The Humbled Homemaker

I’m a 30-year-old stay-at-home wife and mother and freelance writer who’s hopelessly flawed on my own but redeemed by my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. I’m a work in progress: the same God who created me in my mother’s womb is still weaving and spinning to make me who He wants me to be.

I’m starting this blog in January 2011 because I’m hoping to work towards becoming a better homemaker this year and in the years to come.

Although I enjoy reading and have learned a lot from other mom blogs, I often find myself frustrated that I can’t measure up or live the perfectly-ordered lives of the writers.

My life is FAR from perfect. I struggle every day to effectively care for my two children, provide healthy food for my family, keep the house clean and organized, shop wisely, balance time with the Lord with home life, outside-of-the-home activities and keeping up with a part-time writing gig at several local newspapers.

Most of the time, I fail. Sometimes I feel WAY over my head.

But I’ve given my desires to the Lord to help me somehow figure this whole homemaking thing out, and I hope real, less-than-perfect wives and mothers like myself will join me on this journey.

I hope that through my blog, we will laugh, learn and be inspired  together.

We may be “humbled homemakers,” but God will lift us up!
