The Home Maker's Corner


Verse of the Day


Welcome to the Home Maker's Corner!

The goal here is to provide Bible-based helps, studies, and encouragement for ladies. I hope to avoid fluffy and thoughtless Christianity while helping women think critically in a biblical context. Our faith and practice should be reasonable before God and based upon His word. Come now, and let us reason together, saith the LORD... Isaiah 1:18

All scripture quoted in The Home Maker's Corner is from the Authorized King James Version. All scripture quotes are in red to help you distinguish between what the word of God says and what humans think. We believe in one final authority - the word of God - not our own word, and not anybody else's word. This is why you will find from time to time that an article has been changed or even removed.

Articles and items have been divided into categories to help you find what you may be looking for. There is some overlap since some articles apply to more than one area.

This page is edited by me, Mary Stephens, with assistance from my husband, Peter Stephens. Most new articles that I write are read and approved by Peter before they are posted. We work together as a team. Please also visit my blog The Cotton Apron, for recipes, home helps, sewing, quilting, crafts, more Bible studies, photography, vintage graphics, and for a more personal glimpse of our lives. Also, you may find my husband's Bible web page useful: The King James Bible.
