What do you think of when you hear the words home arts? Does canning pickles, crochet patterns, and pantry organization come to mind? These are perfect examples of what was expected of women who worked in the home, these days homemaking includes so much more. Everything from A to Z takes place in our homes and who is there to lead guide and direct…the Homemaker.
The new homemaker does not always look like the traditional homemaker of the past decades. He or she might be caring a briefcase and juggling a cell phone in between sorting laundry, cleaning the toilet, and darning little Sally’s sock. Never the less, the role of today’s homemaker has become a serious form of art and science. He or she is something of an artist in their own right and should be celebrated as an indispensable part of the larger community, and the heart of the family.
