It is interesting what may be found after someone passes away. My Mother
loved gospel music, so it was no surprise to find a copy of “Revival
Songs” among her personal things along with her Bible. But it was

Among the stated objectives of the class was to be better American and
world citizens; promote love of home and church; to train hands to be
busy, heads to be clear, and hearts to be warm; to know the past, to
understand the present, and to judge the future more accurately. There
were quotations from historical and literary figures, excerpts from
poems, and verses from the Bible. The class was on American History, but
its purpose was on strength of character.
