"STAY AT HOME MOM"
A sweet friend of mine and I recently engaged in conversation regarding the way we spend our days as "stay at home moms." It's a funny label, really, considering that at times I long to have a simple quiet day at home. Although it was always my dream to be at home with my children, and I count it a blessing to be living out that dream... I sometimes in the day to day find myself feeling isolated and even quite discouraged - definitely one of Satan's tactics. After our conversation, my friend sent me the link to an article written a few years back about this very topic. Upon reading it, I felt my spirit leap in response to the great calling God has on my life as a mother. I hope you will take the time to read it, and my prayer is that your heart would be encouraged about your calling as a mother whether you are currently at home full-time, are entertaining the idea of transitioning to an "at home position," or frankly can't imagine ever surrendering your current position in the work force to be what the world calls a "stay at home mom."
