THE LABORATORY OF LIFE
PROVERBS 31: 10 - 31
JESUS CHRIST, who can to fulfill the law, set an example for
each of us regarding honoring His mother. Even amid the agony of
the cross He provided for His mother.
Recently a television interviewer asked a former Mrs. America if
the greatest thrill of her life wasn't walking down the runway

and my husband from work and to hear them greet me as 'Mom'".
Motherhood is a greater role than Mrs. America. Today in paying

that 40% of the teenage girls who marry have already jeopardized
the joy of motherhood and are expectant mothers at the time of
their marriage. Of these, one out of 3 will be divorced in less

In a recent year 500,000 girls were married under 18 years of
age, 20,000 were between the ages of 12 and 15.
