A quick skim through an Internet search or a shelf at the bookstore will reveal resource after resource dedicated to teaching the art of homemaking. This is wonderful, especially for people like me who have to look up “how to boil an egg” every time I want to make boiled eggs. But this new book written for homemakers doesn’t have a Kitchen Hacks list in the appendix. So don’t delete the “boiling eggs” bookmark in your browser quite yet.

In her new book Housewife Theologian, Aimee Byrd wants to share with housewives a big vision for loving God.

“Everyone’s a theologian,” Aimee says, a statement with which I wholeheartedly agree. And as theologians, we do well to think rightly about God. One reason for this (among many!) is that our thoughts about God inform and drive our affections for him. Housewife Theologian is about learning to love the Lord with all your mind.

Watch this book trailer to hear from Aimee herself about her goals for this book. She also talks about her heart for women engaging with the content in their small groups and other relationships. The discussion questions that Aimee has included at the end of each chapter will serve the church in tremendous ways. Her thoughtful questions will keep the conversation going for days, as I can personally testify that I’ve been talking about one of the questions with a friend from church for about a month now!

Housewife Theologian is available on Amazon and Westminster Books. You can also follow Aimee on Twitter and subscribe to her blog.

Aimee may consider herself a housewife, but I’m really glad she’s also a theologian. I learn tons from her!

Thanks, Gloria. And now I’m curious as to what question has your brain turning…

The Zinger of the Month:

“Think of a regular day in the life of you. Do you feel like you are merely getting by as a Christian, or do you feel confident that you are integrating your life well with God’s truth? In what ways do you think you may be conformed to this world?”

It’s easier to ask the questions than answer them :)
