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...

Families Need Stay-At-Home Moms Now More Than Ever

This is a loaded statement and opinion of mine that actually requires far more articles than this one. To get started, I'd like to share the fact that I am a Wife and Homemaker and have experienced firsthand the experience and benefits. In the next couple of days, I will write separate articles for each bullet point and hyperlink them to this article. Being a Stay-At-Home Wife and Mom is what I desired for many years prior to being able to achieve it and because of that, I'd like to delve into the personal transformation that what was necessary for me during the time that I was a single, divorced mother: I had to release myself from the mental, emotional and energetic virus that is radical feminist ideology,I had to heal from certain traumas associated with the past. These traumas...

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,...

Secrets of a (Black) Millenial Homemaker

By https://www.instagram.com/the.pinnacle.housewife/ This will be my little series to talk about what life is like for a black SAW/M in this new era. Anything I talk about in this series can work and be applied to any future homemaker but I can only speak from my life experience. Here we go. In the age of the 50/50 lifestyle which I hate. I think it is important to talk about the other side. No 50/50! It is a beautiful life to live ladies. I don’t pay not ONE bill. I don’t know what the electric bill is. I don’t even know the type of plan we have for internet. I just know when I flip a switch, there is light and when I log on there is the internet. He budgets for a family shopping spree twice a year (which isn’t cheap for a family of 6). The only budget I concern myself with is the g...

Ode to the Stay At Home Mom

It's with gratitude that I take time to beautify myself and environment. Go-slow was a well earned decision after years of working outside the home while raising a family. But first, I needed to choose a man who appreciated a woman basking in her #feminine role as wife and Mother. Go-slow can not be accomplished with a man who values a "do-it-all" stressed out, overworking, overwhelmed woman. I know, in my heart, that a majority of women would consider go-slow as a viable choice if they weren't afraid of social and familial condemnation. The excerpt below from Dr. Laura Schlessinger's book sums up my current mood:"If you decide that the most important thing about your life is your worker-ant role, you’ll likely feel drained a lot of the time and resent the obliga...
