Resurrection Means Victory


Neil McKinlay Consider and Ponder in the
American Christian Home

by Verna M. Hall

Who should teach and learn America’s Christian history? In America, Christian homes played a major role in teaching the love of Christ and the Hand of God in our American history. Since the educational goal of the American Christian home in a republic is to build the foundation of American Christian character, is it surprising that patriotic mothers contributed to the nation’s independence? “Patriotic mothers nursed the infancy of freedom. Their counsels and their prayers mingled with the deliberations that resulted in a nation’s assertion of its independence. They animated the courage, and confirmed the self-devotion of those who ventured all in the common cause.”

The hBattle of LexingtonA Mother's Influence: Lesson XVII, McGuffey's Eclectic Fourth Reader
"My mother began my education very early; I was her only child, and she a widow; you may easily imagine, therefore, how eager she must have been for my improvement. She tried every means that love, faith, and patience could suggest, to instruct me in my lessons and my duties. In the latter she was not disappointed. I may say, without boasting, that I was an obedient boy, for I loved my mother so well, that it was a pleasure to do her bidding..."

The hBattle of LexingtonRegarding the Widow Mary Washington, Mother of George Washington
by Verna M. Hall

"Tradition gives an interesting picture of the widow, with her little flock gathered round her, as was her daily wont, reading to them lessons of religion and morality out of some standard work. Her favorite volume was Sir Matthew Hale’s* Contemplations, Moral and Divine. The admirable maxims therein contained, for outward action as well as self-government, sank deep into the mind of George, and, doubtless, had a great influence in forming his character. They certainly were exemplified in his conduct throughout life. This mother’s manual, bearing his mother’s name, Mary Washington, written with her own hand, was ever preserved by him with filial care, and may still be seen in the archives of Mount Vernon. A precious document! Let those who wish to know the moral foundation of his character consult its pages." 1
