Vocation of Motherhood

A friend from my moms group at church forwarded this to me. Finally a good response for those questions "You stay at home..... What do you do all day?"
Click on the article to read.
It's the vocation of motherhood.
Our job as a stay at home mom is just as much a vocation (job) as those who choose to work outside the home.
Some people understand and some people don't.
Be proud of what you do. Raising children is a very important job!
Now back to work, I've got a baby crying who needs a bottle and a 3 year old who needs a snack. Makes me smile!!


  1. Oh my! I LOVE her response!! I get extremely irritated when I am judged on staying home and how I must have so much time on my hands! Or the fact that because everyone assumes we have so much time on hands how we shouldn't have an issue doing anything they want or adding on to us what they don't have time for! :)

  2. I agree with Crazy Me! It is very irritating to be judged, when people ask you what you do and you say you are a stay at home mom!! Thank you so much for posting this. I will be sharing this with all my mom friends-with and without kids, working outside the home or not.
