Becoming a Homemaker

I am a wife, a mother... a Homemaker. However I haven't always been a homemaker and though I have had some lessons and experience as to how to cook and clean and even care for children, I am very new to "Managing" my home, treating it like the very important job it is. Being on time, keeping track of things, you know like paying the light bill before they shut you off or showing up to a doctors appointment on the right day (hehe I have shown up on the wrong day before) or how about something as simple as having clean socks for your husband, or showing his hard work some respect and being frugal with the family income. I am on a journey to change the way I think about and do homemaking. To start seeing it as the most important job there is. After all we who are staying home and raising our families, we are raising up the next generation, we are molding the future. We have a most important job and don't let anyone tell you other wise, no more listening to nay sayers who try and tell you you're not contributing to your family or society these are lies! We are contributing more than anyone, but it is time we start taking this job seriously, and that is where I am in my journey. I am ready to take this job seriously. I will be seeking out all sorts of good old fashioned homemaking skills trying them out and posting them here. I hope some of you will join me in this journey to reclaim our homes, our children and our loving husbands, and stand proud of the job and title we carry... Homemakers. (Okay I'm jumping off the soap box now someone else can use it lol)


  1. Hello,
    I found your blog through the Sew Mama Sew sewing machine meme. Just wanted to let you know I'm enjoying your blog!

    Take care,

  2. I too am taking on the task of becoming a homemaker. I really want to do this and be good at it. I work a 40 hour week job plus my husband and I own our own business so I may find some challenges along the way but I want to manage my home better and hope to someday be a full time homemaker and raise some children :) I look forward to reading your blog and keeping up! Saving in!

    Take Care,
