  Homemaking is not at all what I originally dreamed it would be many years ago, when I left my job to stay home.

In those days, I naively thought my days would be spent doing a little cleaning--keeping a perfect home, cooking gourmet meals, in my little ruffled apron, and spending time with my sweet little people (there were only two then!).

What I didn't realize, was how much skill and effort must go into a properly ran home. I was not at all educated or trained for what I had stepped into! All this, and, I had decided to begin homeschooling our oldest daughter!

I quickly realized I was in over my head.

Since those days, I've become a student of managing and maintaining my home and the precious ones that dwell within it's walls.

I've taken classes, sat through lectures, spent countless hours in the library, and of greatest value, have been blessed by the Lord with carefully placed older women in my life, who were understanding and patient to teach me to love my husband, care for my children and make my home.

I won't pretend that this web space will ever be all it could be, nor everything you need to know.

I do hope it acts as a place of teaching and learning. I hope that if nothing else, it conveys the importance of your role within your home.

Your family's success depends largely
on the management of your home.

Done correctly, it's care should fill your days and your heart.

May God's wisdom and guidance be yours,

Ministering To Others

It is amazing what we can learn from those around us if we just look.

For instance, even raking a yard, delivering a meal, or spending an afternoon with an older person in your life might provide a wealth of learning opportunities. They are real living history.

I'll never forget the day that I sat in my Great-Grandmother's bedroom brushing her hair. I think it was perhaps the first glimpse I had of the experience this dear woman held. For her, I was pampering her and keeping her company. For me, she was sharing her memory of first hearing the reports of the sinking of the "unsinkable" Titanic and instilling within a deep respect for the tragedy and sadness of a nation.

You might come across an older man who has vivid war memories to share, or a wise older woman who can share her lessons of running a home and a family during an era when times were tight and there wasn't always "enough to go around".

Ministering to Others is an every day living, every day learning experience that will help others, yes, but the benefit to your child will be immeasurable.
