The Kitchen Table ~ A Mother's Pulpit

The Children's Tea by Helen Allingham

“Many wise and true sermons are preached us everyday by unconscious ministers in street, school, office, or home; even a fair table may become a pulpit, if it can offer the good and helpful words which are never out of season.”
~ Louisa May Alcott, Little Women

"You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your might. And these words that I command you today shall be on your heart. You shall teach them diligently to your children, and shall talk of them when you sit in your house, and when you walk by the way, and when you lie down, and when you rise..."
~ Deuteronomy 6:7-9 


  1. We have so many good conversations during meal time, morning, noon, or night. What a great observation!:)

  2. Such a wonderful quote - thank you, dear JES, for sharing this with us :) Have a lovely day - hugs!

  3. So true, and the children never forget those sermons. Love the painting, too.
    Have a great weekend.
