My son, hear the instruction of thy father, and forsake not the law of thy mother: For they shall be an ornament of grace unto thy head, and chains about thy neck (Pro.1:8,9).

All Hail to the Queen, unsung and unseen
Who gives and keeps giving again!
All Hail to the Queen, to the mother who's been
A heroine again and again!
All Hail to the Queen, whose job has been
The highest & hardest `mongst men!
All Hail to the Queen!--To the Mother unseen.
All Hail to the mother of men!

A woman spends nine months of her life and many more years taking care of the results of two minutes work on the part of the man.

When I was a boy of 14, my father was so ignorant I could hardly stand to have the old man around. But when I got to be 21, I was astonished at how much he had learned in 7 years.--Mark Twain.

Any parent whose children don't fear him as well as love him, is no parent!--Like God, we not only love God, but we fear Him!

You're not supposed to commit the care of your child to a teacher or nanny or guardian or governess unless you trust them enough to give them the authority to teach'm and train'm right and make'm behave!

That's the worst kind of a reflection on parenthood, parents who can't keep their kids under control!

Thank You Lord for children! Help us to prize every one as precious.

Children are a big job, but with a big job comes a big reward and with big responsibility comes lots of benefits.

You women have more love and mercy than us men. That's true, and it's illustrated by Mothers with children. Mothers always seem more patient and merciful.

As sons grow older, Fathers grow smarter.

The reason many parents no longer lead their children in the right direction is because they aren't going that way themselves.

The bravest battle that ever was fought,
Shall I tell you where and when?
On the maps of the World you will find it not,
It was fought by the mothers of men.
13. Who ran to help me when I fell,
And would some pretty story tell,
Or kiss the place to make it well?
--My Mother!

The hand that rocks the cradle
Is the hand that rules the World!

As beauty is reflected by a looking too is the love of a mother mirrored in her children's smiles.

I have seen a mother at a crib, so I know what love is.

Even if a mother has never witnessed or won a soul, if she's never done a thing but have babies, she has created new lives and new souls that will last forever and has helped in the process of their creation by the Lord.

A mother has done her bit to contribute the most priceless, precious, valuable thing in the whole Kingdom of God, an immortal soul for the Kingdom of Christ forever! Children are forever!

You're never an adult until you have a child of your own.

Yesterday's kids are today's parents!

A mother needs a little vacation from her children once in awhile.

A Mother is like a Goddess to her children.

Every mother is a physical beautiful conception, representation, picture or likeness of the Holy Spirit--like a father is a likeness of God, and a son is a likeness of Jesus.

Every child has got to have a father, even if it's not his own!

That's what makes a father wonderful, that willingness to sacrifice himself and his strength and his time to help take care of the mother and the child.

I've never seen a child yet that didn't need a father or a father image, somebody to play the part of a father. God made children to need both mother & father.

Fathers are usually the disciplinarians of the family, who won't let the kids get away with anything and who really sock it to them!

The Holy Spirit is like a Mother, sweet, loving and gentle, but as we grow older we're apt to need a father's image, God Himself, and be more afraid of Him and His Word of correction and judgments and His very heavy hand that enforces strict rules.

I tried to spend at least an hour or two with my kids every day reading and teaching them the Bible, and I think they now show the good results!

If God gives a child, what difference does it make what instrument God used! Even if you aren't the flesh father, if you are the husband you are responsible!

That child is part of both of you, and it is your job to take care of it, to love it, to provide for it and to give it the love that only a mother and a father can give.

If the original father is undeserving and unworthy, God often chooses another father.

Your love for the child is what proves whether you're worthy of being married and being a father and mother!

When God makes His choice and gives you a child, God has chosen to make you a mother and a father, and that makes you a husband and a wife!

How else can two become one more than in one child?

. Motherhood takes the strength of Samson, the wisdom of Solomon, the patience of Job, the faith of Abraham, the insight of Daniel and the courage of David!

Don't go around talking about your children and my children and making some kind of difference between them! They are our children and we are one Family and all our children are just as much mine as they are yours!

You mothers are the ones that are molding the future and making the World!

The World of tomorrow is what the mothers of today make it, according to the way they raise their children.

God can really deal with you through your own children.

We really need a lot more love and patience and prayer and reasoning with our children.

It takes time and patience and understanding and lots of real love to train a child.

If you have reared your children right, they'll not go astray, or at least, for not very long.

Sometimes they depart for a little while but they'll always sooner or later come back to the Lord if you've trained them right.

We'd like to protect our children all their lives and never have any trouble or sickness or accidents, but would this ever teach them anything?

While you're taking care of those children you're helping God's Kingdom come on Earth!

I don't see how any mother of a family of several small children can possibly do anything else but train them and take care of them and her husband and her home.

When God gives you children, then your first duty to God is to those children! That is God's work.

If you can't change the World, maybe your children will!--Train them to.

It's usually the parents' fault when children catch diseases or colds.

Even if you have eight or nine children you can still give each one something special, a special something that means a lot to them.

There are times when you have to show each child that they're special, and not treat each one exactly the same all the time.
