We have enough of those...

"The modern challenge to motherhood is the eternal challenge-

that of being a godly woman.

The very phrase sounds strange in our ears.

We never hear it now.

We hear about every other type of women: beautiful women, smart women, sophisticated women, career women, talented women, divorced women.

But so seldom do we hear of a godly woman - or of a godly man either, for that matter.

I believe women come nearer to fulfilling their God given function in the home than anywhere else. It is a much nobler thing to be a good wife, then to be Miss America.

It is a greater achievement to establish a Christian home then it is to produce a second rate novel filled with filth.

It is a far, far better thing in the realms of morals to be old fashioned, then to be ultra-modern.

The world has enough women who know how to be smart.

It needs women who are willing to be simple.

The world has enough women who know how to be brilliant.

It needs some who will be brave.

The world has enough women who are popular.

It needs more who are pure.

We need women, and men, too, who would rather be morally right then socially correct."

- Peter Marshall,

former Chaplain the the United States Senate
