The Messy, Grace-Filled Journey from Working Professional to Stay-at-Home Mom

You don’t have to have it all together to live the life you’re called to live

A former marketing executive turned elementary school teacher, Jen Babakhan already knew something about career transitions when she traded her teaching career for motherhood. She prepared for her new role by reading pregnancy books, yet she felt empty when trying to navigate the isolation that came with leaving her career behind. Detoured is the book she wished she had.

With honesty and an open heart, Jen shares the grief she experienced leaving her vocation behind and unpacks the falsehoods she believed about “having it all”. As she walks you through her journey, she shows you how to…

  • confront your own misplaced sense of identity and learn who you are in Christ
  • gain confidence and peace in your decision to hit pause on your career
  • find you are not alone in your motherhood journey, whatever it looks like
Motherhood doesn’t offer performance evaluations or a pat on the back for a job well done. But when you follow the path God calls you to, you gain so much more.
