                     – Proverbs 31:13

She provides food for her household
                     – Proverbs 31:15

She makes linen garments
                     – Proverbs 31:24

Let her own works praise her in the gates
                     – Proverbs 31:31

Study the domestic arts while being encouraged to be a virtuous lady through the studies of Esther in June 2016 and Ruth in July 2017. During the Ruth Study the participants will learn to sew, crochet, bake bread. As well as taking care of the farm animals, they will also learn the art of gardening, canning, freezing and drying foods for later use, putting up preserves and growing and using fresh herbs. During the Esther study (offered June 2016), we will use the fresh herbs to make soap and natural beauty products as well as create beautiful crafts for the home and finish the study with a formal tea party.

Ruth Study

  • Ruth: Day 1
    DEVOTION – "Great Women of the Bible: Ruth"
    HERB DAY – The camp is launched with each participant assigned a sweet herb to be studied this week. All participants will share their recipes, the information they learned about their assigned herb, and most importantly select a dish to serve at the end of the week tea with their herb. This allows each participant to have an in-depth study of one sweet herb and still benefit from the studies of all the other participants. The girls spend time in the herb garden today learning to identify and use God's gifts.

  • Ruth: Day 2
    DEVOTION – "Great Women of the Bible: Ruth"
    GARDENING DAY – The delight of a homemaker can be her garden. Learning to select, plant, care and harvest the garden is the center of today's study. Today we gather fresh fruits and vegetables and make preserves, relish, sauces and take each item from its raw state to a sealed jar of food to be put away for later consumption. Each participant takes home fruits of her labor.

  • Ruth: Day 3
    DEVOTION – "Great Women of the Bible: Ruth"
    FOOD PRESERVATION DAY – Learning to freeze and dry fresh foods is our focus for the day. The girls will pick herbs from the herb garden and dry them for later use. They will also pick fresh fruits and vegetables, learn the art of drying and freezing them for future use, and make fruit preserves.

  • Ruth: Day 4
    DEVOTION – "Great Women of the Bible: Ruth"
    BAKING DAY – This is a marvelous way to end the study of Ruth. Ruth gleaned from the barley and wheat fields and the young ladies will glean insight about using whole grains in all types of baking activities. They make pastries and bread and prepare to serve them in the afternoon as we close the day with an informal Tea Party. The sweet herb project is to be prepared for the party today.



Esther Study

  • Esther: Day 1
    DEVOTION – "Proverbs 31: The Wise Woman and the study of Esther"
    CRAFT DAY – On this first day of the Esther study, each participant is assigned a bitter herb to be studied throughout the week. An oral report will be presented on Day 4 along with a sample of a recipe using the bitter herb (i.e. Red Clover Tea, Comfrey Salve, Peppermint Lip Balm). As a part of Craft Day, all participants will begin their watercolor stationery set, create a pressed flower project, and learn to crochet. The girls go home with their projects and the know-how to make many more.

  • Esther: Day 2
    DEVOTION – "Great Women of the Bible: Esther"
    FLOWER PRESERVATION DAY – Since we continue our focus on home crafts, the girls will gather and dry flowers and then create a dry flower table arrangement or wreath using previously dried flowers; they will also learn to make lye soap in the afternoon. They take home soap and their own beautiful dry flower creation.

  • Esther: Day 3
    DEVOTION – "Great Women of the Bible: Esther"
    NATURAL BEAUTY DAY – Enjoy making glamorous and luxurious beauty products using such items as lavender, mint, aloe, beeswax, sea salts, cucumbers, yogurt and much more. Make homemade bath salts, scrubs, and facial products, and spend the day in Kingdom Academy's own natural healthy spa. We will also be providing manicures and pedicures. This is a very special day for everyone.

  • Esther: Day 4
    DEVOTION – "Great Women of the Bible: Esther"
    HERB DAY – The herb garden is such a delightful place to spend the day. The girls sniff, cut, plant, take cuttings and use the herbs in a variety of ways today. Their first focus is to prepare their dish for the Tea Party later in the day. The girls also create a trivet using the herbs and grains, which gives them an opportunity to use a sewing machine. They collect and dry herbs to take home for future cooking projects while also taking cuttings and samples so that they may begin their own herb garden at home. We close this day and the Esther study with a Formal Tea.

We hope you will join the Tuggle ladies (and our special guests) for a domestic arts study next summer. We will parallel the teaching from the Titus 2 passage: "Teach the young women to love their husbands, to love their children, to be discreet, chaste, homemakers, good, obedient housewives, that the word of God may not be blasphemed." The camp is open to ladies, ages 7-100. The classes meet from 9:00 until 3:30 daily. The maximum number of participants is 20.
