A dear friend recently sent me a copy of this article about Dr. Ben Carson's wife, Candy Carson. I hadn't heard anything about Mrs. Carson in the media, and came away thinking what a positive, refreshing, and inspiring individual she is!
I recognized her immediately. Through their work, both professionally and charitably, my parents made sure when we were growing up that their children were
surrounded by women like Candy Carson. Such so-called, "old-fashioned values," were what made our country great and gave Americans a steady, consistent moral compass. In the recent words of Patrice Lewis at World Net Daily*, "[Men] make the living, then return home to the person who is making the living worthwhile."
Mrs. Carson shows, many women, in addition to raising their families,
also accomplish great things outside the home. But, as she also clearly
understands, the wife or mother is the heart of the home. And America
is the greatest nation on Earth for women to have the choice and resources to achieve their greatest potential, either at home or in any other area they so desire.
firmly believe gratitude is the mother of many other virtues. Candy
Carson is grateful for the many ways in which God has blessed her
life. What a privilege it would be to have a woman of such
graciousness, a man of such integrity, and a couple of such strong faith in the White House!
God Bless America, indeed!
