Learning to be a Peaceful Homemaker
Homemaker. It’s a word that brings many emotions to mind.
For some, it’s an archaic idea that should hold a place only in history. For others, myself included, being a homemaker is a calling.
“the older women likewise, that they be reverent in behavior, not slanderers, not given to much wine, teachers of good things— 4 that they admonish the young women to love their husbands, to love their children, 5 to be discreet, chaste, homemakers, good, obedient to their own husbands, that the word of God may not be blasphemed.” Titus 2:3-5.*
Home. Yes, it’s the place where we reside, but it is more than that. Home is the place where we love, care for each other and learn together. It is where we can relax, unwind and share the joy of life with each other.
A Homemaker, is the keeper of the home.
As a homemaker, I am tasked with keeping my home well outfitted and appointed with needful things. Being a homemaker means that I have the honorable role of being responsible for the management of the home.
A homemaker should be ever watchful and ensuring provisions are available to those we love.
That does not mean I am solely responsible for all of the work!
It does mean that I manage the day to day maintaining of the home. That’s what a homemaker is a home manager.

But homemaking isn’t just about cleaning, organizing and meal making. It is about ensuring that loved ones are blessed with what is needed so that everyone is equipped for every good work that the Lord places before us.
Being a good homemaker means we are ever ready, ever hospitable, and ever filled with love for each other and others whom we have the opportunity to serve.

In the Home and Keeping Peace
Guess what. Homemaking isn’t really my strong suit.
It’s often a struggle for me. It is something that I strive for. Which means it takes concerted thought and discernment to achieve results.
Clean homes don’t just happen at the twitch of a nose. Clothing becomes worn, torn and outgrown, which means they need to be either repaired or replaced.
If I fall short of my task, my family suffers the consequences, so I work to sustain our home so that we can be at peace.
So follow along as I endeavor to develop my home and keeping skills. For me it most often comes down to my attitude about it. So as I prayerfully seek to honor God, my husband and the role they have placed before me, I aim for a home filled with great peace.
