From adverts to blogs, scenes of domestic bliss are everywhere, painting a picture of perfection and expectation nearly impossible to live up to. For many women, housework has become more than chores that need to be done; it is a symbol of identity. Sheila Wray Gregoire wants to stop that thinking in its tracks and help women back to a life of balance-for their sakes and for their families. She encourages women to shift their focus from housekeeping to relationships and shows them how to foster responsibility and respect in all family members. The second edition retains the helpful, concrete advice on everyday situations such as strategies for tackling chores and budgets and tips on effective communication, while incorporating the wisdom Sheila has gained through her interaction with thousands of readers of her blog and through her speaking ministry over the past ten years.
Sheila Wray Gregoire writes for numerous magazines, actively blogs at tolovehonorandvaccum.com, and speaks to a variety of audiences across North America, combining the realities of a family with Scripture for real-world, real-biblical answers.
