Hey housewives, I can see all the housewives are ready to stand up and give me the baddest mouth licking ever. But I come in peace, no need to get violent. I’m actually on your side. Phew!!!! Relax now!

All the equal rights and justice ladies say whaddup!!! Ok so it’s y’alls fault that housewives are viewed as lazy…. Ok just kidding … a little. The fact remains that not every woman wants to have 3/4 of their lives taken up doing something they don’t even enjoy. Not saying this is the scenario all the time but go ask all the ladies you meet that work. Go ahead and ask them how many of them enjoy what they’re doing? Or who’s ready to clock out even if they just got into work? I think you know the answer to that already.

Nothing is wrong with being a housewife!

I know it is now the view that if you want to be a housewife you have absolutely no ambition and you’re just lazy. It can be the case for some but I assure you, it’s not the case for all. Some housewives are the most creative and innovative people on this planet, hands down. Great entrepreneurial ideas are birthed from stay at home moms/ housewives. Not all stay at home moms/ housewives want to sit on the couch and do nothing. If they’re anything like me, and I do believe majority of them are like me. They’re always strategizing how to bring in more income into the household. Don’t give up on that dream or that business idea you have, invest your time to bring it to life. Be a Proverbs 31 Woman Proverbs 31: 10-31 . She was creative, business oriented she brought value to her home. Her home lacks nothing. She invested in her family. Use your time at home to perfect your skills, to find who you are so you can be the best version of yourself to give to your family. Take the time to learn new skills. Keep growing and learning.

Train up a child in the way he must go

Stay at home moms are just smart!

How many of you like having to leave your new-born baby with some random stranger (most times) just to go back out to work? It’s really hard right? Yes, I can only imagine how heart wrenching it is. Well stay at home moms put a lot of thought into this and decides that she wants to be the one to nurture and bring up her children in the ways of God. Especially in the early years when their personalities are now developing. In today’s society a lot of families are suffering because the parents don’t have enough time to spend with their family. Their jobs are consuming every ounce of their time and their energy.

Now don’t get me wrong….

I have nothing against working moms. There are those women who doesn’t have the choice and you are putting your all into doing the best to provide for your children or family. I SEE YOU and I appreciate you! 

But if we are honest with ourselves these issues listed above do exist and some moms want to be able to change these issues. So the next time you hear a woman saying she wants to be a housewife or she is a housewife don’t frown at her as if she’s dumb. Housewives can be just as hardworking as a working woman. If you have kids, being a house wife is not an easy job at all ( all the stay at home moms say AMEN!!!).

I think it is more economical

To raise your own kids and to invest your time in your family. Skip the daycare fee, skip the nanny fee. At the end of the day anyone would tell you that family matters most. So what if the stay at home mom wants to invest her valuables to what matters most? Don’t make her feel stupid for making this decision.

I find this to be very important being a homemaker/ housewife is a ministry.

This is the 1st place you get to be a witness of the Love of Christ. God has commanded us in Proverbs 22:6 Train up a child in the way he should go; And when he is old he will not depart from it. The first people you minister to are those at home. Home makers have the task of setting the atmosphere for that household. She has the task of instilling Biblical values to her kids. If you want to win souls for Christ start at home!

Being a Housewife/ home-maker is a very important role in the eyes of God. Maybe society will never see it that way,  but who cares? Just continue to do your job as unto God. Give it your best shot. Trust me you will be rewarded.
