"If you want to bring happiness to the whole world, go home & love your family." Mother Teresa
The Bible calls ALL women to be homemakers. The home acts as a tangible location that represents a myriad of intangible truths.
Home is a place of refuge, refreshment, & rest. Home is a place of hospitality, healing, & hope. Home is a place of comfort, learning, & laughter. Home is a place of BELONGING.
A house is a home, because there is someone who makes it that way.
As homemakers we are called to extend grace, welcoming those who enter our homes with open arms & without complaint (1 Peter 4:9). Letting those who grace our doorstep know they are cherished, cared for, provided for, & deeply loved.
It is a high & holy calling.
