Queen of the Home {7}

"But may not woman, in every way in her power - benefit society by her talents and influence?
Certainly, in every legitimate way. Her sphere is clearly assigned to her by God....
Woman can be spared from the lecturer's chair, the platform of general convocation, and the scene of public business;
but she cannot be spared from the hearth of her husband and the circle of her children!
Substitutes can be found for her in the one, but not in the other.
In the bosom of domestic privacy she fulfills with truest dignity and faithfulness the first and highest obligations of her sex."


  1. Such true words. There is no substitute for her.

  4. How very beautiful and true. Thank you. Praying for your comfort.

    1. Thanks so much for the prayers, dear friend. And you are in mine.

  5. I have never regretted the choice to become a mother. Even though in the beginning, I felt unqualified for the position...I embraced it fully and now, 18yrs later, I am still enjoying it. More so now than earlier. The connection with my children is stronger now, since my whole heart is present.

    I do enjoy reading this excerpts Lisa...thank you.


    1. I have never regretted it either, Maria. It's my God-given calling. And I am blessed because of it. :)

    2. Hello Lisa and thank you for stopping by my blog. It is always nice to 'visit' and discover yet a new corner of the world!
      I live on a tiny island off the Pacific NW coastline and the Net is my way of reaching out!
      I have been blessed with two beautiful children and I thank God each day for them!
      May He be with you and yours always,

    3. Nice to "meet" you, Noelle. :)
