Book Review: The Hidden Art of Homemaking

I was a new bride.

We were poor.

A friend gave me this book.  It transformed the way I thought about my home, my kids, and my job as a wife, mother, and homemaker.

Come to a recognition of the fact that it is important for you to be creative!

The key word is creative.  God made us to be like Him.  Glory!  Being a homemaker is an amazing opportunity to practice all the creativeness that you can come up with – for the benefit of your family.

Edith Schaeffer (the author) was married to the well-known theologian and philosopher, Francis Schaeffer.

To whet your appetite, read this excerpt from Chapter 4 on Painting, Sketching, Sculptering:

First of all, be satisfied with the fact that although your art or talent may never be accepted by the world as anything ‘great’, and may never be your career, it can be used to enrich your day by day life: enrich it for you, and for the people with whom you live.  And secondly, come to a recognition of the fact that it is important for you to be creative in this area to the extent of your talent: important for you as a person who is a creative creature.
