  7. I really like your blog and those quotes.


  8. There is a book entitled "Female Piety" that was written by John Angell James in the 1800's. It is a wonderful book.

    In this book is a chapter to young mothers. I read it often when my children were small. I just pulled it off the shelf, so as to read it again. Here are a few quotes from that chapter:

    "What associations with all that is lovely are connected with that blissful word, a mother! To that sound the tenderest emotions of the human heart, whether in the bosom of the savage or the sage, wake up."

    "O woman! your child's welfare for all time and all eternity too, depends much upon your conduct towards him during the period he is under your influence in the first years of his being."

    "Yes, with every infant born into the family comes the injunction from God, 'Take this child and bring it up for me.' It is one of God's own children by creation, sent to be trained up in the way he should go, that is in the nurture and admonition of the Lord. Those parents who neglect the religious education of their children, whatever else they may impart, are more guilty than Herod. He slew the children of others, they slay their own. He slew only the body, they the soul. He slew them by hired assassins, they slay them themselves."


  9. This is such a beautiful post! You are always such an inspiration to me. I hope you don't mind that I spoke about you & your blog in one of my recent posts and linked to your site in my sidebar. Keep up the blessed work, you are a blessing to many.

  10. June,
    What a lovely website. I'm afraid I've spent way too much time here. I've been looking for photos/paintings like this. Can you tell me what your source is?

  11. June

    I would recommend your blog just for the pictures. Your site with its pictures, quotes, and articles, etc, breaths passionate femininity - just what we need to recover. I of course have to learn the opposite - godly masculinity.
