What to Expect in Cultivating a Healing Home
Cultivating a healing home is a devotional for moms who are in the midst of the 'little' time. Your home is filled with laundry, potty training kids, messes, spit-up, and crying kids. Yet at the same time, your home is filled with laughter, joy, amazement, and gratitude.
Those times from infant until around 5 years old is a unique time for a mother and often stress and worry settle in to clench at our hopes and dreams.
This 21-day devotional is for you mama. It is a devotional for moms that look at how to combat the worry and stress through the scope of creating and cultivating your healing home.
Three Weeks of Healing
In the first week, we are going to tackle what a healing home looks like. Where does it start? Who builds a healing home? What does surrender have to do with it? What does gratitude have to do with our homes? And what happens when the fears of motherhood strike and your healing home seems distant?
In the second week, we are diving into when anxiety strikes our motherhood. We all have fears. Anxiety is a staple among young mothers. Yet the healing power of the Gospel of Jesus Christ can transform our fear, worry, and anxiety as we lay our worries at the foot of the cross.
The third week is when everything is laid out in the open and we fully explore the expectations of being a woman of surrender. What does it mean to be a godly woman of surrender? It's time to let Jesus be the ultimate builder of our homes as we surrender our entire family, home, and life to him.

This 3 week devotional is like having a conversation with a wise friend. I 'accidentally on purpose' read the whole thing in 3 sittings. I couldn't put it down.
The encouragement and understanding of someone who's had bad days and knows what would help is great. Life is overwhelming, if we let it be. Rachel has a way of sympathizing with and then refocusing the reader where our help comes from. The perspective shift is helpful.
A verse and a minute or two of short powerful devotions makes it fit into any schedule and lightening the load.
A few minor typos show that the author, a busy mom like us, worked hard to make something need so much, something we can relate to.
