Mployed stay at home moms Which Is Not As Common is not as common it used to be in the 21st century However when it deals with Biblical concepts which don t change with the centuries it can be helpful I picked up this book again originally published in 1977 seeking some counsel from an older Christian woman who has also ministered alongside her husband overseas I seeking some counsel from an older Christian woman who has also ministered alongside her husband overseas I Linda Dillow sort of pioneered this subject challenging Christian wives and mothers decades ago and her perspectives and insights are sometimes a bit dated which is one reason why I would not highly recommend the book today I now that in decades past God really used this book to challenge women and to transformed marriages and families There were things I took away that challenged and inspired meHowever for a woman who has sexual abuse in her history or who is already guilt ridden in her marriage this may not be the best book to read I feel like there are just so many complexities related to intimacy in marriage and approaching just women or just men when it is such a two sided thing is difficult and often counterproductive I felt that subject was oversimplified in the bookAfter reading this I was also left unsatisfied with regards to the subject of prioritizing God first then marriage then children then ids self community etc And she also touched on the subject of self care but I have a lot of uestions still The best part about this book subject of self care but I have a lot of uestions still The best part about this book maybe I should say the thing that stood out to me the most was the reminder about priorities The author suggests an order to whatwho should have the highest priority and trickles down to the things that should have the lowest priority Good reminders and ways to incorporate into daily life.
