As a nation, America is far above the rest. Her incredible history wrapped around the borders of this great land is vastly outstanding and incomparable. Fascinating stories of strong conviction, powerful heroism, and landmark adventures create and form a tale of legacy that cannot be denied.
Women and men alike have sacrificed their dreams, convenience, and even their lives and the lives of their loved ones in dedication to the, “Land of the Free,” with the aspirations and hope that it would become and remain a place of security and faith for generations to come.
The American Woman’s Bible intertwines God’s rich word with incredible tales of women’s involvement in the shaping and formation of such a beautiful country. Women who could not suffice being a passive spectator, but rather had a deep sense of ownership for this land, and responded by dutiful action.
Women such as Prudence Wright and Sarah Shattuck, who led a group of women armed with only pitchforks to guard their village and their children, during the battles of Lexington and Concord. They teach us about contagious bravery. A women named Angelina who was deeply involved in the Abolitionist movement and didn’t avoid controversy as she spoke publicly to various social classes and to an audience of all races, during a time that it could cost her greatly. She taught a 4-Tier approach to ending slavery: Read the Bible, Pray, Speak truth, and Act on your convictions. Ann Hennis Bailey dressed as a man in order to ride as a regular scout for the army, she felt so greatly about her freedom that she masqueraded as a man in order to become a soldier.
These stories will change you.
It inspired my soul and revived a spirit of American patriotism while reading the bold stories of women who courageously fought for a country that today is wildly taken for granted. It creates passion to the reader, to no longer be a spectator, but to actively engage in standing up for what is right and good. Abigail Adams, wife of John Adams, said it best. “We possess a spirit that will not be conquered. If our men are all drawn off and we should be attacked, you would find a race of Amazons in America.” They fought for what they believed in. We should take direction and teaching from such beautiful noble individuals.
