There's No Place Like Home: Steps to Becoming a Stay-At-Home Mom

Mary Larmoyeux, Author, Ethan Pope, Joint Author, Beverly LaHaye, Foreword by B&H Publishing Group $12.99 (186p) ISBN 978-0-8054-2376-1
Evangelical Christian women who would like to leave the workforce to stay home with their children have a practical guide in There's No Place Like Home: Steps to Being a Stay-at-Home Mom. Ethan Pope, who is a certified financial planner, offers evangelical Christian women practical tips on surviving on one income, while former working mom Mary Larmoyeux tackles the emotional and spiritual issues that at-home mothers may face. The book contains numerous stereotypes about women's nature and divinely ordained roles, as well as alarmist views connecting the phenomenon of working mothers to all manner of societal ills. (In the foreword, Beverly LaHaye calls the increase of mothers in the workforce ""a national tragedy."") Still, this is one of most useful and goal-centered books on the market for women who subscribe to this point of view and want to devise a plan to be at home. ( July)
