Homemaking with Christ at the Center

It can be hard, living in society today that promotes the thought that, “women need to have a career to be successful or women need to have a certain degree to be worth something.” I know not everyone feels that society says that, but I do. It makes it hard and sometimes disappointing when you have the desire to be a homemaker. Yet everything around you says you shouldn’t. I just remind you, that we shouldn’t be looking to the world for our identity. If we looked at the world to fill us, it would be like filling a black hole, never ending and never enough. We would never truly feel satisfied. 

However, I’ve learned that if we turn our focus and attention to what God says about us and who we are in him, we find fulfillment. 

I’ve been blessed to be a homemaker for the last 8-years. It’s been an absolute blessing and humbling experience! There are hard days and seasons, but with any task or job there are those moments. I’ve learned your mindset matters and what you allow to fill you it important.

How to Apply Those Things to Your Daily Life

When looking and studying different biblical attributes its important check your heart posture and allow the Holy Spirit to guide you. You don’t want to be walking these thing out as if you’re checking items off a list. 

You want to do them because it’s how we love, care, value and support one another. After all Yeshua/Jesus did say, “You are to love Adonai your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength. This is the greatest and most important commandment. And a second is similar to it, You are to love your neighbor as yourself. All of the Torah and the Prophets are dependent on these two commandments.” – Matthew 22:34-40

Create a Routine

From my experience. Having a routine can greatly help your life by reducing stress, improving productivity, and boosting happiness. Creating a schedule that prioritizes daily activities and includes both work and leisure time can give structure and predictability. To establish a routine, make a list of tasks and prioritize them. The key is sticking to the schedule as much as possible, and with patience and dedication, it will become a natural part of daily life.

“Do it all so as to bring glory to God.”
1 Corinthians 10:31

Meal Plan

Meal planning is a fantastic way to organize your day-to-day life and ensure that you are cooking healthy, delicious meals for yourself and your family. With a little bit of effort, you can create a meal plan that will save you both time and money, while also helping you be healthier.

Each week Dylan and I try to sit down and come up with the weekly meal plan. When we shop for groceries, it’s typically based on the meals that we plan.

Don’t Forget about YOU

In my 8-years of being a homemaker there are a couple of things that I just want to remind you. 

1) Give yourself grace! 
2) Be sure you’re setting time aside for YOU! Self-care is SO important!! 
3) Your home doesn’t need to look perfect!! It needs to be a place that brings you comfort!
4) Remember why you’ve chosen this path! 
5) Know that it’s okay to take a day off!
6) Keep your eye on the blessings!

Find Time to REST

Rest is essential for our well-being. It’s not a sign of laziness, but rather necessary for our health. There are many types of rest: physical, mental, and social. We need to prioritize rest in our daily lives to recharge and avoid negative effects such as fatigue and stress. 

There was a time where I didn’t really find mental rest and there are days that I still struggle with that. Not finding mental rest is exhausting and draining. It’s an easy way for anxiety to creep in. 

For me my rest comes from Yahweh/God. Sure, I seek him each and every day through prayer and reading the bible. Friday is my weekly highlight because it means sabbath is coming. Our family stands strong in our faith. It looks different than most and that’s okay with us because we know where we are in our relationship with Yahweh/God.   

Our family keeps Saturday sabbath. Genesis tells us that the days were created “evening and morning” so for us sabbath begins in the evening and goes into the following day. Friday night begins our day of sabbath rest. We have dinner together, do bible studies and lessons with our kids. We relax together and allow Yahweh/God to be our focus. 

“I am Adonai your God; live by my laws, observe my rulings, and obey them, and keep my shabbats holy; and they will be a sign between me and you, so that you will know that I am Adonai your God.”Ezekiel 20:19-20

If you’re wanting to become a homemaker set your goals and take one day at a time. Don’t try and do all the things at once. If you’re already a homemaker, you’re doing a fantastic job! You’ll look back on these years and smile, cherishing the memories with your children. I pray blessings over you!
