Bootcamp for Lousy Housekeepers

Bootcamp for Lousy Housekeepers

Heidi Schaap

You’re buried under piles of unfolded laundry. You can’t set the table because all your dishes are dirty. You need to dust, but every countertop is covered in newspapers and last month’s unpaid bills. Every drawer in your home is a junk drawer. Does this sound familiar? Do you want to manage your home better, but just don’t know where to start? Bootcamp for Lousy Housekeepers is the book that can help you transform your home from “messed” to “blessed” in a month (or less!) and keep it clean For Good! Heidi Schaap teaches you what to clean, how often to clean it, how to maintain your newly-cleaned home and more!
Heidi is a wife and mother of eight children, all of whom are educated at home. She believes any woman can exercise dominion over her home with the help of the Holy Spirit, a bottle of Windex, and a good plan. Chocolate doesn’t hurt, either.

“As someone who has tried them all (and I really do mean “all”…), I have to thank you for your book. The other programs all have some very valuable things to offer…But your approach works best for me because 1) I love the focus on pleasing God and fulfilling our calling 2) the daily focus blocks and maintenance blocks break the tasks into manageable sub-sets 3) it’s delightfully old-fashioned and sensible to establish a rhythm for our days and group similar chores together so you can say, as you wrote in your book, “Good has been done here,” plan ahead knowing what each day will hold, and rest in the knowledge that everything will be taken care of 4) it’s flexible and you can tailor the lists to your needs, and 5) there aren’t any emails to keep up with or products to buy…I also really appreciate the encouragement and motivation. This is a well-written book that speaks to me like a sister or friend. For anyone who is overwhelmed looking at the lists, just remember that things are broken out step-by-step, but you can reduce the number of items on the lists by simplifying (for example, “clean bathroom” instead of “spray tub, scrub toilets, clean windows” etc.). Also, you don’t have to be a stay-at-home mom to use this system. I am a working mom out of necessity and I just shorten the daily focus block to half an hour to an hour, have a morning and evening routine, and one daily maintenance block that involves a five-minute clean-up in each room, and am grateful for what I do get done instead of dwelling on what I don’t get done… I highly recommend Bootcamp for anyone looking for a doable plan for household management. Thank you, Heidi, for a wonderful system!” – Cheyenne

“Bootcamp for Lousy Housekeepers has helped me break down the task of running a household into manageable pieces. Unlike other books, this gives step-by-step guidance in setting up a system AND the how-to’s of actually getting things clean and keeping them that way. It’s a homemaker’s goldmine of information about everything from menu-planning, cleaning, organizing, and so much more.” – Amy

“We had someone come over for a meeting. I did not panic. I did not spend all day madly cleaning. I did not hide laundry in my room. I said, “Cool”. I love Bootcamp!” – Sharon

“Bootcamp for Lousy Housekeepers is the perfect book for homemakers who want to do better, but have no idea where to start. It revolutionized my understanding of how to conquer the dirty house beast and gave me the vision for where I wanted to end up. This book is not a gimmick or a magic pill, but the guide that takes the thinking and planning out of working smarter. I cannot recommend this book enough!” – Adrienne

“This is one book that NEEDS to be in every housekeeper’s home, or should I say in every home. It really will work if you put the small amount of effort in it in the beginning.” – Theresa

Forks Over Knives: The Plant-Based Way to Health

Forks Over Knives: The Plant-Based Way to Health

Gene Stone

What if one simple change could save you from heart disease, diabetes, and cancer?

For decades, that question has fascinated a small circle of impassioned doctors and researchers—and now, their life-changing research is making headlines in the hit documentary Forks Over Knives. Their answer? Eat a whole-foods, plant-based diet—it could save your life.

It may overturn most of the diet advice you’ve heard—but the experts behind Forks Over Knives aren’t afraid to make waves. In his book Prevent and Reverse Heart Disease, Dr. Caldwell Esselstyn explained that eating meat, dairy, and oils injures the lining of our blood vessels, causing heart disease, heart attack, or stroke. In The China Study, Dr. Colin Campbell revealed how cancer and other diseases skyrocket when eating meat and dairy is the norm—and plummet when a traditional plant-based diet persists. And more and more experts are adding their voices to the cause: There is nothing else you can do for your health that can match the benefits of a plant-based diet.

Now, as Forks Over Knives is introducing more people than ever before to the plant-based way to health, this accessible guide provides the information you need to adopt and maintain a plant-based diet. Features include:

Insights from the luminaries behind the film—Dr. Neal Barnard, Dr. John McDougall, The Engine 2 Diet author Rip Esselstyn, and many others
Success stories from converts to plant-based eating—like San’Dera Prude, who no longer needs to medicate her diabetes, has lost weight, and feels great!
The many benefits of a whole-foods, plant-based diet—for you, for animals and the environment, and for our future
A helpful primer on crafting a healthy diet rich in unprocessed fruits, vegetables, legumes, and whole grains, including tips on transitioning and essential kitchen tools
125 recipes from 25 champions of plant-based dining—from Blueberry Oat Breakfast Muffins and Sunny Orange Yam Bisque to Garlic Rosemary Polenta and Raspberry-Pear Crisp—delicious, healthy, and for every meal, every day.

Praying the Bible: The Book of Prayers

Praying the Bible: The Book of Prayers

Wesley Campbell

Everyone learns to walk before running, and every believer learns to vocalize prayer before moving into sustained deep silences of communion with God. By Jesus’ example, we know that He prayed the Scriptures aloud. Praying the Bible takes an old concept, the prayer book, and gives it a modern twist: complete passages of Scripture laid out in sections of distinct prayer genres. Eight categories with eighty-eight prayers enable readers to quickly reference the prayers of the prophets, the wisdom prayers, the prayers of Jesus, the apostolic prayers, and more. The introductions to each section expand on each specific type of prayer and also include detailed instruction on how to pray that specific section. This is a prayer tool for both the novice prayer and the seasoned intercessor that provides discipline and focus.

Pontius Pilate

Pontius Pilate

Paul L. Maier

In a world full of DVD extras, behind-the-scenes commentary, and social media, people are used to getting the story behind the story. Readers want to understand not just what happened but why. This historical novel of the man who washed his hands of the crucifixion does just that! Award-winning historian and best-selling author Paul L. Maier has created a compelling style of documentary fiction. He uses what is historically known of Pilate’s life and rise to power, adds in the known political climate of first-century Judea, and unveils the colorful, untold story that changed history for all time. He provides intriguing answers to questions such as: What really happened at that most famous of trials? Were the proceedings against Jesus legal? Did cowardice or necessity motivate Pilate’s judgment? What became of this successful Roman politician after his verdict? Filling in the details of Pilate’s early career in Rome, Maier captures the drama of imperial Rome under the all-powerful Tiberius Caesar, the plottings of his political allies and enemies, and his relationship with his beloved but ambitious wife, Procula. His great moment arrives as he exchanges the intrigues of Rome for the bewildering environment of Judea, navigating new and dangerous waters. In Pontius Pilate, Maier paints a picture for modern readers to help them understand the behind-the-scenes complexities, political and religious realities, and ultimately, the humanity of the people we know from Scripture.
