Episode 190 | Do Homemakers Have Too Much Time on Their Hands? | Katie of Now That We’re a Family

I heard Katie and her husband discussing this idea on their podcast, and I was intrigued by the thought that maybe a problem we face as homemakers is not that we don’t have enough time, but that we have too much of it.  In our conversation, Katie and I look at how modern conveniences save us time but have presented us with new challenges in terms of productivity and efficiency.  We hope this episode leaves you feeling encouraged that you can get things done with kids around, you can learn new skills, and you can become the kind of homemaker you dream of being.  Join us!

In this episode, we cover:

  • Being intentional as mothers of large families
  • How modern convenience has presented us new challenges
  • Filling up our time with soul satisfying pursuits
  • Can you really get stuff done with little kids around?
  • Avoiding boredom in motherhood and choosing fulfilling activities instead
  • The freedom of keeping a simplified home
  • Discerning what homemaking tasks are worth our time
  • Overcoming the mental barrier of learning new skills
