Great Quote about Raising Children

I'm just going to let the words speak for themselves.... (I read this at this blog)
"What we want to do with our children is not merely to control them and keep them in order, but to implant true principles deep in their hearts which shall rule their whole lives; to shape their character from within into Christlike beauty, and to make of them noble men and women, strong for battle and for duty. They are to be trained rather than governed. Growth of character, not merely good behavior, is the object of all home governing and teaching. Therefore the home influence is far more important than the home laws, and the parents' lives are of more moment than their teachings."-J.R. Miller, Home-Making

Isn't this such an amazing quote? I'm re-reading this book for the third time, and each time I read it I am so blessed by it! Congratulations on being able to "come home"! There will be days that will be extremely hard, but the rewards that come along with it are priceless!
