No More Perfect Moms 31 Day Challenge – Day 24 through 26

(I forgot to finish posting this challenge…oops…)

Day 24

“There are no perfect homemakers…just real moms, deciding what’s right for their family, and working to create a warm, nurturing home for those they love.” –Jill Savage, NO MORE PERFECT MOMS

 

Challenge: Take inventory of the traditions, meals, and activities that make your home warm and your family special. The next time you’re tempted to compare, stop and remember your list. Then give thanks for the ways God made your home and family unique.

We do not dare to classify or compare ourselves with some who commend themselves. When they measure themselves by themselves and compare themselves with themselves, they are not wise. 2 Corinthians 10:12

 

Day 25

“There are no perfect meals, but there are ways to streamline the meal-making process.” –Jill Savage

 

Challenge:  Do an inventory of your pantry.  See if you’re well stocked with throw-together ingredients that’ll save you on those days when things don’t go as planned.  Pasta, soup, tuna, and a brownie mix are real staples. A freezer with already browned ground beef, vegetables, chicken breasts, and a pizza or two is very helpful for busy families.

Better a dry crust with peace and quiet than a house full of feasting, with strife. Proverbs 17:1

 

Day 26

“Too often we talk ourselves right out of hospitality because we fear that our efforts won’t measure up.  Measure up to what?  That elusive “perfect picture” we have in our mind of what our house needs to look like, what kind of food we need to serve, or even how we want our kids to behave.”  –Jill Savage

 

Challenge:  Have you been considering hosting something at your home but have been putting it off? Take a few minutes and really plan it. When the day comes, keep it simple.  Cook something you’re comfortable with. Clean the main room that your guests will be in and the guest bathroom, and leave it at that. Then enjoy the moment with your guests.

Show hospitality to one another without grumbling. 1 Peter 4:9
