Creating A Peaceful Home

1 Corinthians 14:33 
 For God is not a God of confusion but of peace. 

There are moments in life when we feel chaos! Chaos in our minds, souls, families and homes.  
I try to create a home of peace for my family. With 4 kids its often an illusion in my mind Im sure but there are certain things I do that help me to create a peaceful home for our family. 

Natural Light
Nature is a direct reflection of peacefulness to me. I leave our windows open to let the natural light in giving that airy feeling.
Entrance 
As soon as you walk in our front door you are welcomed by photos of our family. I think this helps to give our kids a sense of belonging. They know they are supposed to be here, are a part of our family and are loved.
Smells
Our sense of smell is one of the best senses we have. Its been documented that our sense of smell is one of the biggest triggers to memories. I like to have Essential Oils in our diffuser that are calming and peaceful or reflect the season. My favorite oils for the season can be found HERE.
Simplicity
I find my own mind is clearer and at peace when I have simplicity in what my eyes can see. Less clutter and toys. Things in their places. Baskets are often found in our home to help keep things in their places and create uniformity. {Looking for ways to use baskets? Check out this blog post.}

My wish for you is that you find your home is a place of comfort and peace. I recently have found areas in our home are a bit chaotic. Join me in the weeks to come as I share how Ive brought peace back to our home and created a balanced environment.
