...she trained her sons, John and Charles Wesley, in a style of Christian discipline and spirituality that would forever leave its mark on Christianity. 

Out of a life of conflict and danger Susanna Wesley brought a new vitality to the religious life of the world.  Married to Anglican pastor Samuel Wesley, she gave birth to 19 children.  

Amidst the hardships of an impoverished early eighteenth century English home, she trained her sons, John and Charles Wesley, in a style of Christian discipline and spirituality that would forever leave its mark on Christianity.

"Mother of Methodism"  

The dramatic power of the Christian witness of this "Mother of Methodism" lived on as her sons' ministries of preaching, organizing and singing changed history.  

Susannah inspired her people as they struggled not only to survive in harsh times but to live triumphant lives of faith.  Susanna's courage and devotion reveal a message for today.   _________________________
