I grew up in a time when the term “homemaker” carried a negative connotation of a mother who did nothing but sit at home all day. Since growing up and adopting the term for myself, I have learned that a homemaker is so much more than someone who just stays home. It truly is a noble vocation with a bad rep. I want to introduce you to modern homemaking and show you why this profession is just as worthy as any other.
What is modern homemaking?
I have noticed a trend among millennial women like myself. So many of us are craving simpler lives. We are desperate to learn skills that are grandparents knew, but were never passed down to us. Many of us don’t know how to cook or clean our homes. We end up completely overwhelmed by our kids, our homes, and our work lives. The balance feels impossible.
What if we just stop the madness? What if we get back to our roots and pull our children in closer and make our homes an inviting, peaceful sanctuary from the rest of the world?
Modern homemaking allows 21st century women to regain those long lost skills while still adapting to the modern world. Maybe we use our skills to work from home so we can keep up with the housework. Maybe we learn to delegate household tasks to all of the members of our family so that all of the work doesn’t fall on our shoulders. That is what modern homemaking is. It’s taking control of our homes and our lives so they can run smoothly. It’s making sure our homes are clean and comfortable, the clothes are washed, and there’s food on the table.
