Dear Friends:
It's summer time, but "the living ain't easy,"
especially if you have to multi-task.
Most of us do. It seems like as soon as
I get one part of the house clean, I have
to start all over again! Do you feel me?
If so, I want to recommend that you consider
hiring someone to help you. I've had to
"break the vase" and do so on occasion.
I want to introduce you to a lovely mother of
three children. She's single and trying to
raise her offspring alone. Not only is she a
wonderful mother, but she is an AWESOME
housekeeper. She will clean your entire home,
or individual chores such as cleaning the stove
and/or refrigerator. She will even do your laundry!
Please give her a call and get her pricing and more
information. I've recommended her to several pastors'
wives. They are well pleased and will give a good
