- Joel R. Beeke, President, Puritan Reformed Theological Seminary, Grand Rapids, Michigan

- George Grant, author, pastor, and President of the King’s Meadow Study Center
“When I read this beautifully illustrated book to my grandchildren, I choked up a few times encountering the beauty of marriage and the wonderful way Katie served the Lord in her generation...now she was inspiring the rising generation of my own family. What blessing!”
- Scott Brown, pastor at Hope Baptist Church, Wake Forest, North Carolina, and President of the National Center for Family Integrated Churches
“Where should our teaching of the historical Reformation begin? With young children. Here is a brilliant and effective way to introduce...Katharine von Bora’s exciting life, as she married the number one most-wanted man in the Holy Roman Empire, Martin Luther, guided their family through trying times, and set a Christian example so badly needed in our day.”
