Homemaking for Girls
Homemaking. Such a simple word for such a complex job. How does one go about making a home?
There's cooking and cleaning, of course. But there’s so much more to it, isn’t there? And as we begin to teach our daughters, it can be confusing and overwhelming.
Maybe, like so many of the moms I’ve heard from, no one ever taught you how to run a home. Maybe you’ve figured it all out via trial and error, and -- thanks be to God -- it’s going okay. Sure, there’s been bumps and bruises along the way, but you’re on the way.
But we want more for our daughters. We don’t want them to fumble their way through the first few years of marriage, and learn the hard way. We want to teach them as they grow under our care… to cook, to clean. To love God’s Word. To practice hospitality. To respect their husbands.
Do you need ideas and inspiration for teaching your daughters homemaking skills? I'm compiling a list here of lessons you can share with your daughters (and, for the record, sons, too!). I am working on more lessons to add, so check back in or sign up for updates by email here.
