Hello Friend,

Grab a warm beverage and sit with me for a moment.

You know there is more to being a homemaker than cooking, cleaning, and feeling like you’re just surviving every day. You desire to see the purpose in what you’re doing, that you’re making a difference in the lives of your loved ones. You don’t want to get caught up in comparing yourself to others or grumbling about the work set before you.

If you are in Christ, the Lord has called you first to Himself and then to serve others in the midst of our ordinary days. He has called us into the role we are in, and He will equip us to be faithful servants to love and minister to what He has placed in our care.

Your role as a homemaker matters to God. You can find contentment and joy in caring for your home and family when you keep your eyes on Christ and His calling for your life. Our contentment in our homemaking begins with finding our satisfaction in Christ.

This is why Thankful Homemaker was created – to remind you: 

  • To see the purpose and importance of your calling as a Christian Homemaker.
  • To keep your eyes on the eternal and not the temporal. 
  • You can have order in your days to have time to focus on what is most important. 
  • In each moment, the Lord is molding you more and more into the image of Christ. 
  • We’re not seeking perfection but faithfulness, one moment at a time. 
  • To do all your work as unto the Lord. 
  • There is always time to do the will of God. 

Thankful Homemaker provides truth-filled, gospel-driven encouragement to homemakers who amid their ordinary days desire to honor and glorify God in all things.

How Can I Support Thankful Homemaker?

Your support is a huge help in keeping the content on the blog and podcast free.

Thank you for even considering it – I couldn’t continue to produce free content if it wasn’t for supporters like you 🥰
