In today’s fast-paced and ever-changing world, it seems the concept of homemaking sometimes is undervalued. However, the importance of creating a haven for your family remains as relevant and honorable as ever. In a society where individuals are constantly bombarded with external pressures and obligations, the role of the homemaker becomes even more crucial. It is within the walls of a well-cared-for home that families find solace, comfort, and a sense of belonging. By dedicating time and effort to creating a nurturing environment, homemakers play a vital role in fostering love, unity, and stability within their families. From the smallest details of decor to the warmth of homemade meals, homemaking offers an opportunity to cultivate a sanctuary that offers respite from the outside world’s demands. In this ever-evolving era, where time is often scarce, and distractions abound, the art of homemaking reminds us of the value of creating a haven where love, care, and shared memories can flourish.
Somewhere along the way, our society has embraced the idea that being a homemaker isn’t “good enough” for modern women.
But homemaking matters now more than ever before.
Before I get into why I believe, with my whole heart homemaking matters, let me clear the air.
This is a 100% judgment-free zone. I am not here to make you feel bad about your choices, or what you need to do to survive. I am here to cheer you on and help support you in your journey to create a home life you love, whether you work full-time, part-time, or stay at home. It doesn’t matter if kids live at home or have no kids living at home. I want to empower you wherever you are in life.
Ok, let’s get back into it…
If you subscribe to my emails, you will know the story of how this blog was born, and why I choose to emulate the 1950s Housewife. Yes, I wanted a clean and efficient household, but even more importantly, I wanted to build a family culture and home life that promotes love, peace, togetherness, and generosity. I wanted me and my home to be a soft place for my family to land after a long day.
I want my kids to feel loved, nurtured and cared for.
I want my husband to feel appreciated and to be able to relax and find comfort after a long day.
I want a home with systems in place so I don’t feel drained and overwhelmed managing it.
Homemaking is about so much more than cleaning, and as the homemaker, you have the power to accomplish all this!
Here is the thing, the world is not a kind place. There have always been, and there will always be, mean, rude, and disrespectful people, but it seems lately incivility is on the rise. From politics to drivers on the freeway and just about every situation in between, there is a loss of the niceties and manners that once defined civil society.
Which makes creating a calm and comfortable home environment all the more important.
