When you say the word ‘homemaking’, one thought comes to mind. My mom. As far as homemaking mothers go, she’s the best. She loves us, and works constantly to create a clean, loving environment for us to enjoy. She tries to make everything welcoming, and create more than just a house. She works to surround us with a wonderful home.

It’s my dream to one day have a family of my own, and a home. In the meantime, God has supplied me with a perfect example of a mother who creates not only a home, but a loving one. I hope that one day I will take after her, and I’m working to shape my future by preparing myself for that role, and reading everything I can on the subject. While I love to dream about my future like any other teenager, right now I am working to be a ‘Proverbs 31 Girl’. This section will share ideas, thoughts, books, and experiences with being a budding homemaker. Luckily, my mom is very patient, and is teaching me how to make a home. I guess that I am, in all fairness, more of a ‘room-maker’ than a homemaker, albeit a messy one.

God bless you,

-A Christian Girl

A housewife’s work… is surely, in reality, the most important work in the world… your job is the one for which all others exist.

Needless to say, I felt very inspired afterward, and wanted to start my own fall tradition. […]

Messy Perfection: The Real Goal

Our secular world has a very superficial idea of what ‘home’ should look like. Lines of tidy shoes sit in the hallway. A welcome mat that has never been used before. Spotless counters, tables, floors, chairs, and every other surface. Cute little beds are made perfectly. A gleaming, well-stocked kitchen, with not a bit of […]

Imagination: The Building Blocks of Play

We have a large yard. It’s very big, and we don’t even go in the front. We’ve lived here for just about as long as I can remember, and I can safely say that this is about the biggest yard I’ve ever seen except for the open field directly behind us. We have a patio, […]
