Book Giveaway – Ultimate Thrifty Guide for Christian Housewives


I have one copy available for a giveaway. I am excited to offer this to my readers. Please note: I am the editor and publisher of this book.

“Housewifery Journal” is a 105- page book written by Mrs. Connie Hultquist (Mother of 6 grown children). Her articles have been published in Above Rubies Magazine, Crowned with Silver and Sarah’s Promise. Mrs. Hultquist offers tremendous wisdom for old-fashioned homemakers.

The book is a combination of personal stories and godly advice. Through 77 journal entries, we read about old time mothers, submission, wayward children, gardening, old fashioned kitchens, the danger of feminism and much more. Each journal entry was a “morning visit,” full of moxie and courage, now recorded in this treasured book.

Some of what you’ll find inside:

1. How to be a submissive wife and godly mother.

2. [Quote from page 12] “We seem to be losing our families; and factories are feeding our loved ones.” She tells you how to prepare meals for your family, even when you have very few resources.

3. On page 27, you’ll see how her friend lived frugally out of necessity. She would put ONE chocolate chip on each homemade cookie. Her children were content with that. She could make that bag of chocolate chips last for months.

4. An act of survival on page 34: Her drastic idea which cut down her heating bill by hundreds of dollars.

5. Learn real old fashioned bread making, on page 41.

6. On page 44: how to make an easy apron using material from the Salvation Army.

7. The secret to a long lasting, godly marriage is found on page 47.

Mrs. Hultquist calls herself “Straight up hillbilly.” She knows how to live through depression-era times. Her “underground wisdom” is enlightening and inspiring. Her morning visits are endearing, heartwarming and educational.

Oh my, I have been saving up for this book! I love Connie's writings. I also love your blog and check it daily. Please don't laugh but I am very techno-illiterate. I have no idea how to follow a blog - it took me 5 minutes to figure out how to comment! Anyway, I don't want to miss out so I am going to ask hubby for an early birthday present and go ahead and order it. Lorie

Dear Mrs. White. I am a Hungarian momma of 4 boys 7 and under. We've just started homeschooling with our eldest son, and we quite enjoy it. And I do so your posts. I am thinking of buying one copy of the Housewifery Journal. (But better, to win it: it would be really good for me, :D.) I am just curious, about you sending a parcel to Europe. What would the cost be apprx.?

Keep on the good work. God bless you and your loved ones:
