"The modern challenge to motherhood is the eternal
challenge – that of being a godly woman. The very phrase
sounds strange in our ears. We never hear it now. We
hear about every other type of women:
But so seldom do we hear of a godly woman -- or of a
godly man either, for that matter.
I believe women come nearer to fulfilling their God
given function in the home than anywhere else. It is a
much nobler thing to be a good wife, than to be Miss
It is a greater achievement to establish a Christian
home than it is to produce a second rate novel filled
It is a far, far better thing in the realms of morals
to be old fashioned, than to be ultra-modern. The world
has enough women who know how to be smart. It needs
women who are willing to be simple.
The world has enough women who know how to be
brilliant. It needs some who will be brave.
The world has enough women who are popular. It needs
more who are pure.
We need women, and men, too, who would rather be
morally right than socially correct."
