"Encourage one another daily." Hebrews 3:13

Very encouraging and challenging! It is so easy to forget that being a keeper of the home means that we watch over it and keep it for God's glory. This is so much more than scrubbing bathrooms - it is exactly what you shared: watching over the hearts and spirits of those in our care to nurture and encourage and bless.

Thank you so much for this lovely message.
