An ambitious seven-year program with day-by-day lesson plans to help prepare young ladies for the challenging task of managing their own homes. Considering the multitude of skills needed and diversity of jobs which are part of good home management, it is a formidable undertaking. This 601-page course incorporates both practical training in these skills and in developing Godly character through Scriptural study to enable girls to serve God as keepers at home (whether single or married). The program is meant to be used about 90 minutes per day, five days a week, during a 36-week school year. It’s not as much work as it sounds, though, since much of the course work is actual practice of the skills, not book-work. Courses include:

  • Cooking
  • Godly Womanhood
  • Sewing
  • Caring for the Sick/Injured
  • Gardening
  • Childbearing/Breastfeeding
  • Braiding Rugs
  • Child Development
  • Hospitality
  • Making a House a Home
  • Child Training
  • Flower Arranging
  • Knitting
  • Family Finances
  • Crocheting
  • Making Greeting Cards
  • Embroidery
  • Caring for Elderly
  • Raising Animals
  • Comfort Grieving
  • Cross-stitch
  • Family Celebrations
  • Basketry
  • Soapmaking/Candlemaking
  • Home Business
  • Complete instructions are included for some areas (including directions for 23 projects), but some also require the use of outside resources (about 7 per year, as listed in the curriculum). Most of these can be borrowed from the library, but you may want to purchase some as a kind of “starter” for your daughter’s own home library. Currently offered both as a hardcover book, and in a more economical format on CD.
