Our Responsibility

As I go through each day walking hand in hand with my six daughters, watching as they grow into the young ladies that God created them to be, I realize that the one thing that is vital to being a successful homemaker is something that is out of my power to give.

There is no benefit in nourishing food, beautiful surroundings or graceful manners if it ends in an eternity apart from God.
