warm, cozy and inviting for the holidays.  Think about ways you can keep Christ in Christmas even in the way you decorate.
So excited!!! Come back to her site on Monday for more info…this is perfect timing because our GMG group has one week left. 😦 but this makes up for it. This definitely helps get me into the spirit for seasons coming up.
