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!

        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!
