Thank you for recommending these resources. I would have loved to have had more guidance all those years ago when I first started out on this journey of Christian homemaking! Even as I get closer to becoming an “older woman” I appreciate reminders and the insights of others on this path of Christian homemaking and mothering. It is always fun to learn from the experiences of others.
