“Sheila is about to challenge your thinking about your role as a wife and mother. I don’t say that lightly. I read more advice about mothering and womanhood in a week than most people read in a year. But Sheila is on to something here.”

—Carla Barnhill
Editor, Christian Parenting Today

“In To Love, Honor, and Vacuum, Sheila speaks to both the heart and habits of the woman who is wife and mother. The lessons in this book are biblical, do-able and affordable! I highly recommend it.”

—Margaret B. Buchanan
Author of Famous Jerks of the Bible

"I was grabbed from the start . . . I think Ms. Gregoire has been peeking in my windows! This is a ‘must read’ for any woman who has wondered why she doesn't derive pure joy from her role as Domestic Goddess!”

—Mia Cronan
MainStreetMom.com

“Filled with spiritual wisdom and practical tips.”

—Karen Stiller
Associate Editor of Faith Today magazine

Sheila Wray Gregoire, a born entrepreneur, writes for numerous magazines and speaks to a variety of audiences across North America, combining the realities of a family with Scripture for real-world, real-biblical answers. In addition, she and her husband, Keith, “tag-team” homeschool their kids.

Editorial Reviews

Living Light News
To Love, Honor, and Vacuum is full of helpful, practical ideas that any mom can use to simplify and bring balance to her life, no matter how hectic it has become.
Faithfulreader.com
To Love, Honor, and Vacuum offers encouragement for the overwhelmed, freedom from perfectionism, and a vision of life dominated by care.
Author's Choice Book Reviews
. . . A must read for any woman who finds herself too busy, too tired and too frustrated to enjoy and cherish the most important blessings in her life mainly her husband, her children and her Lord.
Christian Observer
. . . Make[s] a great spring board for discussion groups. . . provides a stimulus to do practical things to make life happier for everyone and also shows that one's feelings of frustration and anger are shared by others in similar situations.
San Diego Family Magazine
Before you give up and let cat litter take over, read this book and get ready for a whole new approach to home management.
WRGN
If you find yourself stressed by housework, this is the book for you.
CBA Marketplace
This book is about taking control. It's too easy for a woman's day to be dictated by other's needs; however, when a woman exerts some control over her activities, she'll be happier, she'll receive more respect and she's even likely to get more help. Gregoire's enthusiasm, real-life examples, and emphasis on healthy relationships will encourage women to embrace their responsibilities.

Meet the Author

From a babysitting collective to an herbal bath business, Sheila Wray Gregoire would rather create her own job than have someone hire her—a born entrepreneur. But being raised by a single mom, even one who did a wonderful job, left a hole where her father should have been and fueled her passion to preserve marriages. She and her husband, Keith, "tag-team" homeschool their kids. She also writes for national magazines and speaks across the country, combining the realities of a family with Scripture for real-world, real-biblical answers.
