Here are dedicated homemakers, in 1940, at a country fair. You can see them standing at a table, serving home-baked goods.
In the 40's, families believed in taking the time to pray and thank God for their food and blessings. In this photo, you will see men, women and children gathered to pray - in public, with great respect for God.
May I ask what has happened to our culture today? May I venture to say that if more women had a deep love for home and homemaking, the family-unit and godliness would be more prevalent?
Here you will see a housewife putting up food, she canned, into her homemade pantry. This is in 1942.
A humble home, with humbly furnished rooms seems to be outdated. However, there was less debt, less consumption and more creating. The family worked extremely hard, but they had simpler lives. They had less distractions. More families attended church than they do now. More families stayed together as a strong unit and divorce was rare. If we could only strive to live a more simple, godly life, we would be greatly blessed.
I want you to love home. I want you to love the old paths and the old ways. I want you to keep it alive and pass this legacy on to your children and grandchildren. There is a wonderful way to learn and be encouraged and that is through a precious magazine - The Good Old Days. They are offering a free sample issue for new readers. I hope you will sign up!
