My Family

Welcome to my blog!

I was never taught how to keep up a house as a child.. I was raised by my dad, along with 2 younger brothers, so I was a bit of a tomboy.
I am married now, with four children of my own & want more than anything to be a good wife and mother. My house is always a mess... This blog is my way of charting my progress, in my spritual growth and learning how to keep house. If you have any suggestions, or ideas for me, please let me know. If you are in the same boat as I... I would love to hear from you.
I am learning and trying, but I don't know how others do it. When I find the answer, I will share it with you. I promise.
I like to cook, am good at sewing, crochet, crafts, writing... I just can't keep house. I try with everything I have, and always come up a mile short.
I am trying to over all be a good person, be a strong Christian lady for my daughters and son to look up to, a wife my husband treasures. That above all else... even a clean house... is what I want in life. I have an etsy shop at stop in sometime :)

I have started to make homemade bread for my family. I found a few recipes from the internet, and so far, this one is my favorite. I don't remember where I found it at though.

  • 2 (.25 ounces) packages active dry yeast
  • 2 cups warm water
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 tablespoon salt
  • 2 eggs beaten
  • 1/4 cup vegitable oil
  • 6 1/2 cups all-purpose flour


  1. In a large mixing bowl, dissolve yeast, sugar and water until yeast is proven.
  2. Add salt, eggs, oil and 3 cups of flour; beat until smooth.
  3. Stir in enough remaining flour to form a soft dough.
  4. Turn onto a floured surface; knead until smooth and elastic, about 6-8 minutes.
  5. Place in a greased bowl, turning once to grease top. Cover and let rise in a wamr place until doubled, about 1 hour.
  6. Punch dough down. Divide in half and shape into loaves.
  7. Place in two greased loaf pans, cover and let rise until doubled, about 1 hour.
  8. Bake at 375 degrees for 25-30 minutes or until golden brown.
  9. Remove from pans to cool and enjoy.
