A Day in The Life of A Brand New Stay At Home Mama

A Day in the Life of Diana- A Brand New Stay-at-Home Mama at Keeperofthehome.org.png

By Diana, Contributing Writer Hi! I’m Diana from My Humble Kitchen. I’m a brand new, full-time, stay-at-home mama. I’m just smitten to be able to write that, and I am looking forward to the day when I am able to shake someone’s hand and confidently tell them that my full-time career is home educating my children and serving my family. It was a long road traveled to get here. My husband and I worked on smashing our debt, living simply and, through it all, finding joy […]

A Day in the Life of a Pilot’s Wife (With Three Kids Under Five)

A Day in the Life of Beth

By Beth, Contributing Writer It’s a typical Wednesday night, and I’m about to record for you a typical day in my house. Kidding! Silly readers – there’s no such thing as typical when you’re married to a pilot, have 3 kids (sometimes 4), work part-time from home, write a blog, and are just waking up from five years of massive sleep deprivation. Oy vey. Friends – this “day-in-the-life” thing is… shall we say… a huge challenge for me. I swing wildly between feeling like supermom […]

Day in the Life: Homeschool Mom Recovering from Illness

day of rest for a weary mom

By Stacy, Contributing Writer Earlier this year I hit bottom. By bottom,  I mean, complete burn out and exhaustion. The breaking point was finding myself in bed for ten days with shingles. Since then I have been making a concerted effort to have more margin in my life. A lot more. It is important for my physical, spiritual and mental well being. There are still many busy days, but fewer of them. I’ve stepped away from a number of commitments and given myself permission say […]

Day in the Life: Rachel (Waiting for God’s Plan)

Waiting for God's Plan- Keeper of the Home

Written by Rachel, Contributing Writer I remember last year I shared my day with you; it was much different than a day of this year. I was very busy, and–not to say I am not now–it was just a different kind of busy. Last year I told you that “I went from being a stay-at-home mom to a working mom and was then a part-time working mom with the intentions of being a stay-at-home mom once again” and guess what??? With much patience, prayer and waiting, God […]

Let’s Keep It Real This Year

let's keep it real

Guest Post by Jessica of Life as Mom Admit it: You had good intentions back in January or at the start of summer. You were going to take the world, your homeschool, your housework by storm. You were going to get things in order, rock the sandbox, and, otherwise, be the best mom you could imagine. Unfortunately, not all those good intentions have come to fruition. I know that’s the case for me. As a homeschooling, work-at-home mom, I tend to be a big dreamer. […]

Tools for Peaceful Parenting Without Fear

Tools for Peaceful Parenting

By Michele, Contributing Writer From Day 1, fear can be a huge temptation in parenting, although the specific fears may change from season to season. I continually try to remind myself that my children belong to God, and they are in His hands. He created them and placed them into our family for a reason. Meanwhile, God continues to mold me, instill a greater foundation of faith, and refine my own character, too, through this journey of parenting. As I seek to train up my […]

Is It Wrong for Moms to Work?

Is it wrong for moms to work?- Keeper of the Home

This summer we are taking some time to discuss some current issues that are on our minds–issues that we do not know how to answer. So far, we have explored the likes of birth control, thyroid problems, and wealth accumulation among Christians. We are relying on you, the Keeper of the Home readers, to weigh in as we wrestle with these often complex subjects. By Erin Odom, Contributing Writer Today I’m addressing what is often another very heated debate: Is it wrong for moms to work? […]
