Our ultimate goal is to simply encourage you to be a Godly Woman. A Woman by His design.
“Favour is deceitful, and beauty is vain: but a woman that feareth the LORD, she shall be praised.” Proverbs 31:30

HOW THIS BLOG WAS STARTED
I (Katherine) am a wife and stay at home mama of three boys. I personally know the struggles of parenting while trying to maintain my house and marriage. There have been many times I wished Godly women would write about how they do it all, even if they are still figuring it out themselves. In my experience, the best advice comes from someone who has just left the spiritual battlefield we are entering. It is still fresh in their mind and the insights are invaluable.
After trying to find online resources for women based on God’s word, I realized something. There is SO much vain, useless, and detrimental information marketed and sold to women online. The majority of it sending the message that our role in our homes isn’t important and that satisfaction comes from work and acquiring things. It tells us we need the newest, hottest, and trendiest items. More than that, it is hard to find real answers based on truth to help us through these situations.
In 2014 after seeing a great need for a Christian lifestyle blog written by Godly women, I decided to create the blog I had been looking for. I have a sincere passion to inspire women to embrace their God-given role in their homes. Homemaking and womanhood is NOT dead, but the idea of it is considered “old school”. God’s desire for us as women is to serve him through the ministry of our church and home. Society is only as strong as the homes in which individuals come from. So my prayer is that we, as Christian women can stand up for this belief. So we can give a voice to those that have been told: “womanhood and homemaking is not important”.
In 2018 we brought on 2 talented contributors (meet them here) to write for the site. Each of these women have different experiences and diverse backgrounds. Our collective goal is to prayerfully work to create a resource site for the next generation of women. Our belief is that as women we can learn from each other, exchange ideas and gain wisdom. We all have something to teach and share.

My husband Joshua and I have been married for 5 years and have 3 boys, Harland, Ephrome and Ambrose. It’s pretty crazy around our house with 3 kids under 4 years. Together we bought our first home in April of 2015 and reside in the extremely sunny city of Phoenix.
I love the Lord. I’m very thankful that He died on the cross for me. I’m grateful that I can easily come to Him anytime through prayer and that I can freely read my bible and understand His purpose for me in this world.
I truly enjoy going to church and my favorite part is our song service and hearing my church family sing praises to God together. My husband is the youth pastor at our church and we both enjoy working with the teens in our Sunday School Class and helping them grow spiritually.
Since 2013 I have been a stay at home mom and have enjoyed managing our home and raising our boys. I adore my husband and believe God brought us together because I truly couldn’t have picked a better spouse for myself.
Some facts about me: I hate laundry, mayo, teething toddlers, Falafel (yuck) and changing diapers. I LOVE making lists, baking cookies, sewing my own clothes, painting ugly furniture and treasure hunting at my local thrift store. My favorite food is a toss up between Pad Thai and Hot Cheetos (if those count as food). I tend to listen to loud Italian music from the 40’s while I cook dinner. I try to sing along even though I don’t speak the language.
