How to Get Back Home
Okay, I'm stuck. How can I go back home?
Perhaps you're one of the 80% of women who would like nothing better than to quit your job and go back home, whether or not you have children. Perhaps you've dreamed of leaving it all behind to go home and make "home" the place you long for it to be. But, practically speaking, you just don't see how it can be done. We don't live in a one-income economy any longer (thanks to years of feminist policies--see Forced Labor by Brian Robertson for a thorough expose' of this fact). Maybe your husband is convinced your family cannot make it without your salary. This section is here for you. Here you will find articles, links and tips to show you how you can go back home...without losing your mind or convincing others you have!

Do What God Says, Do, and Let Him Take Care of the Rest
You may be thinking about quitting work, and trying to add up your household profit and loss sheet, but I'll tell you right now that it won't add up. If you are waiting for it to balance out, you'll never go home. I know without a doubt that it is possible for a woman to be in the role God wants her to be in, and survive, without losing everything. Even so, in my opinion, there is no posession worth keeping if a woman has to put her family in the care of others in order to go to work to save some object. [This article is on Lady Lydia's wonderful blog, which we encourage you to visit!]
