Catherine Booth

Wednesday, March 19, 2014

As a Salvation Army Officer and as a woman, I look up to Catherine Booth, often known as the Mother of The Salvation Army. Together with her husband, William Booth (The Salvation Army's first General) she started a church (Christian Mission) with the intent of ministering to the lost - on the street - person - who might not even be welcome in the traditional churches.

The salvation Army celebrates 150 years in existence next year - 2015
And has a church presence in 127 countries.


A woman who I look up to in my life right now, is my good friend and Mentor Martha. She is a woman of integrity. She helps you to see the bigger picture. She is a Godly woman whose heart burns with passion to serve the Lord.

    Wonderful blog, we all need a positive rolemodel that we can identify with & look up too. What an honor for Martha to be your rolemodel.

    That was an amazing statement that the holy ghost, and the bible can't contradict each other. she was definitely a person who pathed the way for women's rights as equals.
