Hello dears !
When you hear the word “homemaking”, you might have vintage images on your mind about a woman who cooks good meals…
Or she sews clothes for her family with love…
But if you are like me before my conversion and my spiritual journey, homemaking is the utmost boring activity for any woman on earth.
Well, this article will show that it’s utterly false. And as women, we shouldn’t be afraid to embrace our homemaking duties.
Fun facts about homemaking
Did you know that the word “economics” comes from Greek words which means “home management”? (Sometimes, when I read things about home economics I laugh because homemakers are basically the original economists!)
Anyway, let’s move on…
Before I became a Christian Woman, I believed that homemaking was the most boring and annoying thing in life to be done. As far as I was concerned, I had to flee these chores as soon as I could.
Even if I learnt how to cook, to clean and all, that was it for me. I was a real tomboy and many people thought I couldn’t do anything with my hands, though I learnt how to do all those things.
Everything changed as I became a Christian. I started to read the Bible more often and my perspective changed.
I read Proverbs 31 of course, and I realized that homemaking was a sacred occupation.
Therefore, I decided that I would do everything with God’s help to become a better homemaker.
Since then, everytime I fulfill my homemaking duties, I do them with a cheerful heart and I feel a sense of accomplishment when I’m done.
Multiples talents are required to be a homemaker
Don’t you believe me? Here are some of these talents below:
- sense of organization
- time management
- appreciation of beauty
- development of artistry
- money management
- knowledge of nutrition
- child care
And these are only the skills I could think of… Here are some advantages of homemaking for a woman:
- homemaking increases your sense of responsibilities,
- homemkaing helps you to fight laziness,
- homemaking is an indicator of your spiritual maturity,
- homemaking helps you to develop your nurturing side and to awaken your feminine nature
Nowadays, I don’t find homemaking boring anymore. From a Biblical perspective, I do believe that homemaking should be one of the most important priorities for a woman.
The future of our children and society depends on our skills as homemakers. I know that I am old-fashioned when I say that, but it’s true!
But… I work outside my home! Can I still aspire to be a homemaker?
Actaully, the answer is… Yes!!! If you work outside your home like me , don’t feel guilty. I am not saying that women should be uneducated morons who know nothing.
I am just saying that we should review our priorities. If you are still single or if you have some constraints which force you to work , then go ahead!
Besides, being a homemaker doesn’t mean you can’t work from home! But this will be the topic of subsequent articles.
I really encourage you to reconsider your priorities and to pray God to become the women He wants us to be. Pray God so that he will help us to restore us and to fully embrace our roles as homemakers.
Let’s claim our role as the original economists!
Stay blessed !
