Wife. Mother. Truth-Seeker. Blogger. Home Educator.
Home is where the heart is and the Bible says, that “where your treasure is, there your heart will be also” (Matthew 6:21). You treasure your home and your family and the Word of God. You are a busy Mom who wants the hands of time to slow down just a little so that you can capture every moment with your children, and yet also need more time to do everything that needs your attention. You enjoy creating a lovely home, on a budget, and provide for your tribe. You adore the Proverbs 31 Woman of old and seek to be her in a modern way.
Welcome Home! My house is your house, virtually. I’ll deliver the key resources you need to unlock the challenges of homemaking.
Frugality is the new (and old) wealth. Thriftiness comes with a price — implementing time-tested wisdom consistently. Keep it Simple Sister! Nana did know a thing or two about keeping house and running a home. We need to dig in the hope-chest of knowledge and wear it like a cozy knitted hat. Making simple prudent choices now pays it forward.
You are the career woman who has taken the off-ramp and exited the paid work place to create a labor-of-love in your home space. You want to stay abreast of breaking news while you add ingredients to your InstaPot for dinner and want a simple explanation how and why the change in the Down Jones will impact your next visit to the Aldi.
You care for your spouse, kids and aging parents, want a simple Banana Republic capsule wardrobe even though you really need an apron and an Old Navy play-date uniform with some cut Sketchers sneakers that you order on Amazon Prime. I’m not against looking trendy. I’m just passionate about delivering the news du jour and having extra money in my matching Dooney & Bourke or Vera Bradley wallet and purse (depending on the outfit) to pay the bills while saving for a rainy day and beyond.
Using the Good Book as my guide and gleaning from the wisdom of other women, I create and deliver a homemade recipe for staying in tune with hot topics and in touch with reality.
I know what’s like to leave a good-paying job to follow the call of being a homemaker on a single income, being disorganized, not knowing how to boil an egg or sew a button because I never learned the basics of Home Economics in high school (all my “elective classes” were used for band class, I was a top clarinet player in the State of Florida though!). While I don’t use Algebra in my daily life now, it did take me a couple of years to figure out that I need a budget on an Excel spreadsheet, plan a menu and actually make a yummy and edible meal for my kid with a gazillion allergies. I know the feeling of being so overwhelmed and crying and wanting to give up.
I also know how it feels to be more than a conqueror, to use the skillset and education you learned in the “real world” and apply it daily to the school of hard knocks, to feel like you are winning. I know how to make that happen. I am open to learn. You are too. Hang in there Mom. You will make it happen, when you are ready.
