I found a curriculum to instruct ladies in home making and on being a keeper at home

It was very hard to find any good materials on home economics.  When I was young they had plenty of books on home economics and it was taught in the public school.  Now days, because feminist felt ladies learning about home economics was abusive it was taken out of all the schools.  This lack of education has left ladies not knowing what to do in the home.  I have heard so many ladies saying they don't know how to cook and even how to sew a button onto a blouse when a button happens to pop off their blouse.  It is so common for ladies to say there is nothing to do in the home and there fore I must go outside the home because the home is boring.  I on the other hand am never board at home.  There is so much to do.  This curriculum is a Mennonite one.  The Mennonites are very conservative that wrote this curriculum.  Please do not feel it is necessary for you to wear the cape dress.  I personally do not wear a cape dress because I am not a conservative Mennonite or Amish.  Some Mennonite ladies get upset when ladies not in their church wear the cape dress.  It is a very important part of their church and culture.  When new ladies join the Mennonite church they are not allowed to wear the cape dress and the white cap unless they prove to the congregation that they are living the Mennonite life.  I had a lady that was a deacons wife tell me, "  It upsets me when non Mennonites wear the cape dress and cap because they do not follow our beliefs and they do things we would never do."  But one can still be feminine and modest without wearing traditional Mennonite and Amish dress. 

The Home Economics curriculum comes from Christian Light Publications   This is the link for course one. 

Course one includes Cooking, planning a healthy menu, Making a shopping plan, watching the calories, how to choose materials and about the different types of fiber, sewing, the Godly home, child development, keeping the body healthy.

The second course Home Economics 2    covers

 bread and cake baking, gardening and food preservation, and money management

I was going to only teach ladies here in Valencia county New Mexico but I am considering teaching online maybe on an online phone method.  If you are interested, please send me an email.  If I get enough people interested,  I may start a class.

The Christmas Candle

   My husband purchased a ROKU for me.  I'm shut -in and he wanted something nice for me.  Well there are all kinds of so called Christmas programs.  "A Merry Cricket", "The Grinch Who Stole Christmas" , Rudolph and Santa Claus who ends up in prison, etc. etc.  The sad thing is that none of these had anything to do with what Christmas truly is about. The holiday is named Christmas which means the day of Christ.  So on this holiday we are supposed to be remembering Christ and what his birth meant for us.  Without Jesus Christ we would have no salvation.
     So the only program on my ROKU that had anything to do with Christ was "The Christmas Candle".  I don't want to spoil it for you but to say that Christ worked mightily in the little town of Gladberry.

Miss Julia's Patterns

I usually make all my clothes.  I like to dress modest and feminine and around where I live this can be very challenging.  There just aren't any stores that have the kind of clothing I like to wear.  So I'm always on the look out for nice pattern stores.  I happen to knit, crochet, sew and spin so I can get just what I want.  Today I got an email from one of my favorite stores.  Miss Julia's Patterns.  She has a lot of skirt and dress patterns that are vintage and so they are a lot more modest than most of what we have today.  Here's her link.  Go ahead, and have a great time looking at her items.  P.S.  she has a blog and a store.  Many items in her store are reasonably priced and on her blog you can find many free patterns too.  Miss Julia's Patterns

Modest Christian Ladies Titus 2

This was my first Modest Ladies Blog.  I started it 18 years ago when I realized by prayer and reading Bible that I needed to dress feminine(dresses and skirts), to be a keeper at home and to use a head cover.  This blog was meant to be for the world.  Candle in the Window is my blog that I hope will get ladies in New Mexico in Valencia county interested in following Christian women's modesty etc.  It was my hope that some would like to learn and I am hoping to teach if possible if God so blesses me.  But there are a lot of articles and links to good sites that are educational for all.
