I’m continually communicating with busy homemakers to see areas that they are struggling in and need some guidance and encouragement. You are not alone, I’ve been there and I want to help you see the purpose and importance of your calling as a wife, mother, and homemaker.

Our purpose here at Thankful Homemaker is to provide truth-filled, gospel-driven encouragement to homemakers who amid their ordinary days desire to honor and glorify God in all things.

Contentment in our homemaking begins with finding our satisfaction in Christ.
