Of all the questions I receive, the topic of chores is on the top of the list!  Moms and kids are frustrated and somewhat confused when it comes to this issue.  Today I’m going to tackle it from top to bottom!  I’ll answer questions like, “Are chores THAT important?”, “Do we pay allowance?”, “How do we deal with ‘mom guilt’ ” and more!

Having 8 kids in 12 years can bring a mom to her knees and her home into disarray, but God taught our kids (and me) more than I could have imagined through working together.

The benefits of having our kids do chores are countless and I’ll talk about many of them in this podcast as well as how we scheduled them.  More than anything, I want you to be encouraged that investing in this area not only lightens our loads as moms, but is an essential part of our kids’ education and preparation for REAL life!
