The Secret to Becoming the Homemaker You Want to Be

Whether you are a stay-at-home mom of 12, a single mom, a work-outside-the-home mom, or anything in between, we all have one thing in common.

We want our homes to be a place of tranquility.

No one wakes up in the morning and wishes that there were just a few more dishes in the sink or that the pile of laundry was just a bit bigger. We all desire to find ourselves in a home that runs peacefully and efficiently. But this is the real world. Who has time for that? And who among us is really qualified anyway?

Setting a CHIRSTmas Atmosphere in Your Home – Young Wife’s Guide

I want to savor this season. I want to build special memories for our four boys. I want to slow down and be able to focus on Christ and the Gospel throughout the month of December. So I’m preparing early this year and planning ahead.

It has already helped me feel like I’m being more intentional with this season that tends to fly by so quickly. So I’m excited today to pass along all my favorite things to help set the CHRISTmas atmosphere in your home. You’ve still got plenty of time to implement these things.

Hf #46: Making an idol of Your Home (and Homemaking) – Young Wife’s Guide

An example from Mary & Martha
We are going to look at a familiar passage of the Bible to help illustrate this. The story of Mary and Martha. We enter the scene in Luke 10 and we see Jesus lovingly teaching inside Mary & Martha’s home. Mary is sitting quietly as Jesus’ feet, soaking in his words, being near her savior. Meanwhile, Martha is busy preparing their home for all these extra guests! She’s running to and fro lighting fires, preparing meals, making beds, and more. She’s busy practically serving the Lord…

But suddenly, she realizes she is alone in the kitchen kneading the dough…where did her sister Mary go who is supposed to be helping to get dinner on the table? Martha becomes angry and asks Jesus to tell her lazy sister to help her! Jesus instead says, “Martha, Martha, you are anxious and troubled about many things, but one thing is necessary. Mary has chosen the good portion, which will not be taken away from her.” – Luke 10:42

Finding joy in the everyday: Truly beautiful homes

“Home was intended to be so much more than just a place of bare essentials” Sally Clarkson

To make our home truly beautiful one must have God as the centre of all activities. Guest must feel welcome and there is an air of generosity, peace, calmness and love. Your children will grow up to remember their home as a place of warmth and kindness, where all those who visit felt comfortable to gather and talk about things that mattered to them. In all likelihood, these children will grow into adults who will create the same sort of home.

Making Your Home A Haven Series : From All Over The Internet  Part 1 (Comments From Sarah)

Cook things with pleasant aromas like homemade bread, pies, and cookies. Don’t wait to have a reason to make something special – do it simply to show love to your family. Invite your kids and/or hubby to cook along side of you – make memories in the kitchen – test tasting, being creative, laughing and loving. Remember the importance of dinner time around the table as a family.

Live out the fruit of the Spirit this week by showing
love, goodness and faithfulness to your family.

Giving Thanks for the Ordinary

November 3, 2015 by Courtney

The 6th Annual “Making Your Home a Haven” series has come to an end, but I don’t want to stop building on the foundation we have already set.

So while our candles are going…
and the soft music is playing…
and the fun mom is smiling…
and the tasty smells are lofting through the air from dinner in the oven…
let’s add in “Giving Thanks”!

In November in America, we celebrate the holiday of Thanksgiving, so it is fitting that we apply 1 Thessalonians 5:16-18 in our homes this month.  It says:

 “Rejoice always, pray without ceasing,  give thanks in all circumstances; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you”.
