We have eclectic tastes in music, so there's lots to choose from. My goal has been/is to be more intentional about having music playing during times when we're not doing things that need more focus, like reading or school work. During chores and housework is a great time to have music playing! Getting ready in the morning, cooking dinner in the evening . . . there really are plenty of appropriate times to have music playing. And during those times, we prefer not to necessarily have the volume level on low. ;)
So far we have listened to lots of Chris Tomlin, Jeff Johnson and some of Little Mister's kids worship CDs. Who knows what we'll listen to after our mellow mood subsides! :) We have quite a few CDs, but if you're not a collector of CDs, you can always go to grooveshark.com and set yourself up with a playlist. Very convenient! Don't be afraid to do silly dances with your kids or dance cheek to cheek with your husband! :)

All in all, this purposeful endeavor to haven-ize our home in the ways that matter most has been rewarding! I would recommend this challenge to everyone.
"Little Mister" has had an online name change to "Lego Meister," because he's 10 now and "Little Mister," while dear to my heart, just didn't seem to fit anymore.
Since this fall challenge is happening later this year, we have been listening to lots of Christmas music, quiet and not-so-quiet. :) It's so joyful, and certain songs help us become centered on Whose birthday we are preparing to celebrate!
