Here’s the short version….
I sometimes include affiliate links or ads on my site or in my posts. This means that if you click on a link and/or make a purchase, I may be compensated or receive a small percentage of the sale, at no extra cost to you. You are not obligated to use these links when you make a purchase, but when you do it helps support my ability to manage this site.
Also, I may occasionally be given a product for free in order to review it. Regardless of any compensation I may or may not receive, I will always express my true opinions of any products or services I review, promote, or highlight. Of course, any product claim, statistic, quote or other representation about a product or service should be verified with the manufacturer, provider or party in question.
Thank you so much for reading and supporting this site!
Now, here’s the long version….
One of my greatest homemaking heroes is a woman I’ve never met. She’s an excellent wife, a diligent manager of her home, and a nurturing mother. She fears the Lord and is praised by her husband and children. She’s wise, kind, and hardworking. She works from sunup to sundown preparing interesting meals and making fine clothing. Oh yeah, she helps the poor and the needy, too. I’m tired from just thinking about following her example.
Who is this amazing lady? She’s the woman described in Proverbs 31:10-31. She’s everything I want to be…and so much more.
On top of being good to her husband, training her children, and caring for her home, she also has other pursuits that help her family. She is a business woman. The Bible tells us that she “considers a field and buys it; from her profits she plants a vineyard” (Proverbs 31:16). We also know that she “makes linen garments and sells them, and supplies sashes for the merchants” (Proverbs 31:24). Is there anything this woman doesn’t do?!?
Well, I’m not rushing out to buy fields, plant vineyards, or make clothes to sell. I want to contribute to my family’s finances, but my gardening and sewing skills leave a lot to be desired! Still, there are other ways I can be industrious and (hopefully) bring in an income. I can pursue other options available to me. I can write.
I love writing. As a matter of fact, I had no idea how much I loved writing until I started this blog. I enjoy the creative outlet. I enjoy sharing what I’ve learned (often the hard way) about homemaking. I enjoy talking about the gospel and what God is teaching me about the necessity of His grace for every area of my life, especially my homemaking. I really do like it. A lot.
It excites me to think that I may be able to contribute financially to my family by doing something I enjoy so much. I don’t ever expect to get rich from this, but I do hope to earn a little income. A couple of the main ways that happens on a blog is through advertising and affiliate marketing.
This means that when you click on certain ads, I may get a few cents. When you buy products or sign up for promotions that are offered through the links on my site, I might make a little money. Often, when you purchase products that I write about (when I include a link), I receive compensation for that sale, at no additional cost to you.
You are not obligated to use these links when you make a purchase, but when you do it helps to support this site. So to those of you who click, sign-up, or purchase, I want to say a huge “THANK YOU.” You are helping me become more like that incredible woman in Proverbs 31. You encourage my heart. You bless my family.
Now let me make a few things clear. First of all, I write about gospel homemaking because it’s what I believe. It’s important to me. I would write exactly the same things even if I never tried to make a penny. Making money here is secondary.
Also, I may occasionally be given a product for free in order to review it. Regardless of any compensation I may or may not receive, I will always express my true opinions. Period. Honesty and integrity are character traits I am not willing to compromise.
Of course, any product claim, statistic, quote or other representation about a product or service should be verified with the manufacturer, provider or party in question.
I appreciate the time you take to read Gospel Homemaking. It means more to me than you can imagine. Thank you for reading, and thank you for helping me serve my family.
