There she may find her vocation and fight her battles,
and there she may learn the reality and the earnestness of life.”

to love their husbands, to love their children,
To be discreet, chaste, keepers at home, good,
obedient to their own husbands,
that the word of God be not blasphemed."

Keepers at Home
Oh, the sweet sentiments of home!
What a blessing to be a "keeper"
where your dear ones roam.
You have the honor to govern the place that all hold dear,
Embrace this beautiful role with love,
beauty, godliness and great care.
