Why Im a Stay At Home Momma

"Children are like trees. When they are young, their lives can be shaped and directed, usually with ever so little effort. Said the writer of Proverbs, 'Train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it' (22:6). That training finds its roots in the home. There will be little of help from other sources. Do not depend on government to help in this darkening situation. Barbara Bush, wife of former United States president George Bush, spoke wisely when in Wellesley, Massachusetts, in 1990 she addressed the Wellesley College graduating class and said, 'Your success as a family, our success as society, depends not on what happens at the White House, but on what happens inside your house.' "

Gordon B. Hinckley, "Four Simple Things to Help Our Families and Our Nations," Ensign, Sept. 1996, 7

This right here explaines why I am a stay at home momma and I homeschool my kids. I agree with this quote ABSOLUTELY!!!!!!
Love, JL
