Today’s world is a much different place then when our parents and grandparents were raising families. It seems like there is no way around both parents working outside the home. Many Christians are faced with this dilemma everyday. The cost of living has sky rocketed and it is nearly impossible to make ends meet on one income. Many Christian parents are conflicted about having to put their children into daycare, where they may not be being taught according to their Christian beliefs. There is a way to still have the added income and be available for your children.
There are many Christian, work from home opportunities available. These are not your typical work at home programs that make promises to make you hundreds of thousands of dollars within the first six months. These programs are legitimate ways to help supplement your income. There are some programs that offer franchise opportunities with well-established companies. Other companies get you going in the right direction and then you become a self-employed, independent contractor. Some require some fees up front, and as with anything, if it sounds to good to be true, look out.
The best way to find legitimate, Christian work from home businesses is to look through a Christian business directory. They have strict guidelines for being able to advertise on them. They generally look at their website and make sure that they have Christian business values through out the website. They also get feedback on these programs from other users, if any one is found to be breaking the rules; they are removed from the directory.
If you are able to work at home, you will actually need to make less money to make ends meet. You are now eliminating your travel time to and from work. You will no longer need to put your children into the care of others. The need to eat out, and having an entire wardrobe dedicated to work are no longer necessary. So you will see that your budget will shrink dramatically.
Most importantly this gives you an opportunity to raise your family the way God intended it to be, with the mother at home to raise the children. Nothing is more important then teaching your child your beliefs and morals, because if don’t teach them, the world is more than willing to. So take a look at the Christian based, work from home programs, they can sure help you and your family in immeasurable ways.
