Susanna Wesley lived in England during the 1700s and married a pastor, with whom she had 19 children. Wow!
Despite her busy family life, Susanna was committed to spiritual instruction and developed a system or method for teaching her children about faith and Christian living. Her 14th child, John Wesley, would go on to become a pastor himself and develop a method for spiritual development that he shared with thousands of people. This method would become the foundation for the Methodist movement, which greatly impacted the United States.
Susanna’s dedication to spiritual instruction and her commitment to her family had far-reaching effects, demonstrating the power and influence of a mother’s love and methods. Her story inspires mothers everywhere, showing that their efforts can have an impact that extends far beyond their immediate family.
