Although the women of the United States are confined within the narrow circle of domestic life, and their situation is, in some respects, one of extreme dependence, I have nowhere seen woman occupying a loftier position; and if I were asked... in which I have spoken of so many important things done by Americans, to what the singular prosperity and growing strength of that people ought mainly to be attributed, I should reply, To the superiority of their women.

Why "republican mother"?

I named this blog The republican Mother because that is a description of me and countless others out there who seek to guide their children into a saving knowledge of Jesus Christ, prepare them for academic excellence, and instill in them a sense of duty and patriotism.

It's my goal to illustrate how America is a Christian nation regardless of how many Christians actually populate it. I will also explain how Christianity, education, family life, and a free society are bound inextricably together.

The women of 200 years ago (before state-controlled compulsory schooling) understood these principles, and while they could not vote, they nevertheless instilled them in the citizens of that age. A republican mother serves as an example of both self-sufficiency and dependency on the Lord Jesus Christ.
