Format: Paperback
This is an easy to read book that provides lots of excellent ideas and tips on how to get your family involved in all of the day-to-day tasks there are that require attention to make a house a home. After reading To Love, Honor and Vacuum, I tried out a number of the author's suggestions for motivating kids (I have 3) to pitch in and help. Not only did her ideas work, but I felt less stressed, and the whole family seemed happier! Lots of Scriptural support and interesting anecdotes kept me reading and helped me to realize being a slave to your family is not only not fun, it's not necessary! Highly recommended.

In "...to love, honor, and vacuum," Sheila Wray Gregoire shares with women a direct, no-nonsense approach to managing their homes. The strength of the book lies where Gregoire places the responsibility - with women's sinful thought patterns. After documenting historical precedent and identifying modern myths, Gregoire challenges women to examine past choices, identify root fears, choose God's truth and implement pragmatic changes. In so doing, she provides women with a Biblical methodology to exchange worldly inefficiency for purposeful living.

I admit I rarely read books that are targeted at married mothers. I'm not married and I'm not a mother. Go figure. But since I moved in with my parents and two younger brothers a few months ago (got laid off, minimizing expenses while looking for a job, you know the drill), my healthy, if distant, appreciation for home engineers has developed into downright deification. As an adult member of the household, I'm frequently overwhelmed by how much needs to be done on a daily basis.
Perhaps that's why TO LOVE, HONOR, AND VACUUM strikes me as one of the best books I've read in a long time. Written by home schooling mom and entrepreneur Shelia Wray Gregoire, the book is chock full of practical tips for doing everything around the home from cleaning to keeping spending in check to stoking the romantic fires. A lot of her suggestions aren't necessarily rocket science, but she presents them in a fresh way and gives the business of running a family a new spin.
One feature of the book that I found especially insightful is a section profiling one day in the life of three women living at three different points in American history. These short fictional accounts reveal that while women over the years share many of the same concerns about the welfare of their families, the tangible nuts and bolts of running a household have evolved significantly. This will be an epiphany for the many modern women harboring guilt-inducing notions that the housewives of earlier generations were better at running their households despite the absence of the time and effort saving conveniences that clutter homes today. On the contrary, Gregoire convincingly points out that these technological advances have actually added more lines on today's to-do lists.

I liked the humour and the practical tips to get out of the "overworked maid" situation. The book touches on different facets of family and/or married life, instead of just dealing with one or two things in isolation.

Sheila Wray Gregorie has done a great job with her book. She doesn't talk down to moms as an expert--she comes alongside as a fellow struggler and gives scripturally-based, insightful commentary about the role a Christian mom and wife should play in the family. I was challenged, motivated, and encouraged by her practical ideas, her warm tone, and the real-life anecdotes she shared. As a working mom, I didn't feel that Sheila "bashed" me, but she gave helpful ideas for cutting back on time away from home and making family dinners, etc., a priority. All in all, it was a delightful read. I can't wait for her next book--it's about sex, and that chapter in "To Love, Honor, and Vacuum" was my favorite! :)
