"Trust in the Lord with all your heart;
do not depend on your own understanding.
Seek His will in all you do,
and He will show you which path to take."
~~Proverbs 3:5-6~~
I am a wife, a mother, a daughter, a sister, and a friend. Jesus is Lord of my life and I strive daily to draw closer to Him. I love being a homemaker---taking care of my family and home. I enjoy couponing, cleaning, and cooking. I love to get the best deal on everything and find that yard sales and thrift stores are the perfect places for that. I have recently felt lead to write a Bible study and have been working on it in my spare time. I truly enjoy leading women's groups as we all seek to grow closer to the Lord. Grab a cup of coffee and enjoy reading about what happens as I strive do all of this.

The Homekeeper's Journal

This week’s Journal is all about HOME
In my homey kitchen …..
is where I enjoy preparing meals for my family.  I did not know how to do much more than boil water prior to getting married nearly 19 years ago.  Learning to cook has been such a pleasure.  I love being in my kitchen if I am cooking, baking, washing dishes, cleaning, making coffee, or making hot tea.  It is a place of peace, tranquility, and joy
My thoughts on being at home ……
Deciding to stay home was an easy decision for me.  I had always wanted to be a mom and wife.  The thought of somebody else taking care of my home or children, breaks my heart.  I love being here to take care of my home and family.  I truly believe that it is my job.  I always say that my husband makes the money and I do my best to make the most of it.  

A constant habit I have of making my home comfortable is ….
I am in constant "pick up and straighten up" mode.  I am always looking for things that can be straightened, put away, wiped down, picked up, or thrown away.  When I walk through a room, I try to see it from the viewpoint of a visitor.  I want my family to feel like I treat them as being just as important as company....because they are!
If I could change the decor of my home ….
I would start with painting and would enjoy or more contemporary country style than I have now.

What I want my children/spouse/other family to remember about my home is …
The word "welcome" is the word that comes to mind.  I want it to feel warm, loving and welcome.  I want people to feel at ease when they are here.  I want there to be a sense of calmness and joy.
Home … 
is certainly where my heart is!
