Motherhood quotes 3MOTHERHOOD QUOTES, NO. 3

"The most important person on earth is a mother. She cannot claim the honor of having built Notre Dame Cathedral. She need not. She has built something more magnificent than any cathedral–a dwelling for an immortal soul, the tiny perfection of her baby's body... The angels have not been blessed with such a grace. They cannot share in God's creative miracle to bring new saints to Heaven. Only a human mother can. Mothers are closer to God the Creator than any other human creature. God joins forces with mothers in performing this act of creation... What on God's earth is more glorious than this: to be a mother?"
~ Mindszenty

"Embrace your calling of motherhood. You live in the glory of who you were created to be when you are nurturing and nourishing your children."
~ Nancy Campbell

"When all is said, it is the mother, and the mother only, who is a better citizen than the soldier who fights for his country. The successful mother, the mother who does her part in rearing and training aright boys and girls who are to be the men and women of the next generation is of great use to the community and occupies, if only she would realize it, a more honorable as well as more important position than any man in it. She is more important by far than the successful statesman, or businessman or artist or scientist."
~ President Roosevelt

"Motherhood is the journey out of our self-centeredness."
~ Kate Marchiniak

"To be a mother is the grandest vocation in the world. No one being has a position of such power and influence. She holds in her hands the destiny of nations.
~ Hannah Whitall Smith

"You are involved in the greatest building program in the nation--building a strong family and a godly dynasty!"
~ Nancy Campbell

"Thinking of his mother, Billy Sunday, the famous preacher said, "Being a king, emperor, or president is mighty small potatoes compared to being a mother. Commanding an army is little more than sweeping a street compared with training a boy or girl. The mother of Moses did more for the world than all the kings that Egypt ever had. Oh, you wait until you reach the mountains of eternity, then read the mothers' names in God's Hall of Fame."
~ Billy Sunday

"I intend to make myself fit to become a mother and being that in every sense, I shall be fit for any destiny which God may impose upon me."
~ Catherine Booth (wife of William Booth, Founder of Salvation Army).

"The more children God gives to you, the more blessings come to your home. You are blessed, grandparents are blessed, the nation is blessed, future generations are blessed, and eternity is blessed."
~ Nancy Campbell

"You are as much serving God in looking after your own children, training them up in God's fear, minding the house, and making your household a church for God as you would be if you had been called to lead an army to battle for the Lord of Hosts."
~ Charles Spurgeon

"There is no higher height to which humanity can attain than that occupied by a converted, heaven-inspired praying mother."
~ Elizabeth Elliot

"Motherhood is not temporary as other careers. It lasts forever. Each child God gives to you is an eternal soul that will live forever."
~ Nancy Campbell
