You may think a peaceful home must be clean, orderly and perfectly decorated like something out of a magazine, the kids don’t fight and your spouse is quietly cleaning in the background.

Wake up, honey! Real life is messy, and coming at you at lightning speed.

An atmosphere of peace helps us to rest and to hear God’s voice. But it takes active effort on our part to seek and remain in that state of contentment, that place of peace within the reality of real life.

It’s all about what you do with what you have!

There are tons of things you can do to create and maintain a peaceful atmosphere in your marriage and family, just by the words and actions you choose. Speak to one another with kindness, choose to lift each other up, protect your trust and serve one another.
