It Takes a Mother to Raise a Village

“…true feminine ambition focused on the training of future leaders who fully understand and can accomplish their missions is the greatest challenge and opportunity of our time or any time. It is not enough to train up one’s own children. The true mother must also train and properly raise the whole community in which her children grow up, looking ahead three or four generations and acting accordingly. This is not a government village raising the child, but a mother raising her own children, her future sons- and daughters-in-law, and communities of great and good leaders who will ensure the liberty of her grandchildren. Not, “It takes a village to raise a child,” but, “It takes a mother to raise a village.”’
– TJEd Phases of Learning (h/t Laura Ricketts)
