Sojourner Truth - A Woman of Courage and Conviction

By Rebecca Price Janney, May 14 2019 07:47PM

What is the scariest thing you've ever experienced? Have you ever faced down a mob coming at you with clubs? That's exactly what one of my 19th century female heroes, Sojourner Truth, did on a seminal day in 1844.


She was born in slavery at the end of the 18th century, and upon her emancipation, she prayed for a new name. She took Sojourner because she was prepared to preach the gospel everywhere she could. She chose Truth as a last name because her message was about God's truth. Her mission blessed many, and sometimes cost her dearly.


I share her story in my latest podcast.
