Item description for Where's Mom?: The High Calling of Wives and Mothers by Dorothy Kelley Patterson...

Feminism promises women "liberation" from the home to pursue fulfillment in professional careers and public recognition, but can it deliver?

Often women who have taken salaried jobs and titled positions have found themselves enslaved to the priorities of work and career. As a result many of these women face failures in child rearing and homemaking and find that the dual responsibilities of career and family may crowd out the time for personal creativity.

Dorothy Patterson urges women to reconsider these priorities and not to forget who they are meant to be. An educated professional woman herself, Patterson probes several crucial questions about the high calling of wives and mothers in light of biblical teaching:

  • Is homemaking a job?
  • Is homemaking a challenging career?
  • Is being a mother a worthy service?
  • Is being a wife a fulfilling vocation?

This book confronts the questions that the women of our generation are asking and provides straightforward, meaningful answers from God's Word, giving guidance to women who want to be all they can be without forgetting who they are meant to be.

Reviews - What do customers think about Where's Mom?: The High Calling of Wives and Mothers?

Direct and to the Point  Sep 7, 2007
This 64-page book packs a punch! I've read a lot of books of Biblical Womanhood, and Dorothy presents a point of view and uses Scripture for her examples in a way that I've never read before. It's very convicting and she calls sin, sin. I loved it! A perfect addition to my library.
Draws on God's word to show the fulfillment to be found  Oct 5, 2003
Where's Mom? The High Calling Of Wives & Mothers by Dorothy Kelley Patterson directly confronts the dilemma Christian women face between the lure of a professional career and the demands that being a full-time wife, mother, and homemaker put upon one. Interpreting the choice from a Biblical perspective, Where's Mom? draws on God's word to show the fulfillment to be found within raising the next generation, above and beyond the endless rote demands of ordinary jobs. A thoughtful and devout look at scripture, woman's role, and the path to happiness and spiritual well-being, Where's Mom is highly recommended and inspiring reading.
