The Homemaker's Mentor ~ Review & Two Giveaways!!!

Monday, October 14, 2013

Homemaking is one of the joys of my life.  To be the creator of a happy, welcoming home is one of my goals.  Yet truthfully, there are times when I find myself floundering in the overwhelming lists of jobs & the lack of skills necessary to maintain this home to the standard I would enjoy it to be.  As a homemaker, I earnestly seek encouragement & advice on how to reach my goals without taking time away from my precious family.

I was blessed to be included in the launch team for The Homemaker's Mentor. This is a CD-Rom containing a collection of over 110 pdf lessons by Mrs Martha Greene and Mrs Rebekah Wilson.  These two experienced homemakers  have joined together to provide numerous lessons, recipe sheets & tutorials for the education & encouragement of other ladies who are blessed to also hold this position.  I have found the gentle & sweet manner of these practical & wise ladies has inspired me to make the most of my homemaking & to go that extra step to make our home a special place for my precious family & the visitors we love to welcome here.  

The myriad of topics taught by these ladies means that every reader will learn new skills.  I have numerous areas to improve in & am thoroughly enjoying the lessons.  I take delight in using the content to assist me in making our home a more beautiful, organised place to live.  There is still so much that I have to learn & I am sure this is a subject I will be a student of for life!  I intend to use & reuse this resource throughout the years as the content is truly ageless.

The Lesson topics in The Homemaker's Mentor include:

~ Tutorials on how to clean various areas of your house including the bathroom, master bedroom & kitchen (these are very detailed & not only encourage you to clean, but to make these rooms beautiful & welcoming places for your family)

~Delicious & healthy recipes ( & some not so healthy ;) that will  quickly become family favourites; 

~ Lessons on sewing aprons, quilts & more (as an apron lover, I can't wait to get out my machine & make a matching 'Mommy & Me apron set for Ellie & myself)!

~ Lessons on herbal remedies (such a wealth of information is included as well as step-by-step recipes for different natural medicinals).

~ Craft products for the household (including a scrubbie bath puff, potpouri, an olive oil lamp & so many more)

~ Lessons on Organisation ( & easy printables that assist you in putting them into practice)

~ Advice on how to make our homes the peaceful, joy-filled blessings we desire

~ The sweetest stories that will inspire you to not just take pride in your position, but also take those extra steps to make your house truly become a home!

~ Hospitality

~Unit Studies for children (ages 6 - 10) on various spices

~ And SO MUCH MORE!!! 

(HERE is a full list of The Homemaker's Mentor contents )

Homemaking is a topic near & dear to my heart.  From the moment I was married  & left the home of my childhood, I earnestly sought to make my home a place my family would thrive in & love to come home to.  I wanted our home to be a place that welcomes people of all walks of life.  I desire that those who enter find an oasis of peace, security, love  & comfort beneath our roof.  May our home to be a place of ministry to all who enter in. Within these lessons I have been introduced to ladies with these same priorities. 

I chose to put the lessons onto my ipad & from there was able to read & utilise them easily.  The children & I had so much fun making the Frosted Mocha Cookies to share at our Sunday School Picnic recently.  I have also used 'A Vision for Order' lesson to provide some much needed framework to our hectic days.
Over the next week I hope ( Lord willing) to share with you some of the practical ways I have put these into practice ( including the most delicious recipe pictured above ~ with permission)!
