This is Sandra Carrington-Smith's first book to my knowledge. It is a little jewel.

The way you view your home and your soul has the opportunity to be totally renovated if you follow Carrington-Smith's sage advice.

The first time I held "Housekeeping for the Soul" in my hands, I knew that it was special. The title immediately captured my attention. The exquisite cover completely drew me in.

The author, Sandra-Carrington Smith is a colleague of mine. That said, I think she has written a very helpful book! The metaphor of housecleaning one’s soul as one does one’s house is an apt one, with the familiar dread at the start of the project, and the growing excitement at having made significant progress, while knowing that the process is never really complete. The comparison of closets, which are accessible, to our conscious mind, and attics, which are less so, to our subconscious mind, c...more
Housekeeping For the Soul is an amazing book. I took a long time reading it as I wanted it to really "soak in" and get the most from it. It makes you really take a long look at yourself and all of your past and present experiences. I am one of the fortunate ones that has had a blessed life without many negative experiences. However, I do have alot of clutter in my mind and soul. This book helped me to sort it all out and realize how truly blessed my life has been. I believe this book by Sandra i...more

This is the first book to combine how-to, self-help and spiritual genres, to address the needs of millions of readers, as they strive to detach from the Culture of Chaos and embrace a life of balance. It is through this inner harmony and balance that one may then create a meaningful, authentic reality. With a down-to-earth approach, the reader is guided through the process of emotional healing and renewal of spirit through the familiar analogy of housekeeping: cleaning, organizing, and 'airing o...more
