How to Keep Your Home Safe While you are on Vacation

Gun pointed at kittenHow would I ever manage without my friends?

Having so many members of Christian House Sitters scattered all around the world I am blessed to have interesting articles emailed to me from publications I would otherwise never have known existed.

An example is an article from a company called Brown Safe whose website tells me that the company was founded in 1980 and has grown into the premiere safe and vault company providing worldwide security solutions.

Today they published an article entitled

10 Ways to Keep Your Home Safe While Away on Summer Vacation(

They begin by pointing out that one of the keys to enjoying a vacation is knowing that your home is safe and secure. It can be very hard to concentrate on having a good time when you are concerned about break-ins and fires back at home.

Number one on the list was …….

1. Get a house sitter: By far, the best way to protect your home is by having a trusted friend or family member who can live in the house while you are away. If you have pets, they can take care of them at the same time. There are also house sitting services that will do this for a fee, but you have to be sure that you trust them.

Excellent advice.

Now can we improve on that advice?

Yes I believe that we can.

Firstly they say that there are house sitting services that will do this for a fee.


But with Christian House Sitters it is FREE. Yes that is right. No catch, no small print and no charge.

Then they say be sure you can trust them.

Again they are correct.

But with Christian House Sitters all our registered sitters are members of a recognised Christian Church and are willing to give you references including one from a leader in their church.

Brown & Co list a further 9 helpful suggestions but if you have a house sitter they are all unnecessary. No need to stop your mail, stop the newspaper delivery, etc.

So why not contact us and let us arrange your FREE membership as a Home Owner and start the ball rolling to get your FREE house sitter lined up for your next vacation

ABOUT Christian House Sitters Christian House Sitters is a Worldwide ministry that started in order to provide holidays for Christians and sitters for owners who needed a reliable Christian to look after their home, pets and garden. House owners do not pay anything to have their property listed. House sitters are only charged £25 per year and in return for this some enjoy numerous holidays each year. All fees from membership go to sponsor food for children at the Home of Peace Children’s Home in Kenya. This only supplies about a quarter of what is needed to feed the children so we urgently need sponsors. All funds go via our Registered Charity TLC Children’s Trust Charity Number 1156786 website N.B. Joining Christian House Sitters does NOT commit you to sponsoring a child or giving any support beyond your membership fee to these children. Although naturally if you want to support that would be greatly appreciated. We have some regular sponsors and other people who give an occasional gift. All are greatly appreciated. ABOUT RAY & MARILYN We are Marilyn & Ray White. A fun loving Christian couple who have been in Christian work for over 30 years. Marilyn was born in England but moved to Zimbabwe as a baby. At the age of 16 she moved to South Africa. Ray was born in South Africa and grew up on a farm. We met in Johannesburg and got married in 1966. Ray worked in business for many years then he worked for YfC in South Africa then went on to Bible College and Pastored a church. In 1982 we moved from South Africa to England. In addition to his theological training Ray trained in Psychology and since moving to the UK he has lectured in Psychology, counselled for the NHS and opened a Christian Counselling Centre. Marilyn is also a trained counsellor and manager. In addition to the counselling we trained Christian counsellors both in our local area and by invitation in other areas of the UK. In total over 700 people completed the training courses. Many are serving the Lord by working in or through their local churches. We also ran a secular Stress Management business. We are now semi-retired and focus our time and attention on Christian House Sitters and Ray also serves as a member of our Church Leadership Team. Ray also has an active preaching ministry and runs Christian seminars on subjects such as stress management for church groups. He has written two books. A Christian book that is a very practical workbook on Christian commitment as applied to real life. The book looks at how we can surrender ourselves more fully to God. This is looked at under the headings of Physical, Mental, Social and Spiritual commitment. The book is called Let’s Get Serious. He has also written a secular book on Stress Management called Stress Overcoming this Potential Killer. (Ray was previously Chair of the International Stress Management Association UK). News Update This book has now been released as an e-book as well A few years ago we did a 2 month House Sit in France. Whilst there we felt the Lord leading us to set up a Christian House Sitting service. Since then we have done a number of other house sits. We believe this site will benefit many Christians around the world.

  1. Hey awesome blog, just wondering what spam software you use for reviews due to the fact i get lots on my website. Can you please let me know here, so that not only I but other spectators can put it on our blogs and forums as well.

  2. My nex travel trip is to florida. I waited and worked four month for that, so i hope my loved ones truly enjoy this holiday. I would adore to have the chance for exactly the same travel experience like yours. When i was young i thought i’d purchase a house because i couldn´t stay around the same location for long time.
