Last week I shared how I knew my husband could not trust me, to be the homemaker he needs me to be. I challenged myself, and you, to do the first step of homemaking, which is working on your heart. To spend every day in the word, and pray to see if you had any rebellion against homemaking.
How did I do?
This challenge has really helped me. I am not really able to do the typical Wake-Up-Early-And-Do-Devotions style of quiet time, so it has been hard to get into a routine. I did my quiet times during nap times, if they happened, or while Mark was putting the kids to bed. So, I now know it CAN be done.
Did I Learn Anything?
Disclaimer: This is my personal story. I am not saying it is the case for anyone else.
How did you do? Did you learn anything? Please tell us in the comments.
Week number 2- I do not know about you but I am ready to dig in deeper. So, here we go. You need four things to keep a home. The will, a goal, the ability, and a plan. This week we will be talking about the goal. I challenge you, and me, to make a Homemaking Mission Statement. One thing first, It will look different for every person. We are all in different seasons, keeping vastly different homes, and being a helpmeet and mom to vastly different people. That and we ourselves are different.
This week ask AT LEAST 4 people what keeping a home looks like to them. AT LEAST two older women you have deep respect for, your husband, and also pray about it to learn what you need in a home. Then I would like you to prayerfully write a Homemaking Mission Statement rough draft. Through out the rest of week revisit, reavuluate, and rewriting it as needed. Next Monday feel free to share it with us. Sharing will be to inspire NOT to compare.
Have a lovely week! May God bless you.
