I would call a wife-Mother-Homemaker the Executive Life Architect. An Executive,in charge of planning and overseeing things to get them done. Life covers every facet of everyday for a woman. Architect is a Master Builder who designs a plan and guides the plan or undertaking and directs in the construction to completion. A woman does all of that but what she builds and guides is the development of her children and home,doing it all as skillfully as anyone with a Doctorate in a choosen field.

Stay-at-home-moms is a misnomer. Homekeeper is more appropriate. Biblically, a women keeps the home in order and shall do anything to accompish this task. Unlike a career women who is out of the house forty to sixty hours a week, the homekeeper's work schedule is flexible selling wares or growing a vineyard. There was a time when the American Flag was flown on Mother's Day to honor motherhood as revealed on the eigth and ninth fold of the American Flag.

I, myself, have preferred to be a stay-at-home mom, yet, I respect other women who are happy to work outside the home. I believe the happier a woman is, the healthier it is for the whole family, whether her work be in or outside the home. Since my children are older now, the idea of pursuing a career has become more appealing, I'm glad to have the opportunity, & am grateful for a husband who supports me either way.

My sister-in-law always said one person working in a family might make a living,but if you ever want to have anything,it really takes both working. For the average middleclass home there is a lot of truth in that, especially if raising children. My husband wanted me to stay home with the children,I did until they were older,then went to work in our own business and was home when they got home from school.

I will be going back to school to study theology. My husband wants to eventually preach and I would like to be helpful to the ministry. I am glad I will not be working as well as studying. And I am glad my husband is not against me going back to college.

For the most part I stay at home and cook,clean, etc. But, if needed, I will work. I do work during the Christmas season. Either way, I know I am helpful.

Robyn: Our financial situation determined that there be two incomes in our economy. I am grateful for having gotten a degree and starting a career, because I am self-supporting now as a divorcee.

#2: I struggled with his decision early on, but a women's Bible study leader advised me that submission was Biblical, so I did. I am grateful that I did.

Trish9863: Your husband decided whether you worked or not. I would not feel comfortable with that decision coming fom him. But if it worked for you and him, that's great! I am so glad I had a choice and still do. God bless.

My desire was to stay home, but my husband had other ideas. He was raised in an environment where women worked, and he expected that of me. He was a believer, but he saw nothing that said I should not work.

In studying Proverbs 31, I saw that I could be a wage earner and honor the Lord. It would have been nice to have servants like the woman in Proverbs. My husband helped around the house a great deal, so I was not taken advantage of.

Takisha Anderson: My husband tried that once in the early part of our marriage. I went on strike. I cooked for me and the kids, I washed our clothes, I done everything for me and the kids and nothing for him. He was getting ready for work, guess what? He didn't have any clothes to wear. It didn't take long until he was back-peddling trying to make up for it. And he has helped me out ever since.

Hi Takisha, I feel for you dear :( The men that are jerks are a dime a dozen I'm afraid :(

I would prefer to stay home and raise my children. I was raised to be able to work outside the home if required, but I was also raised in a social environment where most women worked outside the home and it was considered necessary. As a result I followed the trend and even put my oldest child into day care, like everyone else. By the time my second child was born, we decided that we would not be putting any more children into day care.

P2 Because I could earn more, my husband stayed home with the children and worked part-time around my schedule.

Two more children later and I figure that there is a reason women stayed home in the past, and it was not simply a case of who earned more. I wish that we could have done it differently now.
---lorra8574 on 10/22/07

I would like to stay home. But my husband wants me to get a job. We argue all the time about this. He wants me to work full-time (I work part-time), cook, clean, and wash/iron everyones clothes, take care of the bills and still look like a supermodel. He doesn't help with anything. He comes home and channel surfs and barks orders at me and our daughter. He even gets an attitude if I ask him to clean up after himself.

I enjoy staying at home. Here lately I have no choice. But once I get back on my feet I plan to either go to Nursing school or get a part time job somewhere. Both of my kids are in school, so while it is a blessing to have some "me", time, it also gets boring. My husband works midnights, so when he isn't working he's sleeping.

For me, I'd rather stay at home with my babies, but thank God women have a choice now.

For the most part I stayed home with my 10 children...daycare would have been exhorbitant, but it is also what I desired. We did without many things that most americans view as necessities, and I believe my chidren are better off in some ways because of that.
---Christina on 10/20/07

I don't know if I prefer to stay at home for ever but I am certainly learning to accept that it is not being unambitious being at home and looking after both home and kids/garden, in fact it's a much harder job. But even harder to achieve whilst working. I have finally decided that I like not working outside of the home for now and settled with the idea having a baby due in Feb means for now I can rest a little.

I stayed home until my LAST child left school. That was a long time as I have several children. I don't regret it for one moment even though it meant that my qualifications were outdated and finding any kind of work was difficult. I worked long enough to buy items that needed replacing in the home after all those years - carpets, cooker, freezer, roof repair etc. and am now a stay-at-home housewife again with time to give to charities. Couples have larger mortgages these days and it is very hard for them.

Smile,God is on your side.He predestinated
that one should bring in the food, and that one should prepare it.The man should provide
and the woman should distribute.
The man should make sure that it does get, distributed, along with the words of God.

I always wanted to stay home and raise my own children, but wasn't sure how to do that since my hubby had a very low income. I compromised by working at home (I currently do daycare and dictation transcription). It has been a huge blessing to be able to be home for my children (ages 17, 14, 12 and 3).
---Debbie_in_Ohio on 10/19/07

I prefer to stay home while spouse goes out to work. I have been blessed to do both by choice. No--I am not well off or rich. I have raised two kids and been married for a long time. Have tried my hand at two home businesses. I love to cook and clean and generally take care of home. I can do either/or and still be ok with who I am.

When Christians get their priorities straight more mothers will stay home to raise their children. Today, everyone wants two cars, a house they can't afford, computers for everyone in the family, cell phones for everyone in the family, and eating out all the time. A young couple could afford for the wife to stay home if they lived with what they could afford.
---Susie on 10/19/07

I actually do stay home, Im trying to have a baby and plus right now I live in a trailer with my hubby and my dog and there isn't a yard to leave her out so I have to stay here, but when we get your house then I'll have to go back to work until I have children then I want to be home with them.
