The Homemaker’s Mentor

I just found out two of my favorite and most talented authors, Martha Green and Rebekah Wilson, authors of The Treasury of Homekeeping Skills and The Hope Chest and Grandmother’s Hope Chest books respectively, have a vision to train woman in many useful homemaking skills that you probably weren’t taught by your mother growing up.

Their vision for The Homemaker’s Mentor is to provide you with helpful, illustrated lessons designed to inspire and expand your homemaking skills. As each lesson is learned your homemaking skills increase and are refined and your enjoyment as a home keeper expands. Despite the hustle and bustle of life surrounding you, your home will become a welcome haven for all who enter.

Here is a sample lesson with over 50 uses for old and mismatched socks.

Current lessons include:

How to Grow an Indoor Herb Garden,
Beans, Beans, and MORE Beans,
Sample Dreams! Homemade Pillowcases
Detail Cleaning of the Master Bedroom

I believe that learning new skills from older, like-minded women will bring you a deep and satisfying in enjoyment in your role as homemaker.  Check it out!

If you are ready for an older woman to hold your hand and teach you skills you have always wanted to learn, The Homemaker’s Mentor is for you.

    Hi Ladies!

    I was so happy to come across your website! I find it very informative. I am a 42 year old single Mom and lost my own mother a year ago. I no longer have her to call on a whim when I need help with things sometimes, so finding your website has been a blessing. I look forward to your tips and trick of the trade so I can continue to pass all the good stuff along to my own daughters.

    Blessings,

  • It is so nice to know there are women out there who still want to make a house a home. I LOVE being a homemaker, there are not enough hours in the day to do all of the things I want to do concerning the home. I thought I was the only one (along with my mom) who loves being at home. I treat my status of homemaker very seriously as if it were my job.

    I joined this group just recently and am excited to learn what they have to offer. Someday, I’d LOVE to read those books, too. My hugest aspiration apart from walking more closely and intimately with Christ, is to become a better wife and mother. So, that said, I have a LOT to learn.
    Thanks for posting this :)
    Another great resource for mentoring is this magazine:

    I just LOVE it. Many resources based on Titus 2 and homesteading. Very practical. I hope you have a BLESSED Mother’s Day!

    Being a stay at home mom is a very demanding but rewarding job. For a while I struggled with what kind of career I should have until one night God told me that I was already where He needed me. Since then my relationship with God, my husband and my children have become much stronger. I am always looking for new ways to help my husband save our money and to make our house a home. Without websites like this one it would be impossible. Thanks Marilyn for all you do!

    I just found your website and I keep coming back during my daughter’s naptimes-I love being at home I just lack the basic skills women used to know by my age!! I hope to learn everything I can about building a home and teach my children while they are young. My mom is in awe of what I can do at home already- she wanted to do better also but was quickly single mom of four and her Mom did not teach her as hers did not teach her…this is similar in most of my friends lives also–they learned how to get great grades, impress authority and meet their goals in the workplace–yet we did not know how to fold sheets or make bread. thanks you for the hope.
