Bring on the Clothes
Radio Hostess: Lysa TerKeurst

Last week a friend told me that her kids have done their own laundry for years. Hi, I’m Lysa TerKeurst for Proverbs 31 Ministries. I thought this was a great idea because it’s a basic life skill we should all be able to do. But at the same time I just had to know her secret for keeping this family chore on a regular self sustaining schedule.

She admitted that she still needs to remind her now young teen to do his laundry. But several years ago she thought of something simple and fun to keep him doing it week after week. She lets him drop his dirty clothes from the loft on the second floor down to the first floor where they fall right at the entrance to the laundry room. It saves him the time of carrying it downstairs and its fun for him to send it sailing.

What an easy way to keep a rather dull chore from being too monotonous! For more ideas and encouragement visit
