Excerpt from The Mother's Magazine, Vol. 9: May, 1841

The mother whose language has been quoted, possessed all the evidence that her boy's heart had been changed which she could reasonably look for in a child of that age., He exhibited the feel ings of a christian when she presented the truth to his mind. If she exhibited the character of God, he loved and adored; if the su?'er ings of Christ, his gratitude was enkindled; if his own sins, he mourned and repented. Whenever any truth was presented to his mind the emotion appropriate to it was excited. The only subject of perplexity was, that so little constancy of feeling was manifested. Had he maintained the same state of mind from Monday morning till Saturday evening, which was seen in him while she conversed with him on the Sabbath, she would have had a good hope that he had been born again. Had he done this without the constant exer cise of parental care in keeping the truth constantly before his mind, we are free to say, he would have been a monster. No child can do this. Children, as was said inthe last number, act and feel with reference to visible, tangible objects; and if they are to be a?'ected by invisible or spiritual objects, those objects must be presented to their minds by other persons. Let parents properly appreciate the impo tency of their children in respect to the power of calling absent or spiritual objects before their minds, and then graduate their expec tations accordingly. They will then be better able to satisfy them selves whether or not their children have been the subjects of regeneration.
