Ref: A Comprehensive History of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints - Century I/Volume I - In Six Volumes by B. H. Roberts (Author of -Outlines of Ecclesiastical History; Doctrine of Deity (a discussion); New Witnesses for God (3 vols.); Defense of the Faith and the Saints (2 vols.); Joseph Smith the Prophet Teacher; The Falling Away, 16 Radio Addresses, 1929; etc., etc. Chapter II - The Ancestry of Joseph Smith, The Prophet II.

She, besides instructing them in the various branches of an ordinary education, was in the habit of calling them together both morning and evening, and teaching them to pray; meanwhile urging upon them the necessity of love towards each other, as well as devotional feeling towards him who made them. In this manner my first children became confirmed in habits of piety, gentleness, and reflection, which afforded great assistance in guiding those who came after them, into the same happy chanel. The education of my children would have been a more difficult task if they had not inherited much of their mother's excellent disposition."
