Creating Purpose in Your Home: A 31 Day Challenge

1st dear readers, I owe you an apology.  I knew that last week was going to be crazy, so I wrote some posts ahead and thought I had scheduled them.  However, I just discovered last night that I had left them all as drafts!  I am so sorry to leave you hanging.  I will have to share those posts with you at a later time, because this month I am going to be joining the Nester in writing for the whole month of October about one particular topic.  It sounds like a fun challenge and I am excited to share my heart with you on something I am passionate about for the next 31 days.  I will be blogging about creating purpose in your home.  I'm so excited! This is going to be a huge stretch for me to blog EVERY day, so I would love some encouragement and support (*cough* comments *cough*) from you all.  Here is preview of a few of the things we will be discussing this month.

Purpose for our homes, what is it and why does it matter
Creating a plan for purpose
My personal purpose
ways to create purpose in your life; personal, family and home
cultivating a passion
Stuff (seriously, I'm planning a post entitled stuff)

For now I will leave you with a question.  Does your home and life have a purpose?  If so, what and how does it happen in every day life?
