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



Paper Back Book


When becoming Mom is your newest career transition, Detoured is the book you've been waiting for. Motherhood doesn’t offer performance evaluations or pats on the back. But when you follow the path God calls you to, you gain so much more.

Does having it all even exist?

Former marketing executive turned third-grade teacher, Jen Babakhan never expected her transition to stay-at-home mom would bring feelings of grief and loss. She felt God was calling her to be home with her newborn son, and she wanted to be with him—yet she felt conflicted about giving up her career.

Detoured chronicles the often-bumpy path Jen took to contentment and peace in her new role at home. She honestly shares the struggles and joys of being home, and the truth she uncovered about “having it all.” She invites you to walk beside her on this journey and find:

  • a new confidence and peace in your decision to place your career on hold
  • an invitation to discover your true identity that has nothing to do with your job title
  • a sense of community and the knowledge that you are not alone in your motherhood journey

Stay-at-home motherhood isn’t easy—but it can be the most beautiful detour you ever take.
