Passing on the Legacy of Biblical Womanhood

Taken from Biblical Womanhood in the Home

Read Chapter 9 (How to Raise Feminine Daughters) from Biblical Womanhood in the Home

"It is the sentiments you let drop occasionally, it is the conversation they overhear, when playing in the corner of the room, which has more effect than many things which are addressed to them directly. . . . Your example will educate them—your conversation with your friends—the business they see you transact—the likings and dislikings you express—these will educate them . . . the education of circumstances. . . . is of more constant and powerful effect, and of far more consequence to the habit, than that which is direct and apparent. This education goes on at every instant of time; it goes on like time—you can neither stop it nor turn its course." - John Angell James
