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."
