About Me

Hi, I’m Jami and I have a passion for Biblical Womanhood, Gospel-Centered Homemaking and Christ Oriented Marriages! As women, we have a unique calling to be Keepers of our Homes {Titus 2:5} and I am on a mission to help young women find their God-given calling as homemakers!

I am excited to walk this journey with you as we discover what it means to be a godly woman, wife, mother, and sister in Christ.

About Me

I met my husband when I was 16. We began dating when I was 17 and less than two years later, we were married at the ripe old ages of 19 and 21. Less than four years later, I became a Mom of two at 22 years old. We have twin baby boys and my heart and passion lies in being a Homemaker and godly Mother/Wife for my family.

I have a bachelor’s degree in Biblical Studies and History. I have a love for God’s word, Hebrew, Biblical Counseling, and delving into theology. All this passion comes out here at YWG when I share what a unique calling we have as women.

  1. You, lady, and I are definitely kindred spirits–and not just because our names are almost the same! Your comment on my blog made my day (longest one anyone’s ever left me!). I was homeschooled too, for ten years, and Hubby and I plan on homeschooling our kids. I LOVE cooking, I love homemaking (but housecleaning tends to creep up on me), and I’m passionate about Godly womanhood and marriage. I think you and I are going to be friends. :)

    • I am so glad that you stopped by over here! I LOVE homemaking too but yeah, housecleaning REALLY creeps up on me ;) That is probably been my biggest struggle since getting married but I have learned so much. I can’t wait to get to know you more and hear more of your story. I haven’t had time today but plan on going back to your blog tonight or tomorrow and reading more :) Thanks for stopping by!

      • Hi Jamie. I’m quite new YWG but I’m really thankful to the Lord that I’ve met all of you guys at YWG and all. I’m currently in a wonderful courtship. We are both 23 and Im so excited to learn all there is about Christian centered home-making. I’m so inspired by your story. Will be following your posts. :) Namibia

    Just followed Time Warp Wife blogger over here to check it out. I was a young wife, too. I got married at 17 & had my first baby at 18! I had no idea what I was doing in house keeping, couldn’t cook, & was down right appalled they sent my newborn home with me, without much teaching beyond feeding & diapering. Lol I made it through & by the grace of God alone have my children turned out healthy and happy. My first marriage didn’t work out, with 2 selfish teenagers, not surprising, but my marriage now is much better thanks to loads of prayer. I have just recently gotten into the art of homemaking & homesteading. I look forward to your future blog posts, to learn with you. (Yes still learning 14 yrs later) :)

    • Natalie I am SO glad that you stopped by! I think the art of homemaking and raising a family is a journey we will all be on for our whole lives. But I am so happy to meet lovely ladies like yourself in blog land to share it with! :)

      Thanks for stopping by!

  3. I love your website and the fact that you recognize the worth of a home maker. I’m curious to know how you view birth control in relation to Christian teachings? This is a question that I know has caused tension in marriages. I would love a response with your view on this subject.

  4. So grateful to have found your site!!!! I was just thinking earlier today that I wish I knew more SAHMs my age in thew blogging world…and just found your site!!

  5. Ginger Sipuka says:

    this is a beautiful story…im 20 and my boyfriend of almost four years and i want to get married. im so scared to inform my parents as they told me to wait until i was older(maybe 26) but i want to begin my life with him. we love Christ and want to experience what he has for us.

    • Hi Ginger, I am sorry! That is a tough situation when your parents don’t support your decision :( You never know where your parents are though until you talk to them.

  6. Elizabeth says:

    So I just found out about your site from Comfy in the Kitchen. And I’m so excited about reading all your posts.
    From what I gather we are actually about the same age, I turned 23 about 2 months ago and my hubby and I got married at 19 in 2009! Thanks for writing everything and I’m looking forward to look to reading!

    • So glad that you stopped by!! :) Yes we are!! I’m a little behind you, I’m 22 still lol. So nice to “meet” you Elizabeth!

      • lillian says:

        Ah! I am so excited about your blog! Just found it on Intentional by Grace. This sounds completely dorky, but I don’t care. I’m excited that there is a blog out there for women that got married young (I got married at 17), and are choosing to stay home or take their jobs as wives/mothers seriously. And you’re better than I am. I only made it six months before baby fever struck! lol

        • Lillian I am so glad that you found your way here!! It’s so great to meet another young married :) LOL baby fever hit early on but my responsible hubby had to make sure we could really afford me staying home ;)

  7. I feel like I have so much in common with you!! I was married young 22, but my husband was 26.

    We are waiting for the right time for the Lord to bring us children and I’m truly enjoying this “self-ish” time with my husband. I also enjoy the ability to master skills now that I won’t have time for later.

    We want to homeschool and I do to dream about lesson plans and fun things to do!

    • Nice to meet you Abigail!! I too really enjoyed the three years my hubby and I before adding a little one. Know we are excited and looking forward to our first bundle of joy this December :)

  8. Jami, thank for your blog. I am a little older now (32!) and have four children, but I am still learning. I think it is great to share our experiences and what we are learning. I am also starting my journey to better food for our family and am enjoying your posts about real food. Keep up the great work! I know you will love homeschooling as do we. :)

  9. So glad I found your blog, like you I am a young wife, I married at 18. I am now 24 and this summer will be 6 amazing years. I was also a teen mom, getting pregnant 3 months before highschool graduation was a real eye opener for me. Over these past years since becoming pregnant with my first son I have grown so much in spirit. I have come to realize that God has great plans for me, although I decided not to go to college and become a housewife instead it was God’s plan. Now I have 2 amazing boys (5 & 1). I am now on a journey to become a “clean” momma, and I am looking forward to your blog to help me along the way!

  10. Jami,
    I just found hour website and I love it. Thank God for young women like yourself who are willing to be homemaker in spite of the current culture, you are brave and an obedient woman of God. I am 56 and a homemaker too,,,finally. I have always wanted to be a homemaker , but I grew up in the throws of the feminist movement and was brainwashed into thinking that I was suppose to have a career. So I went to college and flounder around trying to figure out what career I wanted. I finally got a degree in ” General Studies” ha ha ha. My heart was always for the home. I had gone through a terrible divorce but I am finally married to a very Godly man who believe the way I do that the home is the woman’s domain and a gift from God.

    I love being a homemaker and have never been happier. I do have the skills to manage my home, but there is more I want to learn, (i.e. crochet, gardening, canning, etc), I was never able to have children, but by no means does that diminish my role as a homemaker ( God did not say be a keeper of the home only if you have children) this is where God wants me to be and I strive to be a Proverbs 31 woman.

    Thank you so much for being an obedient young woman of God and I pray that God blesses you with children, salvation, protection, guidance and abounding love.

  12. H Jami! I’m not really a young wife (although maybe at 33 I still can qualify???) but I am definitely a new wife! I’ve been married for 2 months, I absolutely love it, and I just want to tell you how much I appreciate your website! Yay for being the women God created us to be! I’ve been reading Proverbs 31 lately and I love this whole idea of becoming the wife and woman that God designed me to be. I can’t wait to learn more about how that looks in my own life, and in my marriage…

  13. Hi ladies i just find its so nice to have come across this website , and find all of you ladies saying just how happy and contempt you are being at home, i have been wanting to be a stay at home mum for a while now, but we will see when the next baby comes along. i pray the God lord bless you all and continue to provide for you all and your families… we are rich in many many ways!

  14. Hey Jami! I am also a young wife, and am glad to have stumbled upon your website! I got married in 2008, and I was also 19, my husband 21. I don’t meet alot of “young married couples,” partly because our culture frowns upon marriage at a young age. Look forward to reading more from you!

  15. Jamie, I love your story, and you have such a beautiful family! I’m very glad I found your website :-)

  16. Dear Jami,
    I found a link to your “10 myths about young marriage” article and I cannot tell you how inspirational it is to me! I am 19 years old, and my boyfriend is 18. We believe God is calling us to marriage so we are working our way there! We have some extended family members with very worldly views who disagree with us. So thank you very much for this blog! You inspire me so much!
    Thank you!
