Welcome to my brand new podcast: The Homemaking Foundations Podcast – Where we give you the tools, inspiration, and encouragement you need to craft a Gospel-Centered Home. This podcast has been in the works for over a year (yeah – we ordered the microphone and equipment needed LAST December). And I am so over the moon excited that we are finally launching season 1 which will run from June 2nd until mid-December.
So join me back here every Tuesday for a new episode of the Homemaking Foundations podcast! This first episode kicks off defining what a homemaker is – and then we will move into all different aspects of homemaking, Biblical womanhood, marriage, and so much more. You can sign up to get an email when the podcast is posted each week.
What is a Podcast?
You can find all the show notes below – but I know that not everyone is familiar with what a podcast is. So I want to briefly cover what a podcast is and how you can listen along. Read about my favorite podcast’s I listen to here.
A podcast is basically like a weekly online radio show. You can subscribe to the podcast through iTunes, sign up for my email updates, or follow along right here on the blog. Like I said, we will cover all aspects of Gospel-Centered Homemaking and I will be bringing on many amazing guests to share their wisdom and advice on homemaking. Check back for episode #2 for our first guest!
In This Episode, You Will Learn:
- What the real definition of a homemaker is
- Do you have to be a wife and/or mom to be a homemaker?
- Learning how to be a more efficient and effective homemaker
- Letting things go and becoming more disciplined
- How (and why) to learn from other women

Before we launch into various aspects of homemaking in later episodes of this podcast, I wanted to first kick off by laying a firm foundation of what a homemaker is. So as I sat down to start writing the notes for this podcast, I decided that instead, I would just share my first session from the Homemaking From Scratch Online Conference that we had back in October. I knew that if I tried to re-record this same content, it wouldn’t come out as well the second time.
So feel free to ignore the references to the conference – or if you want to check it out, you can still download the full conference, notes, and bonuses HERE – and instead focus on the core message: What defines a Biblical Homemaker?
I want to challenge you to think outside the box a little when it comes to being a homemaker. I don’t think that a homemaker is something you become, but rather, something that you are.
“As so train the young women to love their husbands and children, to be self-controlled, pure, working-at-home, kind, and submissive, that the word of God may not be reviled.” – Titus 2:4-5
