Mother's Book of Home Economics

My new book was just published today! 

It is designed specifically to encourage the Christian wife and mother at home. 

Here are the details:

Title:  Mother's Book of Home Economics: Remembrances, Letters and Essays from a New England Housewife

Author:  Mrs. Sharon White

Publisher:  The Legacy of Home Press

6" x 9" Paperback, 312 pages.

Description from the Back Cover:


"There are many Home Economics books that will teach you important facts, such as how to get out a stain; how to clean your oven; or how to read food labels. This is all valuable information. We should certainly have those kinds of books in our homes. Nonetheless, did you ever just want to enter someone's home and observe how it all works in daily life? Did you ever want to learn about how a family used to keep house, or how it is working today?

   "Mother's Book of Home Economics" will give you that personal touch of Homemaking. It covers subjects like Marriage, Cleaning, Child Care, Manners, Simple Living, Motherhood, Thrift and Holiness. Here you will find a variety of letters, essays and memories about Home Economics. This was written by a New England Housewife, who has been married for more than 25 years."

There are 121 short chapters, compiled from 4 years of blog writing.

The Index in the back of the book loosely categorizes everything by the following topics:

1. Child Care
2. Cleaning
3. Etiquette
4. Finances
5. Holiness
6. Homemaking
7. Hospitality
8. Kitchen
9. Marriage

Some of the chapter titles include:

1. Chalkboard Prayers
2. How to Teach a 2 - Year old To Clean
3. Mother's Benevolent Society
4. Bossy Wives
5. Saturday Morning Chores
6. How the Old Time Mothers Survived Poverty
7. Home as a Little Christian School
8. Cooking for Mister
9. The Housewife Contract
10. Walking the Gardens with Baby

"The writings are designed to encourage the Christian housewife.  You will feel supported in your decision to stay home and care for your family.  You will also notice a gentle nudging to live the old paths, and find peace there."
