Making Your Home A Haven: Fall Challenge

Okay, hopefully I am doing this right.  Almost two years into this blogging thing and I have still not figured everything out.  Courtney over at Women Living Well  has set out a Fall Challenge.  Each week there is something new to do to make your home a haven.  You can check out the list and instructions to join the challenge over at Courtney's site, but I'll give a short explanation here.

Week 1 is a candle lit everyday and a prayer for peace in your home every time you look at the candle.  Week 2 adds soft music and remembering to use peaceful words and have peaceful relationships.
Week 3 adds cleaning up clutter and thinking about what clutters up your spiritual life.
Week 4 adds tender moments with your family, ah, cuddles!
Week 5 (final week)  adds pleasant aromas from the kitchen.

The Bible verse for the challenge is John 14:27 "Peace I leave with you, my peace I give you.  I do not give to you as the world gives.  Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid."


  1. I am also trying to figure out blogging and hoping to spend more time with it soon. Good luck with the challenge, I started her summer challenge but didn't finish. Hoping I can accomplish this one since it is simple and short :)

  2. Visiting from the challenge. You have a great blog, love the feel. The true basics! Following.

  3. Thank you for sharing this... I love the idea!
