The Domestic Velocity writers go by many different titles, but the most common is “Mom.” We believe we have the power and the responsibility to make our homes wonderful places to live. We are also disappointed by the casual, hands-off approach most American’s take to family culture. We believe in taking our roles at home as seriously as our roles in our communities and workplaces. So we approach “homemaking” in a very strategic, professional, and purposeful manner. We have a job to do, and we intend to do it well.
At the same time, we recognize that the roles we play at home are fluid enough to allow for self-definition. We can make these roles into whatever we want them to be. We can play to our strengths. We are not only responsible to provide our families with a nice place to live… it is also our job to make home the place WE want to live. If we are not happy at home, we believe it is our responsibility to find the problem and change it.
When we approach homemaking in this way, we empower ourselves to create the very best environment we can. No work on Earth could be more important that that, for in the words of the orator Henry Drummond, “To enter heaven, we must take heaven with us.”
