No Static Page setting in Settings - Reading for setting home page

If you are having problems with your Settings > Reading section in Wordpress and finding it does not show an option to choose a static page to set as your home page

This issue happens when you do not have any pages published inside your Wordpress site.  All you need to do is find the page that you want to use by going to the Pages section on the left sidebar and then edit the page and switch the published status to "Published"
