"Again let me say, that no wife can over-estimate the influence she wields over her husband, or the measure in which his character, his career and his very destiny are laid in her hands for shaping. The sway which she holds over him is the sway of love—but it is mighty and resistless. If she retains her power, if she holds her place as queen of his life—she can do with him as she will! Even unconsciously to herself, without any thought of her responsibility, she will exert over him an influence which will go far toward making ormarring all his future! If she has no lofty conception of life herself—if she is vain and frivolous—she will only chill his ardor, weaken his resolution and draw him aside from any earnest endeavor. But if she has in her soul noble womanly qualities, if she has true thoughts of life, if she has purpose, strength of character and fidelity to principle—she will be to him an unfailing inspiration toward all that is noble, manly and Christlike!"
~ J.R. Miller, The Christian Family: Homemaking
There are so many wonderful features in the making of a home. This is a place where I would love for you to share your love for anything home-related. Homemaking, homeschooling and homesteading are all a part of the lovely art of home-making!
~~Please link up posts in the spirit of Titus 2 and Proverbs 31 (such as recipes, godly encouragement, DIY's, frugal living, child-raising, medicine making, preparedness, gardening, home decoration, school lessons, sewing, crafts, etc). ~~ You are welcome to share as many posts as you like!
Here are some lovely features from last week's link up:
Chocolate Covered Strawberry Bombs for Hot Cocoa by 3 Winks Design
This looks delicious!
P.S. I personally would use unsweetened cocoa powder in lieu of the Nesquick
for a darker chocolate, less-sugary indulgence :)
Let the Children Play by Rejoicing in Christ Daily
Yes, please do!
Homeschooling: Assembling Portfolios by Country Blossom
We do something similar with our year-round school work and I love the collection of memories!
