The homemaker has the ultimate career. All other careers exist for one purpose only – and that is to support the ultimate career. (C. S. Lewis, late British professor)

Lewis’s observation might not be widely accepted in modern Western society. It’s evident that the nuclear family is not valued as highly today as it once was. In fact, some are trying to destroy the whole idea of family. Yet, it cannot be denied that where children are raised in a two-parent home there is a much greater success rate in nearly every measurement considered.

She carefully watches all that goes on in her household; Her children stand and bless her. Her husband praises her. (Proverbs 31:27a; 28)
