As I previously discussed in Shepherding Our Future Woman, Joanna and I are intent on helping Hannah become the woman that God wants her to be. In particular, Joanna wants Hannah to know "the joys of being a wife, mother, and homemaker. . . . We must tell our daughters of the sacrifices that homemaking demands -- but also of the unsurpassed rewards it offers."
What are some specific homemaking skills that we can teach our daughter, so that she can care for and help her family? It is a very diverse list! (And please don't think that I'm saying every woman needs to be an expert in all these skills, any more than I believe that every man should know how to grill a steak or change the oil in his car; I can't do either.)

- Nutrition and health
- Decorating capabilities
- Childhood development and education
- Finances and budget
