They Call Her Blessed


A woman is seen in her most sacred and dignified character as wife and mother. She has great influence over the character of individuals, over the condition of families, and over the destinies of empires.

It is a fact that many of the 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 devoted 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.

--Excerpt from Daughters of Destiny by Noelle Wheeler Goforth
