Read some reviews of To Love, Honor and Vacuum:
"To Love, Honor and Vacuum is a breath of fresh air"
I'm going to start with reviews from regular moms--because they're people like you! Then we'll move to media reviews:
in my windows! If you've ever felt drained from living your very
dream of having a home and family of your very own, this book will
open your eyes. Mothers feel guilty for feeling overwhelmed by life,
but in To Love, Honor, AND Vacuum, we find ways around that. This is a "must read" for any woman who has wondered why she doesn't derivepure joy from her role as Domestic Goddess!"

As an example, the day after I finished reading the book, I still had to: get everyone ready for the day, express milk, work all day in the lab, go to the gym, come home, do laundry, cook dinner, wash the dishes, pick up the house, entertain my 6-month old while doing all of this, feed and bathe the baby, put her to bed, express more milk, start another load of laundry... But this time, I did all of my morning chores with some fun music on, had lunches ready from the night before, took care of my evening housework with a timer on to finish in a hurry, and had time to go for a walk around the neighborhood with my daughter and my dog while the casserole was in the oven. It was one of the best days I've had in a very long time, although almost nothing besides my attitude (and a few organizational tips) had changed! I even had enough energy left to get romantic with my husband (and I can tell you, he appreciated it!).
I felt that this book was enabling to me as a woman, while it seems that other authors think that I should be walked all over just because I'm a woman. There is very good Biblical and practical advice, including how to do things to get your husband to respect you.
This is one marriage book I can actually recommend, and I gladly do so.
"If there are days when you would still say, "I do" to your husband but long to say, "I don’t" to the Mt.Everest of laundry and the spaghetti sauce spitting all over your stove than this book is for you. Filled with spiritual wisdom and practical tips for setting your home in order by first getting yourself together, Sheila Wray Gregoire gently leads women back to the Source of all life, and reminds us that the chaotic, rushed lives we are leading need not be so. Her tips on child rearing, home organization and marriage are rooted in scripture and easily transplanted into our own homes. A whole new kind of home and family life can blossom. What a relief!"

"Ms. Gregoire's friendly style makes her words feel like a long letter from a caring mentor, rather than a textbook full of advice"
Janet Sketchley, Atlantic Baptist
"I loved the title of this book, and the minute I started reading it, I felt like there was someone who knew just how I feel some days!"
"Reading this book provides a stimulus to do practical things to make life happier for everyone"
"Gregoire's enthusiasm, real-life examples, and emphasis on healthy relationships will encourage women"
Kristine Wilson, CBA Marketplace
"Gregoire recognizes that for many women, housework isn't just housework. It's a source of deep anxiety, stress and friction, but it doesn't have to be that way. If housework is driving you insane, you aren't alone."
San Diego Family
"To Love, Honor and Vacuum is full of helpful, practical ideas any mom can use."
