MercatorNet: From Wall Street hot shot to wife and mother

| May 20, 2016

I am proud of my life now. I retired from a paying job but I am more active than ever in engaging in real life. I know it sounds trite, but I do think I have the most important job now as a wife and a mother. And, in all fairness, I am far from […]

The “It Can Wait” Phenomenon

| June 21, 2015

It’s a common refrain, isn’t it? We see a young couple enjoying the newlywed life and through laughter encourage them to get their life in order before they have kids, because we all know kids change everything. Or we meet a soon-to-be college graduate, with a promising career ahead of her, and lightly chasten her […]

Sociologist Becomes Stay-At-Home Mom

| February 23, 2015

[Editor’s Note: Grateful for this article. If we prepare ourselves for being keepers of our homes and families we’ll have the opportunity to disciple and educate our children as well. Much of what we regularly outsource can be done by us. Outsourcing our labors can also be turned into home businesses and family economies where […]

Oh no! Workplace moms are quitting to raise kids!

| June 20, 2014

Humanity’s natural preference is deplored by unsympathetic economists With the narrowness of mind for which they are so justly famous, economists are worrying that Canada and the U.S. are falling behind other developed countries in the degree to which women work outside the home. Preferring instead to bear and rear children, these women are seen […]

Support Glory of Africa There is a lot of concern about the future in American, especially for the sake of future generations.

What is a Christian Business?

| June 5, 2013

I think everyone knows and understands there is no such entity as a “Christian business.” A business is a corporation, partnership, or proprietorship. Yet a business may reflect the values of the principal owners and managers. It is these values that determine whether or not a business is labeled Christian or non-Christian. We are told […]

Finding Financial Freedom

Photo credit: Dinkel / / CC BY It is not always a lack of money that creates financial pressure. Many times it is simply a matter of attitude.

“Well, we couldn’t have much worse weather than this for the last week of school, could we?” Margaret Paget said in discouragement. She stood at one of the school windows, her hands thrust deep in her coat pockets for warmth, her eyes following the whirling course of the storm that howled outside. The day had […]

Making Money From Home: Following the Proverbs 31 Model

| January 17, 2013

One of the great misconceptions about stay-at-home women is that they are inhibited or enslaved by their home. Realistically, nothing could be farther from the truth. Instead, being home gives women the freedom to exercise their diverse set of gifts and opportunities, orchestrating them to meet the ever-changing needs and demands of their families. When I […]

She Survived Hitler And Wants To Warn America

| December 24, 2012

I have been wondering about the sanity of promoting the idea that government employees (teachers) carry firearms while children are in lock-down (school) inaccessible to the their parents, for their ‘safe’ education. Teachers are in a difficult place. Families using government schooling are in a bind right now. Helping others reach a position where they […]

The Family Presented as Antidote to Economic Crisis

| February 6, 2012

And now for something encouraging and motivating when it comes to reviving the biblical “household economy.” A rabbi who spoke of the family, an economist who spoke of morality, a priest who spoke of conjugal love. All this took place during the meeting “The Family as an Engine of Economic Growth: Values and Prospects,” which […]

An Open Letter to Suze Orman

| December 7, 2011

I think this post has gone viral in the last 24 hours. It’s just plain common sense, but I can’t even count how many times people have asked us how on earth we can afford to have “so many” children. If every child cost us $700-1000 a month, then, yes, we might be in trouble […]
