The Art of Homemaking

The Art of Homemaking

      I love to watch old episodes of “The Brady Bunch” and “Leave it to Beaver.” The happy, content mothers who were all too happy to don a full skirt and heels only to clean her home all day. Now, in all honesty, I think we all know Carol Brady not only did not work, she did not clean! What did she do all day???

      In today’s world ( and real life) we (homemakers) are probably not dressed up during our M-F work week. I know I only dress up for church or other formal occasions. As a matter of fact, while I am at home cleaning I just want to be comfortable. 

      Homemaking is an art, no matter what you are wearing. We take great pride in our work, and our families appreciate it.

      Changes…did you notice?

      Changes…did you notice?

      So…after some researching I discovered my blog name, “A Heart Full”, was already taken not once, but several times over. In all honesty, it was kind of a common name and I should have known better. Although I love to write, I am not very good at naming things. So in the name of simplicity, I am keeping it short, sweet and unique. Welcome to my newly named blog, Raising The Reeps! It is only a name change, and better fitting as far as what I am writing about here. I am also going to begin a vlog!  It will also be called “Raising The Reeps.” YouTube is a great way to help promote an at-home business. As a new Beachbody coach and blogger, I want to spread my wings! I cannot say I am not nervous about it, but without trying I will never know my full potential!

      Holy Week was quite eventful at our home. We were all struck down with a horribly unrelenting virus that still lingers today. I have four sick children at home. Only two were well enough for school today. I was sick on Easter Sunday, and could not function enough to participate in the wonderful activities we had planned. The children still dyed their eggs, but it was sheer willpower that got us through. 




      I sincerely hope your Easter was a glorious one. I am rejoicing in this beautiful new season He has given us. The readings for today especially touched my heart:

      Psalm 105

      Give praise to the Lord,proclaim his name;
          make known among the nations what he has done.
      Sing to him, sing praise to him;
          tell of all his wonderful acts.
      Glory in his holy name;
          let the hearts of those who seek the Lord rejoice.
      Look to the Lord and his strength;

          seek his face always.

      Isn’t this beautiful? Even in sickness and other times of turmoil in my life, there will always be a bible verse that can turn my day around. His strength sustains me, always. 

      I want to thank you, readers, for sticking with me through these changes. Your support means so much to me. What do you think of the name change? Yay or nay?
