Mothers, mothers! Our world is in need of mothers! I inquired of the angel of God why the youth of the present age were generally so destitute of moral force and true virtue. The answer came, "For want of mothers to educate and bring up their children in the nurture and admonition of the Lord." At what age shall children learn the duties of practical life? At six years? The answer was given, "The education of the child must commence from its birth." Neglect their instruction six years, and six years are lost. The best impression may be made upon a child during the first seven years of its life.
