Read Glory in the Ordinary: Why Your Work in the Home Matters to God (The Gospel Coalition) Online Free - For stay-at-home moms, it's easy to view other people's work as more valuable to God, dismissing the significance of seemingly mind-numbing, everyday tasks. In this life-giving book, Courtney Reissig encourages moms with the truth about God's perspective on their work: what the world sees as mundane, he sees as magnificent. Discussing the changing nature of stay-at-home work and the ultimate meaning of our identity as image bearers, Reissig combats common misunderstandings about the significance of at-home work—helping us see how Christ infuses purpose into every facet of the ordinary.

Does working in the home matter, when tomorrow you are going to have to do it again? Does it matter to God?
"Our work isn’t giving us any points with God, but it is telling the world about the God we worship. It’s telling what we value most. It’s telling what we hope in even when it is hard.

The work of the home is nothing to be ashamed of. It is valuable, important work. It is necessary work. It is work that God sees as integral to his work in this world. In fact, because you bear his image, you are imaging him with every task you accomplish in your home on any given day.

Stuffing a ratty t-shirt into the washer’s maw, I try not to think about the fact that it was only yesterday that I hung this very same t-shirt on the clothesline. The laundry is never done — even though we are down to a family of four the...

On somewhat of a whim I decided to grab the audiobook of Glory In The Ordinary recently. The subtitle caught my eye, "Why Your Work In The Home Matters To God". As someone who has struggled with my identity, especially after I quit working as a hygienist, I thought this book sounded helpful.

I loved a good 90% of this book. The only issue I had with it was that she focused a good bit of her time saying we shouldn't have to do it all. That even the proverbs 31 mom had servants.

Interesting read. I particularly enjoyed learning about how attitudes towards the home and family have changed and morphed throughout history.

I liked that she addressed work for all types of women not just "stay-at-home" moms. This allows her to talk about work in the bigger picture and helps alleviate some of the tension between sides of the "mommy wars." She discusses the importance of family and creating a good theology of work at h...
