Episode summary
What does it mean to be a homemaker who glorifies God within her home? What tasks and things should we be focused on, and what can we lay aside for the sake of our family? That's what we are going to dive into in this episode.
This quote has become my guiding post in creating an atmosphere in my home: “The wife and mother who views life as a “cross to bear” influences the others in the home to think the same way. She easily robs everyone else of joy and like the yeast in the bread she bakes, her ungodly attitudes spread to everyone else.” ~ Martha Peace, The Excellent Wife {Page 77}
Throughout this episode we will spend some time looking at why we should care as homemakers, wives, and mothers about the atmosphere in our home. Then we will briefly talk about some easy ways to set an UN-glorifying atmosphere within our home. And finally we will discuss 5 steps you can begin taking today to glorify God within your home by the tone and atmosphere that you set.

Book of the Week:
Treasuring Christ When Your Hands are Full - Gloria Furman
This is one of my all time favorite books! If you are looking for some Gospel-Centered encouragement on the sometimes messy task of being a mother, then I highly recommend you go pick up this book TODAY!
I love this quote from the book: “The Christian mother’s hands are full with every spiritual blessing in Christ (Eph. 1:3) and her work in nurturing children in the fear of the Lord is her privileged participation in God’s work in uniting all things in Jesus (Eph. 1:10). This Jesus, whom we gladly serve, offers rest to mothers and fills our hands with his blessings. Day and night, moment by moment, we must choose to rest in Jesus. That’s what it means to treasure Christ when your hands are full, whether you have one child or a dozen.” – Treasuring Christ, page 17
