Episode 7 - Emily Woodmansee

In this episode of Poets of the Restoration, we learn about the life of Emily Woodmansee. She was born as Emily Hill in Warminster, England, on March 24, 1836, to hardworking but spiritually ambivalent parents. Having an intense desire for salvation at a young age, she sought answers regarding the truth and found it from her cousin Miriam, a recent convert to the Church. Emily later traveled to America at age 20 and arrived in the Salt Lake Valley in early 1857. She eventually married Joseph Woodmansee, had eight children, and became a strong advocate of women’s rights. The poetry she wrote is a call to trust in the Lord—regardless of the hardship that follows—and a reminder that through our trials we can strengthen our faith and eventually become one with God.
