Couldn’t Have Said It Better…


In a world filled with peril, what greater gift than to have the power to make a home out of what would othersie have been merely living quarters.” Linda Weltner

“The thing that is so important for us to keep before us is that if we choose not to do this very special job, it will simply not get done. The mothering, the nurturing, the comforting and caring that fills the committed homemaker’s day will simply be lost, and society will be impoverished. . . .

Women can give up their jobs as clerks, engineers, salespeople, doctors—other people will step in and the world will go on as smoothly as before. . . . The groceries will still be sold, trucks loaded with merchandise will still roll across our highways, and Wall Street will carry on. Not so with homemaking. We are the special people into whose hands the homes of the country and the world have been entrusted. When we leave this job the world does not go on as before. It falters and begins to lose its way. We homemakers are indispensable.

Homemaking is much more than a job—it is a profession: a profession which is venerable, honorable, and of the highest benefit to mankind. We must not forget this.”Mary LaGrand Bouma
