Women underwent the profoundest changes in the nineteenth- century,. As men found work away from home and farm, the woman's role in the family was exalted. Mothers became the center of the home. Responsible for making the home a haven of love and comfort set apart from the pressures of the world.
The role of wife and mother became the undying thread that held together everything and was interwoven into the fabric of everyday life.
"Honor thy father and thy mother; which is the first commandment with promise; That is may be well with thee, and that thou mayest live long on the earth."
The future of the child is always the work of the mother.
