About Me

 

Hi, my name is Beth.   A few years ago, I was really convicted about the amount of time I put into work outside the home–I was a teacher–and how little time I spent actually making a home for my family.  We were blessed to have enough money to live off of my husband’s salary alone, so I quit my job and stayed at home as a homemaker.  At first, this was difficult, because our society tries to devalue the role of a housewife.  But, my friends and I started a group called “Delighted Housewives.”  We’ve met weekly for a couple of years now, and I have learned so much about the role of housewife from more mature women in our church. 

This past year, I added a new title to my name–“Momma.”  We were blessed with the adoption of our beautiful daughter, Isabella, who was born on May 3, 2007.  Since then, I have been trying to master this role, and learn how to be a godly mother.  I want to be a godly example to my daughter, and to my future children, and I believe that includes all areas of life–finances, nutrition, etc.  If you have read my philosophy page, then you understand where I am coming from.

Update:  in November 2008, my husband and I welcomed 3 new children into our family–Liliana, Micah, and Malachi–through adoption.  Our family dynamic has changed considerably, and I have gained much insight on areas of stewardship such as time management and home management.  It’s been a crazy past few months, but I wouldn’t trade it for anything.  I love being a momma of 4!

So, that’s me in a nutshell–Christian, woman, wife, homemaker, homeschooling stay at home mom.  Enjoy the website!

    For those of you wanting to know more about our Delighted Housewives group…

    I have several like-minded friends. We all quit our jobs and became housewives about the same time, so we thought it would be encouraging to start a group to encourage each other and build each other up in homemaking skills. At first we met in each other’s houses and taught each other crafts/recipes/skills. Then we ran out of ideas to share, so we asked older women in our church and community to come teach us about different aspects of being a wife and mother. And now, a wonderful and very wise woman from our church has taken us under her wing. We meet at her house each week, and she teaches us all kinds of things–quilting, canning, gardening, etc. But she also has a heart for mentoring us spiritually. So, the group has evolved a lot since we started it a couple of years ago. But it is so encouraging to be around people who encourage you to fulfill your role as a godly wife and mother, since our society constantly bombards us with the totally opposite message.

    Hello Beth,
    I am a reporter with The Associated Press writing a story about consumers’ reactions to E10. I read your very interesting post about ethanol and am wondering if you would be willing to speak to me on the phone. If so, could you send me an e-mail at this address? Thanks for your consideration.
