About The Homemaker’s Mentor…
IF YOU’VE EVER…
…wished for a friend or an older woman to hold your hand and teach you homemaking skills you’ve always wanted to learn
…always wanted to be frugal and live within your means by making many of the items for your home
…ever wished to make wholesome, hearty food for your family but never knew how
… then The Homemaker’s Mentor is for you!
The Homemaker’s Mentor grew from the creative idea of Martha Greene and Rebekah Wilson –both long time homemakers, wives, mothers, author’s and small business owners who specialize in offering books, products, help and encouragement to homemakers, mothers and families. Between them, Martha and Rebekah have answered many questions from frustrated homemakers and realized there was a true need for a basic homemaking class to teach lessons on the basics of homemaking and running a home.
Hence, The Homemaker’s Mentor was created! From 2008 through 2012, Martha, Rebekah and other like-minded homemakers shared their experience, expertise and practical “know how” on the Homemaker’s Mentor “members only” website, producing a vast library of inspirational “hands on” homemaking lessons that have helped thousands of readers bring peace, order and delight to their homes.
The Homemaker’s Mentor is a collection of over 110 homemaking lessons, tutorials, recipes, forms and ebooks. Here is just a sampling of what you can expect on this packed CD…
The Homemaker’s Mentor is available for the low price of $47. However, if you purchase by October 18th, you can get it for the sale price of just $37 + FREE SHIPPING! But hurry, because they only printed 500 copies of this valuable resource. Once those are gone, you won’t see this collection again until next year!

I am a homemaking junkie. I love to find new things to help me with my home. I love to try them out and see what really works for me and my family. I have some strengths when it comes to homemaking and am skilled in some very particular areas. However, I have just as many weaknesses and things I just plain suck at as a homemaker. I realize I have lots to still learn. My mother, bless her heart, tried to teach me. She really did. I just didn’t grasp and appreciate those lessons as much as I should have when I was growing up. So here I am now, in my 40’s and needing a mentor of some sort to help me learn what I refused to let my mom teach me. Of course, if I am completely honest here, I would share that I am also discovering that some of my weaknesses are also the same weaknesses that my mother seems to share. But I would never out her like that on my blog. That would be real or something. *wink*
So with that bit of background, you can imagine that I have been really excited to dig into this amazing resource for the home. I have been reading and reading and reading and let me just say that I am only still scratching the surface of this product. I think this will give me enough projects to do for the next year or so if I chip away at this by only using a couple of these resources a week. Realistically, it will take me a couple of years. Let’s face it, I will not get this all down in just a year. Rome wasn’t built in a day, and neither will my homemaking skills be evolved that quickly. I have to practice a lot before I will be amazing. But I WILL get there and The Homemaker’s Mentor will help me in my journey of homemaking awesomeness.
So what have I gleaned from this collection thus far that I feel confident enough to share with you? Why kitchen stuff of course. Yes, I admit that kitchen stuff is one of my strengths. But the things I pulled from this collection are true awesomesauce. Really.
I absolutely loved the collection of recipes for Make Your Own Mixes. I am a busy mom and I love things that are convenient. They make my life easier and I like it when things can be made quickly. However, I am not a huge fan of all of the processed junk in the things you can buy at the store. I don’t know what some of those things are on those labels. That makes me uncomfortable. So I need something where I know what I am feeding to my family and can feel good about it, as well as quick. I mean, if there is a will, there is a way, right? The Homemaker’s Mentor to the rescue!
I found all sorts of great items that I could mix up now and then just dump or pour and add liquids later if necessary. One of my favorite mixes was the Breaded Chicken Coating Mix. This reminded me of Shake n’ Bake. Only better. And it was SO easy to do! And it was really cheap to make. I like it when things are easy and frugal. It makes my world spin.
Another favorite mix was the Homemade Biscuit Mix. This was a homemade version of Bisquick. I have some favorite things I do with that mix, and to have one that I made myself just makes me smile…a lot.
I also made the Blueberry Muffin Mix. I love muffins, but hate the whole get the pantry out to make them thing in the morning. I am not a morning person, just saying. This mix is wonderful! It makes 4 dozen muffins, and I mix it up a dozen at a time. The instructions say to store the mix in an airtight container. I went one further and measured it out into ziploc bags so I only had to dump it into the mixing bowl. I even printed the directions out of what to add and taped that to the bag. (Yes…I am all about convenience here.) I omitted the dried blueberries and I just add in whatever kind of berry I happen to have on hand in my freezer. They all work really well. I even added in some chocolate chips instead of berries once and those were a hit. It really is a very versatile muffin mix. It is one I will keep in my pantry as a staple. And the best part? I can pronounce all of the ingredients. WIN!
Perhaps a favorite recipe that I made from The Homemaker’s Mentor was the recipe for Oatmeal Pies. These are a much better version of those ones you can buy in the store that are named after a little girl named “Debbie”. I wanted to show a picture of these, but the boys scarfed them down too quickly before I could snap one. So I will be sharing that recipe with a picture here on my blog tomorrow. You’ll love them. I promise. They are a little piece of heaven.
All in all, this collection of homemaking ideas, recipes, and tutorials is worth every cent. I will be using this to help organize my closets and home…you know…the areas where I really
suck need to strengthen my skills. I’ll even be using some of the things in this collection to make some Christmas gifts this year for family, friends and neighbors. Adding this resource to your arsenal of tools for the home will be one purchase you won’t regret.
