I’m a terrible housekeeper, I admit to it! It’s never been a strength of mine, and when I became a Christian, I really began to feel as though God wouldn’t be pleased with me if I didn’t start doing better with keeping my house clean. I got angry at first, and I understand from my husband that anger occurs a lot in new Christians, mainly because we’re just getting to know what’s expected of us and it isn’t always fun.

I’m committing tonight to shine my sink. I don’t want to do it. I really don’t have the motivation to do it. But I have issues in the self-confidence and housekeeping department, and I want to get that taken care of. What kind of mother can I be to my daughter if I can’t so much as shine a kitchen sink? What’s she going to learn from me over the years if the house is always a wreck and her friends can’t come over to play?

This is a big thing for me, and a bit step, too. Wish me luck, everybody. I’m going to need it!
