If you’ve listened to this podcast long, you know that I love a good biography. I am passionate about learning from saints who can teach us how to run and finish the race of faith well. Today’s biography episode is about just such a heroine of the faith: Amanda Berry Smith. Amanda played so many roles in her lifetime: mother, evangelist, preacher, missionary, and advocate. The newspapers of her day called her, “God’s Image Carved in Ebony.” If you have never heard her story, then I can’t wait to introduce you in this podcast episode.
Most of the information used in this podcast episode was taken directly from Amanda Smith’s biography: An Autobiography. The Story of the Lord’s Dealings with Mrs. Amanda Smith the Colored Evangelist.
However, I also gained information about her life from the following resources. If you’d like to learn more about her, I hope you’ll take the time to research her life for yourself! There are so many great resources out there; this is just a start.
