Jody Ingalls will tell the story of four women from history.

Sarah Bush Johnston Lincoln relates how her life intertwined with Abraham Lincoln’s and how, as his “angel mother,” she helped shape one of the most famous leaders of all time.

Jenny Lind describes how her lucrative 1850’s tour of the United States intersected with everyday life in Elizabethtown, KY, and sings songs for the audience as the “Swedish Nightingale.”

Lottie Moon tells how God transformed her from a mischievous trouble-maker to a world-traveling missionary, saving lives and changing China forever.

Civil War nurse Martha tells how Morgan’s Christmas raid of 1862 impacted Elizabethtown, KY, and how the life of one soldier changed her own.
