Stay at home moms finally get their due.

By March 22, 2004

USA (MNN)–The case for true feminism got a huge boost this week. A feature article in this week’s TIME magazine lays out what it calls ‘The Case for Staying Home’. In it, the writiers recognize, as legitimate, the choices of those women who decide to stay home with their young children.

It’s an issue that provokes emotional response from both sides, and one that cries out for direction from the church. Life Action Revival Ministries’ sister ministry, “Revive Our Hearts” tackles it with a will.

In 1994, Janet Lynn was inducted into the United States Figure Skating Hall of Fame. Despite a promising athletic career, Lynn chose a different path and became a stay-at-home mom Her choice mirrors that of a new trend in corporate America and her story is the focus of a radio series airing this week on ‘Revive Our Hearts’.
Spokeswoman Monica Vaught says it’s a timely debate. “We’re just hoping that through this story, it will begin to just help people see that making the choice to stay at home is good for mothers, and that it’s good for children, and that it’s good for society.”

That, in a nutshell, is the vision behind the outreach of “‘Revive Our Hearts”. It’s meant to help women experience the spiritual freedom and fullness through practically applying the Word of God to every area of their lives and relationships.

Vaught encourages moms to look at such a decision as an investment in ministry. “Who knows how or what the Lord may choose to do with that one little life? It may be the next Billy Graham or Elizabeth Elliot that that mom today is training in their home, that in the future generation, is gonna be a mighty missionary for the Lord and could be leading thousands to Christ.”
