I have been challenged many times by Carolyn Mahaney, both in her books and on her blog, about continuing my education as a homemaker. Almost every career calls you to some further education, but many women who stay home don’t continue learning and sharpening skills. I told Bill the other day that I feel like I learn a little of a lot of things all the time, but I am never really pushing myself to the limit in any one area. My friend Becky just did a couple of posts on potty training, and I was really convicted about how unintentional I am about many things like that. I LOVE school, so I finally decided to sit down and map out my MH plan (Masters in Home) for the next few years. I am going to try to take an average of 6 months at a time to really learn about a certain skill that is related to managing my home. The first six months–housekeeping. I am going to challenge myself to learn as much as I can about managing and cleaning my home, including how to incorporate in natural cleaners. My main textbooks are Martha Stewart’s Homekeeping Handbook and a recommendation from my friend Kacie, The Naturally Clean Home (both were gifts from my wonderful guy). I even made myself a reading schedule! I will post on here as I can with info and tips I’m learning.
Any other good resources you would recommend on this topic?
