The Delight of Discovering the Unsung Heroine
Does it matter that their names don’t ring a bell of fame as resounding as those of Daniel or Joshua or Joseph? We’re each given gifts which with to serve our Lord and His people.
So, after seeing countless biographies of many of the same women in Christian history, ala Amy Carmichael, Susanna Wesley, Sarah Edwards, Katrina Luther — what a blessing to have volumes telling of the devout lives of Margaret Wilson, Olympia Morata, Edith Cavell, Juliana von Stolberg, Queen Jeanne d’Albret, Johanna and Henriette Kuyper … and you ask “Who?”
Like me, perhaps you’ve never heard of these ladies before. But now they are beloved sisters to us in the faith, whose stories we’ve loved reading and sharing with others.
Because it’s a joy every time to get an opportunity to discover the special contributions of the unsung heroines.
