I’m Katrina. Writer and creator of Sunflowers On The Hill! God has given me the opportunity to be a stay at home mom to my 3 amazing kiddo’s. Zoey, Jaxson, and Abel; sometimes refereed to as Z, J, and A. I am married to my high school sweetheart whom I adore more each day. They are my reasons for everything I do.
My Homemakers Creed
(Thanks Mama for printing this for me)
That faith and family are my top priorities
That I was created to be my husbands helpmeet
That serving my family is a privilege and an honor – one that will not be taken lightly
That my family deserves the time, the attention, and the effort it takes in making our house a comfortable home
That everything I do, whether it be as simple as a load of laundry or as elaborate as a formal dinner party, should be done as unto The Lord
That some days will be harder than others, which is why I’m given the ability and strength to choose Joy!
That my actions and my words affect my family,and therefore I will arrive to live my faith out daily
I hereby pledge to joyfully serve my family!
(The Homemakers Creed was created by Marjorie Husted (the woman who created Betty Crocker) in 1944 for “The American Home Legion”)
