    LOVE IT!!! I’m currently praying about/debating joining CC. A google search landed me on your youtube page – then Pinterest – then the blog – then facebook! I am not stalking you! Anyways, this post was wonderful – thank you for doing it! I fully respect full-time stay at home moms. I think it is wonderful what they do and may the Lord bless them. I’m a working mom who is blessed with a job that is mostly from home. I am now pregnant with my 4th child (my oldest just turned 6) and many people have assumed that “now” is the time I should “stay home”. I’m home ALL THE TIME!! Yes, I leave one day a week for 8 hours but I am home with my girls the rest of the week. Yes, I have outside help (housekeeper, mother’s helper, AMAZON – I’m not a super woman) but I get to do what I love (practice law) and spend time with my children. Often they are able to “help” me work when they have completed their school work. One day the Lord may close this door (and I know and understand this) but so far, He has given both my husband and I a peace about it. I have heard many judgmental comments or I’ve heard people validate what I do with – “well, at least you homeschool” or “at least you don’t send your children to day care”, etc. Or the best yet, I’ve heard “well, you are a strong black woman, I can understand that it would be hard for you to submit and stay home”. Ouch! For many years, I “hid” that I worked from many of my peers (I’m the only mom who willingly works at our church) and we are a second-generation homeschooling family (both my husband and I were homeschooled). This is easy to do when you work from home =) However, I was convicted by Micah 6:8 – the Lord has asked me to be just, love mercy, and to walk humbly with Him. I realized that I have nothing to be ashamed of. I teach my girls to Love the Lord and Serve Him. I am blessed to be able to hire older girls from our homeschool community and my sister-in-law to help me raise my girls. What I love is that my children’s role models are young ladies who have gone off to serve as camp counselors, missionaries both domestic and overseas, ladies who have chosen to marry young Godly men, and ladies who have gone off to college where they have joined wonderful Christian groups – most importantly – the role models that my children have are young women who love the Lord. I have been given this opportunity because I work. However, I know that if I didn’t work, the Lord would bless my family in different ways. Anyways, I stumbled on your page for cc information (still need to look for that) and I found a blessing of encouragement. You never know how God will use your work! =) God Bless You!
