The Joy of Cooking

By @ahomefortheholidays I simply adore experiencing other women's homemaking through their words. So much heart and intention goes into this very necessary role of homemaker.I'm a natural homebody, so being home during this time isn't a big change. Since me and little man can't go to library story time, the thrift stores, or general appointments I've been filling up the time with flexing my cooking muscles. As a homemaker my favorite duty is cooking/baking. There's something about chopping, grating, sauteing, stirring, kneading, seasonin, frying that makes me feel at peace. I know for other housewives it's being crafty, gardening, or cleaning. I love trying new recipes(like the apple carrot spiced muffins I made. They were delicious and little man approved😊) and trying to copy cat ...

A Free Black Wife

By @the.pinnacle.housewife I love being able to be home with my husband and babies. I love being able to devote my time fully to the caring of my home. I love that I'm married to a dominant, masculine man who only wants the best for his family. I love that he puts me in a position to be able to birth our babies at home, in peace, in serenity. I love the feeling I get when I would go grocery or home shopping in the mornings on weekdays and have the store to myself (except for the senior ladies and their husbands). I love that I escaped the matrix of working for the man, and instead have the pleasure of working WITH my man and get the love as well. I love that when I desire a family getaway I get it. I love that I have total control on what I do, how I do it, and when I ...

Forever Grateful to My Husband

Cheers!! There is so much to unpack in this beautiful share below! A well watered woman facilitates the presence of beauty, peace and prosperity for her family.  By @juanita.flowe " I never found the term stay-at-home mom fitting because I don't stay-at-home all day. I love exploring places (pre-Covid) and traveling with my family. Our home is our base, however we use the riches of this whole planet to learn, grow and contribute. I have had a career in the past, but for me, once I had children, it was difficult to balance and I did not feel as if I was fulfilling my purpose. I am much more feminine now And all of those characteristics are blossoming in me and I am much more at peace. I Am forever grateful to my husband for seeing that this lifestyle Is a blessing for our family and s...

Robert Smith on Mrs. Brown, a Stay-at-Home Wife

By Robert Smith That policy of bussing only lasted through my fifth-grade year, when intense protests and political pressure brought an end to forced bussing. But those five years drastically changed the trajectory of my life. The teachers at Carson were extraordinary. They embraced me and challenged me to think critically and start to move toward my full potential. I, in turn, came to realize at a young age that the white kids and the black kids, the Jewish kids and the one Asian kid were all pretty much the same. And it wasn’t just the school itself – it was my community back home that embraced and supported our opportunity. Since most of the parents in my neighborhood worked, a whole bunch of us walked to Mrs. Brown’s house after school and stayed there until our parents ret...

The Privilege of Homemaking

By @afemininefascinatingwifeI used to jokingly refer to myself as a "Residential Services Coordinator" But I am now content with the title "Homemaker". There is no other profession that is irreplaceable. A homemaker in packs for immediate family and the generations that follow, along with her community in ways that are impossible to measure. I'm so grateful to have this privilege!"I was touched in a measurable ways by this beautiful woman's share on one of my posts. Although I would enjoy expounding on many of the fruitful concepts she touched on, at this moment, I would like to highlight One of the ways in which are blessed role impacts the community.We raise our children in the manner that we know to be true and as we do so, they inevitably emerge into and interact with in communities...

Stay – At- Home Calculator

Here at LeahLoveOnline.com, I advocate mothers being Stay-at-home-moms for the betterment and stabilization of children. I stumbled across an interesting calculator that can be of great assistance when thinking about the family budget, current expenses and what it would look like if only one parent worked. What I like about this calculator is that in pulling together the information to plug in our costs, expenditures and income, we become more aware of what's happening in the world of our finances. Click this link to access the calculator on Parents website. Good Luck!

Operation June Cleaver

On a recent chilly Sunday women started disappearing from ads, magazine covers, billboards and posters directing readers to Not-There.org. Part of a powerful ad campaign to raise awareness of gender inequality, it was a graphic reminder to women “we’re not there yet.” It’s a déjà vu for the real housewives of the cold war. 70 years ago images of working women suddenly disappeared from the media and it took them over 30 years to return. During WWII women might have thought that they were finally there…until they weren’t. Women went from serving the country to serving hubby a beer. L) Vintage ad Canada Drive 1944 (R) Vintage Schlitz Ad 1953 One day, dedicated working women were glorified, proudly featured in articles and advertisements; the next they vanished,...

How the role of being a mom has changed throughout history

Article by Stacey HutsonUpdated May 9, 2018 The role of a mom is undoubtedly an important one. As a first-time mom-to-be, I have developed a new habit that is taking over my coffee table and racking up my Amazon account long before childbirth even happens. I have become a motherhood book hoarder. Up until now, most of my books have been on the joys (and pains) of pregnancy. But as the big day gets closer, I've started to pay more attention to what I need to do after baby arrives to be the best mother I can be. Of course, "best mother" is a subjective measure. And its definition has changed greatly over the years (as has our understanding of most things). Book searching, in fact, is a great way to see that change. It doesn't tell the whole story but, speaking from experience, a sca...

Hurried Woman Syndrome

HURRIED WOMAN SYNDROME!!!I once lived the excerpt below but made a firm decision that my next and last marriage would afford me the opportunity to be a present mom, a #SAHM. I would love for all women to slow down and actually experience life and #motherhood from a less stressful and burned out perspective. It all begins with an acknowledgment and a decision to live differently. The "how" will come. Trust."Ms. Hughes and millions of other women have made the choice to give up their all-consuming careers. Why?Largely because the feminist battle cry of “having it all” resulted in lots of stress over a myriad of competing demands for time, guilt for the virtual neglect of children, and longing for more home-and-hearth time.In fact, there is even a new syndrome ascribed to working mothers c...
