Their names are not in the record books, but they were history makers among women because they did for their generation what needed to be done. Sometimes this task was waiting and praying; at other times it was building new homes in strange lands for the sake of freedom of belief. Some women worked as midwives, missionaries, and teachers in addition to home duties. One became a poet, another a supporter of higher education for women. The terror and unrest of war was known to many of them. These 15 stories of Mennonite Brethren and Krimmer Mennonite Brethren women, spanning two continents and several generations, call all readers, young or old, male or female, to greater commitment.
