THREE THINGS we can learn from Katie Luther:

  1. Katie was the mistress of her domain

    Being the Mistress of the domain is GROUND LEVEL foundational work – it is critical to operation of LIFE. Katie’s care of the home and her commitment to God served to propel the theological work of Martin Luther and today when we read our Bibles in our own Language we can think of a woman who faithfully made the way for her husband to preach and teach and REFORM.

  2. Katie engaged in theology

    While Katie served in her home she was also engaging in theology and the reform with Martin and his guests. Katie was spiritually inquisitive and a critical thinker. She would ask her questions to Luther and also be involved in their Table Talk discussions.

  3. Katie was not a victim – she was committed to the Lord

    Reformation women – their thoughts were not “let me see how I can advance the cause of women or any special victimized class – it’s how can I advance the gospel and make the Gospel of Jesus Christ known?” Elise Crapuchettes – Sheologians
