It’s been said that “the woman sets the tone for the home.” Yet all too often, we Moms find our homes full of busyness, strife, and even anger. It can be difficult to sustain a joyful and peaceful home atmosphere that is conducive to maintaining close family ties, discipling our children in the ways of the Lord, and even successfully homeschooling.

Cindy Carrier shares some of the secrets to maintaining a home atmosphere that glorifies God. This goes beyond the practical; it isn’t “five steps,” “four P’s,” or some fancy acronym to help you  remember what to do. Instead, you’ll get right to the heart of the issues that hinder you from experiencing God’s best in your home.

Chapter 1: Cleaning the House–You’ll find out how to “clean the house,” spiritually speaking, in order to allow the Holy Spirit to function more fully in and through you. This is key to maintaining a home atmosphere that God desires.

Chapter 2: Locking the Door–Destroy the strongholds of the enemy and “lock the door” to his work. Walk in the freedom given to you through Jesus Christ and see the effects on your home’s atmosphere!

Chapter 3: Spiritual Home Management–Learn how to stand firm in your spiritual freedom and walk in the power of the Holy Spirit to live a life marked by the fruit of the Spirit. This will revolutionize your home life.

Chapter 4: Practical Suggestions–Finally, now that you’ve addressed your “being,” you can take a look at the practical “doings” of creating and maintaining a more joyful home atmosphere. We’ll look at things like attitudes, expectations, “triggers,” communication, and more.

See what others are saying about Home Sweet Home:

“… I ordered this product right away. Cindy gets to the heart of the matter and just lays the truth out, and you just don’t find this honest, un-sugar coated truthfulness out there. People are afraid to talk about their struggles because they think they are the only one, but Cindy tells you like I think most of us struggle with in our everyday life”  (Jenny S.)

“You hit a sore spot with me, or rather one that that God was preparing me to hear. Your discussion about excuses for yelling really made me think about my childhood and all my “excuses” I’ve used. I long to put what was discussed into practice…” (Amy)

“I was one of those who was waiting for the practical things “to do” but was blessed by the first three [sections] as these were things I had been taught before in our church. I just had never thought to apply those principles to the home atmosphere. The practical things were also a good reminder of some things I knew and other things I had not thought of before. I really liked the idea of reboot. And some of the analogies shared ministered to me as well. … I think the things you shared are crucial to changing the atmosphere in our homes.” (Debbie)

For homeschooling Moms in particular, maintaining a God-honoring home atmosphere (one that fosters our goals of not only academic learning but discipleship of our children) is crucial. Check out Home Sweet Home today!

Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
