I am so honored to be a new contributor on the awesome site Raising Homemakers, a site I have been enjoying since it first began several years ago. Here is my first article for them. 🙂
We are now nearing the end of spring for a lot of folks, which means many homemakers have been busy the past couple months with spring cleaning of all sorts – washing windows and scrubbing baseboards, organizing piles of belongings and sorting what to keep and what not to keep, and perhaps even going so far as to completely revamp and change their current decorating motif. All of this is definitely important work (and things I need to tend to a bit more myself!), but what is perhaps most important and more often overlooked than the practice of spring cleaning our homes is the concept of spring cleaning our souls.
You see, decorating, cleaning, and organizing our homes are all well, fine, and good endeavors. But if we are not about the work of tending to our souls first and foremost, then it will not matter how beautiful or spotless or how well put together our homes may be – we will still be easily guilty of tearing them down with our own hands.
