Bringing You the Domestic Renaissance Since 1999
i! 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, about 4 years ago (need new photo, but I love this one of Lou asleep on me as I'm working). I'm the one with the long hair.
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.
What's to Do Here?
Plenty! Every day I write in my blog, Diary of a New Homemaker, on the topic of the day. On the home page you'll find the latest entry along with the newest article, the current poll question, some random articles for the season and the topic of the day and the most recent comments from users.
Anyone can read what's here. If you get a free account, you can participate more fully. We have a Forum where you can ask questions. You can start your own blog, if you wish, for free. We have a Recipe Box where you can find a recipe or leave a recipe.
If you look to the top right, you'll see where you can subscribe to the TNH Newsletter, which comes once a week, or the daily TNH by email service, which puts all the newest content right in your inbox. And if you have any questions or concerns, feel free to contact me: firstname.lastname@example.org.
All the Best,
