"With so many problems facing Mothers, we need to work on having a peaceful attitude. Of course we are going to get upset, and worry about things. If we learn to seriously give things over to the Lord, and not worry about everything, we will have an easier time. To have a happy home is going to take a daily fight. We will fight bad news, irritating people, messes, accidents and sickness. These fights are in the mind. We fight off the negative, and work on remaining steady through it all, like the hand that does not shake in the midst of trauma. This takes practice."
"I've been thinking a lot about material goods. Television is full of nice houses, nice cars, and people spending money on things that seem like necessities. I see people all around me with newer homes good paying jobs, and cash with which to splurge. I have to shake this all off because that is not my value system. I crave a spiritual life with fewer possessions. My permanent home is in heaven. I pour all my energy on my children, my husband, and my family, seeking my reward in the next life. ...Somewhere along the line, the American Dream spiraled out of control. It is not about being surrounded by fine things. It is about having a HOME and a FAMILY."And this sample, which I consider to be classic Mrs White:
"It is raining and pleasant this early morning. The lush Vermont landscape is inspiring. It makes one want to shut off all the technology and enjoy the pleasant tasks of homemaking. I will sweep and polish by lamplight in my old country kitchen. Our little homeschool will start in just a few minutes. While my teenage student is working on math, I will do some baking as I listen to the rain falling and the birds singing. I will do a little laundry and delight in the folding and the sorting. It is lovely to put out fresh towels and do those little touches that make this place a home."
