"An Interview with Ruth Gaskovski"
A glimpse behind the scenes of a homemaking career
My husband and I are currently working on another in-depth article that will delve more deeply into the 3Rs of Unmachining. Keep your eyes on your inbox early next week.
In the meantime, I am posting my interview with, who kindly invited me to share my insights on homemaking and mothering as part of her “professional development” series on . Homemaking is a counter-cultural career move, especially in an age when, as noted in her post earlier this year, “Fully one in four American mothers return to work within two weeks of having a baby. And even in European countries where maternity provision is more generous, the political winds blow relentlessly toward “liberating” mothers from babies.” I chose the opposite route almost twenty years ago, and share a “glimpse behind the scenes” into my career as homemaker; my educational background and transition into motherhood; how my view of motherhood and homemaking has changed as our children have gotten older; what skills I consider most important; and the difficulties and rewards of mothering and home life. I hope the interview will provide some insights and encouragement.
Finally,and I would love for you to join us at The Unmachined Coffee House this Saturday, Oct 28th at 3 pm EST for a live discussion of the 3Rs of Unmachining, as well as special insider reports from and on the Front Porch Republic Conference, including ’s keynote speech. We are extending a special offer for this event (so it will actually cost you less than a Starbucks coffee to attend).Hope to see you there!
Until next time,
