GODLY MOTHER/BEHIND THE SCENES: (Wesley Brothers)

Susannah Wesley was one of the most terrific mothers of all time. Susannah’s father was a minister and she was born in England in 1669 as the youngest of twenty-five children! Susannah was married at 19 to Samuel Wesley, also a minister and, not to be outdone, she had nineteen children herself. Her husband was always gone for church meetings, planting, and revivals, so the responsibility of raising kids was hers. She always wanted to do big things for God and she did by humbly raising children to serve God.


With so many children, Susannah devised a way to spend time with them. She spent one hour each day praying for her 19 children. In addition, she took each child aside for a full hour every week to discuss spiritual matters. She also expected each child to be able to read the Book of Genesis by the time he or she was six years child.
