A Happy Home, and
How to Make It

Where were the foundations of home laid?
"And the Lord God planted a garden eastward in Eden, and there He put the man whom He had formed." Gen. 2:8.

In carrying out His perfect plan, what was still needed?
"And the Lord God said, It is not good that the man should be alone; I will make him a help meet [or adapted] for him." Gen. 2:18.

Is the home complete without children?
"Lo, children are a heritage of the Lord." Ps. 127:3. "Children's children are the crown of old men, and the glory of children are their fathers." Prov. 17:6.

Does the happiness of home depend upon the abundance of things possessed?
"A man's life consisteth not in the abundance of the things which he possesseth." Luke 12:15. "Better is a dinner of herbs where love is, than a stalled ox and hatred therewith." Prov. 15:17.

May a home be undesirable under some circumstances?
"It is better to dwell in the wilderness, than with a contentious and an angry woman." Prov. 21:19.
