Susanna Wesley is referred to the Mother of Methodism because of the way she taught her methods to her sons, Charles and John, who started the Methodist Church. The youngest of 25 children, she herself raised 10 children with her husband, Samuel, who was an itinerant preacher. He observed how patient she was with her children, all of whom she homeschooled. She also found time to spend one hour per week, one-on-one, with each of her children! Her prayer life was very important to her and the kids all knew that when Momma had her apron pulled up over her head, she was NOT to be disturbed, as she was praying!
