Do you ever feel like you could use some encouragement and practical advice when it comes to homemaking?
I certainly do!
In fact, as a newly wed, I longed for some instruction and guidance. How do I clean my home? How often should I change the sheets? What are the healthiest foods to feed my family? How can I reach out to others when I am so busy at home? How can I show my husband I love him?
The questions were endless.
Often times, they still are.
Today The Heart of Simplicity: Foundations for Christian Homemaking ebook launches. I wish I had it when I was a new bride.
This book brings together 13 different writers (who happen to be some of my favorite bloggers), all believers in Christ, sharing their hearts with other Christian homemakers.
You may have heard of many of the authors. Besides me, there is: Stephanie Langford, Kelly Crawford, Natalie Klewja, Ann Dunagan, June Fuentes, Courtney Dunkin, Jennifer Ross, Heidi St. John, Jenny Ervin, Richelle McFarlin, Laura Coppinger and Marci Ferrell.
Our goal is to share simple, practical ways to live out your calling as a homemaker, to keep your focus on what is truly important, and to do it with grace.

Here is what our editor had to say about the ebook:
“I don’t think I’ve ever cried while editing until I edited this book. Encouraging, inspiring, convicting…a must-read for every wife and mother! I was so, so blessed while editing. It’s like the Lord put it in my lap because He knew I needed the message. ”
-Erin Odom, editor and blogger, The Humbled Homemaker
