The Ministry of a Messy House

Grace in place of guilt

Amanda Robbie

Quantity

‘To love one’s neighbour messy makes.’ So writes Amanda Robbie’s father in the poem at the start of this book.

Messy is OK, even in a world gone mad with perfectionism. The author looks at ‘messy’ in the context of home, family, children, church, community, meals and celebrations. As someone who has lived in eight homes in four cities and one town, spread across three countries, in the course of her married life, she has had to reassess her priorities regularly and work out what really matters in life.

From studying the Scriptures, Amanda has discovered that it’s God’s grace that matters, not our flawless performance or impressive presentation. In fact – dare we say it? – it’s OK to do things imperfectly and even fail. Yes, honestly.

This book will lift the burden of guilt from your sagging shoulders. It will free you up to enjoy serving God, imperfectly by this world’s standards, but in a way that pleases our heavenly Father

The Ministry of a Messy House

I am only half way through this book. I'm reading it from the point of view of a first time grandma advising and helping my daughter in the caring of her baby and all that it entails. Enjoyable read and very realistic.
