Every few weeks I meet with a very sweet lady from my church. We are reading a book together, so we spend time discussing the book, and then time talking about life and prayer requests. She is not what most people would consider an older lady, but she is about fifteen years older than I am and has quite a bit more life experience, so therefore she makes a wonderful, godly mentor.
When we met together on Tuesday, she made a comment that got me thinking. I was asking her about what advice she would give someone to prepare before motherhood.
She said, “I would tell them to get their home life organized and their home making routine down to an art now, because that will make it so much easier once they have children to think about.”
That got me thinking, how many young (and even some older) women out there are in the midst of busy lives and feeling like they live in chaos?
Probably quite a few. I do not claim to be an expert in this area, but although I have only been married three years, I have spent that time learning to manage my household and it has served me well. I would like to share with you several things that I do that help keep my life simplified, and free me up to have time to serve outside my home and enjoy my friends and family (even while working 40 hours a week outside the home).
Welcome to this new series on Making Your House A Home. I hope that you will find helpful information, as well as share your own advice on how you manage your household!
