Theology of Home: The Spiritual Art of Homemaking
In this second installment of Theology of Home, Carrie Gress and Noelle Mering turn their attention from the home itself to the art of homemaking.
Though there has been a resurgence in the domestic arts and a desire to live a simpler lifestyle, the role of a homemaker is still unpopular. Viewed as an unfulfilling and even oppressive way of life, many women feel a sense of shame or futility in managing the world of their home.
Theology of Home: The Spiritual Art of Homemaking turns this misguided notion on its head, shining new light on the role of a homemaker as it relates the deepest truths of the Faith with an honest and fearless understanding of the modern world. Rather than looking to the 1950s for inspiration, Gress and Mering forge a new path by looking at the gifts women can offer those they love.
Filled with beautiful photography and interviews with several inspiring women, The Spiritual Art of Homemaking examines:
- what makes someone a homemaker and how we can look at the role with fresh eyes,
- how the dots between our love for home and the role of caring for a home can be reconnected,
- how we can reorient our purpose from achieving power for ourselves to caring for others,
- how to bear fruit in the various ways in which God calls us,
- how to foster the qualities that make us particularly adept and skillful at creating a home,
- the nature of both physical and spiritual motherhood,
- ∙and how our Mother, the Church, gifts us the means to fulfill the role of a homemaker.
Whether single, married, or a working or stay-at-home mother, discover how to bring beauty, order, and vibrancy to the people and place you love most: Home.
