What is Moderne Homemaker?

Updated: Dec 9, 2022

You may be asking, what is Moderne Homemaker? Well, one day I will write a whole book on the topic, but for now, here is the origin story.


Moderne Homemaker has always been a BIG concept. It came to me on an early June morning in 2019, in that magical place between dreaming and wakefulness. I was just falling back asleep from being up with my restless toddler, when it hit me.


It was the culmination of nearly 5 years of conscious parenting and self re-parenting practices, half of which I did without the knowledge of Human Design (which I don’t recommend). The progressive thoughts and creative energy that had been swirling around my mind for the previous few weeks that summer finally came into clear view, like the beautiful clicking in place of a colorful kaleidoscope.



It was a feeling, a knowing, something that needed more than words to explain, because I knew it wasn’t just a moniker, or brand name. I gave it a title to harness the power, and then the movement to “make your soul at home” was born.


I believe in the HOMEMAKER.


It seems to be a restrictive antiquated term, relegated for the 1960s housewife, but aren’t we all homemakers? No matter what your race, career, gender, marital status, or if you have children or not, you shape your individual reality on a daily basis.


We all crave a space to call “home.” Whether it’s a physical creation or on the inner realm of your life, you desire a home that is welcoming, nourishing, stable, and authentically yours.



I believe in the MODERN age.


A friend said to me that “modern” has potential for great nuance because we tend to use it in juxtaposition to what was before, so we can describe what is “now.” The dictionary definition agrees with them.


Oxford Languages - Google defines ‘modern’ as an adjective: relating to the present or recent times as opposed to the remote past; characterized by or using the most up-to-date techniques, ideas, or equipment. And as a noun: a person who advocates or practices a departure from traditional styles or values.


I say moderne...yes, the French spelling, because it has that je ne sais quoi, non? It’s also because the domain for “modern homemaker” was already taken, and as much as I believed in this movement from the start, I wasn’t prepared to throw down 5-figures on a website as a fledgling soulopreneur. My personal design of stubbornness (Channel of Struggle) made it work and I consider it a blessing.


Moderne is about simplicity, harmony, and truth.


It is a questioning of the status quo in theory and form. A breath of fresh air in today’s hyper speed and hyped up society. It is a return to connecting to the natural world and natural rhythms. It is a remembering of the personal power that we’re each created with, so we can co-create a magical earthly life for ourselves.


In the modern era we find ourselves in, it’s especially important to separate from what has been. Traditional values that have served as the status quo, no longer serve us. Did they ever serve us all?


It is time to challenge the ideas, words, and behaviors that have been adopted by the masses. It’s time to go back to the basics of humanity. It’s time to recognize how we are truly fulfilled in our lives.



This movement is not just for mothers, women, or people who have children.


Moderne Homemaking is a reclamation for us all— for we are all and each the homemakers for our souls. Being a Moderne Homemaker is being limitless—in our capacity to honor our individual strength and wisdom, while also bringing our unique selves to the collective table for the good of everyone.


It is a remembering of ourselves as sacred and whole human beings on this planet. A harmonizing *with* this planet. A humble and honest reconciliation of the past, present, and future. For our generation, the next generation, and beyond.


So, if you're reading this in agreement, then you are a Moderne Homemaker. You’re invited to make your soul at home here.


Love through all seasons,

--Libby
