by Lori Alexander from The Transformed Wife – Getting Out of the Rat Race
Editor’s note: You know that scripture that says out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaks, which translates to if there’s something good, or bad, in your heart it will come bubbling out like crude oil on the Clampett property once you speak? I think we can safely say this post is a perfect illustration of that principle. Ms. Alexander is responding to someone promoting a teaching course on how to be organized and handle it all by a WORKING Christian mother. Here is Lori’s rewrite of what she thinks that lady should say instead of teaching how to handle the challenges of working, motherhood and life. She has some serious jealousy issues going on apparently.
“I am going to quit my full time job and if you are able, you should too. My husband and I have decided to downside and buy a home where we can live on his income. I am going to learn how to live as simply as I can within his income even if this means growing my own garden and staying home most of the time. Hey, I will even get rid of my smart phone if I have to! I have made the decision that being home full time to be with my children and be there whenever they need me is more important than my career.
I am going to put off writing books until my children are all grown up and out of the house. I won’t be speaking anymore either since I need to be home to take care of my husband, children, and home. They need me a lot more than anyone else does and I am going to make them my priority from now on. I want to make sure my children have the best chance of growing up emotionally stable and secure. Unfortunately, I am also going to close down my blog for a while and just focus on those things that love me back (my family) and mean more to me than anything else in this world.
