Uplifting

answer my prayer like a sunrise so it lasts longerI have found that the number one thing that has helped me to be One Helluva Homemaker is when I focus on some of the most important relationships in my life. The three that are the most important to me are my relationship with God, others and myself.

I am a Christian. I am a Mormon. God is so important to me and I have found that by looking to Him and being close to Him, I am able to create so much more peace in my home. For me, this is critical to my success as One Helluva Homemaker. I wouldn’t have it any other way.

A home can’t be happy if the relationships with the people inside of the home are not constantly being solidified and strengthened. I want my family to grow closer together, so I write about any successes and failures we have to help others develop closer family bonds.

Sometimes it is hard to love myself. There are so many things that I could criticize, but I don’t think that is making my relationship with myself any stronger. I have come to accept and love that I’m not perfect but I can be and am One Helluva Homemaker.

 

Parenting

I want advice that is non-judgy. Almost every piece of advice I offer is after doing it the wrong way. So, you get to hear of my failures and learn from my mistakes. Everyone has their own way of parenting and all I want to do is provide any help I can in your journey if things aren’t going the greatest in a certain area.

I want ideas that are easy to do and can create memories. I don’t need something that is going to require a lot of planning or that will force me to go to the store and spend a fortune. Just some simple ideas please! I’m not much of a planner so all of the ideas on here will be easy, quick and FUN!

Sometimes, I just want to read about someone else who is imperfect. Because if I read that someone else has failed over and over again with potty training… suddenly, I don’t feel as bad that our tot is still in diapers.

Hopefully these parenting articles will help you become the One Helluva Homemaker you want to be.
