Let us return to our home and rebuild a vision for
godly descendants that stretches into the future...
If we want wholehearted womanhood to become
reality again, we must be willing to forsake
the glittering paths of fame, recognition and celebrity.
If we want beautiful girlhood for our young ladies--
a time of innocence, joy and delight in service--
then we must be willing to demonstrate it in our
homes and live it beautifully for the watching world.
We are daughters of the King!
We are building a kingdom that will have no end.
We are shaping cultures--for good or ill--as we go about our daily tasks.
Let us purpose to follow Christ wholeheartedly, embracing
the servanthood He demonstrated to us.
Let us purpose to put to death the grasping desire for fame
that our godless culture has raised up as its idol.
Let us be women of purpose and vision, serving Christ from
hearts that overflow with love for His people and for the lost.

Queen of the Home by Jen McBride
"She looks well to the ways of her household
and does not eat the bread of idleness."
