Quote of the Day

"From all that I have read of history and government of human life and manners, I have drawn this conclusion, that the manners of women [and by this he doesn't mean table manners or etiquette. He means the lifestyle, the demeanor of women] were the most infallible barometer to ascertain the degree of morality and virtue of a nation. The Jews, the Greeks, the Romans, the Swiss, the Dutch all lost their public spirit and their republican forms of government [as in their representative forms of government] when they lost the modesty and domestic virtues of their women".                          
            - John Adams, second President of the United States

This quote is used in Wednesday's broadcast of Revive Our Hearts titled, "Develop Virtue by Being Rather than Doing" Here she covers the sixth 'We Will' statement made in the True Woman Manifesto, which states: 

"We will seek to glorify God by cultivating such virtues as purity, modesty, submission, meekness, and love".

She talks about why these virtues carry a negative connotation to the younger women of today, the focus on duty and rules, and our influence (as women) on other women and on our nation as a whole. 

The Bible tells us we are the heart of the home. If the heart of the home has gone bad, then what does that say about our nation, and who's (partially) responsible for it?

I have already signed the Manifesto online, and have printed a copy which I signed and keep in my office.
I will be attending the True Woman Conference (in Ft Worth). Won't you join me?
