Jane Pearson (1735-1816) was a minister in the Society of Friends whose life, in many ways, resembled that of Job. About a year after her marriage, having begun in earnest to take up her cross and follow the Lord, she found that her “false rest was broken,” and for a period of fourteen years was made to wade through inward troubles and afflictions that were “far beyond her power of description.” And when there was at last an abatement of inward trials, then outward troubles poured in like a flood, and over the course of some years, she lost her husband and seven children to a variety of illnesses. But according to Christ’s promise, the more she gave up of this world and its treasures, the more she gained of eternal riches, and her experiences of God’s power and mercy in her latter years were truly a hundredfold more than all she had lost.

Friends Library Publishing exists to freely share the writings of early members of the Religious Society of Friends (Quakers), believing that no other collection of Christian writings more accurately communicates or powerfully illustrates the soul-transforming power of the gospel of Jesus Christ.
