I read this book many years ago. It summed up a beautiful philosophy of homemaking, one that needs to be heard in our day. I had been scoffed at for my choice of staying home with my children, but no one scoffs anymore. Now, after years of following my heart, I have four great children and a beautiful home. I started simply, with ideas including Mrs. Schaeffer's ideas, and the Lord has blessed our family. This book is a must-read for every woman who needs to get a vision of what her home could be. It was wonderfully pleasant to find a kindred spirit in Mrs. Schaeffer...to find someone who agreed that the beautiful things in this world are God-sent and should be echoed in our homes.
