“This story impressed upon me the importance of godly friendships, especially among Christian women. It also encouraged me in my work. Sometimes God calls his children to serve him in the study, in the pulpit, and in the courtroom, as he did Martin Luther. Sometimes he calls his children to serve him by bearing children, caring for the sick, and butchering chickens, as he did Luther’s wife.
Sometimes he calls them even in their elder years to take up their pen and write for the love of the generations who follow them, as he did Mrs. Casemier, whom her friend calls the “Grandma Moses” of writing. I am glad he did.”
—Sarah Mowery, children’s and youth literature reviewer, Perspectives in Covenant Education
