Overview

Today’s typical lifestyle is marked by busyness, stress, and anxiety. Today’s Christian homemaker too often complains that there’s not enough time to do it all, and they start to drown under the pressure of their overwhelming and never-ending to do lists.

It can be easy to rush through the day in a constant effort to stay on top of everything that must be done. We have the demands of our homes that need attention; our children, who need love, training, and discipling; and, most importantly, we have our husbands, who need our attention, affection, and our help in building homes that glorify the Lord.

With all of our modern conveniences and time savers, you would think we wouldn’t struggle to fit into out day what needs to be done, but we seem to be more pressed for time than ever before. It is so easy to feel overwhelmed when it seems what is demanded of us is more than what we can give. You may feel like you’re drowning in dishes and laundry. Maybe you’re losing the battle with winning your children’s hearts to the Lord, or maybe you’ve given up on keeping up and have fallen behind on maintaining your home or paying your bills. Your marriage may be suffering under all of these demands. Maybe you’re barely keeping your head above water.

What if our problem is not a lack of time?

The Lord has given us ample time to do His work. The struggle we face is in determining kingdom work from all the extra that can fill up our schedules. In our hurried, busy lives as wives and mothers, it can be easy to rush through our days, checking off our to-do lists as we accomplish the tangible. But while much of that is important, it’s the eternal, the intangible, that matters most. This is why we’re here. This is why we get out of bed every morning and go strong until our head hits that pillow at the end of the day. As keepers of our homes, we have a unique opportunity to make a generational impact, both within and outside the walls of our homes.
