Stay-at-Home Mom? Interesting Topic of Discussion

This topic has come up for discussion quite often of late. It's almost amusing how often it has come up. A friend asked me what percentage of Christian women I thought would want to be a stay-at-home mom. I gave an answer, but then decided to research the question. I sent an email out to almost every female in my contacts list (111 to be exact) asking the question, "Do you want to be a stay-at-home mom?" I clarified that I was not asking if she thought it was best or even if she was currently staying at home, but simply if the desire was there. I have received about 40 replies so far and the current percentages are about what I was expecting. However, the responses have been interesting. The answers vary from one word responses to many paragraphs. I am greatly enjoying this!

I will wait until more women have replied to let you know percentages.

Stay tuned.


  1. Interesting question... I'm not in your contacts but I will answer you anyway :) It is absolutely my goal in life to get married and stay home with my babies :) But only until all of them are in kindergarten. Then we can reevaluate things (since teaching hours are relatively the same as the kids hours).

  2. ooo....I didn't know I was involved in a ginormous Gallup pole! Yay! I'm excited to see the results :)
