Melissa and I are blogging acquaintances. She and I started blogging in 2007 and I came across her blog early in my blog reading. She felt like a friend and still does. I still read her blog every day, though I don't always comment. We share a similar philosophy about our homes and how we think of them and use them. I especially love her thoughts on creating a haven.
Her book is full of encouragement, and reminds me of Emilie Barnes books from the early 1990s. Those helped me to love my home and to desire to make it a HOME for my family. Melissa's book will do this for many, many women.
The chapters are so helpful
There is even a 31 Day Challenge in the back of the book!
I don't know if I've ever mentioned it before but I start libraries for my kids. Books that have been meaningful to us as a family or a classic, or by a well loved author. I also have books that I am buying for my girls to help encourage them when they have their own homes.
This is one that I will be buying for my girls and for Kayleigh, as well. I know that it will serve them well, when they have their own homes.
I hope you pick up this book for yourself, as a gift for a friend, or as an encouragement for a young mom. You'll be so glad you did!
