“Timing is everything, in education as in many other fields. It’s not enough to teach well. You have to teach well to kids who are ready to learn, kids who are developmentally ‘ripe’ for learning.”

Daily Food for Thought

“Righteous love is the secure foundation of a successful marriage. It is the primary cause of contented, well-developed children.

Who can justly measure the extent of the righteous influence of a mother’s love? What enduring fruits will result from seeds of truth a mother carefully plants and lovingly cultivates in the fertile soil of her child’s trusting mind and heart? When a mother is consistently in the home, at least during the hours the children are predominantly there, she can detect the individual needs of each child and provide ways to satisfy them. Her divinely given instincts help sense a child’s special talents and unique capacities so as to nurture and strengthen them.”
