Encouragement for the Homemaker

We live in a society that frowns upon women staying at home and taking care of their husbands and children. We're being told by radical feminists to get a paying job or pursue a career. If we can't find a good one, go back to school! Put our young children in daycare! Put our older ones in public school!

It's difficult when we hear these voices, and we may question if we've made the right choice. We're being portrayed as failures in society. The truth is, our Heavenly Father gave women a divine role in the raising of families. While we are to work alongside our husbands, this doesn't necessarily mean outside of the home. We can support him in his career while easing his mind on the caring of his home and children. It's a huge responsibility, often overlooked, but one of the most important we'll ever have.

“The woman who makes a sweet, beautiful home, filling it with love and prayer and purity, is doing something better than anything else her hands could find to do beneath the skies.” 
―J.R. Miller
