What does homemaking and faith have in common? The answer is Jesus.
Jesus is the Author and Perfector of my faith, and as a Christ-follower, I am striving to make my home a place where I can display Jesus and his love in a million different ways.

If you live somewhere, then you are a homemaker! Maybe you never knew that about yourself. All of us have varying degrees of responsibility, based on the season in life that we are currently in.
