Early in the twentieth century, attacks against America’s Christian origin began in earnest. Throughout world history, when one nation conquered another, the history, heroes, and heroines of the conquered nation were quickly removed and replaced with their counterparts from the conquering nation. In this way, the conquered people were compelled to forget their heritage. Christian Origin of Mother’s Day

Ann Maria Reeves Jarvis

The attack upon America’s Christian origin has not been mounted by a conquering nation, but largely organized from within by individuals and groups that despise the Christian faith. In the 1920s, W. E. Woodward began an attack upon the moral character of George Washington that continues into the twenty-first century. In fact, the character of America’s Founding Fathers has generally been under assault for decades. By attacking the Christian character of the Founding Fathers, secularists and the irreligious hope to undermine any confidence in the Christian faith to exercise a positive influence upon society. Christian Origin of Mother’s Day

One of the ways secularists and the irreligious further undermine America’s Christian origin is by denying Christians their role of influence in important social contributions. By consulting secular sources, one seldom learns of the Christian influence upon important events, observances, and other significant cultural components. This is also very true regarding holidays and other well-known observances.

Given the aggressive attempts to deny Christians their rightful place in the annals of American and global history, no one should be surprised at the efforts to confuse and disparage the Christian origin of Mother’s Day in America. While this booklet makes no attempt to be exhaustive in its discussion of the origin of Mother’s Day, it does provide a thumbnail sketch of the important individuals and events that led to the rise of this important holiday within the United States. Within its pages is the evidence necessary to lay claim to the Christian origin of Mother’s Day in America and celebrate America’s Christian heritage with deep gratitude.
