In a period of twenty-one years, Susanna Wesley (1669-1742) bore nineteen children. Ten survived infancy. Two grew up to be influential church leaders whose legacies live on almost three centuries later.
This biography recounts the story of a woman who used her strong leadership and faith to raise well-educated and spiritually disciplined children. Her unwavering devotion to God and family in the face of grief, poverty, and a sometimes difficult marriage is a tremendous inspiration. Adam Clarke wrote of her, "I have been aquatinted with many pious females Susanna Wesley has excelled them all."
