Raising children is a noble profession. In many ways, our future depends upon it. Somewhere along the way, our culture has lost sight of just how important motherhood and fatherhood really are.
Charles Spurgeon said it well:
You are as much serving God in looking after your own children, and training them up in God’s fear, and minding the house, and making your household a church for God, as you would be if you had been called to lead an army to battle for the Lord of hosts.
Don't let anyone convince you otherwise. Rose Kennedy affirmed the dignity of motherhood when she said:
I looked on child rearing not only as a work of love and duty but as a profession, that was fully interesting and challenging as any honourable profession in the world, and one that demanded the best that I could bring to it.
Perhaps motherhood has been under attack for so many years because, as William Ross Wallace's poem so eloquently states, it has the potential to be the preeminent force for change in the world. He penned this famous line:
The Hand That Rocks the Cradle Is the Hand That Rules the World.
The world encourages children to “DREAM BIG!” It often preaches that “if you can dream it, you can do it.”
We believe that God's plans for our lives are greater than the biggest dream we can imagine, but when it comes to dreaming—it breaks our heart to know that little girls are rarely encouraged to dream of being a wife and mother.
That is one reason why we were inspired to publish I'd Rather Be Your Mommy!
Do you know a expectant mother or mother with little ones who needs to hear this message?
This little bedtime storybook makes a sweet and meaningful shower gift for the new mommies or an “anytime gift” for mommies of little ones in your life.
We've also discovered it's a great first reader for young children. (They love knowing there is nothing you'd rather be than Mommy!)
