ABOUT MAMA BEAR MATTERS:
This blog is dedicated to inform, support, connect and celebrate stay at home mothers.
Mama Bear Matters recognizes mothers who have decided not to work outside the home, in order to devote their full time love and attention to caring for their families.
At Mama Bear Matters, mothers can gather to discuss various matters that are unique to the life of being a full time stay at home mother.
Open-ended discussion questions will be presented after each post to encourage the reader’s involvement.
Below is a poignant statement about the value of homemaking made by Holly Schurter (mother of eight and grandmother of ten) which signifies the values of Mama Bear Matters:
Cultivate the skills, not only of housekeeping, but of making a home for your family. As you know already, they are not always exactly the same. Housekeeping consists of the laundry, the dishes, the toilets, and floors that need to be scrubbed, but homemaking is something else…
Homemaking is the deliberate cultivation of beauty and productivity in family relationships. Homemaking is about helping your family feel loved and comforted. Homemaking is about celebrating each other, and about caring for each other, as well as for your friends and extended families and even the occasional stranger. Anyone can keep house. Not everyone bothers to make a home.
Through Mama Bear Matters, you can join the Stay At Home Mama Bear Mentorship Program. By making connections within this community of like-minded mothers, you can gain a personal mentor, to help support you through your experiences as a stay at home mom. Then, you can serve as a mentor yourself, and guide another stay at home mom through her journey.
If you or anyone you know would like to join the Stay At Home Mama Bear Mentorship Program, please contact email@example.com to get connected.
The world of a stay at home mom is incredibly special and distinct. You can relate and connect to others by sharing your very own journey as a stay at home mom.
