Such as Queens and Empresses



Mothers and daughters, wives and sisters, remember that you have the making of the future of this great country, and rise at once to your high and holy duty. Remember that you must make that future, whether you will or not. We are all what you make us.

Ah! Throw away your weakening follies of fashion, and soul-famine, and rise to the level where God intended you should be, and make every one of your homes, from this day, schools of true politeness and tender affection.

Take those little curly-headed boys, and teach them all you would have them to be. They will be just such men, and will go forth to bless the world, and crown you with a glory such as queens and empresses never dreamed of.

Exercise your power now, and you shall reap the fruit in your ripe age.



-Excerpt from Daughters of Destiny by Noelle Wheeler

I love what she says about 'rising to the level where God intended us to be' Oh, imagine what could happen if Christian families all over the world determined to do this and lived lives 'worthy of the calling.'
I thank God for families like yours, you are already reaping the harvest with so much more to come.
