The Betty Crocker Creed...


I found this over at Project Home Economics (LOVE it there!!!). It is from an old Betty Crocker cookbook. Oh, how I agree with all of these statements!!

The Betty Crocker Creed -

I believe homemaking is a noble and challenging career.

I believe homemaking is an art requiring many different skills.

I believe homemaking requires the best of my efforts, my abilities and my thinking.

I believe home reflects the spirit of the homemaker.

I believe home should be a place of peace, joy and contentment.

I believe no task is too humble that contributes to the cleanliness, the order, the health, the well being of the household.

I believe a homemaker must be true to the highest ideals of love, loyalty, service and religion.

I believe home must be an influence for good in the neighborhood, the community, the country.

That's neat... It's too bad most people dont feel that way anymore. It's a shame that those views are concidered old fashioned and demeaning. I think most homes would be better off if they had a homemaker- but oh oh... I spouted off too much... ;)

Great creed! Wonder what they would say if they had a creed in today's cookbook?

Thank you so much from Charles, Marcus and I for sharing your grocery shopping tips.
I just posted a highlight of several of the responses that I received.
Just wanted you to know that I provided a link back to your blog.
I have several friends in the same boat as us ~ asking questions and have referred them.

When I was first married I got a Betty Crocker cookbook.
I'm now on my third BC cookbook. When Marcus heads out I'll make sure he has the latest copy!

What great encouraging words for Homemakers today!

Mrs. C said...

I haven't read this before...very true, even today! :)

I think Grandmother had this somewhere. If I can locate it, I think you should have it.

Any thoughts about coming down for her 90th birthday on November
