Have you ever felt really frustrated about chores with your kids? Maybe a bit like a failure as a parent because they just won’t listen at chore-time? I have SO been there (and sometimes, I still am).
But those feelings of defeat are unfounded. It’s the enemy whispering in our ear. He wants us to give up.
He doesn’t want us to keep trying or to diligently train our children. The tempter knows that if we allow our children to fester lazy or selfish habits, he’s one step closer to having their souls.
“Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil walks about like a roaring lion, seeking whom he may devour.” 1 Peter 5:8 NKJV
Because sometimes, Christianity is TOUGH. Sometimes, choosing to do what’s right isn’t fun or easy.
And if we want our children to choose the more narrow path, we must teach them to do hard things. Not for a grade or a win, but simply because it’s the right thing to do.
“Enter by the narrow gate; for wide is the gate and broad is the way that leads to destruction, and there are many who go in by it. Because narrow is the gate and difficult is the way which leads to life, and there are few who find it.” Matthew 7:13-14 NKJV
This training starts at home. Chores are a wonderful way to begin working on diligence, delayed gratification, positive choices, good work ethic, and practicing fruits of the spirit. If you want to arm your children for the spiritual battle they’re going to face after they leave your home, then I encourage you to begin right now.
You see, the question I’m asked more than anything else is how I get my kids on board with chores. And, because I want to help you succeed at home with your family, I put together a CHORE WAR KIT! It includes all the essentials for getting started in transforming your family’s perspective of chores, so you can start winning in your home!
(And, surprise! We’re adding a couple of videos to the kit this week to help you even more! These are GOLD for those of you who want to train your kids but are met with resistance when you try.)
Here’s a sneak peek at just some of what’s included in this Chore War Kit:
If you’ve ever wondered why chores are important, felt like your kids are too old or too young to train, or like you’re just too busy to teach them, then you NEED this eBook!

These scriptures are hand-picked just for you as you work through common heart-issues at chore time with your kids. With 32 cards total, you have 1 for every day of the month (plus a bonus card!). Put one in your pocket, tape some to the mirror, stick a few on the fridge, and put them anywhere else you usually are when you need reminders to stay grounded in Truth!
#5: HOW-TO VIDEO
What do you do when your kids aren’t as excited about the Chore War Kit as you are? What happens when they’re not thrilled to learn how to do their chores? This 15-minute masterclass video is jam-packed with information all about how to handle those sorts of issues. This alone is worth more than the price of the entire course!
For less than one dinner out because you’re way too exhausted to clean the kitchen alone AGAIN, you can have all the tools you need to begin succeeding at chores in your home.
