Do you need some help and mentorship within your home?

You might be young and single, a house full of little ones, facing an empty nest or anything in between - this academy is built with all women and seasons and stages of life in mind. It's an academy for Christian women to come together and learn from one another - just like Titus 2 instructs!

Do you struggle in managing your home? OR knowing what to make a priority within your day? OR feeling like your home is in a constant state of chaos? 🙋‍♀️

Hi, my name is Jami Balmet and I'm all too familiar with the crushing feeling of being overwhelmed, alone, and even defeated in knowing how to care for and manage my home.

When I first got married, I was an excited and enthusiastic new wife, ready to make a home out of our tiny one bedroom apartment.

But I was far from prepared to manage a home. I was never taught (or frankly had interest in learning) how to cook, how to keep up on cleaning, how to effectively plan my time, investing time with the Lord, or even what a godly marriage looks like.

So as a result, I've spent over 13 years exploring my homemaking. Digging into God's Word to discover what we should be spending our time on each day. And how we can discover more peace and joy within our daily home lives. 

What does it mean to run and manage a Gospel-Centered Home?

And most of all, how in the world do I manage it all without getting overwhelmed, burnt-out, and feeling like a total failure?

How do I discover (and create) Joy, Peace, and Tranquility within my home for God's Glory?

Throughout my journey, I've read dozens of books on the subject, interviewed countless ladies, been mentored by wise women, and studied relentlessly.

And while I still have so much to learn myself (!!), and so far to grow in my own personal journey, this is what led me to launch my blog and podcast - Finding Joy in Your Home (previously Young Wife's Guide) - in 2012. 

And throughout the thousands of conversations, emails, and prayers ... an idea was born.

What if I could bring together Titus 2 mentors who teach practical homemaking skills from a Gospel-rooted framework to help teach women like myself, the skills and wisdom I was so desperately seeking?

Then six years ago, this idea, this humungous dream, was born ...

Now you can join our online training academy for Christian Women.

This incredible community is meant to help equip you in the lost art of Biblical homemaking. Not so that you no longer need real, in person relationships. Bur rather, to equip you to then bring these skills back to your real life Church and community. Let's learn & grow together as believers around the globe...all for the benefit of our real life communities. 🙌

When we originally launched MHM in 2016...

I had a grand dream. I dreamed of an online training academy for Christian women where we could learn essential skills for running & managing our homes that seemed to have been lost in the last generation or two. 

I dreamed of an easy and straight forward place to learn how to bring more joy & peace to my home. I dreamed of an encouraging place where we could regularly come together to learn & grow as women. 

My idea was to do monthly topics, new training all the time, videos popping up weekly, and ongoing training and support. 

But in 2016, I had 3 year old twins, 1.5 year old twins, and was expecting surprise baby #5. I was at my limit - and I knew it. 

So when we launched MHM in the spring of 2016, we did the wise and slow approach. We introduced an academy where we sometimes updated new content but not always and with no set schedule. 

It was what we needed at the time and I've been so thankful for the 2,000 women who have taken part of MHM since 2016. 

I have finally gotten to a place in my own health journey, the ages of my kids, AND with our business and bringing on more help, that we are about to launch something CRAZY, something SPECIAL, and something BIG...

Let me be the first one to introduce you to our new & transformed My Homemaking Mentor. 

Each month we will tackle a BRAND NEW area of our homes. It will include training videos, printables to take action, recipes, a robust community, and so much more. 

Let's take a peek at what's coming starting in March 2022:

NEW COURSE: An essential guide to grinding grains

You will get access to Jami's full course on grinding your own grains. She will cover WHY you might want to, various ways to grind grains, and all the tutorials and ideas of how to do it. 

Already inside the academy, you'll also find DOZENS of Jami's favorite recipes for freshly ground grains. This course is terrific for those who want to save money in their kitchen, eat healthier, and for those who eat gluten and those who can't have it!

July's BONUS masterclass!

SO excited to announce this. In addition to the grinding your own grains masterclass, you are also going to get access to a full course from Beth of Fit2B. 

She runs a fantastic online personal fitness website with a ton of at home workouts for real women. No need to worry about a fitness guru who looks like she works out 80 hours a day, jumping around in a bakini leading workouts. Beth is a real mom who shares real life workouts. You will get access to her StartUp 7 course which is normally sold for $45 on her website! :D

Printable Packs

Inside the academy you'll find some awesome printable packs as well. And every couple of months we release new ones!! They will vary each month depending on our current topic. Our last few include: 

💥 Printables to help you do an evaluation on your life & home to assess what needs to be organized better. We will take the first steps together towards a more peaceful home life...and then continue working on it all year! 

The printable packs are designed to help you take ALL the wonderful instruction & information inside the academy and actually put it into ACTION! 🥳

RECIPES: Cooking from your pantry + more!

  • Homemade healthy popsicles 
  •  How to cook beans + lentils on a budget
  • How to make homemade tortillas 
  • One pot skillet meals
  • A special canning series 
  • Kombucha 101 series
  • And so much more!! The fun thing about this academy is that YOU get to request what recipes and topics we discuss. So join us and ask away!!  

You also get access to our archives of dozens and dozens of recipes, tutorials, and discussions!! So much to instantly jump into! 

The Monthly Community

I don't know about you, but I sometimes miss the "old" days of the internet. Days when I could search for decorating tips on Pinterest without a bunch of ads for unrelated things, days when we had more of a community on FB without it turning into a dumpster fire, ect. 

I think there are good and beneficial things about the internet. And with our community, we want to bring that back! Find a safe & Christ Centered place to post questions, gain encouragement, and have a little fun! 

The community will bring all aspects of this academy into one brilliant place. This is also where Jami will be concentrating the majority her personal posting, videos, and sharing from now on. 

BONUS: This community is NOT hosted on Facebook. It's in our new app. Download it for iOS or Android (or just view it on the browser). 

6 Months of Kitchen Collective...

 

...now added to the academy! You will get access to the ENTIRE back catalog of dozens of recipes, training, videos, and more. 

What homemaking training would be complete without comprehensive training in your kitchen? The past themes you'll get access to: 

  • 14 Day Meal Plan Bootcamp
  • Breakfast Month
  • 30 Minute Dinners
  • Slow cookers & Pressure Cookers
  • Healthy Holiday Cooking
