The Christian Homemaker's Handbook


Oh, I am excited about this new book for Christian Homemaker's.  The Christian Homemaker's Handbook has some great contributors like Pat Ennnis, Dorothy Kelley Patterson & Mary K. Mohler to name just a few.

"This one-stop reference tool gives you tips and training on everything from meal planning to interior decorating, biblical womanhood to budgeting, so that you can become a holistic homemaker! It features practical teaching from Scripture, instructions for do-it-yourself projects, application questions, helpful resources, a comprehensive index, and more." 
"With nearly 50 years of marriage experience, 30 years of college-level home economics instruction, and a commitment to biblical womanhood, the editors of The Christian Homemaker’s Handbook have compiled the comprehensive manual for today’s woman and her home."

Just a sampling of topics covered:
  • God's Design for Home

  • Home: A Prepared Place
  • The Value of a Child
  • A Life Full of Days: Caring for the Aging

  1. I found you on A Wise Woman link-up.
    I like your blog very much. I don't know any full-time homemakers so it's nice to find like-minded ladies on line. I will be subscribing!
