"When parents display their own belief in God, children learn that a life based on faith provides a firm foundation. Parents are more credible when setting rules and goals if they can offer a grander scheme, a source of comfort, and a sense of the eternal. And children who see their parents submitting to God will be more willing to submit to their parents' rules as well." -- The American Family (with Diane Medved), 1996, p 275

"The most needed value in America now is gratitude -- because there is so much to be grateful for. Grateful to our Founding Fathers, to our families, to our friends and neighbors. And most of all, to God" -- The American Family (with Diane Medved), 1996, p 277
