Hooray! We have arrived to the FINAL post of the Book Club. If you missed a week – no worries – this Wednesday I will post all the links to the archived posts from the book club, so you have easy access to it.
So let’s finish strong friends!
First up – the final video. In this video I discuss two things – 1.) I have received emails telling me what is missing from my book – so in this video I answer one of these issues (there are more that maybe I’ll consider writing on later) and 2.) I discuss the “Ultimate Homemaker”.

One of the biggest challenges of writing and blogging is being “real”. While I can’t hang out all the ugly of my family because that would disrespect them –I try to be transparent with my personal struggles. But even with those attempts, sometimes I fall short and I leave an impression that I have it all together…and I don’t!
I have written on the blog before that I believe this writing thing is my Ephesians 2:10.
Ephesians 2:10 says: “For we are God’s workmanship created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do.”
Blogging is the good work God created and prepared in advance for me to do. It does NOT mean I have it all together – it just means I’m a follower of Jesus who loves people and who likes communicating with words (lots of them).
Another struggle I have is giving the wrong impression. For example – some people think I want everyone to live in a box and be just like me. No – a thousand time NOOOOOOO! You do not have to strive to be a homeschooling, stay-at-home mom to be Godly. I recognize that we all have different puzzles and different hands that have been dealt to us.
I love it when I run into readers around town. I am always so blessed when a working mom tells me she reads my blog. I am blessed because this world has created “mommy wars” and says we should have tension over this. But you have loved me and called me friend. Thank you!!!
Here are two quotes from Chapter 19 that sum up my thoughts on this:
(image credit: Biblical Homemaking)
“The biblical principles in this book should be the same for all of us, but how we apply them will look different in every home. We must be careful that we are not followers of everyone online but rather followers of Christ.” ~pg.196
Chapter 20 is all about the Proverbs 31 woman. I love her because she is SO inspiring! I want her discipline, diligence and eagerness to work hard!

We’ve come to the close of this book.
What is one major take-away you have learned?
May God bless you as you serve your family and as you continue to walk with the King!
