In continuance of my reading challenge, I give you my review on a Biography.
Life of Washington by Anna C. Reed
Originally Published in 1842
George Washington led an exemplary life of service to God and his country, from his very boyhood. Raised by godly parents, they instilled in him a sense of honestly and duty, which proved him well in his many roles as son, land surveyor, soldier, husband, General, guardian, land-owner, benefactor, master, state representative, and President of the United States.
Miss Reed tells us about the life of one man, used of the LORD in many diverse ways of many years. Pulling from legends, letters, diary excerpts, personal testimonies, and using engaging narration, she paints a picture of the life of George Washington, as well as the events leading to the start of the country that he helped to found.
This book proved both interesting and well-written, often binging the reader back to the Bible with Scriptures and reminders of God’s promises.
I truly enjoyed reading Life of Washington. It rarely grew dull, and when it did, those sections were short. Much of what I read, I had studied before, but it was good to refresh my memory.
General Washington always has been one of my heroes and this book confirmed that in the best of ways.
To the KING be all the glory!
