  1. I look forward to reading this series. I’ve always wanted to be a mom, a stay-at-home mom. Even so, I struggled in the early days with my worth, since I wasn’t working and contributing financially. Thankfully my Hubby appreciates me. When people would ask me what I did I would say I’m just a housewife. I wouldn’t dream of saying that anymore. I’m a wife, a mom, a homeschooling parent, a homemaker! I love the term Keeper of the Home. I subscribe to an Amish/Mennonite magazine called Keepers at Home that has really helped me embrace my role and cherish it.

  2. Thank you for your comment and the mention of the magazine – I will have to check it out! Society has degraded the role of homemaker and it is time to turn the tables! I hope you enjoy the series and encouragement it will bring to you! You do have THE MOST IMPORTANT job, even when your paycheck is not cash!

  3. Thank you so much! I appreciate your comments, especially the aspect that it is such a tough decision for us as women, whether we are stay-at-home, work-from-home or work-outside-the home, our role is still the same, to provide for our families a place of peace and love and to be the ‘Keeper of our homes’. I hope you will stay tuned for the rest of the series. Blessings to you and your family!

  4. ‘housewife’ ‘homemaker’ or any other title…. the truth is whatever we like to call ourselves as wives, moms and individuals the decision to stay at home is equally tough, responsible, glamorous and worthy of admiration as the decision to work and make a financial contribution.

    You are so true that society has degraded the role of ‘women who stay home’ since there is no tangible/financial outcome. In reality, being the ‘keeper of your home’ is the most daunting, satisfying and inspiring experience. Really liked your article and your views on this topic.

  5. Susan, Hurray. I love it that you are doing this and look forward to hearing more. I have been so impowered since the Home Experience in making choices based on the priorities listed in Proverbs 31. You are right in that it isn’t an addition of one more thing to do. Rather it frees you to do less in some ways so that we accomplish more. Love and Hugs, Brenda

  6. Thank you for kind comments! I hope others see the joy that can come from truly focusing more on the home and the true value that is held there! Blessings to you Brenda!

  7. I like how you used the literal translation of Titus 2:5 which shows that it is “keeper at home” not “of the home” which so many have tried to make it, thinking as long as the home is “kept” a woman is free to do as she pleases.
    Another helpful verse maybe Proverbs 7:11, showing one of the only references for a woman who don’t keep the home. God has laid out the role for women and it is to be keepers at home. It is important that we do not lean on our own understanding but in all our ways acknowledge Him.
