It’s Okay If Your Dream is to be a Good Wife and Mother

(Scroll down to get your FREE digital download  and 30% OFF coupon for “The Mommy Book”!)

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.

Motherhood is a noble profession.

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 Hand that Rocks the Cradle

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! 

For a limited time, we’re celebrating motherhood with a special coupon and gift.

We rarely (if ever) offer discounts on our print resources, but—for a limited time—you can receive 30% OFF the hardcover gift edition of 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 Christmas gift for the new mommies and 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!)

I'd Rather Be Your Mommy

The Mommy Book Gives

In a twinkling, all the cares of this world will pass away, and we will stand before the Lord.

In that moment, the only work that will matter is the work done for Him…

Then the King will say to those on his right, “Come, you who are blessed by my Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world. For I was hungry and you gave me food, I was thirsty and you gave me drink, I was a stranger and you welcomed me, I was naked and you clothed me, I was sick and you visited me, I was in prison and you came to me.”

Then the righteous will answer him, saying, “Lord, when did we see you hungry and feed you, or thirsty and give you drink? And when did we see you a stranger and welcome you, or naked and clothe you? And when did we see you sick or in prison and visit you?” And the King will answer them, “Truly, I say to you, as you did it to one of the least of these my brothers, you did it to me.”

Matthew 25:34-40 ESV

We strive to keep that truth foremost in our minds as we make choices as to how we will allocate our resources.

With the help of those who invested in our resources, we had the privilege of reaching our goal to give $5,000 to WellSpring International.

Now, we are investing in the following ministries that we have found to be effective in spreading the Gospel and trustworthy in caring for the least of these.

As we have observed various organizations laboring in the Jesus, we have been particularly impressed by the vision and integrity of:


Show Hope™ is a movement to care for orphans, restoring the hope of a family to orphans in distress around the world.


I-TEC  supports the Great Commission by assisting the “hidden” church in its journey toward independence under the Lordship of Jesus Christ.

Samaritan’s Purse

For over 40 years, Samaritan’s Purse has done their utmost to follow Christ’s command by going to the aid of the world’s poor, sick, and suffering. They are an effective means of reaching hurting people in countries around the world with food, medicine, and other assistance in the Name of Jesus Christ. This, in turn, earns them a hearing for the Gospel, the Good News of eternal life through Jesus Christ.

A portion of every sale of I’d Rather Be Your Mommy will be directed to support one of these front-line ministries working hard to fulfill The Great Commission.

The Mommy Revolution
