Step 12: Home Management Journal

Step 12 says:

Today we are going to pick a day or days that we are going to bless our homes with our Weekly Home Blessing Hour.

I do mine on Monday morning. Then there are our payroll SHEs that may not have a full hour to devote to this. So I teach them to do one or two items of our weekly home blessing a day. You can do one before you go to work and one after you get home. Then after three days your home has been blessed and you have only done ten minutes in the morning and ten minutes in the evening. With these things penciled on your Basic Weekly Plan you have a specific time to do them.

So now is the hard part. You have to pick a day to Bless your home! So pull out your Control Journal and write in Weekly Home Blessing Hour and these seven items. You can pick the order.

  • Vacuum or sweep just the middles not around the walls.
  • Dust
  • Mop the kitchen and the bathroom
  • Clean the glass in the doors and bathroom mirrors.
  • Purge magazines. This means get rid of them from your house.
  • Empty all the trash cans
  • Change the sheets on your bed. (each family member is responsible for their bed)

My take on it:

I do mine on Wednesdays (thoroughly) and on Sundays (basic to get ready for the week), though some people do theirs only once a week. With so many kids in the house along with the dog, I have to do extra cleaning. The girls all help out and have their chore list (more on this in another post), but the main cleaning is up to me.

Have a great day!
