A phenomenological approach was selected to study seven LDS women's experiences of deciding to achieve doctoral degrees as mothers of young children. As a theoretical perspective, Women's Ways of Knowing informed this study; the women seemed to occupy a constructed knowing position as they participated in making meaning from church directives concerning their lives. The women appeared to express that spiritual promptings and deep personal desire were most influential in their decisions. Encouragement from family was also emphasized. The women faced challenges of balancing multiple roles while meeting church and family members' expectations concerning their perceived responsibilities. The women expressed that their greatest benefit from achieving their degree was the influence doing so had on their children.greatest rewards of the PhD was being able to support my daughter well. So many women are not able to get the high paying or the well paying jobs and so they do the two and three jobs which give them limited time to spend with their child.
