Welcome to Love at Home

Love at Home is the title of a hymn that discribes what I would like to have in my own home.

I am Rose, I am a married mom of four children, two of which; one boy, one girl; are still at home. My son is 15 and my daughter is 19, she has down syndrome which makes our lives a bit more complicated then we had planned. One of my older sons is married and they live not far from me and the other son lives a few hours from here.

I am really working on the “good wife” part of my life. Something I struggle with sometimes, but I can tell that my husband appreciates my efforts.

I am a member of the “Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints.” We joined when I was pregnant with my daughter and I know that the Lord led us there. We were going through a very bad spot in our lives and were barely hanging on when our daughter was born and tipped everything into chaos. I have never been so depressed in my life. I do not know how we would have coped without the love and fellowship shown to us by the members of the Church. They helped us both spritually and finacailly and I am forever grateful.

I am not exclusively a stay at home mom, I quit working 3 years ago and started a small computer support business. I also sell used book at a local market. I do not make nearly the money I used to make but I am not crazy either, so it is worth it to me.

I love working on making my home the kind of place it should be and so I read a lot of home management books and blogs. I am not organized by nature, but with help from the Spirit I am progressing. I am finding that a lot of home management has to do with attitude, the more I recognize that it is a privilege and blessing to care for this home and this family the more I enjoy it.
