A New Homemaking Series...


Here's a short video introducing a little series I'm planning on Homemaking and the temptation to strive for perfection in homemaking at the expense of a happy family life.

One thing that I think is important for people newly becoming homemakers or struggling with it, is to look for mentors with experience whose lives show their fruits - and people whom one really knows. It is very easy to gain a deceptive (not intentionally so, necessarily) picture through blogs, instagram, Facebook etc. I see a lot of girls and young women thinking, for example, that some of the "instagram super mamas" really live like their instagram depicts and that staging photos and pursuing picture-perfect are valid #goals. And their own lives risk being soooooooo disappointing as a result. Do you know what I mean?

Bless you! I love planning, but I am horrible at getting those plans off the ground. If something doesn't change by September - I'm going to be in serious trouble. I have a new baby on the way (#4 Due in mid-August) and my oldest child is starting first grade home schooling (I attended public schools). I grew up in a household that vastly differs from how I want my household to be run. There was no instruction from my mother on household chores. TV, Boxed, or fast food dinners were what we ate growing up. I cannot feed my children those things knowing what it did to my health. I have learned to cook by now, but struggle with menus and keeping with them.

I really look forward to this series and I hope it helps me work through some of my trouble areas. I overthink things too often and I am quite certain I am overthinking my homemaking.

Bravo!
My homemaking days are different, now. I'm retired but if I can give input and share some of my thoughts, I will.

I love this! I am excited for the rest of the videos :-) i don't know if you know the show 7th heaven, but that was my favorite show growing up. It was about a minister's family and his wife was this perfect housewife and perfect minister's wife and always had these nice outfits and had a hot plate of cookies waiting for her kids at the end of the day when they came home from school. Well, I grew up wanting to be Annie Camden. And it took me a lot of hard days of realizations to tell myself that I am NOT her and I will never be her, especially because she is a TV character. Once I let go of that everything seemed so much better!

i love this! Have you ever considered setting up a homemaking forum for your readers? It would be so fun to be able to dialogue with other homemakers on an ongoing basis about things, from raising children, to cooking, household budgeting, to what everyone is reading, clothing, femininity and so much more. It would be neat to have one space to share all that, i think. :)
Looking forward to this series!
