Mothers of Young Children


"Oh, Mothers of young children, I bow before you in reverence. Your work is most holy. You are fashioning the destinies of immortal souls. The powers folded up in the little ones that you hushed to sleep in your bosoms last night, are powers that shall exist forever. You are preparing them for their immortal destiny and influence. Be faithful. Take up your sacred burden reverently. Be sure that your life is sweet and clean."

-JR Miller, a 19th century preacher, The Family

That is so encouraging . . . I have three young children and it is easy to grow weary and forget the privilege I have to raise these ones for the Lord.

On another note, I really like the pictures that you use on your website. Could you tell me the artist?

Thank you,
Cinnamon
