Excerpt from The Latter-Day Saints' Millennial Star, Vol. 95: October 19, 1933
It is in the atmosphere of the home that youth receives the impressions that last through life, not only in the things that are taught, in the precepts that are advocated, but in the examples that are set and in the very atmosphere that prevails. I presume that there has seldom appeared a more striking demonstration of the vitality of home inﬂuence than came forth a few years ago in a little book that was entitled, The Jukes Family.
This small volume purported to be an authentic record of two families that came from Europe a hundred years ago. One of the families was that of Jonathan Edwards, the noted evangelist, who left England with a large family of about a dozen and settled in New England. There is recounted in the history of that family the remarkable achievements of the men and women who had come from it; there had been eminent statesmen. Federal and state officials, judges, ministers, doctors, school teachers, and many others who had contributed inestimably to the welfare of the communities where they had lived. And it was pointed out in justifiable commendation of this large family that there was no record of any one of that family having cost the state a dollar for criminal detention or for insanity or pauperism. The family had been an asset and not a liability.
