Nebraska Family and Community Education Club Creed:

I BELIEVE a nation is as strong as the communities of which it is composed,

I BELIEVE my community is as strong as its homes.

I BELIEVE as a homemaker, my responsibilities are:

  • To Guard the morals and ideas of my family;
  • the mental, physical, and spiritual health in my home.
  • To be myself without conceit, envy or false pride, that

I may seek and appreciate the better things in life.

To grow by study, observation and participation in the affairs of the home, community, nation, and world.

 To share what I have in talents, time, and material wealth with others.

I BELIEVE in my job as a homemaker, a magnificent challenge, with heartwarming compensations.

--Sharon Club, Lancaster County
