What is Gospel-Centered Homemaking?
Finding joy in your home….for God’s Glory!
As a brand new wife I was eager and excited to make a home for my new husband and myself. But as I quickly discovered, I had just about ZERO homemaking skills. I hadn’t bothered to learn it when I was living at home – there seemed like too many other good things to do.
So I found myself in a one bedroom apartment, struggling to keep it clean or know how to organize it well. I didn’t know the first thing about nutrition or how to cook. And quickly – I got discouraged and a little overwhelmed. But I picked myself up, resolved to try harder.
Fast forward a few years and Jason and I decided to start a family. Little did we know that within 2 years, we would welcome four sons into our family. God blessed us with two sets of twins in two years. It’s been a little nuts and more than a little overwhelming at times.
Throughout all of this, I’ve questioned so many times: What is the point of it all? What’s the point of scrubbing the toilets and washing the dishes…again. Changing the fourth diaper in a row. Is this really how I’m supposed to spend my time?
Am I truly making an impact for God’s kingdom, while I sit in my house at 2pm, still in my pajamas and I scrubbing poop out of the carpet from my 3 year old potty trainer?
Ultimately: How can I glorify God from within my home? How can I be an effective servant of Christ while dealing with cooking, cleaning, poopy diapers and more. How can I find joy within my home when I am so utterly exhausted and overwhelmed?
And out of that, is where my ministry has been born. I have a heart and passion for connecting with other women who feel discouraged, burnt-out, and utterly overwhelmed. I want to encourage you on those long, hard, weary days and more than anything, I want to point you back to Christ.
Come along on the journey towards discovering what it means to craft a Gospel-Centered Home…all for God’s Glory while finding immense joy and contentment in the process!
