Why does “at-home” work matter—and how does it help us raise little people who love reading?

When my wife decided to stay at home when Abigail was born, most people didn’t really know what to do with it. After all, it’s generally assumed that a woman will re-enter the workforce as soon as possible after having a child. To choose to stay at home… well, it seems odd at best, and a strike against women’s equality at worst.

But what if it’s this attitude that is actually robbing men and women of a deeper understanding of at-home work? Of it’s value and significance? That is among the many things Courtney Reissig and I discuss today on Reading Writers.

Also in this episode, we discuss:

  • The value of “at-home” work;
  • Where at-home parents find the time to read; and
  • Books we’re encouraging our kids to read.

Be sure to grab a copy of Courtney’s new book, Glory in the Ordinary: Why Your Work in the Home Matters to God, which is on sale now.
