This October, beginning on the 1st, I’ll be following the FlyLady’s 31 Babysteps. I first followed the YouTube version in July. This did wonders for me, since I’m a visual learner. I improved so smoothly, and the habits set me up for a peaceful home. With the routines in place, I was able to grapple hosting a family gathering of thirty people for the first time last August. I already need a refresher course, so I invite anyone to follow along with me as I watch one of FlyLady Diane’s videos each day.

If you’ve wondered why Scripture is so repetitive, here is why.
These are the ranching men who shape our family: my husband, his brother, their father, and our grandfathers. Some we keep in memory. All we are thankful to have as fathers.
