"Common Ground": my little corner of the blogosphere where I talk (a lot-wink) about the things that matter most to me: My relationship with my Lord & Savior, Jesus Christ, homeschooling, adoption, homemaking, parenting, "spousing." (yeah, yeah....I know that's not a word.....I made it up-it’s my blog-I can do things like that! Ha!)

Since my life isn’t all that different from yours, hopefully we can find some COMMON GROUND & learn from each other. Please share your thoughts!

Through the Lords’s mercies we are not consumed, Because His compassions fail not.

They are new every morning; Great is Your faithfulness!
Lam. 3: 22 & 23

"Help For the Home" Harvest of Ideas

If you have read my blog in the last few months,
you will know I have been slowly working my way through my house using this book:

If you ever have felt a bit overwhelmed in your own home,
RUN, don't walk to your nearest bookstore & get yourself this book!
Today, my tip comes from her book,
& it is the BIGGEST thing I have taken away it:
When de-cluttering, she says to ask yourself the following question:
"Is that article worth the amount of time I spend on it?"
If it's not, get rid of it.
Every item in your home takes with it a portion of your time-
from the smallest paperclip to the largest peice of furniture.
As you de-clutter & decide what needs to GO,
ask yourself this question, & see if the decisions are easier.
Now, leave me a comment with YOUR tip(s),
& I will link your blog!
