Do you struggle in managing your home? OR knowing what to make a priority within your day? 

Hi, my name is Jami Balmet and I'm all too familiar with the crushing feeling of being overwhelmed, alone, and even defeated in knowing how to care for and manage my home.

When I first got married, I was an excited and enthusiastic new wife, ready to make a home out of our tiny one bedroom apartment. 
 
But I was far from prepared to manage a home. I was never taught (or frankly had interest in learning) how to cook, how to keep up on cleaning, how to effectively plan my time, or even what a godly marriage looks like. 

So as a result, I've spent over 8 years exploring my homemaking. Digging into God's Word to discover what we should be spending our time on each day. 

What does it mean to run and manage a Gospel-Centered Home?

And most of all, how in the world do I manage it all without getting overwhelmed, burnt-out, and feeling like a total failure? 
 
How do I discover (and create) Joy, Peace, and Tranquility within my home for God's Glory?

Throughout my journey, I've read dozens of books on the subject, interviewed countless ladies, been mentored by wise women, and studied relentlessly. And while I still have so much to learn, and so far to grow in my own personal journey, this is what led me to launch my blog and podcast - Young Wife's Guide - in 2012. And later our ministry - Homemaking Ministries.
 
And throughout the thousands of conversations, emails, and prayers...an idea was born. 

What if I could bring together Titus 2 mentors who teach practical homemaking skills from a Gospel-rooted framework to help teach women like myself, the skills and wisdom I was so desperately seeking?

Then two years ago, this idea, this humungous dream, was born...
 
Introducing: My Homemaking Mentor
Our incredible online training academy designed for Christian women!
I wanted to design a place where you could log in and get the advice and practical tips you need to better run and manage your home...all for God's Glory!
 
And so the idea to invite Titus 2 women to come into the academy and teach courses on different subjects was born. Today the academy has 16 FULL amazing courses (with 6 currently in development)!

The topics include but are NOT limited to: 
 

The Basics of Your Homemaking: This is the first introductory course that you are encouraged to go through. It lays a good groundwork through which to view your homemaking before you head off into the next courses.

Spiritual Disciplines for Busy Homemakers: Do you ever struggle in finding the time to read God's Word? Are you not sure how to strengthen your prayer life? In this 7-part course, we take a look at how to deepen your relationship with the Lord.

Simple Routines to Keep Your Home in Order: Do you ever wish that someone could come into your house and go with you room by room showing you the best ways to keep it clean? This course takes you through each room of the house and shows you how to keep it clean in just 5 minutes a day!

Loving Your Husband & Reconnecting: There are TWO full courses in the academy focused on marriage. The first is on 100 ways to love your husband and the second is about being a wife who cultivates a fulfilling marriage. 

Learning to Live Intentionally: In this comprehensive 11 part course, you will go through practical exercises to help you learn to live with more intention. Including: How to get more sleep, creating routines you love, planning for downtime, and more! 

A Heart for Hospitality: Hospitality is all about practicing the Biblical art of serving others. But what does hospitality look like on a practical level? What meals do I make? How do I invite new families over? All of this and more is covered in this comprehensive course! 

What is the Academy?
I'm so glad you asked! Essentially the academy is like your own private homemaking college. We've got tons of courses from different instructors ready for you to go through. See everything in this amazing academy below: 
  • 16 FULL Courses on Homemaking - with 6 coming in a matter of days!
  • 50+ Practical Videos
  • Twelve - Titus 2 mentors to guide you through the academy
  • Printables & worksheets throughout
  • Instant access to the full academy & lifetime access

My Homemaking Mentor has completely turned around my home. From learning simple cleaning routines to help me manage to keep a home as a busy small business owner/work from home mom, to helping me dig deep into the Lord’s Word and learning how to live intentionally and help my family to do the same this resource has been something that I have been able to reach out to time and time again. As women, Christians and homemakers, it is sometimes so hard to manage all the “hats” that we wear, but Jami and her team has done an incredible job at being informative and reminding me that I am not alone in this!”
