Living On His Income by Mrs. Sharon White ~ Book Review

I was gifted with a copy of this book for review purposes. All opinions are honest and are my own.

Today I'm beyond thrilled to be promoting Mrs. Sharon White's book, Living On His Income. I have been a fan of Mrs. White and her blog, The Legacy of Home, for five or six years now. She's been such an inspiration to me in so many areas of Biblical marriage, homemaking and femininity, and I'm really excited that she's chosen to publish her encouraging wisdom in book form!

The book starts out with the short stories of three generations of housewives and how they blessed their families by fulfilling the Biblical calling of the keeper at home. As I read through these, I was encouraged that a simpler life just might lead to a more peaceful one. I was also challenged to see my place at home as a sacred one and cherish the blessing of it, rather than resenting the busyness of it. I love this line from the short stories section: There is something about being taken care of and trusting someone to provide. It brings out a child-like faith and trust in a housewife. It brings gentleness and a sweetness.

The second part of the book is practical advice and encouragement on homemaking on a husband's income. I was especially interested in her practice of recording household expenditures in a ledger. She gives several reasons for doing so---and they're not all budgeting-based. More than the practical though, I was just so blessed by her gentle reminders of the ways that are true and right, according to God's word. I've come away with the same peaceful motivation to love deeper, work more diligently, and smile more often, that I get when I read her blog posts.

I'd really encourage you to order a copy of Living On His Income, and check out her several other books on Amazon. You will be encouraged and blessed!

Now it's time for The {Not Just} Homemaking Party! I can't wait to see what you've all got to share!
