Hi! My name's Lynn and I'm the Editor of The New Homemaker. I became a stay-at-home mom in 1997 with the birth of my first daughter, Josie. That's me with my second daughter, Louisa, age three. As of this edit in 2014, Lou is almost 13, and Josie is 16.
I started this site in 1999 when I couldn't find the resources I needed without a hefty dose of, frankly, anti-woman propaganda along with it. I am a feminist. I choose this stay-at-home life because it's the best choice for me and for my family, not because I'm incapable of anything else or because God told me to.
Practical Advice for Stay-at-Home Moms
So what was I looking for? The practical advice and resources that will further the rebirth of the household arts--the Domestic Renaissance as I like to think of it. TNH has grown into that resource.
I do this not because I'm an expert. Quite the opposite. I do this because this is a place I need myself. And the readers here are help building it, so that we can all help each other as we re-establish the hearth fires that have very nearly burned out across this country, to its detriment.

All the Best,
