Understanding Areas of Focus:

Focus on one area of your home for six days. Do your basics and spend 15 to 30 minutes decluttering or cleaning in your zone per day week. Sunday is a day of rest. The Father knew what He was doing in creating a rhythm of work and rest.

Key:  D= Daily W= Weekly M= Monthly S=Seasonally EOM= Every Other Month
