If you are convicted about finding a way to stay home, this is the book for you. Whether you think it's possible or not! I know many moms who don't believe being a SAHM or even a part time Stay-at-home-mom is feasible, but would stay home "if they could". I want to urge moms like this to get their hands on Ditch The Joneses and really evaluate their situation, before the time for such a decision slips by. If you are already living on less than two incomes, but struggling, Ditch The Joneses can help you approach your situation with careful planning and resourcefulness.
There is an entire chapter quoting at-home parents that is encouraging, and especially so if you are questioning your conviction to stay home at least part time. Research that supports the benefits of more time at home with your children is presented too.
Cathie Brese Doebler writes from a Christian perspective, including scriptures and ending each chapter with a prayer. She is also writing from experience, as she went from full-time hours to running her own business over part-time hours to have more time with her family.
