So well said! Wonderful truth in this article!
Our thankful obedience as a stay-at-home-mom is simply that: thankful obedience. It’s no different than thankful obedience to any other calling or vocation, and our job is one with many blessings and benefits not found in other jobs. Let’s get and keep a biblical perspective on things – the position of housewife/homemaker/stay-at-home-mom included.
Have you ever asked a married woman what she does only to get a wearied, saintly look and hear, “I’m a stay at home mom.” I know that I have given that answer, with that look on my face. With rising recognition that work in the home is legitimate and challenging, a too-common attitude has arisen among evangelical mothers: we have the hardest job in the world (especially if we home school). Good job we realize that it’s the most important job as well, or we’d drop dead of exhaustion.
But it just isn’t so. Don’t get me wrong–staying at home and caring for children is hard work!
