Home is the true wife's kingdom. There, first of all places, she must be strong and Christly. She may touch life outside in many ways, if she can do it without slighting the duties that are hers within her own doors. But if any calls for her service must be declined, they should not be the duties of her home. These are hers alone, and not another's.

Very largely does the wife hold in her hands, as a sacred trust—the happiness and the highest good of the hearts that nestle in the home. The best husband—the truest, the noblest, the gentlest, the richest-hearted—cannot make his home happy, if his wife is not in every reasonable sense, a helpmate to him.

In the last analysis, home happiness depends on the wife.

Her spirit gives the home its atmosphere.

Her hands fashion its beauty.

Her heart makes its love.

And the end is so worthy, so noble, so divine—that no wife should consider any price too great to pay—to be the light, the joy, the blessing, the inspiration of her home!

The woman who makes a sweet, beautiful home, filling it with love and prayer and purity—is doing something better than anything else her hands could find to do beneath the skies!

"An excellent wife who can find? She is far more precious than jewels!" Proverbs 31:10
