In an excellent book by author and Christian speaker and blogger Shannon Upton, Building Your House: A Faithful Mom's Guide to Organizing Home and Family, is a wonderful new entry in the area of books that focus on helping Christian moms. The book focuses not just on cleaning out the physical clutter in one's home, but also on the emotional, psychological and spiritual issues that can affect a person while they are living with physical clutter. The author uses easy to follow, step-by-step guides that will be exceedingly useful to readers as they go forth on the journey to, as the author says, "Build your house with Jesus as the perfect cornerstone."
I very much enjoyed Building Your House: A Faithful Mom's Guide to Organizing Home and Family. While containing a useful and important message, and a strong message especially directed to mothers trying to live their lives following Christian principles, it's not dry or stuffy at all. In fact, author Shannon Upton has done a great job in writing a book that is fun and funny and will easily engage her readers from the very beginning. Readers, and especially Christian moms, who sometimes feel a bit overwhelmed and need a little help or inspiration on where to start with organizing both their homes and their lives should absolutely get this book. I highly recommend Building Your House: A Faithful Mom's Guide to Organizing Home and Family. I will be looking out for more from author Shannon Upton in the future, and I certainly hope that she is already hard at work on a new book right now!
