Homemaking 2019 Reading List

Here are some books that have been recommended to me and I hope to read this year. What are some of your favorite homemaking books?

         A Mother’s Rule of Life by Holly Pierlot 

This book has been recommended to me twice this month. It looks sweet and has a good rating on goodreads the only complaint from the reviews, “too Catholic” – sounds promising.

The Hidden Art of Homemaking by Edith Schaeffer 

This book has been on my reading list for several years. I keep hoping I’ll find it at a thrift store but haven’t had much luck, it’s also not available at our local library so I decided to just order it this year.

  Large Family Logistics by Kim Brenneman 

I still don’t feel like our family is “large” but people keep telling me I’d like this book.

 

 

The Greatest Liberation

When making a speech to women of the liberation movement, Blessed Mother Teresa frankly said, “Every woman is the heart of the family, since no man can never really love in the same way as a woman So that by trying t become somebody else, women lose something, and because of that loss, the world is what it is today. My advice to women is simple :stay home. A woman’s first responsibility is to be the mother, the heart, the only one who can keep the family together. We are liberated only when we live our life to the fullest as a woman. And that is the greatest liberation of all.”
