Practical Homemaking Skills I Wish I Had Known...

I am not blaming my lack of knowledge on my child hood or on my parents but it would have helped greatly to have been taught few things before I set out on my own. I got married when I was 18 years old. At the time I felt as if I were ready to tackle the world but looking back now I see that I was nothing more than a young, immature child that had no idea of how to really make it in this world. I am sure there were times when my mother may have attempted to teach me some sort of homemaking skill but it wasn't enough for me to catch on to. It is quite possible that she was met with a teenager who thought she already knew it all and didn't need to be taught but either way I was ill prepared to be a wife, mother and homemaker. Homemaking has to be taught. It is not a job that just comes naturally. Would you like to know about the skills I Wish I had known?  Head on over to the other Jennifer's blog A Heart For THE Home where I am contributing today to find out what they are.   


  1. Hi Jen,
    Just wanted to let you know that I've nominated your blog for a Liebster Award!! Here's the post and have fun!!

  2. Looking back after almost 30 years of marriage, there was much I had to learn.God was so faithful. Every time my husband and I needed information, wisdom, or skills, God always placed us somewhere where we could learn the information. From how to make homemade pie crust to how to parent my children, God sent godly mentors my way. I'm so thankful!

  3. I'm going to read your post, but wow...both Jennifer's and blogging at A heart for MY home and A heart for THE home? Small world! lol
