Make your home a haven

In keeping with my autumnal theme this week, Courtney over at Women Living Well, has a lovely Fall Challenge, all about making your home a haven. 

The challenges are not in the least bit challenging but so well thought out.

Last week's was to light a cosy big candle somewhere in your home, living room or kitchen are the best suggestions, and then every time you see this candle to pray for peace in your home.

So simple, and yet so worthwhile.

This week's challenge is:

Play soft music everyday in your home. Choose music that the family enjoys.
Then, focus on using peaceful words and maintaining peaceful relationships. Role model gentleness with your words this week and while you’re add it have a little fun.  Since the music is going,  grab your husband or children and dance! 

Proverbs 15:1 says “A gentle answer turns away wrath but a harsh word stirs up anger.”

Head on over to Women Living Well if you want to see the full challenge for this week.


  1. Sounds like a wonderful challenge. Something to make our houses cozier and yet focus on what really makes a cozy home!

  2. What lovely ideas...I'm going to go and check it out. Love that its also about using a visual reminder to do something positive i.e. pray for peace and harmony.

    Thanks for sharing xx
