The Miracle of Motherhood – Martha Van Orsdol Shaw Farnsworth

Martha Shaw Farnsworth (1867-1924) – Diarist

“Today, at 12 minutes past 1 o’clock p.m. my precious, wee girlie came to her mother….The dearest, sweetest, little treasure a mother had….As soon as she was all here, all suffering ceased and I feel as strong as an ox.” January 1892, Topeka, Kansas

Sadly, Martha’s only child, Mabel Inez Belle Shaw, would die just six months later, and the following year, so too would her husband. kqd
