Hi! My name is Krista and I can’t wait to start this journey of homemaking with you!
I am a wife, mommy, homemaker and Christ-follower. My passions are family, cooking, organizing, researching and movie nights!
About the blog…
This blogging journey began in October of 2016, although I began researching it MONTHS before that (did I mention that I LOVE to research?).
Since becoming a wife and mommy I have benefited sooo much from reading blogs of women who have been where I am and have wisdom to share. I decided that it was my turn!
It’s a given that in this new season of life, I am learning things EVERY day (often the hard way) and there are so many things I wish someone had told me.
So if you are a wife, mommy or thinking about staying at home, there will be something on here for YOU! I am by no means perfect, nor do I have all the answers; but if you join me in my pursuit of homemaking I promise to share everything I’ve learned, tried and succeeded at! And maybe some of the oopsies that came in between… 🙂
Becoming a homemaker is truly a mindset shift. It isn’t just a job or list of chores/rules; it is a matter of the heart. I’ve desired to be a stay-at-home mommy my entire life but there were still many surprising mindset changes that had to happen when the rubber hit the road.
My mission through my blog is to show women everywhere the possibility and joy of being a homemaker. And showing you how to be the best homemaker you can possibly be – as I learn right along with you, too!
So, as I started this blog, I decided to write my first few posts with the goal of setting the groundwork for who I am and what I hope to share:
The most important message I want to share is how and where I find ALL my motivation! Look here.
For full-time working moms or if you are already staying at home; EVERYONE has questions, doubts and concerns at the beginning…check out this post.
On the down days when you feel alone, overwhelmed or discouraged; read this to learn how I find and keep true joy.
If you are staying at home with your little ones, it is most likely because you have a sweet husband, like mine, who is willing to do whatever if takes to take care of his family! Check out these two posts to see how to show him how much he is appreciated: link and link.
The biggest thing to remember as you go through the ups and downs of motherhood is that there is nothing more valuable then spending your time raising arrows that will one day be shot out and change the world! Check out this post for more on that.
And finally, the reason I named this blog The PURSUIT of Homemaking is because we all need to remember that this is a process, a journey filled with learning and growth! It is our job to not be content with the status quo, to always pursue to be better at the job God has given us…arguably the most important job on earth!
Part of the joy of this journey is sharing and growing with others! I know you may have learned many things the hard way, too, and I would love to hear from YOU! Comment on my posts, follow me on Pinterest, like my Facebook page, or shoot me an email at [email protected]!
I would also be honored if you would join my email list (located in the right-hand side bar) so that I can send you the updates as they are posted twice a week!
A little bit about Krista…
I had spent my 24 years prior to marriage saving my heart for that prince who would sweep me off my feet! I prayed daily for a strong man of God and, although my life was full, I yearned for the day I could begin the “wife and mommy” season of my life.
Just at a time I least expected it, God lead me in a direction I never thought I would go. In January of 2014 I joined eHarmony, excited but nervous to see what would happen next.
Three short days later, I met my perfect match: a tall, dark, handsome stud named Josh. His dashing good looks made my heart go pitter-patter, but what was most exciting to me was his strong walk with the Lord and the fact that he had saved his heart (♥just for me♥) for 28 years!
Since that day, our lives have been a beautiful whirlwind!
God has blessed us and we are so thankful!
She watches over the affairs of her household and does not eat the bread of idleness. Her children arise and call her blessed; her husband also, and he praises her. ~ Proverbs 31:27-28
