Gracious House Keeping - My New Book

~ Our newest book, brought to you by "The Legacy of Home Press." ~

Here is a description from the back cover:


 ~ A little book of cheer to inspire you in cleaning and house keeping. ~

Children are growing up in families where, it seems, there isn't anyone at home. Yet keeping house is a greatly needed occupation and I believe we just need a little encouragement and inspiration.

In this small book I will describe a basic routine for cleaning the house. Once our cleaning foundation is settled, I will share the most important part of keeping house. This is what the house keeper does with her time. It includes her cheerfulness, the peace she creates, the work she does, her gentle frugality, and the culture she is providing for her loved ones. 

Special Features include:

- KJV Bible Verses to bring comfort and peace.

- Beautiful paintings of home and family life, from the 1800's, by Currier and Ives.


The chapters include:

Part 1 - Encouragement

1. Introduction  

2. The Lived - in House Dilemma

3. The Daily Work

4. The Five Day Homemaking Plan

5. Restful Weekends

6. Manners in the Home

7. Make Home Life Pretty

8. The Work Basket

9. Hand Sewing Projects

10. Charitable Service

11. A Real Old Fashioned Home

 Part 2 - The Work Charts. (This includes both daily and weekly work.)


Throughout the book you will find encouraging Bible verses, and beautiful old paintings (in black and white) to inspire you in your homemaking.

 There is also some encouragement for those who are chronically ill or do not have much energy to do a lot of work. 

I hope this book cheers you along in your work as house keeper.


The book is now available for sale at Amazon, in both paperback and hardcover editions.

"Gracious House Keeping: Advice, Encouragement, and Cleaning Help for the Christian Housewife."

ISBN: 978-1956616187   ( 6 x 9, Paperback, 115 pages.)

ISBN: 978-1956616200    (6 x 9, Hardcover, 115 pages.)

Any help in spreading the word would be very much appreciated.  Also, if you are able to write a review on Amazon, it would be so helpful! Thank you so much!

Good morning Mrs. White, your new book sounds just like what I need for inspiration. This will be a Christmas present for myself. ;-) Since God called my dear husband home, 10 years ago on the 9th of Dec., I have had a really hard time in wanting to care for my home, and in having the energy to do so. I'm 73, will be 74 in March and God still has a plan for my life. Every day is a gift and I want to be a good stewardess. Thank you for being your gentle self, encouraging others to be Godly wives and homemakers. ~ FlowerLady

P.S. I saw the audio clip about Divine Contentment and decided to see if it was in book form on Amazon and it was and I ordered it also. Your book and this one should be here Saturday.

Kim said...

I just ordered the book! Like Lorraine, it will be a Christmas gift to myself 😊! I can't wait to get it!

Hello! I am off to Amazon now! I am so excited!

Linda said...

How exciting !! I will add it to my wish list on Amazon for next year. I need this book !! :)

I agree with everyone else who has commented here that I am excited, and I went and ordered the book and it is a present to my self, to cheer and encourage me in my daily home making duties. It is coming on to summer here in Australia and so today i got the blankets off the beds, and the lighter fabrics in bed linen and cushion covers out. It all looks so lovely and fresh, and it doesn't take much in effort or expense. Even my apron is a summer version! I also just finished reading "Aunt Jane's Hero" in your new publication and it was such a good read. Thank you for all the work you do to place such books in our hands.

P.S. Flower Lady Lorraine, I have the Kindle version of Divine Contentment by Thomas Watson and both my husband, a non Christian, and myself have found it an excellent resource.

My book arrived today! OH MY GOODNESS!!! IT IS WONDERFUL! Reading it, I felt like you were sitting across the table from me, sharing your stories and advice as we sipped tea!

The work charts in the back are worth EVERYTHING. I feel like I've tried every planner or printed list on the internet lol Most are far to complicated for me, but yours are so plain, so simple, so straightforward and to the point. THANK YOU!

Debbie said...

I love your books! I just bought this one and should have it by next week. Thank you for sharing your wisdom! The simplicity and nostalgia of your methods is what endears them to me. I refer back to the others I have purchased, very often.
