Chapter 15:A Heart that creates order from Chaos

In your copy of A Woman After God's Own Heart, read chapter 14, "A Heart that Creates Order from Chaos." What meant the most to you from this chapter or offered you the greatest challenge or inspired you deeply?
It challenged me to do more in my home and to have better time management. Because if you have great time management that equals a happy family:)
More time to enjoy life!!!!!

Responsibility and Accountability - - Read 1 Timothy 5:13-14. As the apostle, Paul observed the behavior of the young widows of his day, what distressing habits did he list in verse 13?
Being idle,gossiping and busybodies.

Whad did he say was "better" for these women (verse 14)?
To love their husbands and children,to be self-controlled and pure,to be busy at home and to be kind,to be subject to their husbands,so that no one will malign the word of God.

Yes, But How? -- First, understand that home management is God's best for us -- God's desire that we build and watch over and manage a home is obviously not only "better" for us, but also "best". (We can thus be sure that those who dwell under our roof will enjoy the beauty of order versus the confusion of chaos!) What does Titus 2:3-5 have to say on this subject?
The older woman should teach the younger women how to behave.

Second, decide to take home management seriously -- Knowing what God desires for you and your home -- that you are on assignment from God to manage your home -- what decisions can you make to take the management of your home more seriously?Make a list and stick to it no matter what. It feels great when you do everything on the list:)

Third, live as though you will be accountable for the condition of your home and the use of your time -- What is the atmosphere of your home like? What can you do to make your home a place of peace and rejuvenation?
I feel my home is peaceful and relaxing and I always try to make it feel that way when my hubby comes home from work.

TWELVE TIPS for Time Management -- Hopefully by now you've turned the level of your commitment to your home up a notch or two! Now let's look at some practical tips that will help us with our good-housekeeping chores. Write out one goal for next week in each of these areas. Then, at the end of your week, see how many you can check off accomplished.

I have written down this great tips for Time Management and I have made a goal to read them everyday.


I'm loving that my house is clean and that means I have a free day to do whatever I want...how sweet is that:)

I'm loving that the hubby is off Thursday,Friday,Saturday and Sunday and this makes this girl so HAPPY!!!!!!

I'm loving that we are having a graduation party for Miss Bailey this weekend. I'm so proud of my little girl.

I'm loving this Bible Study....
Every chapter has changed me in a awesome way!!!!!

And of course I'm loving my little family!!!!!!

Happy Wednesday!!!!!

What a precious picture...

We had to go to a wedding this past weekend...so we got all dressed up.
I absolutely love this picture!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

My weekend last weekend..

Does that make sense to ya'll???

We went fishing on the Alabama River folks and let me tell I'm not a fisherman or fisher woman...is that a word???

My son loves to fish,but my daughter isn't fond of getting in a boat...until today.

The beautiful Alabama River.

PJ waiting for the big one.

I think I like the fishing thing:)

Here fishy..fishy..

Ok it's not the big one..but it's a fish.

I caught a fish!!!!!!
Sorry it's sideways:(

We are one crazy bunch...lol

I had a blast even though I was the only one not to catch a fish....bummer.
But my kids had a blast and that's what matters to this mom:)

Chapter 13 A Heart That Makes a House a Home

Loved...Loved....Loved this chapter!!!!!!!!

The Business of Building -- To gain a better understanding of what it means to make a house a home, write out Proverbs 14:1 :: The wise woman builds her house,but with her own hands the foolishone tears hers down.
 Creating the atmosphere. As we start, take the temperature of your own home. Share a few words that describe typical daily life under your roof.
My school mornings are really hectic. I feel so rushed to get the kids ready for school and get out the door on time. The afternoon is usually homework time and trying to get dinner started.And by evening time we are relaxed and having family time.

Now look up these scriptures and check the ones that you most need to apply in order to build your home into all that you and God want it to be....
  • Proverbs 12:25 :: An anxious heart weighs a man down,but a kind word cheers him up.
  • Proverbs 15:1 :: A gentle answer turns away wrath,but a harsh word stirs up anger.
  • Proverbs 15:13 :: A happy heart makes the face cheerful,but heratache crushes the spirit.
  • Proverbs 15:15 :: All the days of the afflicted are evil, but he who is of a merry heart has a continual feast
  • Proverbs 15:18 :: A hot tempered man stirs up dissension,but a patient man calms a quarrel.
  • Proverbs 16:24 :: Pleasant words are honeycomb sweet to the soul and healing to the bones.
  • Proverbs 31:26 :: She speaks with wisdom and faithful instruction is on her tongue.
I will say all of them!!!! I'm writing these down and reading them everyday:)

Building a refuge. - - What specific steps can you take to make your home a shelter, a haven, a refuge, a retreat, a hospital for your loved ones, to build your home into what God wants it to be?
We need to have a plan for school mornings,so that it wont be so hectic and be less stresssful for the kids and me.

Avoiding the negatives. As we took apart Proverbs 14:1, we noted that there are (at least!) two ways a woman can put her home building at risk. Jot down what comes to your mind in each category ::
1.) Active (wording destruction) -- anger, attitude
2.) Passive (failing to work) -- lazy, puttings things off
Understand that wisdom builds
What do you think they key words of this definition are, and why?
I still love the Good...Better...Best!!! And I truly believe this.

Which area of this definition challenges you most? Or, put another way, do you need more knowledge, more skills, or more careful diligence to applicatoin? Share what you plan to do about any weak areas.
Make a plan and stick to it NO MATTER WHAT!!!!!!
 Decide to begin building. We also discussed making a commitment for doing the work involved in home-building. Look at these two scriptures and write out how they apply to creating an enchanted oasis called home.

Proverbs 31:13 :: She seeks wool and flax and works with eager hands.
Colossians 3:23 :: And whatever you do, work at it with all your heart as working for the Lord,not for men.
"Commit your works to the Lord and your thoughts (and plans) will be establised" (Proverbs 16:3). Why not write out a fresh commitment right now, commiting your works, thoughts, plans, and dreams about your home to the Lord and asking for His grace to enable you in your home-building endeavors?
1. set a plan for a happy morning routine:)
2. have a postive attitude,because it is contagoious and I want a happy family!!!!
 Each day do on thing to build your home - - Look around your home (or apartment or room or half a room), inside and out. Make a list of the things that need to be added, repaired, set up, etc...so that your area is more of a refuge. Then do just one item on your list each day -- or even on each week. If you haven't already made such a list, do so now. Put it in a special place where you can look at it often. (Remember our definition of wisdom? It's not merely a matter of information or knowledge, but of skillful and practical application of the truth to the ordinary facets of life -- like homemaking!)
I already made a list and it's a LONG one and I have already started on it.
A Heartfelt Prayer .....
Lord.just for today,help me make my house a home by having a positive attitude at all times and when I get frustrated...stop and pray.
