"As wife and mother, a woman is seen in her most sacred and dignified character, as such she has great influence over the characters of individuals, over the condition of families, and over the destinies of empires. It is a fact that many of our noblest patriots, our most profound scholars, and our holiest ministers, were stimulated to their excellence and usefulness by those holy principles which they derived in early years from pious mothers.
Our mothers are our earliest instructors, and they have an influence over us, the importance of which, for time and eternity, surpasses the power of language to describe.
Every mother should be a Sabbath School teacher. Her own children should be her class; and her home should be her school house. Then her children will bless her for her tenderness and care; for her pious instructions, her fervent prayers, and the holy example."
