Sanctuary: Creating a Blessed Place to Live and Love.
In an era where the purchase of a house is more often an investment deal than just the acquisition of a haven to relax and entertain in, Bailey does an excellent job of helping us recognize the difference between a house and a home. In this book, the author helps readers organize their houses, apartments or rooms into comfortable and joyful places to live. Bailey uses powerful biblical text and testimonies to drive home her message, making this handbook more memorable. Additionally, each chapter concludes with useful "Home Work" to reinforce the lessons just offered.
Some of the 14 principles may be obvious, such as God should be sought for wisdom and guidance. Other principles are more thought-provoking, such as dealing with past home experiences and determining how they influence present-day home decisions. Focusing on the principles outlined in Sanctuary is sure to aid the reader who wants to upgrade her house to home status while improving her inner self, as well.
