"Having a place to go - is a home. Having someone to love - is a family.

Having both - is a blessing. "

Jesus said in Matthew 22:37 "Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart,

and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind."

"The most effective guard against delinquency is a father who is at the same time

impressions of our marriage and home.

We are determining the quality of future marriages

by strengthening the quality of our own."

[J. Allan Peterson)]

"Blessed is the Mother...

Who can hold onto her children while letting them go;

Who puts a tranquil home ahead of an immaculate house;

Who knows a kind act will be remembered longer than an easy word;

Who really believes that prayer changes things;

Whose faith in the future sweetens the present;

Whose Bible never needs dusting; and

Whose sense of humor is alive and well."
