Florence Nightingale was born into a life of wealth and privilege, in an age when women were expected to simply marry, have children and not do much else. But in response to a call from God, Florence dedicated her life to helping the sick – unheard of in Victorian England. In the Crimean War, she saved countless lives and came back a hero, sought after by royalty and governments around the world. Florence Nightingale dedicated her life to establishing the modern profession of nursing. She was motivated by the teachings of the Bible and her love for God.
Her story inspires us to return to the Word of God and challenges us to rediscover God’s purpose for our lives.
