Keepers at Home and Contenders for the Faith
I love learning new skills! I did not grow up cooking, sewing, knitting, crocheting, or anything remotely domestic. I had never heard the term “keeper at home” (Titus 2:4-5) even though I had grown up in church, and “staying home” was never a career choice that appealed to me. That is why I felt so strongly when I had my daughter that I wanted her to learn the skills that I never took the time to learn when I was younger (which I knew to be so important now that I was older.) So now we learn together (remember I never learned these things myself but you are NEVER too old to learn a new skill.) One of the ways we do that is by hosting a Keepers at Home group at our home. I, along with some other great moms, teach the young ladies. It is so amazing when you look around the room and see young ladies sitting at the feet of their mothers learning these skills. My husband teaches the young men (which is a Contenders for the Faith group) skills that are quickly becoming a lost art. Our desire is that these young men and young women will grow up to be well rounded Defenders of the Faith (and their families) and Keepers of their homes. You can check out these clubs at their website: http://www.keepersofthefaith.com/category/KeepersClubs. Maybe it will inspire you to start your own group.
