Chores: Many Hands Make Light the Work Review and Giveaway


If there is one thing I am always reading up on and studying to improve, it is how our family does chores.  I had chores growing up, but never learned how to run a household nor how to get my children to help me out.  Thankfully Chores: Many Hands Make Light the Work, teaches both, and much, much more.

Now, I haven't been feeling well lately and have a lot on my plate, but thankfully this amazing bundle comes with both ebooks and audios to listen to.  The audios allowed me to listen while I was resting or doing some other necessary tasks.  The ebooks include

  • Neat and Tidy Tried and True Organization Tips which is just that
  • Turn Housework Into Fun and Games! which teaches the importance of demonstrating servanthood and gets very specific in training your children to do chores with a servant's heart
The audios are
  • God Blesses This House, But He Doesn't Clean It
  • God Blesses This House, But He Doesn't Organize It
  • 12 Super Simple Time-Saving Tips
  • Cheerful Children and Challenging Chores
There is also an ebooklet called Keep It Clean and Toxin Free which has several wonderful recipes to make your own non-toxic cleaners.

It is so important with a growing family to be able to have your children help you with the chores.  It is important so you can get done what you need to (and still sleep!), and it is also important for them to learn how to successfully do chores for when they have homes of their own.

One of my favorite tips from Mrs. Lorrie Flem of Eternal Encouragement (though there were many), was to give each child a section of the house to be responsible for when cleaning and tidying up.  This could be a bathroom and the livingroom, the kitchen and a bedroom, etc, according to age ability.  She also points out that children do much better with cleaning tasks when you give them very specific instructions written down!  I plan on implementing these ideas soon in our own home.

Doesn't this bundle sound exciting?  Believe me, it is, and you won't want to miss it!  Even if you don't have children, you can benefit from the amazing cleaning and organization instruction in this bundle.  And you can even win one for yourself!  To enter, just go fill out this form, but make sure you say that you read about it here on Blessed Homemaking.

I always assigned my kids a room. We'd switch it up every week. They did well knowing what room they were responsible for during the week.
