What is it?
The Homemakers Mentor is just that- a collaborative collection of over 110 PDF files on a single CD that will inspire and encourage homemakers of all ages and types.
How did this all start?
Back in 2008, two women, Martha Greene and Rebekah Wilson, both of whom have been longtime homemakers, wives, mothers, small business owners and more, began encouraging other homemakers. Together they began a subscription only website to help and encourage other homemakers out there. Many of the files shared on that website are now available all in one great limited edition collection, The Homemakers Mentor, at a price less then that of subscribing to the website.
Let’s talk more about it.
The plethora of items on this cd can be overwhelming. Don’t worry though, it is very well organized into folders and subfolders, you can just click into what you are looking for- this is also proven handy for me as I was just surfing the collection. I wasn’t sure where to start and by browsing through I was able to come across plans that struck my fancy.
The wide range of topics include, cleaning, cooking, baking, party planning, organizing, sewing, emergency preparedness, crafts and so much more.
I often want to go back to the “olden days” when the pace of life was just slower and people just enjoyed things. My mom was a single working mom when I was growing up. Much of her time was spent making money just to support our family. She did her best to teach us kids how to cook and clean and organize, there just wasn’t always time for that. So I am grateful for the opportunity to have a mentor right here in The Homemakers Mentor.
Some things that caught my eye:
The recipe for homemade oatmeal crème pies! My son and I decided to make these together. We doubled the recipe batch because man- I love those things and so do my kids. This made the mixer overflow and I had to run to the store halfway through for more ingredients. That was a lesson about planning ahead all in itself.
The cookies ended up perfect. They were amazing. Once I asked my husband what kind of cookie he was eating and he said, “The good ones.”
Such a fun way to spend some quality time one on one with my son and the whole family benefited by getting an awesome treat. Plus we had plenty to share!
The Small Steps to Machine Sewing was a great file as well. I do already know how to sew- my mom taught me that, but this had some tips in it that even I didn’t know.
The Mom and Me Aprons made out of towels are definitely a future project for my 8 year old daughter and I.
With the Master Bedroom Detailing File, I was able to get the encouragement and motivation to clean up my dump all bedroom and make it a more relaxing place for my husband and I.
Don’t just take my opinion on this, check out what others had to say here.
