Every mom’s spirit gets cluttered with chores sometimes.
We love taking care of our families, but we can hit our limit. We face yet another lunch to pack, or bed to make, or pet to feed, and something inside us rebels—can’t someone else do this, just this once? After all, part of our mommy job is to teach our kids to take care of themselves and their belongings, right? Absolutely. And as Christian Moms, we want to challenge our kids to help us out before our spirits get cluttered and overwhelmed!
One summer, I challenged my “big” kids (then 5 and 9 years old) to learn some new life skills by presenting them with Chore Passports. I explained the process to the kids and they were raring to go. Suddenly, they were excited it was Laundry Day—they couldn’t wait to put away their clothes and fold the towels!
