The situation of each Latter-day Saint woman is unique, with different challenges, skills, abilities, and life situations. Some are full-time moms and others are full-time in the workforce. Many divide their lives into periods with a different focus on home, family, and work.
Latter-day Saint women who work part-time or full-time often have to juggle schedules for work, school, daycare, church activities, extracurricular activities, family activities, meals, and even sleep. Studies show that the majority of LDS mothers with children in the home are also in the labor force.
