From the very beginning, God made it clear: Home is holy ground. Your home is holy ground. And it's your privilege and your responsibility, even amid the messes and confusion of daily life, not only to take off your shoes, but to tend to the holy flame. As a human being in whom God's spirit dwells, you have that privilege. As a woman and as a mother, you have a special set of gifts and responsibilities. You are called to create and maintain a home environment and atmosphere that reflects God's love, God's hope, God's peace-quite literally to build your home on holy ground.
