Recommends it for: christian wives who might follow a suggestion of having a wall guests can sign
i managed to score a free copy of this book shortly after i moved into my first place of my own. around this time, hgtv.com, apartmenttherapy.com and kaboodle.com replaced email, this website and the other usual social networking sites as the online distractions of choice. judging from the cozy yet immaculate scene on the cover, i expected this book to complement the other reading on decorating and feng shui.

what i should have done was read the reviews the back cover - from the authors of holy h

The book is simple in message: home is important, here is how you can make it your own personal escape and space. The chapters are divided up by categories, things like how make your home welcoming, food, color patterns, and having company.

Favorite quote: "I told him that if a man is born in a dry place, then although he may dream of rain, he does not want too much, and that he will not mind the sun that beats down and down. So I never went with him to Zululand and I never saw the sea, ever: But

My most favorite MOPS book from years 2006-2014. Maybe it's because I was in such a nesting mode as a new mother of two babies. I had identified myself already as a mom, but loved how my home was considered my "workspace".

I like reading these short little "feel good self-help" type books my aunt gave me that she got for free somewhere.. it is like I can pick it up and read it quick and my perspective is brightened in the process..
I liked most of what she said.. but I only gave it four stars because it got repetitive and I didn't want to hear anymore about her settling into her cozy chair and drinking a nice cool glass of ice tea anymore.
I am glad I read it though and I am going to donate it to the library now.

This book wasn't profound, but it was easy and relaxing to read before bed. It uses other people's examples of what they do to organize their homes and schedules, etc. so that they're prioritizing family, friends and neighbors. It shows you ways you can slow down so that everyone in your family can feel peaceful and loved at home, and so that guests of your house feel the same way.

A cozy little read on how to make your house a home, and what "home" means to you. Good for gals beginning to build their "home", or who have to move all the time (like me!).

Our MOPs book. It makes me feel normal to know that all mommies and families go thru similar crazy times. This book proves that it is ok!

I loved this book! I've been reading it over the last 18 months in short spurts. I'm sad for it to be over. Every time it refocused me on what matters most.... my family.
