...if you think "a lazy, directionless attitude" might define your stay-at-home daughterhood
...if "blessing my family as a godly daughter or sibling" seems like an impossibility
...if you need encouragement to see your home as "a training ground for life ahead"
...if you sense a lack of "confident enthusiasm about home" in your everyday life
...if you feel unprepared to answer questions like "why are you staying at home"
P.S. If you are a daughter who might dismiss Joyfully at Home because you think it might condemn you or be too "out there" a concept for you, please reconsider! The author hopes that all daughters will consider staying at home, but she graciously understands that not all young women will pursue it. In Joyfully at Home she presents neither a cookie cutter "how to" book, nor a step by step one-size-fits all plan for young women. Joyfully at Home's pages overflow with encouragement any daughter needs...getting along with parents and siblings while growing in the Lord, learning to focus on others, developing a heart of ministry and service rather than living for everything "me," addressing faulty thinking about life issues, working on attitudes and being purposeful in life before marriage.... Yes, Jasmine Baucham addresses all her topics within the context of stay-at-home daughters; yet I found that what she discusses remains applicable, pertinent and useful in so many ways to any young women.
