A House is not a home unless it contains food and fire for the mind as well as the body. (Benjamin Franklin, early American writer of proverbs)

A responsible parent or guardian does everything possible to provide for the health of his family by supplying their physical needs. But it takes more than physical provision to make a house a home. That happens when the hearts and minds of the family are stimulated, and emotional, intellectual, and spiritual needs are met. That home is both healthy and happy.

If any provide not for his own, and especially for those of his own house, he hath denied the faith, and is worse than an infidel (1 Timothy 5:8).
