"After Laura and Mary had washed and wiped the dishes, swept the floor, made their bed, and dusted, they settled down with their books. But the house was so cozy and pretty that Laura kept looking up at it."
- Laura Ingalls Wilder
Human Frailty of the Godly Soul
"The life of Luther might suffice to give a thousand instances, and he was by no means of the weaker sort. His great spirit was often in the seventh heaven of exultation, and as frequently on the borders of despair. His very deathbed was not free from tempests, and he sobbed himself into his last sleep like a greatly wearied child."
"As for her, like most women, she had but one ambition. To be a good wife and a good mother, and to be beloved by her husband and children, was all she asked. [She was] a busy, affectionate, cheerful little housewife, whose voice would never be heard in the streets, but whose memory would always live in a few faithful hearts."
"You won't find cleaning advice or the latest ideas for saving money in
this book. What you will find is a collection of over 150 visits from
Mrs. White's parlour during her homemaking breaks.
Each visit is from
her daily life. These include remembrances, ideas, essays or short
daily journals. There are sad times and happy times; sickness and
health; different moods; and dealing with the good and the bad. These
are designed to encourage, inspire and motivate you to keep charm and
romance alive in a humble home."
This is a compilation of posts from the past 3 years, specifically chosen for the Christian homemaker. I would love your help spreading the word.. More books are in the works. Thank you so much for your support, kind comments and continued encouragement!
