Now you can get video based mentoring in the specific areas you most need help in.
We are introducing something FUN and NEW to the academy. Each month of 2019, we are going to work through a different monthly challenge!
Our first challenge of the year in January (which you can access anytime!) was centered all around the habit of daily Bible reading.
Each month you will get a PDF packet with everything you need from the challenge packet to Scripture backgrounds for your phone and computer, and more!
During February we will be focusing on Prayer and for those married, we will also be focusing specifically on prayer within marriage! Here's what you will get this month:
Each month we will have a new focus. The tentative plans are March: Your Health, April: In the kitchen, and May: Relationships/friendships! I will release the official monthly challenges for the year SOON!
Finally there is a comprehensive academy to help you learn (or relearn) those essential skills within the home - no matter how old you are! You might be young and single, facing an empty nest or anything in between - this academy is built with all women and seasons and stages of life in mind.
Do you struggle in managing your home? OR knowing what to make a priority within your day?
Hi, my name is Jami Balmet and I'm all too familiar with the crushing feeling of being overwhelmed, alone, and even defeated in knowing how to care for and manage my home.
When I first got married, I was an excited and enthusiastic new wife, ready to make a home out of our tiny one bedroom apartment.
But I was far from prepared to manage a home. I was never taught (or frankly had interest in learning) how to cook, how to keep up on cleaning, how to effectively plan my time, or even what a godly marriage looks like.
So as a result, I've spent over 10 years exploring my homemaking. Digging into God's Word to discover what we should be spending our time on each day.
What does it mean to run and manage a Gospel-Centered Home?
And most of all, how in the world do I manage it all without getting overwhelmed, burnt-out, and feeling like a total failure?
How do I discover (and create) Joy, Peace, and Tranquility within my home for God's Glory?
Throughout my journey, I've read dozens of books on the subject, interviewed countless ladies, been mentored by wise women, and studied relentlessly.
And while I still have so much to learn, and so far to grow in my own personal journey, this is what led me to launch my blog and podcast - Young Wife's Guide - in 2012. And later our ministry -Homemaking Ministries.
And throughout the thousands of conversations, emails, and prayers ... an idea was born.
What if I could bring together Titus 2 mentors who teach practical homemaking skills from a Gospel-rooted framework to help teach women like myself, the skills and wisdom I was so desperately seeking?
Then three years ago, this idea, this humungous dream, was born ...
