Being Kind & Good

Being Kind & Good

As Women of the Home, the call to be “good” and “kind” is a vital call to heed. In our culture, we have lost a solid understanding of what these words really mean.

But God’s call to be good and kind are based solely upon His unchanging character.

Being A Homemaker

Being A Homemaker

In our culture, we fight against the idea that women can do anything men can do. In some ways, being a “homemaker” in our culture takes a back seat while trying to pursue a man’s career. However, according to Scripture, women and men have equal value but different roles. We are not made the same. That’s why we work so well together! According to this passage, women are called to be managers of their own homes, and loving toward their husbands and children. This is not a woman’s-only place, but it is a vital part of our role as women. We are made to care, to nurture, and to bring beauty that refreshes and nourishes.

How to Decorate Your Mantle

How to Decorate Your Mantle

When my husband and I married nearly 5 years ago, he joined me in my already-decorated-to-my-taste condo where we lived the next few years. He wasn’t shy about pointing out what felt busy (or dare I say, cluttered?) and not particularly to his liking. Fast forward to last fall. We purchased our first home together—a […]
