Cultivating your life as a homemaker takes skill, hard work, and lots of determination. Learning how to effectively juggle diapers, dirty laundry, dishes, more laundry, and oh yeah, cultivating your relationship with the Lord, isn’t easy. And yet – it’s the most important aspect of your life.

Our Family Update

2013 help the some of the happiest moments in my life and also some of the hardest. My faith grew more this year than I ever thought possible!

On December 26, 2012 we welcomed our twin bundles of joy into our home: Our twin boys Malachi & Micah! We got to welcome them into this world in 2012 but most of their lives have been over 2013. This past year I got to watch my boys grow into toddlers.

We got to see our boys first smiles, first teeth, start eating solid food, start to crawl, take their first steps, hear their first words, and celebrate their first birthday!  It’s been such an incredible journey into motherhood…and all of this happened before I turned 24. I feel so beyond blessed and these moments with my boys this year have been incredible.

Twin's First Birthday Party

Sadly, in November, my mother unexpectedly passed away at the age of 47. As it’s not even been two months since she passed away, we are still working through and dealing with this loss. But through it all, God’s love and His grace has been so evident! He has been my strength through this all and I know our family will be able to move forward in His strength! And thank you to all of those who have been praying for us during all of this. I am the oldest of four kids and have three younger brothers. My youngest brother is only 16 and this has been rough on all of us.

Moving into 2014

Throughout everything we have been through this year, the ups and the downs, the highs and the lows, I am more confident than ever that I need to rely on God’s strength, His Mercy, and His Grace to live out this life. I am more committed than ever to striving towards being a godly wife, mother, friend, and servant of Christ!

Will you join me in 2014 with a strong commitment to Biblical Womanhood and Christian Homemaking? Join me tomorrow as I share my vision for this new year and some VERY exciting things that you will be seeing from Young Wife’s Guide {and our other blogs} in 2014 and beyond!

  1. Congratulations on your boys’ milestones and sorry to hear about your mother. I know three other people who lost their moms this December – it’s tough. Many blessings to your family this year!

  2. I am so sorry to hear about the loss of your mother, Jami. Prayers are going up for you and your whole family! I just stumbled across your blog on BlogLovin and I just wanted to say you are an inspiration! I was not born a homemaker (nor did I have much training as a teenager/young adult) but after a lot of prayer I feel like God is really working in this area of my life and I am finding so much joy in really focusing on the “job”. Thank you for being such an encouragement!
