Read in August, 2008

I have a sick obsession with reading books about how to manage a home. That said, I have really enjoyed this book because the premise is solid. The author doesn't avocate principles of order and cleanliness so that the neighbors will think you're great or to assert her domestic divinity (MS). She has some really sound advice that points toward creating an environment that makes your house a home where people feel they have a place. As always, I applaud women who give dignity and purpose to what most consider maid's work -- but here that the emotional needs of home are actually being explored. I love it and would recommend it to anyone with similar wierd taste in non-fiction.

Nikki Randalynn, I can't tell you how excited I am about your review. This sounds like something that will really help me. I'm so intrigued by the idea of keeping your house clean to make a place for everyone. It sounds more Gospel inclined than what I usually hear about obsessing with keeping a clean/organized house and nothing else takes priority over that. I hope you have more of these types of books listed; I'm going to check it out. Thanks!
