"I would caution you from my own experience, never to sit down and reason what you should do in this or that perplexity, but go at once to the Lord with it, distrusting your own heart- which is deceitful above all things-but trusting Him, which you may safely do." ~ Mary Winslow
Mary Winslow (b. 1774) married Thomas Winslow and bore him ten children. Widowed at forty, newly immigrated to the United States, and responsible for nine children, she experienced much affliction and sorrow. Out of these trials her faith came forth as gold and her deep communion with Christ continues to be a help and comfort to many.
"The letters of Mary Winslow are a rich treasury of experiential and practical divinity. Living, vital Christianity is here set before us in undeniable reality. Read this book prayerfully, and let Mary Winslow be your spiritual mentor." - Joel R. Beeke
