I found this link today via another blog.
Janet has several posts on the Church’s responsibility to single mothers trying to be keepers at home.
This one, “Single mothers and the church” is particularly good. In another one, she said that churches need to realize that helping a single mom be a keeper at home is enabling the mom to obey her Biblical priorities.
This is something I’ve been trying to express and couldn’t get the words to come out right.
I attempted to do so here. My frustration in this post wasn’t for myself but for some certain situations shared by others.
Often in very subtle ways, I’ve felt that many around me don’t feel that it’s a valid choice for me to stay home with my son.
It was ok to be a stay at home mom when my husband was home. It’s ok for their wives to be. But as a single mom, it’s not ok.
Well, since I don’t live to please others, there’s no worry that I will discard God’s plan for our family. However, things would be simpler if others realized that single mom’s and their children aren’t any less deserving of time together at home.
