The Sessions & Speakers

The Ministry of Homemaking

Do you need some help in your homemaking? What does it mean to glorify God from within your home? In this first session, we are going to cover what it means to have a ministry of homemaking. With all the different things we have to juggle day in and day out, it can be really hard to know what we need to set as priorities within our days. We don’t want to look back in 30 years and regret the way we’ve spent our time. To kick off the conference, join Jami as she dives in deep to discover what it means to view our homemaking as a ministry and how this can affect our homes, our families, and our lives – all for God’s glory!

Recovering Biblical Homemaking

The position of a wife, mother, and homemaking is not one that is treasured in our culture. In this session, Marci takes a look at Scripture to discover what it really means to be Christian wives, mothers, and homemakers. How can we rediscover the joy and calling of a Biblical homemaker? What does Titus 2 mean when it calls us to be “keepers of our homes?” Is there a greater purpose in mopping our floors and washing dishes? Join Marci as she takes a journey to find out.

Is it even possible to be a homemaker and work from home?

Homemaking – The Juggling Act

As homemakers – we juggle SO much. From cooking, to cleaning, to raising kids, to nurturing a marriage and more! It’s so easy to get overwhelmed and feel like we are constantly playing catch up. Join Jennifer in this session as she shares the secrets to learning how to juggle it all! As a mom of 11 kids, a wife, and a busy homemaker, Jennifer knows what it means to be torn in a hundred different directions. She walks us through how to set priorities within our days and how we can start to learn what this juggling act looks like!

Saving Time and Money in the Kitchen

The kitchen is an area in our home that can really make or break our budget and send us over the edge on feeling overwhelmed. It’s so easy to let our grocery and eating out budget get out of control and we can quickly spend large amounts of our time in the kitchen. It often feels like we are just spinning our wheels with the same chores over and over again – cook, clean up, cook, clean up, go grocery shopping, cook some more, clean up some more… Jami is not an expert chef, but she has learned a few tricks that allow her to save both time and money within her kitchen while still feeding her family healthy, from-scratch meals. In this session, she shares tips on buying in bulk, shopping online, freezer cooking, meal planning, and more!

Having a Plan for Keeping Your Home Clean

There’s nothing like the advice of a seasoned homemaker in developing a plan for keeping your home clean. That’s the biggest thing that so many of us struggle with in our homes – how do we balance all of our responsibilities while also trying to keep up on our homes? Marci shares her experience and wisdom in this area as she walks us through her housekeeping routines and goes from room to room explaining how she keeps up on everything while also giving ourselves grace and remembering to focus on the truly important things in life.

Prayer in Homemaking – Gaining Vision, Finding Time, and Praying with our Children

One of the most important things we can do as homemakers is set the Spiritual climate within our homes. And the best way we can do that is by really pushing into a deep relationship with the Lord. In this session, Katie shares her wisdom into how we can have a deeper relationship with God through our activities within our homes and especially in our prayer life. She shares the Biblical basis for prayer, how to find the time (and motivation) to pray, and how you can pray with your children.

Finding Joy in Homemaking

We all know the feeling of being bogged down by running and managing our home. Especially when it comes to the tasks that we don’t love – like cleaning toilets or sorting through the mountains of laundry. Hilary is familiar with feelings of getting overwhelmed and losing her joy in homemaking. In this session, she explores some reasons why we might lose that joy in homemaking and then also takes a heart look at how we can rediscover our joy in homemaking. Coupled with practical ideas on finding joy within our days, Hilary provides some much needed encouragement to all women!

Spiritual Disciplines for the Busy Homemaker

Often the very last things on our to-do lists each day (those to-do’s that never seem to get done) are the most important ones: our Spiritual Disciplines. Jami is no stranger to being a busy homemaker – as a wife, mom to 4 kids under 3 years old, homemaker, and blogger, she knows what it means to neglect the Spiritual Disciplines that are so important to the Christian life – specifically those of daily Bible reading, prayer, and memorizing Scripture. Join Jami as she covers Biblical wisdom from far wiser Christians and some practical ways that we can make Bible reading, prayer, and Scripture memorization a priority amidst our busy days – the importance of doing so!

Bible Memorization- 5 Minutes a Day, Lifetime Benefits for the Entire Family

Most of us know that we should be memorizing Scripture – or maybe we’ve never really thought about it much before? In this session, Trisha covers the benefits of memorizing Scripture, choosing which scripture we should memorize, and different memory techniques. Memorizing Scripture is important for all believer’s lives, but especially as Christian parents it’s important to focus on and teach our children. This is one of the biggest questions we had from last year’s conference: How can we focus on the Gospel more within our homes and teach our children? One answer:  Memorizing Scripture!

What Others Said About Last Year's Conference:

Rebecca B.

"The BIGGEST, most IMPORTANT thing I took away from this conference, and have immediately begun to implement, is to put more focus on making my home a God-centered home. I have a tendency to get caught up in the busy-work of hectic schedules and misbehaving kiddos, which leads to stress and frustration and a gradual move away from God. As wonderful as all of the sessions were, the one that has spoken most to my heart was the first one. My life, my family, my soul, their souls...will all benefit from this! Thank you so much!"

Amber W.

“Not being married yet, this conference has helped me learn that I CAN and AM a homemaker!! I want to improve my skills as a homemaker all together! Since I am a young fiancé, it has helped greatly being a part of this conference!! I am going to change how I view myself as a homemaker and trust in The Lord that he can make me the woman he wants me to be.”
