My wife often struggles with not working outside the home. I am confident that she puts in more difficult days than I do while working outside the home. Some of our financial strain could be alleviated by my wife taking a part-time or full-time job. But at the end of the day we have decided that the most important thing that we can provide for Isaiah (and the forthcoming baby Hannah) is for mommy to be at home and pour her life into them. That’s why what John Piper says here resonates with us:
Thank you Nikki for being so faithful to your glorious ministry! Our children’s passion for Jesus will be a reflection of yours.
