Welcome! I’m Jami and this is Young Wife’s Guide to Gospel Centered Homemaking or simply YWG. I began my blogging journey in October 2009 shortly after I got married. I have fallen in love over the years with blogging and the community and friends I have met along the way. So a little bit about me.
I am 22 years old with a bachelor’s degree in Biblical Studies and History. I have a love for God’s word, Hebrew, Biblical Counseling, the Truth and delving into the theology that should rule our hearts and lives.
I have always been a crafter at heart. I began scrapbooking in highschool and since getting married I have moved on to card making, sewing, decorating, playing with my cricut, and every kind of craft in between.
I never disliked cooking and I wasn’t bad at it, I just never enjoyed it or put any effort into it before. I didn’t see cooking as an artistic expression and definitely did not realize how little I actually knew about it. But once I got married I quickly realized how little I knew and how important knowing how to cook good nutritious meals for my family is! Thus my cooking journey began.
I think about how far I’ve come in almost 3 years and think about how far I could be if I had come into marriage with these skills.
That is why this blog was born. I want to encourage young women out there to learn these skills and learn to love their homes as a place that provides refuge and as a light for Christ.
I love to write, though I feel my skills are poorly lacking in many areas i.e. grammar! My husband proof reads all my posts ;) Thanks honey!
I dream of starting a family soon and we plan to Homeschool if the Lord wills us to have children (I seriously can’t wait to Homeschool! I am already dreaming of lessons)
I have a strong passion for Homemaking. The home is our domain ladies! Why do we spend so many years preparing for high school graduation and college and so little time preparing to be wives and mothers? I want to reverse that trend. The culture tells us that there is no value in staying home. We feel judged when Christians and non-Christians alike ask us about our future careers plans and we quietly mumble something about staying home.
Yet, we know better. The Lord has called us to an amazing vocation. Most of us will be called to be wives and mothers but even for those whom God has a different plan, we can glorify Him by being workers at home and keeping our home a place of refuge, warmth and Gospel centered for our families.
I dream of being completely counter cultural and showing the world the amazing blessings of foregoing a traditional career and pursuing the life God has for me.
