You do what God tells you to do... He may call you to be a stay at home mom and submit and respect your husband or even a missionary and do extraordinary things for The Lord... And look in the bible for examples of Godly woman and such, the book of Ester, Ruth, and when Jesus speaks about woman and their husbands... Look to the word and stay in prayer and follow Gods path bc his was is best;) God bless you sister!

Its your life, live it the way you want to. If there is a god and if they love us, they would approve of whatever you want to do.

If there was a God and he loved you he wouldn't care about what you do??? It's like saying I love my kids an want them to be happy so they can smoke pot and get laid whenever they want because tht make them happy an i want them happy..nooo??

I'd be surprised if you have ever been a parent. A loving Heavenly Father cares greatly what we, do and would not "approve of everything we want to do."

If someone loved someone they wouldn't care what they did.

Sorry, that's isn't true. Perhaps it seems that way when your a child, but mature people care greatly what their loved ones do. You still love them, but you disapprove of their behavior.

Do you think the guy who shot all those people at the elementary school has parents who approve of what he did just because they love him?

Actually that guy killed his mom first.

Yeah god would approve..... but his role for every woman isn't the same, just make sure that's what you want to do with your life. :)

God gave us free will to make our own choices. He did leave us the 10 commandments to follow. There are several scriptures in the Bible about a Godly woman. You can google it and it will give you the scripture to read.

Proverbs 31:10-31

10 Who can find a virtuous wife?
For her worth is far above rubies.
11 The heart of her husband safely trusts her;
So he will have no lack of gain.
12 She does him good and not evil
All the days of her life.
13 She seeks wool and flax,
And willingly works with her hands.
14 She is like the merchant ships,
She brings her food from afar.
15 She also rises while it is yet night,
And provides food for her household,
And a portion for her maidservants.
16 She considers a field and buys it;
From her profits she plants a vineyard.
17 She girds herself with strength,
And strengthens her arms.
18 She perceives that her merchandise is good,
And her lamp does not go out by night.
19 She stretches out her hands to the distaff,
And her hand holds the spindle.
20 She extends her hand to the poor,
Yes, she reaches out her hands to the needy.
21 She is not afraid of snow for her household,
For all her household is clothed with scarlet.
22 She makes tapestry for herself;
Her clothing is fine linen and purple.
23 Her husband is known in the gates,
When he sits among the elders of the land.
24 She makes linen garments and sells them,
And supplies sashes for the merchants.
25 Strength and honor are her clothing;
She shall rejoice in time to come.
26 She opens her mouth with wisdom,
And on her tongue is the law of kindness.
27 She watches over the ways of her household,
And does not eat the bread of idleness.
28 Her children rise up and call her blessed;
Her husband also, and he praises her:
29 “Many daughters have done well,
But you excel them all.”
30 Charm is deceitful and beauty is passing,
But a woman who fears the Lord, she shall be praised.
31 Give her of the fruit of her hands,
And let her own works praise her in the gates.

With the few details that you gave, I think God would approve of. Children are a blessing from The Lord. There is nothing wrong with being a housewife. Just remember to stay under submission to your husband. Make sure that his orders are godly.

God would certainly approve of you being a wife and mother! That's one of the biggest ministries there could be!

If that’s what you want to do the Bible gives no indication that God disapproves. There are many faithful women mentioned in the Bible that were homemakers and God valued them very much. Jesus’ mother Mary comes to mind as one who cared for her family and was obviously favored by God. In fact, although many people look down on women who are homemakers, the Bible puts great value on the “capable wife.” It speaks highly of her duties and industriousness at Proverbs 31:10-31. “Her value is far more than that of corals.” However, in verse 24 “a capable wife” would also engage in activities to bring in needed income. So at times it may be necessary for the wife to work. However, the most important thing is that the family is cared for, and as long as it puts no undue strain on the family then being a housewife is fine if that's your choice.

There is a brief article I think you'd enjoy called “What Is The Will of God for My Life?” at http://www.jw.org/en/bible-teachings/questions/will-of-god/. It has plenty of scriptures to consider in your Bible and takes less than 5 minutes to read. It can help you think more about what God’s Word says about His will for each of us. Hope it helps!
