Book Review: 31 Days to Clean

I finally picked up (figuratively speaking, since it is an ebook after all) Sarah Mae's huge hit 31 Days to Clean: Having a Martha House the Mary Way. You can't spend much time surfing around the Christian Women blogging community without bumping into its enticing pink and green cover :).

A quick and easy read, I decided to forgo the cleaning challenges each day because Fly Lady's cleaning challenges are keeping me busy enough! Sarah Mae addresses the heart behind keeping a clean home. She encourages you to find and then own your purposes for having a clean domain, and then provides motivating fuel to keep you going in the right direction.

Every housewife faces the drudgery of the mundane- no matter how many loads of dishes or laundry we do, there will always be more. Until we die. No wonder we can get discouraged and burnt out! Sarah Mae points us to sin and the curse as the culprit, but gives us hope in the eternal value of our work as we bless our husbands and children.

This took me only a couple of days to breeze through, but it was encouraging, uplifting, and a good kick in the pants :). I highly recommend. And if you have a Kindle, I'd love to loan you my copy ;). Just let me know.

May God give us grace to endure in the blessed work of maintaining comfortable and inviting homes for the eternal souls that dwell there!
