Welcome, and thank you for stopping by!  My name is Kate, and I am a Christian homemaker living in a small town with my husband, DangerBear, and my six year old daughter, Chickpea.

Proverbs 14:1 says, "The wise woman builds her house, but with her own hands the foolish one tears hers down."  I have been married for six years, and I often still feel as though I tear down two bricks for every one I cement in place.  As Christian women, we are called to build up our houses by being a helpmeet to our husbands, meeting the needs of our families and households, and obeying the Word of God.

Please join me in my quest to become the wise woman of Proverbs 14:1.

I hope you'll enjoy looking around and that you'll subscribe so you can automatically get updates (the link is on the right, in the sidebar).  I would also welcome comments on my posts and, if you like, you can email me.

Thanks very much, and I look forward to hearing from you!

This blog serves two purposes:

First, I enjoy the accountability it provides.  In my quest to "build up my house" like the wise woman of Proverbs 14:1, I set monthly goals for myself.  By sharing those goals, and my progress, with all of you, I am more motivated to persevere.  I truly enjoy reading your comments, as they always encourage me!  It is wonderful to hear from other women on the same journey, and also from women who've "been there, done that" and are willing to offer their advice and wisdom.

Second, I want to share the things I learn about godly living.  Not because I know so much, but because I get so excited when I find something that works!  There are so many different ways we can build up our house:
  • spending time with the Lord and His Word
  • learning to be a godly wife and mother
  • caring for the home
  • preparing meals
  • handwork, such as knitting, crochet, sewing, etc.
  • caring for ourselves (body and mind)
  • teaching our children
What a huge job we have!  It's so much easier and more enjoyable when we can fellowship with each other (even online) and share our collective knowledge.  I hope you'll leave comments with your own goals and ideas!

Below are some time management forms I had designed for myself at one time or another and wanted to share.  Feel free to use them for yourself.  I would like to ask that:
  • if you want to share any of these with someone else, that you'd refer them to my site.
  • you not remove the footer at the bottom of the documents with my blog name and link.
I'd love to hear your comments and suggestions!  I'll definitely be adding to this list, so you might want to subscribe so you'll know when there's a new one available.
