Homemaking 101 Video (a Review)
Being a devoted homemaker and blogger, I have been blessed to review a wonderful homemaking video to share with you about! This video is Homemaking 101, and features Jennifer Ross and her family. Jennifer blogs at Renewing Housewives, where she provides encouragement and inspiration for Christian homemakers.
Now, though my dear mother was a stay at home for much of my life and even had a degree in Home Ec, I was not taught any homemaking skills, nor the importance of them! For a long time I have thought how helpful an instructional video like this would be, and thankfully the Rosses have made one.
Jennifer welcomes us into her home and teaches us basic skills such as cooking and cleaning, but also much, much more. She gives excellent tips and instruction in all the aspects of homemaking (money- and time-saving tips, child-training, meal planning, scheduling and routines, decorating, etc.), and all in such an inspiring and encouraging way. I so much appreciate Jennifer's kind and gentle manner, and she is an inspiration to me. Scripture is presented throughout this lovely video, and there are even questions and answers with an older Titus 2 woman. An especially encouraging aspect of this video is that the role of homemaker is upheld as the occupation approved of and given by the Lord for Christian women.
I have five amazing daughters and we love to put this video in and watch it while we fold laundry. It has been helpful to all of us to learn new homemaking skills, but perhaps even more important at times, to be encouraged in our roles as keepers at home, when we are so often discouraged by the people around us who don't see the importance of this God-given occupation. It is good for them to see not only me as an example of a homemaker, but to see that other women joyfully do this as well!
If you are a homemaker, I have no doubt that you will find this video encouraging and useful, especially if you have daughters in your household. And there is more good news! Jennifer has announced that there will be another video in the Homemaking 101 series.
