Here's a shout out to all you moms who might be tempted to think you're not making a difference in this world:
Who can measure the long-term effects of nurturing helpless infants, supervising wandering toddlers, discipling self-willed children, and counseling self-absorbed adolescents? Of family outings planned, traditions built, memories made, books read, songs sung, Scripture taught? That's why motherhood belongs under the heading, "Engage the World"; no one shapes generations or fashions cultures more than mothers. ~ Jeff Purswell, Worldliness, (edited by C.J. Mahaney, p. 159).
