Hi! My name is Paula and I am the Average Housewife.
I am also…
a sinner saved by the grace of GOD,
a WIFE to Jonathan, and
a MOM to one adult, 2 high schoolers and 3 toddlers.
an Independent Norwex Sales Consultant and Virtual Assistant.
What should you expect when you visit Average Housewife?
Life Stories– I’ll be sharing what God is teaching me, family adventures, homeschooling-past, books I’m reading, my imperfections, and graces that God gives.
Food– Where would we be without food? (Besides 10 lbs thinner) I love cooking, baking, and eating. I hope to share recipes and tips as I improve my skills in the kitchen.
Getting Healthier– About the food, I like it a little too much. I had seen my heaviest weight and saw it was time to change. I’ll be sharing my motivations, tips, successes, and failures as I journey to a healthier me.
Averageness– I’m average – the norm. I’m no super wife or mom. Sinner, but FORGIVEN. Knowing I won’t be the perfect parent, but my kids will survive. Housewife some days may look like homemade chicken pot pie and a spotless kitchen, or a call to Dominos and telling my daughter to borrow her sister’s pants, because I’m behind on laundry.
I’m just an Average Housewife trying to do her best, all by God’s grace.
But he said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore I will boast all the more gladly of my weaknesses, so that the power of Christ may rest upon me. For the sake of Christ, then, I am content with weaknesses, insults, hardships, persecutions, and calamities. For when I am weak then I am strong.
