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.
