What all does Homemaking include?

When you think of homemaking what all come to mind? Probably the usual like cooking and cleaning what what about other areas? What about decorating and nutrition? While surfing I came across an article by the lovely Carolyn Mahaney about the various aspects of homemaking.

"But the truth is that homemaking involves so much more than just cleaning a house. The commands in Scripture to love, follow, and help a husband; to raise children for the glory of God; and to manage a home encompass a vast responsibility. Homemaking requires an extremely diverse array of skills—everything from management abilities, to knowledge of health and nutrition, to interior decorating capabilities, to childhood development expertise. If you are to become an effective homemaker, then you must study these subjects and many more."

Enjoy! Let me know what you think about this!

  1. I've often been called an old soul, and thinking about homemaking and the many aspects involved makes me excited! I love the summer time, when I get to focus on being a homemaker. I plan out everything from laundry, to quilting, to cleaning and gardening. It is great to know that God put this desire to be a good homemaker in my heart and that even when I'm tired, he will give me the strength I need to provide for my family.

  2. I also find that the summer is a good time to get a handle on a lot of things in the home. I normally have lots of more time to try new recipes and organize a lot of stuff.
