As a young girl she had no formal education, but God put in her a desire to read and learn. She voraciously did this through the availability of her fathers library. She even taught herself to read Latin and French!
As a woman she birthed 6 children and then suffered the loss of Susanna at age 2, Elizabeth as stillborn, and yet again of her Charles at the mere age of 30.
She faced societal scrutiny when her husband did the unthinkable at the time, of providing legal representation for the Brits at the boiling point for Massachusetts just before the war.
She spent 3 years without her hubby while he was away in Europe. While “alone” she was able to homeschool her children not only with books, but with the Book. She continued to run a business, ran the farm, made investments, helped the homeless, and used her own belongings to make bullets for the Revolutionary War. She lived with her 4 children in the midst of a beginning war and all the dangers that surround it while also being married to a man the Brits wanted dead.
She willingly spoke out against slavery when not even our forefathers had the gusto to.
She even worked a little espionage being a war correspondent.
Not only wife to the second president, but mother to the sixth.
Mrs. Abigail Adams, intensely loved her country and was an absolute pillar of dignity, integrity, honor, strength, intelligence, & decency. It is as if she took Proverbs 31 and just put a check mark next to each verse as she lived out her life. So amazing, I am so inspired to continue on this journey in the greatness He has graciously given me.
What would your husband be quoted saying about you?
