The “I Will’s” of Homemaking

I’m the kind of person who needs a picture drawn in order to understand things better. Anyone else like that? Being a homemaker is drawn out so well in God’s Word, and it reveals that it’s more about who we are than what we do. It can seem overwhelming, but it’s really not as hard as we make it.

As a follow-up on my post on Wednesday about weaving a tapestry of beauty in our home, I”d like to offer two suggestions that will help us know how to implement those truths in God’s Word.

I recently posted about making Honey-Drizzled Shrimp Tacos for our supper. I was attempting to replicate a recipe we’d enjoyed while on our recent vacation. My version was a little lighter, since I roasted the shrimp instead of frying it. I also skipped the extra aoli sauce. The results were still delicious! Here’s how I made our tacos:
