Multi-generational Jonathan Edwards

Jonathan Edwards Married Sarah Pierrepont in 1727 and together committed to raise their eleven children in the respect of God. Their success as parents was revealed in a study done in 1900, showing that their descendants included 13 college presidents, 65 professors, 30 judges, 100 lawyers, a dean of a prestigious law school, 80 public office holders, nearly 100 missionaries, 3 mayors of large cities, 3 governors, 3 United States Senators, 1 comptroller of United States Treasury and 1 Vice-President of the United States!

Comments – If ever there was a strategy for reforming our state and our nation, this is the one strategy that can not be stopped. Faithful, multi-generational parenting in the fear of God. If a few God fearing men, would poor their life into their great-grandchildren and make decisions based on our responsibility to future generations the impact would be felt for centuries to come.
