Do your children exhaust you? Have you found yourself finishing their chores because it’s, well, easier than getting them to do them? If so, this book will give you new energy, and your household new harmony. This book will help your children develop a good work ethic.In this interview, I speak with Mary Beeke, author of Teach Them to Work and we discuss a very important aspect of child-rearing which is instilling a strong work ethic in them. If this is done well, it will be a blessing to them, their families, and most importantly it will bring glory to the Lord.You can buy Mary's book at Reformation Heritage Books or on Amazon.
What a joy it was to talk with Kathy Reeg, the president of The Elisabeth Elliot foundation. She is a wealth of knowledge and has such a warm, kind spirit. The first time we had a conversation on the phone we spent over an hour and a half talking not just about Elisabeth but she gave such wonderful advice on mothering and raising children in the faith. I hope you enjoy this episode where we discuss Elisabeth’s life as a whole and how helpful she is to women pursuing biblical womanhood.
To kick off season 2 of the Fruitful Homemaker Podcast I interviewed Abigail Dodds. I hope this episode is a blessing to you!Book Summary:In a culture that can belittle womanhood on the one hand—making it irrelevant—and glorify it on the other—making it everything—it’s hard to know what it really means to be a woman. But when we understand womanhood through the lens of Scripture, we see that we need a bigger category for what God has called “woman.”This book breathes fresh air into our womanhood, reminding us what life in Christ—as a woman—looks like. When we see that we are women in all we do, we can be at peace with how God has created us, recognizing womanhood as an essential part of Christ’s mission and work.Books:A(Typical) Woman: Free, Whole, and Called in ChristBread of Life: Savoring the All-Satisfying Goodness of Jesus through the Art of Bread MakingPodcast:Home Fires Podcast
Christina Fox received her Master's in counseling from Palm Beach Atlantic University. She is a blogger, writer, and retreat speaker. She writes for a number of Christian ministries and websites, including Ligonier, The Gospel Coalition, and Revive Our Hearts.In this episode, we discuss her book, Closer Than a Sister, which has been a blessing to me and many women I know. Here is a brief summary:We live in an age where ‘friendships’ are prolific and contact is constant. But are all of these people really our friends? The bond of Christian friendship is different. Built on our unity with Christ, these are real life, flesh and blood relationships – both sacred and sacrificial. Christina Fox offers insight into how we can weave friendships that last through any season and reflect Christ to the world.You can find more about Christina at her website

I am a wife and mother to 3 young children. We are members of a Reformed Church in Arkansas.It has been a great blessing being mentored and built up by older women in the church.
