Becoming a homemaker is a transition. Even if you helped around the house a lot as a teenager, managing your own home is a new level of responsibility. As a society, we treat home management as something that is easy. In fact, it is supposedly so easy that it should come automatically. In reality, that’s not the case for many women. It certainly wasn’t for me!
While homemaking might not be easy or natural, it’s certainly worth it. The woman has the power to set the tone in her home. When I manage my home well, it becomes a haven and place of rest for the whole family. When my home is out of control, I feel stressed. My stress trickles down to the rest of the family and everyone is less relaxed.
About a year ago, there was a Kickstarter campaign to build an online training academy for Christian women to learn homemaking skills. I was one of the initial Kickstarter backers, so I’ve been with this project from the beginning.
My Homemaking Mentor is a collection of 15 courses on topics such as meal planning, cleaning, spiritual disciplines, motherhood, marriage, and modesty. At $99 for lifetime access, it’s actually a really great deal. Most of the online courses I’ve seen have been priced at $30-$40 for a single course. My Homemaking Mentor includes 15 courses from 12 mentors.
There will also be a bonus course that will be taught LIVE in the private Facebook group for My Homemaking Mentor members! The live course is starting April 1st.
One of the best things about My Homemaking Mentor is that you never have to pay for updates. When the academy first launched, there were 10 courses. Since then, five more have been added, but I never had to pay an additional fee for access to the new content. Pay once, enjoy forever.
Additionally, there is a brand new printable companion guide with all of the lesson notes. I can’t wait to download mine!
If you prefer auditory learning, all of the video lessons are also available as an audio download. The courses can be accessed from any device, so you can learn via your computer, tablet, or phone.
My Favorite Courses
- Jolene Engle teaches “A Wife Who Cultivates a Fulfilling Marriage.” The marriage courses in MHM are taught from a complementarian perspective. Contrary to popular belief, submission does not mean being weak. I love how Jolene evidences that in her course. Just from hearing her speak you can tell that she is not a weak person!
- Marci Farrell teaches “Simple Routines to Keep Your Home in Order.” The key to maintaining a home is consistency and habits. The videos show precisely what she does in various rooms to maintain order.
- Jennifer Ross teaches “Encouragement for Weary Moms.” I love how she asks questions to get to the root of your weariness. As the mom of eleven, she’s walked through many seasons of motherhood. I like her perspective on how different things need to be most important in different seasons.
I’m currently approaching my second wedding anniversary and my son’s first birthday. In the last year, I’ve gained so much knowledge and confidence in my homemaking skills. Putting the things I learned from these courses into practice has transformed my home.
Enrollment in My Homemaking Mentor will be closing on April 3, 2017. It will re-open at a higher price in the fall.
