As homemakers, being self-disciplined is the key difference between feeling overwhelmed all the time and managing your home well. I’m so excited to share The Disciplined Homemaker with you. I’m here to help you learn to be more self-disciplined at home. I can’t wait to get started!
Last week we talked about a few ways you could get started being more self disciplined at home. First, I talked about my favorite tip for starting the day off right and that was to make sure you went to bed with a clean sink.
Did you try it? What did you think?
My second tip was to make your bed. Because if we are faithful in the little things, God will give us even bigger things to take care of. It’s all those little things we do every day that add up to a disciplined life.
And then I talked about 3 ways to create better habits if you are currently struggling with self discipline.

Here’s the thing. Every moment of every day is made up of small choices. How will you spend you time?
Have you ever wondered why some women get a lot done each day while others seem to just barely get by? We all have the same 24 hours in a day. So what sets apart the woman who has a neat home from the woman who looks around and feels overwhelmed by homemaking?
The Disciplined Homemaker: 30 Day Challenge
What if you could wake up in the morning and walk into a neat kitchen, start breakfast and go about your day with a plan… and still have time to focus on those things that really matter to you? Things like sitting down to read a book to your kids or going out to lunch with a friend? What if you didn’t have to feel overwhelmed by housework?
What if you could discover what it really means to be self-disciplined and use that discipline to build a better life for yourself and your family?
Proverbs 14:1 says, “The wise woman builds her house, but with her own hands the foolish one tears hers down.”
Are you ready to build your house?
The Disciplined Homemaker has been on my heart for several weeks now and I’m so excited to see how God is going to use this to change lives! So many of you have written to me over the past year telling me about your struggle to maintain self-discipline at home. Others have talked about they will start out good but lose steam when their motivation runs out.
Having self discipline basically means that you do what you know needs to be done even when you don’t feel like it. You may be disciplined in some areas of your life and need some improvement in others. The good news is that it is possible to cultivate a heart of discipline.
For the Spirit of God… gives us self discipline. 2 Timothy 1:7
Establishing good habits is the key to overcoming messiness. And good habits begin with self-discipline.
Unfortunately, for many of us, instead of being disciplined we find ourselves procrastinating instead of doing chores – or we don’t manage our time efficiently.
But, the Spirit of God will give us self-discipline if we just ask! Isn’t that good news? Of course, you have to be willing to do the work of changing. But the Bible also tells us that all things are possible with God!
It takes work. But you can do it!
