Welcome to The Homemaker’s Cottage, the place where Biblical homemaking and real-life collide.
With so many spaces on the internet to learn about homemaking, and be slightly crushed by the ever demanding and weighty expectations of the world, The Homemaker’s Cottage is a dedicated space for rest, recovery and resources for real-life homemakers.
Hey there, I’m Amanda Elizabeth and I know exactly how you feel.
I am a homemaker myself and have constantly felt the pressure of Patty Pinterests and Holly Homemakers who constantly have it all together. I understand that life isn’t always pretty and pink but that as homemakers we have some of the hardest jobs around.
So I created The Homemaker’s Cottage as a place of refuge and learning for other homemakers like yourself who are sick of keeping up appearances and are ready to really serve the Lord through homemaking.
I, myself, am definitely not a Patty Pinterest or a Holly Homemaker. I am a divorced, full-time homemaker, with a full-time job and a full heart for Jesus. I live in on a horse ranch in Vermont, drive a big ole truck, and wear boots and say y’all a lot, but I love every moment of it.
My life may not be in the place I thought it would be years ago but I’ve learned that God uses all things for His glory, and so here I am; with a full heart and open arms to sisters in Christ like you who are maybe hurting and ready to serve the Lord.
