Faith – Love – Hope

One of the greatest couples of their time

Rarely does one set out to become great. In most cases, those who seek greatness fall short of leaving a lasting legacy.

But for a few, greatness is awarded for a lifetime of dedication that made a significant difference in the lives of others.

As a differentiating value, Greatness means remarkable; of major significance or importance; larger than others of it’s kind.

Charles and Susannah Spurgeon are one of those rare couples. They were truly one of the greatest couples of their time.

  1. For me, it is the enduring statement that behind a man’s success is a woman. With the support of Susannah, Charles Spurgeon will never be able to focus on the thing that he does best – preaching.

  2. Thanks for commenting, Trevor – great insight. I believe we highly underestimate the value we add as a spouse ‘just’ by supporting.
