By the time you read this post, I’ll be in Paris, France with my mom! I’ve scheduled content to be automatically published during my trip but may not respond to comments right away.
Homemakers, by a show of hands, who here has had days they don’t feel like tending to their house? Maybe you work outside the home, and by the time you return, you are too worn out to even wash dishes. Or perhaps you’ve spent the better part of a day shuffling the kids from one activity to the next, and when you get home all you want is a nap. Are you like me, a woman who doesn’t work, yet still has days where she has no motivation to take care of things at home?
Society tells women that homemaking has no place now, and that women should be focused on their careers instead. However, as Christian women, I feel like we NEED to make homemaking a priority! And when we do make an effort to be active keepers of the home, sometimes we may get tired of doing the same tasks over and over. I mean, no matter how much you love your home, sweeping the same floors everyday can get a little repetitive. Not only can the work be boring at times, but it can also be physically and mentally tiring! Often times, the repetitiveness combined with possible boredom makes it hard for us to actually get up and get busy.
Check out my post on A Pinch of Faith for tips to be a motivated homemaker, no matter what keeps you from working. I (and my host, Amanda, love to hear from you, so let us know your thoughts in the comments!
