Abigail and John Adams easily qualify as America’s first power couple!
Abigail Adams was influenced by her father, a Congregational minister, but also by her grandfather, a Speaker of the Massachusetts Assembly, and became the wife of our second President and the mother of our sixth!
There were years of separation for Abigail and John Adams, resulting in over a thousand letters— Abigail often citing biblical references.
On July 14, 1775, in a letter to John referring to the newly written Declaration of Independence, she referenced Matthew chapter 7:24-25: “May the foundations of our new Constitution be justice, truth and righteousness. Like the wise man’s house, may it be founded on these rocks and then neither storms or tempests will overthrow it.”
The Bible—its influence throughout history!
