Stepping Heavenward by Elizabeth Prentiss (10)

The real test for a woman…”is the seclusion of her own home. There she may find her vocation and fight her battles, and there she may learn the reality and the earnestness of life.”

Isn’t this true. A friend confessed to me that she really found out what a sinful, selfish person she was when child number two came along. Having one child stretches us. We pride ourselves on serving our child. But when number two, three, four, etc. came along and we realize how much time we were serving self.
